Kickin the Winter Blues

This is Matt & I's first Michigan winter. So far it has lived up to my expectations. We have pretty much had snow every day except one the past 2 weeks or more. 

The good thing is it is super easy to take Millie outside. She doesn't really have to sniff around for the right spot, or find grass or chew on every stick she sees. She just squats, pees, and goes back inside. Perfect! *Too much info!??!* 

The snow is taller than her in some places and she loves it! She tunnels her way through. 

The roads have been kind of gross.... they just can't keep them clean because it is always snowing... 

Matt has shoveled the driveway (and attempted to shovel) a few times now. 

It is really pretty. But, when you have to go somewhere, it's kind of frustrating. Having a garage is definitely a blessing!!!! 

Due to Millie being out in aforementioned snow... she was in desperate need of her first bath! 

Look at this poor little drowned rat pup... 

and then she was so clean and sitting pretty.... 

I had the urge to be a little crafty today. I have seen cute valentine's day buntings/garland floating around the internet world... so I decided to make my own. 

With the help of Mildred.. 

I'm not sure it's going to stay in this spot... but that's where it is for now. 

Tonight we had a snowy night in with our friend Brandon and Gabe. We had homemade jalapeno poppers made by Gabe. We drank homemade bubble tea, and ate brownies while we played Take 4. Gabe won, but I beat Matt (a victory in my book!)

It's been a good couple days off. Tomorrow night is back to work again for a couple nights... 

Do you have snow where you are?!?!?! 


  1. Of course, there is snow in Colorado, but the city I live in doesn't get it too often and often it melts within the next day or two! We have a lot of sunshine here too! :) I love snow, but I am not sure if I could handle it for several days in a row... LOL

  2. Haha, I can appreciate that bit of information about your dogs snow-pee habits! My dog gets so darn distracted every time we take her out to pee!
