And it was swell

Listening to: "I've Got a Crush on You," Frank Sinatra.
Dress: Ann Taylor Loft, $10;
Coat: Club Monaco, thrifted, $5;
Poncho (worn as scarf): Burlington Coat Factory;
Tights, boots: Target.
How I've worn the dress: here, here.
How I've worn the coat: here, here.
How I've worn the poncho: here.

Our first Valentine's date as a married couple was simple, but fun. We aren't super-fancy-schmancy people, and ended up going to Chili's and enjoyed good conversation about the English monarchy, Duke basketball and old Hollywood. Since it was a pretty laidback date I just reverted to a favorite dress. The poncho is actually the shawl I used for my senior prom. Jeremiah was my date to our last high school dance, so it brings back nice memories of eating giant steaks at Stoney River and dancing to "Gasolina"  or whatever other music was happening that year.

The snow came yesterday and as much as I despise cold weather (precipitation in general annoys me), it was really beautiful, especially in the lake area in our neighborhood. Sprinkle couldn't resist sneaking out for some fun:


Jeremiah and I stayed up for some midnight exploring of our blanketed neighborhood, but it lasted 10 minutes because I was in my pajamas.
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday! Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day?
