Well, it was bound to happen eventually – we had our first snowfall of the season yesterday! I’m never exactly excited at the sight of snow, but I have to admit that it’s pretty and adds to the holiday ambiance. The best part about snow? An excuse to stay in and be cozy all day long! While my 3 favorite ways to spend a snow day are far from exciting or original, they give me a chance to relax and reboot.
You can bet that a snow day around here is an automatic sweats and pajamas kind of day. If I’m not going anywhere (even outside), why bother wasting a nice outfit?! That doesn’t mean that I don’t strut around in my cutest pajamas, though. The Baby It’s Cold Outside sweatshirt from Betsy Boo’s Boutique (c/o) is ridiculously perfect for this time of year. It’s lightweight but still cozy enough to keep me warm around the house. Plus, I easily can swap out my plaid pajama pants for a pair of jeans if I need to go outside with Finn or run a few errands.
Also, just like I won’t waste an outfit on a snow day, I also don’t bother with makeup and hair! A little under eye and spot concealing is all the effort I put in for days like this. I’m surprised that I even kept my hair down this day – a messy bun is my ‘do of choice these days.

Besides puppy snuggles, hot drinks are plentiful and constant throughout a snow day. I’m pretty much always cold, so a hot drink is my solution to warm up! I usually start the day with coffee or cappuccino, and it just goes from there. Hot apple cider, more coffee, hot chocolate, even more coffee … My favorite Gilmore Girls mug that I bought several years ago at Warner Bros. Studio pretty much sums up my relationship with coffee and all hot drinks.
And, of course, no cozy snow day-in would be complete without some reading material. Thanks to my month-long binge of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (thanks, Kristen for getting me hooked!), I admittedly have been off my reading game. But, I finally picked up my Kindle the other night and I’m catching up on a couple months’ worth of magazines. How pretty are all the holiday-themed covers? When I’m finished reading, I love to put my favorite magazines on display on the coffee table. Instant Christmas decor!
Like I mentioned earlier, snow and winter are far down on the list of two of my favorite things. But, if more snow days means that I can indulge in my 3 favorite ways to spend a snow day, then bring ’em on!
