AJ Wears :: A furry hood

IMAGINE MY SURPRISE when I woke up and it started snowing today. I thought we'd see nothing more than some nasty slush and ice, but the winds from Canada blew in some flurries and I could not be more thrilled. I had to stop myself from taking prancing snow pictures outside during the small blizzard. I did however, learn my lesson from yesterday. Pants.

 I took this opportunity to wear my obnoxiously day-glo sweater because, why not? Also, it's so ridiculously thick and warm that I can't wear it indoors at all. I keep thinking it achieves that perfect slouchy cozy look (a la Victoria's Secret catalog model) but alas, it's just a normal sweater despite it's retina-burning hue.

Here's a picture of me smelling my coat. MMMM. Smells like freedom and dreams. Actually, it kind of smells like stale Abercrombie, because I bought it at Park Plaza and everything that comes from there ends up with that cologne smell to it because they spray so much. Even if it didn't come from Abercrombie. True story.

Weekend Snapshots :: Christmas and Beyond

Christmas was eventful, you guys. Not only did we have a white Christmas, we had an all out blizzard which led to a lot of shenanigans.

Amazing animal pajamas (they're called kigurimis) I ordered from China that my sister and I rarely took off. They are THAT. COMFY.

And yes, I'm ridiculous and put my dog in pajamas too. I found them at an after Christmas sale, don't judge me. Watching her prance around the house in a snowflake onesie turned out to be the best $4 that I've ever spent. It was HILARIOUS.

I knew it was going to snow in Little Rock on Christmas, but I had hope it would snow in Longview while we were visiting my parents. Luckily for me, we had a good hour or two of beautiful snow in Texas on Christmas! It was truly magical, and thankfully all melted the next day so we could still make the Target after Christmas sale.

Sadly, our house in Little Rock was not so lucky. We spent the rest of the week checking our thermostat waiting for it to come online. The house was out of power until Saturday - and then AGAIN on Sunday, so we've been house hopping for the past week waiting for heat and lights (and most importantly, internet).

Spent our last night of Christmas break at the casinos in Shreveport - I might not have won any money but I found a few slot machines that were a total blast!

My BFF from growing up, Chesley, standing in front of a million dollar wall at the Horseshoe Casino. Probably the only million I'll ever see in my lifetime!

How was your holiday, lovelies? I'm excited to get my party on tonight for New Years and I have my fingers crossed that it'll be one with lots of light and heat (power, hurry up!). I hope you all have a fabulous last night of 2012 and I'll see you in 2013 with lots more sequins and sass.
