I love a good blizzard!

Well, “Nemo” definitely found his way to New England [side note: I’m not really sure how I feel about naming blizzards, but I am definitely riding this Nemo wave]. I was planning on coming home for the weekend anyway, so when BSU gave us a snow day yesterday, my dad came down in the morning to pick me up. Here in the Merrimack Valley we got an average of 2 feet of the white stuff. Some places got more, some got less.

I think I made the right call in deciding to weather the storm at home with my family rather that stick it out in the dorms. Bridgewater State lost power last night, and according to what I can tell from friends and Twitter, it’s still not on. Also, I hear that they’re running out of food in the dining halls? That’s definitely not good.

On the other hand, my house is toasty warm and we haven’t lost power once. Yesterday and today have been spent curled up next to the fire, watching movies and consuming copious amounts of junk food with my mom. Blizzard, schmizzard…we’re in heaven! Meanwhile, the menfolk were sent outside to snowblow us out of this mess. I am definitely grateful for that!

Below, I’ve put together some pictures that my mom took of my sister trying to walk our dog, Madison, earlier. Whenever the weather gets bad, the show dog in Maddy comes out. God forbid snow mess up her hair or she smell like wet dog. The snow was over Madison’s head, so Hannah had to actually carry her around!

Were you hit by the storm? How much snow did you get? Do you still have power? Leave it in the comments!

Wish list: Kate Spade #hashtags

#hashtag

Left to right: gia pouch, terry tote, iPad sleeve.

If you know me, you know that I’m obsessed with Twitter. I’ve been using it since I was in high school, and there’s scarcely been a day in between when I haven’t put out at least one tweet.

I was window-shopping the Kate Spade website earlier and saw these ADORABLE #hashtag pouches and bags. I think they are the cutest things! Kate Spade has always had a thing for working cute messages into her designs, but these are especially great. I love the cheeky messages and color blocking! My favorite one is the “Tequila is not my friend” pouch…very wise words!

Which one is your favorite?!

Live Colorfully

I’ve been busy with finals and writing for SoxProspects and The Prep Crew, but I’m home for summer now and I’m bringing Quote of the Day back with a vengeance!

And what better way than to start with this quote from designer Kate Spade. I totally agree with her “live colorfully” philosophy. It’s a way to keep life interesting. Living colorfully adds spunk, spontaneity, and imagination into life. Decorating and dressing colorfully just make you feel good. In short, they’re just great guidelines to live by.

How do you live colorfully?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy hearts day to all!  This Valentines Day, whether you have a valentine or not, I hope you all remember to look for and recognize the love in your life.  It’s a great day to not only celebrate that special someone, but also your family, friends, and anyone else that means something to you.  Spread the love!

Also, I wanted to share this SUPER cute Valentine’s card that was featured on the KateSpade.com blog:

So perfect, right?!

Also, I figured I’d share my favorite love song…it was a hit when I was a kid, and I think its simple message is so cute!  “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None the Ritcher.

How are you spreading the love this V-Day? Share in the comments!

xoxo, Karoline
