It snowed in Texas yesterday. Snowed. In. Texas. I’m sure most of you are aware those words rarely go together. And by rarely I mean about once in a million years or at least the first in my twenty. We’ve seen a few sprinkles and maybe even a couple to make a mini snowman, but this my friends, was legit snow.
Okay. So it wasn’t five feet of snow or anything, but it was enough to make lots of big snowmen AND play in the stuff. It was also enough snow for me, for the first time in 20 years, to have my first ever full- on snow day. I spent the rest of the day being a kid. I started off by making a mini snowman…
And later found a big one already made. It’s nose was too big so I changed it up a little bit.
That can NEVER be too big! Hee. So I was being a naughty kid. The day was spent entirely with friends and family,and I am oh-so-thankful that the snow decided to come on my day off. Lately, I’ve been trying really hard to be less of a big kid and more of an adult. I’m working diligently on initiative and getting things done. In the past week I’ve signed up for a writing club, registered for volunteering, and talked to a nice lady about a newspaper internship I’m extremely interested in. I’m getting shit done,man. I’m excited about my future and ready for it to start, but on a chance that I get to solely be the little kid in me again, I jump at it.
Katie and I started off on what we had already planned as a lunch date. Little did we know this would turn into a lunch/snowball fight day. We went back to her place after some delicious grinders (A delicious sandwich I had never heard of before but definitely recommend.) and had a war with her brother in the snow. That little boy has quite the throw on him and kept aiming for my face! Terd.
Later that night, I headed over to my parent’s house as I heard they had a lot of snow. (Husband worked the night shift so he couldn’t join.) MAN. They had a lot of snow. My brothers and I decided on tackling the worlds biggest snowball to EVER exist. I’m sure we didn’t break any records but that thing did get heavy. Justin and I were to the point where we both had to get a running start to even get the thing to budge. This resulted in good exercise and lots of laughs. We Texans are not used to the snow stuff!
Worlds biggest snowball? Ha. Looks more like a giant rock. I hear it’s pretty much the only thing still withstanding the sun today. I may not experience another day like this until I’m 40 or so, so I’m making sure to tuck this away in the most-treasured-memories section of my brain. Snow in Texas. Sheesh. Perfect big kid day.
