Winter Wonderland

Remember how on Friday I told you that I was going to have to be traveling in the snow? Well, I didn't mention that Jeremy and I both were going to be heading to a marriage conference for the weekend. It was a work function for me, and since the conference was going to be focusing on strengthening marriages, Jeremy was able to tag along.

I didn't mention that Jeremy was coming with me mostly because I didn't want to make an announcement on the Internet that basically said, "Hello potential thieves and robbers; If you want an empty house to visit and peruse, drop in to Wade's World. Jeremy and Amy will be gone Friday morning through Saturday night. Beware of the not-so-vicious dog that could lick you to death!"

The conference was amazing and I have so many tidbits and advice on marriage that I want to share with you soon.

And yes, we saw snow! And we drove it it! And we didn't have an accident!

When we left our house it was beginning to flurry and Jeremy just knew that we were going to miss the snow event of the decade at home, while we were off gallivanting around. Luckily for Jeremy it started snowing on the drive up and although it was so pretty to see, it didn't start to stick until we were safely at our destination. Once there, we really enjoyed seeing how beautiful it was!

Isn't it pretty!

A pitiful marshmallow looking snowman (and no, we didn't make him!)

Jeremy and I enjoying the snow!

And get this. We had musical entertainment at the event and Jeremy and I couldn't get over how much the lead singer and my sister looked alike. Well, except for the fact that Kellyn is 9 months pregnant and the singer isn't. If you take that little fact out of the equation, Kellyn and Beth could have been twins. See for yourself:

Pretty similar, huh?

Well, we really enjoyed the snow, but I was also glad when it melted on Saturday. I couldn't live like that all the time! How about you? How was the weather in your neck of the woods?

And if you don't live in the wonderful South like I do, please feel free to poke fun at the big deal that we Southerners have been known to make over 2 inches of snow!

Have a great day!

I'm glad you had a great weekend! I'm glad our snow is melting and I've already declared I don't want to live anywhere that's colder than where we are. I'm waiting on shorts and sandal weather!!! : )
