Snowpocolpyse Weekend!

Charlotte got an inch of snow over the weekend which is a BIG deal. The entire city shuts down -- literally bread flies off the shelf, ABC stores have lines out the door, etc. We were all too excited to hunker down this weekend, play in the snow, binge watch The American and simmer soup in the crockpot. The forecast predicted a decent snow fall but it ended up being a lot lighter than everyone had hoped. Anyway, a few snow weekend pictures...
After a quick family selfie -- Caroline's request obviously, we strolled down the street to meet our friends at a neighborhood party. There were tons of kids rolling around in the snow, a food truck and lots of parents excited to be out of the house. 
Caroline and Thomas experience their first sled ride...which ended a little off course. Both laughed hysterically and were begging to go down the tiny hill over and over and over.
Have you ever seen a more determined face?
In typical best friend fashion, Lisa had a mimosa poured and ready for our arrival.
To thaw out we headed down the street to another snowmageden party. It is still undecided who had more fun -- the kids or the adults.
On Sunday the roads were cleared up so a group of girls gathered to celebrate Abby's baby shower over brunch!
A few of the ladies!
For dinner (both nights) we enjoyed crockpot chicken enchilada soup (one of our very favorites)!

  1. Isn't it crazy that you got an inch and here in Winston I had close to nine? I think there may be four to five inches left. Ready for it to GO! I had to giggle at the kiddos hitting the tree (that would be something I would do!)

  2. I love Thomas sitting on the back of the sled eating his raisins, he has no idea what he is in store for! So precious! Glad the snow wasn't as bad as they thought and it didn't wreck your whole weekend :)

  5. We got about an inch up here in Maryland too. Usually its mass chaos at the grocery stores too but it wasn't too bad this time lol REALLY hoping Mother Nature doesn't dump as much on us as she did last year.

    xo, Jess

  7. I'm soooo jealous of your snow! I'm in Georgia and we were literally 20 miles south of where the snow stopped. Boooo. Our kids were so disappointed!

  10. Looks like a snow party indeed. I miss the south and how everything shuts down, my husband reminds me often that Maryland is not the south when it snows. Glad ya'll got to enjoy it!

  12. Seems like it was more ice than snow in the triangle area! Super excited to try out that enchilada soup -- I made your baked potato recipe this weekend and it was ah-mazing!

  14. What a fun weekend, I need a new neighborhood that has fun together!! I wish that things shut down with a little bit of snow, sadly in MI, it takes a lot to shut it down. My kids DO have a snow day today, but they are so over the snow, that they groaned when I suggested going out to play in it ;)
