Dark Florals

I have been snowed in due to the massive blizzard that is randomly named Nemo for about 32 hours now. I'm hoping that tomorrow I can get out of the house and do something because I do not handle cabin fever well. Seriously...I am another day's travel ban away from running away and living in the woods, never to be seen again. The only thing I did today was spend about three hours shoveling the three-foot tall snow mounds off of our two porches. I ended up making a mini snow fort out of one of the mounds. I made it bigger, but it collapsed on me before I could get a picture of it... :(

On a more exciting and less melodramatic note, I received some very good news last night. I've been accepted to one of the three schools I applied to for grad school! :D I was so excited when I received the e-mail that I kind of did a little happy leap down the hallway...lol. I'm going to wait to hear from the other two schools before making a decision, but now either way I will definitely be able to start my journey towards becoming a librarian this year! It's really gratifying to finally have found something that I feel suits me so perfectly. Something that just fits with who I am and what I love.

I like to wear florals in the winter. It reminds me of warmer, simpler times...such as when I wore this same dress in the summer with just a pair of flats. Obviously, these pictures were taken pre-blizzard. I took some pictures today of the snow in my backyard and my doggy trying to make her way through it. She sort of sunk down under the snow and I had to rescue her. It was cute, amusing, and worrisome all at once. I think she was a little traumatized at the time, but she's fine now.

So far, being stuck inside has consisted of watching Kill Bill, Regular Show, Adventure Time, Rocko's Modern Life, and Harry Potter. I have also attempted to put together some outfits for Florida and currently Chris and I are playing online Scrabble together. I can't wait to be able to drive again. This is going to sound so typically girly, but I just want to go to the mall! The new two-floor Forever 21 just opened and I'm ready to go to town on it! :)
