I feel like this weekend is the longest weekend ever and I'm definitely not complaining. Today we had our second snow day in a row. We woke up to so, so much snow; it was truly a winter wonderland. Unfortunately Hank had to go to work but I had a great day doing absolutely nothing more than reading and lounging in bed until noon! I don't do that very often, but when I do I enjoy it so much. There's nothing better than sipping hot tea, reading, and looking out on falling snow. I feel lucky I got to take two days off of work in a row, and somehow it made me more excited to go back in on Monday. Weird.
So, after reading in bed this morning, I finished the book Dear John by Nicholas Sparks. I really loved it. I will say though, that I don't think it's for everyone. Half of my friends won't like it, and the other half will feel the same way I do. I am a total sucker for romance- I loved The Notebook and this was written by the same author, and I enjoyed it just as much. I would recommend it to those of you who like emotional books about love and loss, and especially if the movie trailer interested you. After reading it, I am 1,000 times more excited about seeing the movie, and I feel like the casting is so spot on it's crazy. Have any of your read it? If so, what did you think? And speaking of book recommendations, I'm working on a 5 book recommendation post that I will probably publish tomorrow evening. :)
Hank came home for lunch today, and after he went back to work I went on a walk downtown through the beautiful scenery. We live right in the heart of downtown, just one block from the square, so its nice to be able to walk everywhere. I trudged through all of the snow and snapped a couple of photos, but then it started to storm again and I had to kind of run back but I made it inside before it got too crazy!
I made a little video of some of the clips from today too if you'd like to take a peek. It's nothing too special, I just threw it together really quick but it makes me happy to watch. Oh, and the song is by Gregory and the Hawk- it's the Fin Song 8 Orange River Remix.
some photos from sushi last night -
I love love love seaweed salad! If you've never tried it you should order it next time you visit a Japanese restaurant. Seaweed is really healthy and so yummy.
Terriayki tofu, and a little cucumber roll peeking out of the top corner. So delicious.
We topped off our meal with a shared dish of green tea ice cream. Another must-try if you haven't!

tonight, in the falling snow!
and here's my daily outfit pic...sans winter coat, scarf and boots! I got a lot of formspring comments about how I should include outfit information so here you go:
cardigan- Forever 21
shoes- Marc by Marc Jacobs
One more thing- remember these shoes?
A lot of you asked about them, and they're finally up online at Target. Click here to visit and maybe buy them. :)
I hope all of you have the best night. It's still snowing outside so I'm curious to see what the morning will look like! Until then...
