Throwback Thursday: Bring back the snow!

IMG_8583Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Throwback Thursday!

Hop in the time machine with me, and let’s blast back in time to January 17, 2013 when Winter Storm Iago coated Birmingham with a lot of snow–in Southern terms…”a lot of snow” really means “we got about an inch, and it is all melted by the next day.” *wink*

As I reminisce about this blog, the best part and most fun of that Southern blizzard was playing with the dogs in the snow–I tried to convince my mom to come out and help me build a snowman; however, she insisted on staying inside the covered porch. I cannot say that I blame her…we do not have the proper attire for playing in snow. Anyway, that day was absolutely marvelous…I wish we would get snow more often–don’t tell my dad I said that because he has a strong dislike for snow *wink*

Now, without further ado, I reveal never before seen photos from the fun time the pups and I had during our Alabama Snow-tacular last year. Enjoy!

It is also not very wise for making snow angles in the street...but I live in the cul de sac...so, it's okay? Right?! *wink*
One should never make snow angels in the street…but I live in the cul-de-sac, and I’m a professional…so, it’s okay? Right?! *wink*
