it's a tsnownami!!!!

I couldn't help but title this post with my new favorite catch phrase! This weekend we were POUNDED with snow here in Minnesota, and it truly was a crazy blizzard! (I am sure you all have heard about the Metrodome ceiling crashing!) We got around 17 inches here and I cannot remember a snow storm this bad for quite some time.

Last night, I was supposed to head to my sister's house last night to help watch her boys so she could go to work, and ended up getting stuck in the snow attempting to get on the freeway.  Thankfully my husband packed me up with a shovel in my car, and 3 kind passerby's pulled over to help dig me out.  As if that wasn't enough, trying to turn around to get home I got stuck yet again,  and it required 3 people to get out to push my car out of the snow mound. (Did I mention that this all happened within not even 5 miles of my home?!) Oh, and you think I am done there...nope there's more!! I got stuck TWICE in my own driveway and my husband had to dig me out.  Needless to say, I didn't make it to my sister's house! (SORRY PAMMY!)  I am thankful for all the kind people that helped me out, and even more thankful that I was just able to make it back home safe!

The snow has finally stopped, and this morning the hubs and I went out to "evaluate" the damages and I am sure you will all get a kick out of what the aftermath is!

My front door & walk way

A more detailed view of the height of the snow.  I cannot handle that it actually has my door imprint on it! LOL!!

Snow fort anyone? :) Still my front yard just stacked high with snow!

Our back door is covered too! Snow, snow, everywhere!

On another side note, yesterday was Scott and mine's 8 year anniversary of being together! We don't really do anything big to celebrate it since we are married now, but I'm such a sap and like to still do something to recognize that we have made it through so much together over the past 8 years. We had plans to go on a dinner date, but with the weather being what it was, we postponed that to a lunch date today.

I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that we have made it to 8 years!! Wow! Part of me feels like it's been so much longer than that (in a good way) and the other makes me feel like it's been a blink and all that time has passed.  I am so thankful that I have been able to share my life with my very best friend and soul mate for all this time. God really brought us together, and formed a love story perfectly and uniquely for us, and I love that each day I find more ways to love and appreciate Scott for all that he is to be, and all that he has done for me. I never at 15 could have imagined what awesome thing Scott and I started in our lives that day when we started dating, but it's amazing to look back now and see all the great things that have come from that choice!  I love you more and more each and every day honey!

Our first date back in 2002, only a few days after we started dating.  Aww, young love!! <3
