Saturday was breezy, dare I even say warm? Mind you in Chicago during the winter we often confuse seeing sunshine with being "warm." It was probably in the high 30s. But boy did that two hour window of sunshine feel dreamy.
Har and I made the most of the balmy weather and went on a two hour walk. On our way home we bought some fire wood and some vodka- winter essentials in case we got the snow everyone was predicting we might.
We woke up Sunday morning to see that we most definitely got some snow. So much snow we couldn't move our car to go get the Super Bowl groceries we so badly needed: ie ground beef, Velveeta, beans, ext. So mountain man Chris set out by foot in the midst of the blizzard to go get his snacks.
I attempted to go with him, but then I quickly convinced Chris the five block walk to Trader Joe's was much too far and we should probably just do our shopping at CVS instead. It just made more sense. And I shop at CVS for food more than I'd like to admit. Buying dusty boxes of food isn't so bad after you do it a few times. Big shout-out to the grossest CVS in Chicago on Fullerton and Lincoln, you guys are my favs!
It was blizzard-like conditions all day. The snow just kept on falling. According to record books (Chris) this was the largest amount of snowfall Chicago has ever seen in a 24 hour period.
And so these two just sat by the window and watched. Because that's what you do in the Midwest. You talk about snow, bitch about snow, and continue to check the window to make sure that snow you "hate" hasn't stopped falling.
I attempted to make the most of my Sunday before I slipped into a food coma during the Super Bowl and gave my itty bitty guest room a revamp. Our old duvet cover had seen better days so I was anxious to exchange it with this new soft yellow Christy duvet cover.
I'll know I've made it when all of our bedrooms are big enough to have night stands on both sides of the bed. Can you imagine? Talk about luxury.
For now a new pretty bed cover will have to do. Christy is known for their amazing quality and this duvet certainly did not disappoint.
I knew I couldn't get all the photos until Harlow jumped in at least one. It just wouldn't be right.
It's Monday. There's two feet of snow in my backyard. I'm food-hungover. Let's do this.
