Birthday, Blizzard & Baby

This weekend has been fantastic. I mean really...pretty unforgettable in my book. It all started with a special birthday: the big 2-5! (on 2/5 none-the-less) It was a pretty easy-going day overall, with plans in the evening to head out to a new sushi restaurant I have wanted to try. I was joined by friends and family, and the night was really a good time. Thanks for coming everyone, much love. :)
The talk of the town on Friday had been the blizzard being monitored, coming up from the south. And as we sat and enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner....it hit!! My mom had been gracious enough to baby-sit Noa, but that also meant we'd have to make the trek to her house to pick up Noa in the crazy snow. Not so fun. Probably one of the scarier drives I've ever been on, but I am quite thankful for a husband who navigates the snow with ease! We made it home, and the snow continued to pummel South Jersey.
By the time we woke up Saturday morning, about 15 inches were piled on the ground, while the snow still fell. We sure as heck made the best of it...cinnamon rolls, homemade bread (my new favorite hobby by the way), playing, playing and more playing--it was an incredible Saturday. It only got better when we ventured outside to experience the snow. I am not sure what Noa thinks of it...she doesn't love when it hits her face, but she tolerated it at least. I also got to spend some time going on snow hunts, making angels, and crawling in igloos with my buddies Riley and Grayson.
As I sit and watch the SuperBowl with Bryce now, I am thinking that the memories made this weekend will be sticking around a while...between blizzards, a birthday, and that delightful baby I live with, how could it not be? Enjoy the pictures to follow! :)
