Snow in October

I have very sad news…it snowed this weekend…not just a few flakes or a light dusting, but almost-covers-the-grass kind of snow.  I know that’s not that huge of a deal for Alaska, but this is the first time I’m really seeing it.  And I am not happy about it.  Not only is it messing with me thinking Christmas is coming instead of Halloween, but our apartment is on the chillier side and I don’t want to turn the heat on yet.  I’m in denial.

Aside from the weather, I rather enjoyed the past three days.  Friday Ethan and I watched 21 Jump Street and snuggled on the couch.  Saturday we got a few staples from the grocery store and picked up some packages from the post office, which included the programs I lost when my computer went nutso last week.  A friend came over for some video games with Ethan while I blogged, and we watched two spooky-type films (I feel like I’m giving Roxanne a run for her money with her marathon).  I also popped delicious Ladyfinger popcorn and splurged by eating a big bowl all by myself (sans butter of course).  Sunday Ethan and I grabbed Subway and groceries and settled into the evening by catching up with my parents on Skype.  I rounded out the night by tuning in to Revenge–such a perfect close to the weekend!

What did your weekend look like?  Do you have anything fun planned for the next five days?

  2. SNOW! As I am in Dallas where it is supposed to hit 88 today, I am super jealous. I would gladly celebrate any holiday with snow. xo

    Oh my gosh… My heat would definitely be on if it snowed! You better have some thick blankets!! (I recommend faux fur ones! Kevin and I will fight over ours!) I just started watching Revenge on Netflix last week and can’t wait to catch up! SOOO good! And side note: Your dog is adorable!

    1. We definitely have a faux fur and it’s working overtime!

  4. Lady finger popcorn!? Sounds delicious! Especially with snow on the ground. I’m kind of jealous, it’s still summer here in Florida! Can’t wait for a cold breeze.

    1. =) Smallest kernel, so tasty…we ate some tonight too! With a high of 35 this week, I’m hoping for a warm wind!!

  5. No way!!! gosh… sorry…but Simon looks precious in his sweater….that is almost worth it! plus popcorn?! Seems like you handled it perfectly. I have the feeling this is just the beginning in Alaska!

    1. Simon loves his manly sweaters, I can’t wait to add more to his collection! And yes, it definitely is the beginning!

  6. you are DEF giving me a run for my money!! I have SO MUCH movie watching to do…
