my first snowy day in washington

To my awesome surprise, my day off consisted of playing in the snow  ... & well watching netflix but back to the important thing.  SNOW.. there is snow everywhere & I love it.  

You can't tell in these pictures but I am wearing 4 layers of tops & 2 layers on bottoms, plus 2 socks are on each of my feet!  Layering basic pieces are the key to being warm in this cold Washington weather!

In addition to my outfit pictures, I added a few pictures of my snow covered neighborhood, & they are gorgeous!

My Outfit

Black Vest: Old Navy
Yellow Plaid: Target 
Gray Sweatshirt: Old Navy

my first hockey game experience

Spokane Chiefs Hockey Game

With growing up in the South, I have never been to a hockey game.  So when Cody offered a Saturday night date night at the Spokane Arena to watch the Spokane Chiefs take on their rival team, Tri-City; I had to say YES!

| we got beers & $1 hot dogs for dinner while watching the game|

| for someone who has never watched a game before, it was extremely fun.  however, I wouldn't trade my college football for it.|

|best thing about hockey; the fights!!| 

|best way to end the night, the Spokane Chiefs BEAT their rival team in OT in a shoot out|

polka dot obsession

fun fact # 27361 : I love polka dots.  


Once I found this sweatshirt in Forever 21 on clearance for $7, I had to snatch it up! This outfit is made for comfy days for running errands or doing laundry in my case.  However, I do have 4 shirts on & 2 pair of leggings on to keep me warm from this crazy cold in Washington.  Plus this jacket is a steal from Old Navy, I purchased this back in Jacksonville for $40, but it was to small so I returned it.  But here in Washington, I found it on the clearance rack, in the size I needed, for ... wait for it... $17!

Jacket: Old Navy
Polka Dot Sweater: Forever 21
Chambray Top: Old Navy
Leggings: Ann Taylor Loft
Boots: Dillards
Necklaces: Ann Taylor Loft & Target
