First Snow Of The Season!

Happy Sunday! Did it snow by you yesterday? It feels like a bunch of different areas in the US woke up with snow on the ground the past few days. Have a great day 🙂


Yesterday was supposed to start a 6:30 am but when my alarm went off, I didn’t get up. I was still pretty tired so I opted for extra sleep instead of heading out bright and early for my run. I eventually got out the door a little before 9 and did 5 miles. I was a lot faster than what I intended my pace to be (oops!) and blame it on this being my second run in 6 days. During the beginning of my run, there were random flurries or snow but it picked up during the last 2 miles.


When I got home, Alex was helping his dad hang Christmas lights at his parents house so I stopped by to “help” (aka stand there while they worked) before heading to Target. I was on a mission to find ugly Christmas sweaters for my family’s Christmas Eve celebration. Luckily I found some good ones for both Alex and I while there. On my way home, I grabbed takeout for us for lunch. Cheesesteaks were a warm and filling meal on the snowy day. Plus some cheese fries because a certain boy called the order in…


The snow continued for most of the day and we got a decent amount for the first snow of the season. I took the above picture around 2:30 pm and it was still snowing! Driving made everything so pretty and white. I actually love driving in the snow when it’s falling since 1) most people don’t want to drive and 2) everything is undisturbed so it still looks nice.


I spent the afternoon reading on the couch and enjoying some tea. While reading, I lit my latest candle that I got from Home Goods. It’s White Cedar by Village Candle and it smells like a Christmas tree. If you have a Home Goods/TJ Maxx/ Marshalls near you go and check to see if this candle is in stock. It’s a huge jar and I spent about $10 on it which is an awesome price for such a large candle.


For dinner, I grabbed a pizza crust out of the freezer. We topped it with pizza sauce from Trader Joe’s (seriously the best sauce ever!), mozzarella cheese, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. 10 minutes in the oven and it was done. So much better and cheaper than take out pizza.

After dinner, we hung out by the fire and chatted for a while. Alex had a group meeting for a final project for his semester so we didn’t want to start a movie or anything. While he worked on his project, I watched the snow fall, typed this post (as I type this at 9:20pm, we have about 6 inches on the ground) and read “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe”.

Question of the day: Did you get snow where you live yet?

  1. Glad you had a good day! We ended up getting a foot and the original forecast was only for 1-3! lol! What a mess.
    HOpe the rest of your weekend is good.


  2. Okay, now I definitely need to try and find that candle at Home Goods!! I’m such a sucker for candles and that one looks like it would smell amazing!! We didn’t get snow here in central Arkansas, but we were surrounded by everyone who did!! I can’t wait until it makes it around here sometime soon! PS that pizza sure looks good!! It’s even better when it’s homemade!


    1. It smells like pine without being overpowering! I’ve burned it a few hours now and I swear it’s barely gone down at all. Definitely worth the $10 I spent on it! I hope you get snow soon too!! I love homemade pizza. One day I’ll even try to make the dough from scratch instead of using store bought.
