Spring Blizzard!

We have a blizzard warning here in Denver! It wasn't too bad earlier, but by the time I was allowed to go home (around 12:30) from work, you couldn't see anything in front of you! I had my jacket zipped all the way up to my nose, but my hood wouldn't stay on because of the wind. There is about 8 inches on the ground now and they are forecasting around 18" total by morning. Luckily, the Subaru is AMAZING in the snow - you start to slide and it literally 'snaps' you back into a straight course. It was fabulous and the easiest drive in the icy mess I've ever had. It let up earlier and Jamie and I went to the grocery store to get some things, then he's off on a tour with one of his bands now! So, I'm home alone with the animals, but it's warm and cozy!

Some pictures from Florida in January

Here are some pics from my trip to Florida at the end of January... Macy, me and Jamie on the beach, Brian and Jenny (drinking soda)...

Snow Snow Snow.

The weather casters here in Denver are the worst! I checked the weather report this weekend for the week ahead so I could plan my work clothes - there was no sign of snow except a possible flurry on Wednesday. Then on Sunday night, they predicted an inch on Monday morning around 6:30... well, I woke up on Monday morning to 3 inches already and it was snowing sideways! All in all, we got about 5 inches. It was a mess on the drive to work, but everyone made it safe. I'll be glad when I have an AWD car!

Snowing again...

It's snowing again - and it was 70 degrees this weekend! It dropped quickly today, it was light jacket weather early this afternoon, and by 4 or 5 it had dropped at least 15 degrees...and now it's snowing like crazy! We are supposed to get 2-5 inches, but about 3 inches has already fallen and it's only been snowing for a few hours. More pictures attached, Macy playing in the snow (she attacks it as it falls), our house (with new lights), and what the city looked like on Sunday from the museum (it was warm and sunny!).

Macy going crazy

I have been trying to teach Macy how to bark on command...however, she now thinks that when I say bark, she should roll over! So I have started just barking back at her (yes, I'm crazy too) and she goes crazy. Here's just a little fun we have...

Trimming the Tree

I decorated our little tree on my birthday as well - we found cool black ornaments and have some red and silver ones too - I think it came out pretty well! We are betting on how long it will take for the cats to get up into it - luckily I think most of the ornaments are shatterproof...

Happy Birthday to Me!

Hi everyone!
For my birthday, Jamie and I were planning on going to the zoo - however, the forecast called for 45 degrees - so we decided to go to the aquarium instead...which was good, since it was snowing like crazy (that wasn't in the forecast!) We then went to Steuben's - a really good restaurant/diner and I had caramel granola french toast made and served in a little cast iron skillet - it was so yummy! We then came home and played with the dog a little, and then I had to finish up my final design project for school. It was a pretty good birthday though :)
