Oh, how I have missed all of you! First off, wishing everyone a very happy and blessed new year! Second, I hope everyone is safe and sound from this insane blizzard we just had Inshallah (God Willing), and third I want to apologize for not posting as much 😦 I have been extremely busy with other projects (which I will be sharing with you all soon) so hopefully it will make it all up ❤
OKAY! Who else has gained 390598469486389568036 pounds from being snowed in with junk food for the past 4 days?! Literally! The last time a blizzard like this had occurred was in 2010, goodness. It’s funny because, my family and I didn’t really make a big deal out of it thinking “Oh, it wont’ even snow…” Boy, were we ALL wrong haha. Thankfully we had got our groceries done (which again we thought wouldn’t be a big deal), but on Friday when the blizzard began my mom and I were like “ummm… I think we should get some candles and batteries…”
Of course, when we arrived to the store EVERY.SINGLE.AISLE. was wiped out, gone, zero! We both stood there laughing. There were no batteries, no candles, no shovels, no dairy products everything was gone. I’m laughing while typing this, it was hysterical. Luckily we got some groceries but still. I cannot express how beautiful the snow looked while falling down to the ground, it was so serene. I love, love, love, snow. Many were complaining, but I enjoyed the moment ❤ Yes. I enjoyed that 2 ft. of snow…
I was so prepared, that I had a list of things I wanted to bake and cook (which I did). I have been so busy with work, that staying home and cooking is what I missed the most ❤ And of course my family enjoyed it as well. Before the blizzard got worse, I had my wonderful photo shoot! I have always wanted a “winter wonderland” photo shoot for a blog post, and luckily I got it good (thanks to my brother) Alhamdulilah (Thank you God).
Now the after math of this snow is a pain…streets are horribly slippery. Cars are sinking in under the snow, our entire neighborhood since yesterday have been helping each other out to get cars out and its impossible! So whoever is having car trouble, good luck to you I totally feel your pain because mine is still stuck! I went to shovel it out yesterday and I just ended up rolling around in the snow with my little brother and building a mini “glow in the dark” snow man. Haha.
But on a happy note, please feel free to share your stories with me in the comment box below about your “Snow Storm Jonas” experience, cooking, baking, shoveling whatever it may be! I would love to hear it ❤
I know, I know. Many of you are thinking “Oh my God…she’s wearing WHITE?!” Yes my pretties…I am. I have had this authentic fur vest & hat for SO long that it was worth wearing for this shoot. My obsession with fur is endless. What do you ladies think?
