Day #2...The Snowstorm That Ate My Car...

I never made it home from work yesterday...picked the boys up at my mom's and stayed there.  Good thing, the snow was coming down so fast and the wind blowing so hard...the visibility was zero.

Woke up this morning to this...

We have gotten about three feet of snow here in Chicago...but I am a trooper...I I brought a change of clothes with me and they happen to be part of the 30 items from the 30 x 30.

#2 of 30


Nothing terribly exciting...just a long cardi, leggings and a favorite necklace or my mom's...but I am stuck at my mom's house with the kids and they are getting a little stir crazy! 
It took me two hours to dig my car out just to move it to a parking garage...I had to move it off the street before the plows come by again.

I am not sure if I am ever going to be able to get home again...all the schools are closed...most of the major highways are closed and people are just walking down the middle of the street to get anywhere...it is the only place where the plows have been.

That sounds AWFUL. Seriously, awful.

On the other hand, you look adorable! Simple, comfy, cute. I love the pop of green and that cardigan is so cozy!

I'm amazed that you still took photos. It sounds like you're all safe and sound, which is good.

How cute are you?!? I love this 30 for 30 challenge! I'm 'meeting' so many awesome style bloggers. Guess what? We live in Kansas and a snow storm ate my car too. Ugh! And... I LOVE your necklace in day one. So cute!

WOW. That is some crazy CRAZY weather you're dealing with over there! Goodness gracious. Well too bad the kids aren't into style blogging, I know I could waste DAYS on these blogs for fun, hehe. Love your yellow + green little color pops!
