Snowy Weekend

So this weekend the BF and I were supposed to venture to Texas for one of his friends weddings. Due to the weather conditions in TX (his parents had ice and 10 inches of snow, and his sister and bro-in law had ice too) the trip was postponed. I hope the wedding went well and I know that the weather conditions were problematic for a large portion of the guests. I know if that was my wedding I would be a hot-mess of stress and worry (not that I am not already like that) and to factor in the whole weather issue and half of the guests not being able to make the flight from their hometown due to snow would be tramatic.

I didn't work on Friday so I had the day to catch up on my DVR (did everyone see the Real Housewives of OC...CRAZY) and made a trip to the mall. In preparation for the afternoon flight I got up semi-early to be at the mall right when it opened at 9am. I guess I didn't get the memo because when I got to the mall the parking lot was empty. I was like, "Whoa, people must be staying in thinking it was going to snow" and as I get out of the car and walk up to the door at Macys I notice that the lights are still off and the doors are locked. I look at the sign and it says that the mall opens at 10am. I thought "OMG" and then I told myself no one saw me looking silly because I am the only one within sight. I get back in the Honda and drive to TJ Maxx thinking that would kill some time and thinakfully they were open so I could browse. (TJ Maxx makes me really antsy, and I don't like to paw through the racks and the shelves are never organized so I try to avoid it in general.) Eventually I went back to the mall and got what I needed. I enjoyed my Friday off and I am looking forward to President's Day which is my next 3-day weekend.

After finding out that the weather was going to prevent us from traveling I decided that it was going to be time for me to join the rest of the world and I broke down and got an iphone. I know that I am like the last person to have one (literally) and I haven't put it down since I got it.

16GB White iphone

I opted for the white one because I am not crazy about black electronics. If I had my choice all flat screens, computers, and everything electronic would be white or silver (the BF highly disagrees). My macbook is silver as is my ipod so getting a black iphone wouldn't work. 

I did put my phone down for a few minutes this weekend just long enough to take pictures with my camera. Here are a few shots from the game and Hagan in the snow.

UK vs. Vanderbilt. GO BIG BLUE

Lebron James was the "Y" for the KENTUCKY cheer

Hagan playing in the snow!

She wasn't crazy about having her picture taken!

Overall the BF and I had a great weekend. After the game we went bowling and we had a great time. I hadn't been bowling in ages and it was fun to do something different. I hope everyone had a great weekend and is staying warm.

Happy Snowy Sunday-

p/s- GIGIs is open in Lexington and the BF and were some of their first customers on Friday night!
