baby things, sweet treats + snow


We're preparing for a storm here in New England. Yesterday, they made the call to close the university where I work for at least days, so I'm enjoying a quiet day at home. The snow started to fall around 9am and they're predicting 12-24 inches in our area once it is done.

The past week has been filled with little things to be happy about!


1- Baby gifts
Two gifts arrived this week for our sweet baby G. I love these little booties with wings on the heel! And another friend sent me a fleece outfit (not pictured). A year from now, it will be perfect for the little one.

2- Spontaneous froyo dates
We have been trying to do some unplanned and fun dates. A new frozen yogurt place opened up about 15 minutes away, so we hopped in the car at 9pm last Friday and went to check it out! Those are the kinds of things we know will be harder once we have a little one in tow.

3- Scenic Boston
We went to a Super Bowl party and walking from our car was like a scene from a movie with snow quietly falling and the picturesque street, so I had to take a quick photo!

4- A healthy baby
We had an ultrasound on Wednesday and loved seeing the little one's hands open and close. I started to feel movement in the last week and it's been so cool!

5- Hot chocolate
The week wouldn't be complete without a few cups of homemade hot cocoa. I use 1 cup of milk, 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tsp pure sugar cane.

I'm linking up with Lindsay of Hello Hue for It's the Little Things!
