snowed in, well-fed

i was like a kid in a candy store
with the anticipation of the big storm that snowed us in last weekend
a friday off for my husband
made the whole thing even better
(i had house projects on the mind!)

we were well stocked and ready-
i hit the local farmer's market the week before and loaded up on winter root vegetables and fresh baked  breads

friday morning was spent at lowes and benjamin moore
(shockingly i was the only one in the home dec isles! ha...) 

we started the long weekend off right

grilled cheddar, butcher bacon, avocado + honey mustard
on great harvest's high 5 fiber (now at our farmer's market- yahoo!)

before getting down to business
i took a little "me" time
to knit and catch up with a friend

resulting in a super cozy
baby blizzard hat
for our newest next door neighbor
reid and i started painting at 8pm
with lights flickering
we watched the storm really pick up

by saturday morning
we woke to this
