Today my friend, Bethany, and I had a "Camille & Bethany's day of fun." (Not unlike "Janice & Joey's day of fun") She and I will have these every so often and I always enjoy them. Today's day o' fun included seeing 27 Dresses, Barnes & Noble, and trying not to slide around too much as we navigated the snowy streets of Erie. How much snow did we get today? A foot? Maybe not.. but it was a lot. Anywhoos, successful girly day o' fun. I enjoyed 27 dresses in case you were curious. Except for Judy Greer's character- she was a little much. I enjoy Judy Greer in other films/shows- like when she was on Arrested Development... funny.

Also, I finally took down my Christmas decorations today. You heard that right, folks. January 19th.... And when did we put them up? Before Thanksgiving. Oh well, they definitely got their wear. We almost considered keeping the tree up as a "Winter Tree." Then we realized that we didn't even have to pull the branches all back in place and put it in the box.... Now that we live up north and have a handy-dandy basement, we can just move the tree down there... as is! So, we did. Although the tree clipped a few doorframes, the basement is very Christmasy now. Hooray!

i love girls days! we had a wine & cheese party last night - you would have loved it! i also spent the day slipping and sliding on the snowy streets of c springs. :) and we didn't have time to put our tree up either, but we had our small group coming over, so kevin and i moved the tree into the guest bedroom for 2 weeks, along with all the other decorations. i just put those up on thursday ...

Try putting an old sheet around your tree so it will not get dusty between now and next year.

Dear Dr./Mrs. Jennings,
In case your taste of a real lake-effect snow event was not adequate, I invite you and Powers out to our place (just a wee bit south of town) to experience all that the snowbelt has to offer in a time like this. I can't believe I'm saying this, but we really dodged a bullet this weekend.

We finally put the very last of Christmas up in storage today. We have had everything boxed up and stacked in the livingroom....so don't feel bad. I remember my old boyfriend's family taking their Christmas tree down just before Easter and it was a REAL tree...haha...it was a skeleton wih ornaments.

I miss lake effect snow....only when it just snows and is pretty,crisp, clean and white....not the next day when it starts to melt, gets slushy and muddy from everyone driving in it and then it gets all over your boots and in your car and nasty, slushy, crap!!! Ok, I only miss it on MY TERMS.
