Hurricane Days

Hurricane Days are the Southern version of Snow Days

When I was younger, they were the best things ever! 
We got off of school,
We hung out with our friends,
We had Hurricane Parties,
and Mrs. B always made homemade funnel cake!

While I was in college I never really worried about hurricanes. None came close to my middle of the state location. 
Now I'm back in South Florida, right in time for hurricane season.
Although a lot of preparations were made for Isaac,  he really didn't do much here.
However, Kyle and I were given a chance to just spend some time together along with the perfect excuse to be lazy.

On Saturday night we went out to dinner and saw The Amazing Spider Man! It was really nice to go on a date night because we haven't had the chance since we moved.
On Sunday, we braved the strong winds and rainy weather to go to church. However, when we got there no cars were in the parking lot. It had gotten canceled and we didn't know it! Whoops!
We did go out later to lunch with the family.

I've been working on watching all the episodes of Once Upon a Time and took the opportunity to finish season 1! I can't wait for the next season to start!

I then started Grimm! Such a different twist on the fairy tale concept, but I love it!

It stormed all Sunday and Monday!
I couldn't help but laugh Monday morning when I looked out my window. One of the trees in the back had fallen down from the wind. The lawn guy was fighting against the wind trying to pull it back into position. He finally got it only for it to fall down later that day again!

Kyle didn't have to go into work Monday and I ended up soaked when the rain suddenly started again while I was bringing in groceries!
I decided the world was telling me it was a pj day, so we laid around doing nothing the rest of the day!

  4. Stopping by from Just Because Fridays! I love watching both Once Upon a Time and Grimm. Season 2 of Grimm started already and I must say it is doing pretty well.

    I used to also be a fan of Hurricane Days....now I have to work if there is one. No fun at all, haha

    1. My mom was the one who suggested Grimm and she said the same thing! I like it so far, but after Once I wasnt't expecting it to be so creepy!

  7. How I miss hurricane days! I grew up in Southwest Florida and they were the best. I do remember always having to work when I was in High School, since I worked at a grocery store, so I was always late to the Hurricane Parties. Booo!
