Let It Snow

Oh the weather outside is frightful...

It has been snowing every other day for the past 2 weeks. It makes me want to go sledding and Christmas shopping! Or maybe just curl up on the couch with a gallon of hot chocolate- that's more like it.

We decided to do a little playing in the snow:

Josh throwing snow at Lilo

Taking a break

Jumping for joy (or to keep warm)

Lilo likes eating snow

Lilo's snow face

Josh's snow face

The end!

The Search for Boots

I love shoes. I can't always find a pair of jeans that fit just right, but I can always find a pair of shoes that fit perfectly. I came to Fargo with a shoe wardrobe made up of flip flops and peep toes. As I have recently discovered, that's not going to cut it.

With winter approaching, I have been looking everywhere for boots. And I mean everywhere. I'm a little (okay, a lot) picky when it comes to clothes shopping, so that may have something to do with it. We looked everywhere in Fargo and I tried on countless boots, but I couldn't find any that fit right or looked good. The whole process was very frustrating.

We decided to take a day trip to Minneapolis this past weekend and do a little boot shopping while in town. Josh and I were prepared to be trying on boots for hours. Surprisingly, at the first store we went in I found not only one, but two pairs of boots that I liked and both happened to be on sale. Seriously!?! My luck changed and I finally found boots that were both cute and warm.

So now I feel a little more prepared for winter. Next I have to accept the fact that I won't be seeing my flip flops for a very long time...

The Little Things

As a newlywed, you realize what things are really important in life. After 10 months of being married, here is my answer: the little things.

Starting a life together is beyond wonderful, but it's also hard. Being in a new city and being a little tight on money has brought its challenges. We've had to cut back and spend a lot of evenings at home. But those evenings have been some of the best. It's just the little things: watching our favorite movies and quoting every line, rearranging furniture, eating nachos at 1 a.m., wearing ridiculous footie pajamas, laughing so hard our stomachs hurt. Life is fun together.

Yesterday was my birthday. Josh and I spent the entire day together, went out to eat sushi, and finished by cuddling to a movie. We hadn't eaten sushi in months, so we were pretty excited. Although we didn't do anything big, it was a nice day. I appreciated just spending time together and enjoying the little things. Everything is better together.

"It's not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving, I'll tell you one thing it's always better when we're together."
