When we moved to Minnesota earlier this year it was to a chorus of "Ohhh, just you wait until the end of October!" Then it became "Ohh just a couple more weeks and it's ON!" Now it's "This is unseasonably warm. You brought this weirdness from Arizona, didn't you?"
The only snow we've seen so far has been a tiny sprinkling on Friday. The kids were beside themselves. So was I to be honest. There was only enough to dip your fingertips in but they were floored nonetheless. We can't wait for a real snowfall!!
We also bought our tree this week. This is the first year I've had an artificial tree since my grandmother used to buy them when I was 11. I've learned a couple of things so far:
- These guys get needles EVERYWHERE
- The vacuum is not the best tool for picking them up (gotta fix that today)
- Trees look at LOT smaller when they are wrapped in that string stuff
- My cat likes to sleep under the tree
I'm not decorating it until Friday when I lug out the massive decoration boxes. We aren't going to be here for the holidays so I'm going to enjoy my decor as long as I can!
I dusted off my lensbaby on Saturday as part of a video review that I've been working on. I had my sweater, my husband's heavy jacket, my hat, gloves, scarf thing, boots, and jeans and I was STILL freezing!
Is the air in Minnesota supposed to hurt your face...?
