oh, the weather outside is frightful

This weekend was something of an adventure. On Friday night, we met up some of our closest friends (who live a couple states away) in Greenville, SC for Winter Jam. In a huge coliseum type place, filled with about fifteen thousand other people, we rocked out to some favorite Christian bands until midnight. The next morning, we woke up to a beautiful snowy sky. Sadly, none of the snow landed, but it continued to fall throughout the day. Of course, as the poor snow deprived people that we are, we didn't let the snow's inability to stick stop us from immensely enjoying it. We bundled up and took a long walk, snow covering our coats and hats, and wind relentlessly biting at our hands and faces. Once we couldn't feel our fingers anymore, we figured it was time to come in from the bitter winter weather and devour endless tea and hot chocolate in an attempt to thaw out. That night, it got down to below fifteen degrees- only zero degrees after you factor in the wind. The sky was completely black, branches fell from trees, and the wind made eery noises. So what did we do? Decide to go take another walk, of course. To make a long story short, we ended up running for our lives from the aliens and warewolves that were surely in hot pursuit. Because we're just that amazing. ;) 

Since then, I've mainly been trying to stay warm and get over the cold I seem to have gotten. That, and watching Downton Abbey. Love. Oh, and guess what? Tommorow's class is cancelled because of the snow and ice! Not like I'm excited or anything... 



  1. I loved this post!
    The first four photos kind of remind me of the new SAFE & SOUND music video by Taylor Swift for the Hunger Games! (Ahh it's fantastico.)
    Well, glad you made it safely home from the warewolves and aliens. ;)
    (OH. and i adore your blog background! where'd you find it?)

    1. Thank you, dear! And you're right, they kind of remind me of that, too! :)
      (Hmm, I honestly don't remember... I must've just searched for gray backgrounds on google or something.)
