In the south we rarely get snow. Its a treat when it actually covers the ground. We had lovely snow for less than two days, the 12th and 13th. We enjoyed it as much as we could while it was here. This was Grayson's first real time playing in the snow.
Grayson was very ready to play in the snow, but we were waiting on Daddy to come home first. He could hardly contain his excitement.

I felt silly using my umbrella out in the snow but I was trying to keep the flakes from melting on my camera. lol
"Mommy put me DOWN!!! I'm not done playing!"
I loved watching Grayson walk in the snow. Seeing his footprints were so precious.
I loved seeing my boy so happy in the snow.
Grayson loved watching & feeling the snow come down.

Nathan tried to get Grayson to make a snow angel. FAIL! He was so upset as you can see. What made it worse was he got snow up his shirt and that was the end of playing in the snow for a while.
He looks so grown up. About to strip Grayson down & put him into warm dry clothing.
My neighbors bloody Valentine snowman.
Nathan thought it would be funny to put Grayson in the planter.
He looks so grown up here.
He fell so much that he decided to just crawl in the snow. lol
I went out today with my Mom for breakfast and some shopping. I didn't have high hopes of finding anything but to my surprise I did. I have this image of what my style is but I rarely ever find any clothing represents it. Its so hard to find clothing that fits my body properly. Today was the day. I found clothing!!
I fell in love with this dress immediately. Although I already had in mind that it wouldn't look right on me. Usually if it fits in the chest area/arms it will be too tight in the hips/butt. Or if it fits in the hip/butt area it will be too big in the chest. I was surprised to find that this dress fits me all over. The only thing I need to do to this dress is get a cute little broach to pin the neckline. Its just a little to open and low neck to be left alone. It doesn't look like it is in the picture. I'd really like to find some cute red flats to go with this dress. I don't do heels (can't walk in them and I'm tall enough already).
I got excited when I found this shirt. I love this style. The only issue I had was I needed one size bigger. They didn't have this color in another size. I ended up with a blue version but I still love it!
Then I found this adorable yellow knit cardigan. I almost squealed with glee over this. I have been looking for a cardigan and in this color. I was even more excited when this outfit all came together. I was wearing gray corduroys to begin with, so not sure if that part goes. Another tidbit of info to make this even sweeter is that it was on clearance! I think the hat ties it all together too.
I spotted this bag and began to drool. Okay no not really. I've been needing a new purse and wanted something a little more grown up looking. Its chocolate brown and perfect. Its so big I can fit books, knitting, extra change of clothes for Grayson(in case of an accident), and a few other essentials. I'm not into blingy things so this is perfect. I love the flirty ruffles on the sides. I have been wanting a purse in a brighter color but I fell in love with this one. It made me even happier when I found it was on clearance and only $10. Score!
My attempt at taking a self portrait. I'll have to do it over with a tripod next time.
I think the blue still goes with the yellow.
A better view of the blue top.
The clothing purchased definitely represents my style. I bought everything at Cato's. I hope to go back soon because I saw several other tops I really like.
