Snow Day

It's snowing here in Dallas, and I get to spend my day at work (without much actual work to do). If you're in the same boat as I am, or just plain bored at work, here are a few gems I've found floating around the internet lately, along with a couple photos of what I wish my snow day looked like. Enjoy!

Gift It: Valentine's Day

Happy Monday, everyone! Today starts the last week of January, and the internet has already exploded with Valentine's Day madness. J and I aren't big celebrators of this day, mostly because we have several other "more important" holidays that follow close behind (birthdays and our anniversary, I mean). Because we'll be so far apart this year, and because he'll be coming to visit for his birthday/spring break in a month or so, J and I have decided to save our money and energy and not celebrate at all this year (not including a phone call or Skype chat, I'm sure). Nonetheless, it's hard not to love all the red and pink gorgeousness floating around the stores lately, so I've put together a few (budget-friendly) suggestions for gifts for the ladies. And yes, buying yourself a gift for Valentine's Day totally counts. Enjoy! (:
