connecticut | just call me a gilmore girl

 finally i am getting around to blogging about my trip to connecticut! i went up there over halloween weekend to visit my sweet friends sarah and jared, and to meet sweet baby adilyn! the trip was so refreshing, even though it didn’t go quiiiite as planned. (see #1 below) we ended up spending half the time at sarah and jared’s house, and half at jared’s brother’s house with his family…which really worked in my favor, because i got to see even more of connecticut!

to sum up the trip, i spent most of my time doing the following things:

1. surviving an actual, legit snowstorm. (it had a name–Alexander–and it knocked out our power. that makes it legit.)

2. drinking mulled cider. (sarah, i want/need that recipe! i’ve been dreaming about it!!)

3. watching the snow fall in total awe. (i’m a florida girl. i’d only seen snow three times before and NEVER quite like that.)

4. cuddling baby adi. (dude. babies are cute. extra cute when you get to hand them back to their momma when the general screaming/pooping/drooling starts.)

5. wearing a ridiculous amount of clothes. (partly functional, as in i-must-wear-three-layers-at-all-times-or-i-will-freeze-to-death, and partly fun, as in yay-for-winter-clothes!)

6. chatting with sarah and jared just like old times. (about anything and everything and nothing in between. perfect.)

7. running through airports like a crazy person. (only to miss my flight. woop woop.)

8. pretending like i was rory gilmore. (you know, because i enrolled at visited yale and all. if you don’t get that reference–or judge me for that reference–we might not be friends.)

9. taking pictures. (duh.)

10. reading the thirteenth tale. (fantastic, btw)

11. getting excited all over again every time i peeked outside and saw ALL.THE.SNOW. (dude. SNOW!!) 

enjoy all the pictures…(of SNOW!)
