Friday Favorites: Snow Days and Family Time

Happy Friday, friends! Hope everyone had a wonderful week. I’ve been preparing for a busy weekend and can’t wait to share all of our Chicago fun.

/ / One
Christopher’s family (my in-laws and brother-in-law and his girlfriend) is coming into town on Saturday morning for an early Thanksgiving with us. Chris doesn’t get Thanksgiving off this year, so it will be great to see family and spend a few days with them during the holiday season.

Our first snow of the season is predicted for tonight, and I am so excited! I know I will be over it in a few months, but there is something about the first snow that is so exciting. The meteorologists are saying we could get anything from 2-6 inches, so I can’t wait to see this beautiful city covered in snow.

/ / Three
Today is the last day to sign up for Mattie’s and my Blogger Christmas Cheer Exchange! We are going to have so much fun. All the details can be found here.

I am 15 books away from my new goal of reading 100 books this year! It’s crazy that in January, I was hoping I could finish 50 books, and now I might hit 100.
