I’ve had a pretty exciting day. I woke up to a beautiful white bed of snow. I love the snow and the great part of living in Charlotte is that it snows at least once a year. I was so excited to take Santino out this morning because it was his first time ever seeing the snow and Grumples is obsessed with it.
It’s hard to believe it was 60 degrees seven days ago and it’s supposed to be 65 degrees next week. It’s going to continue to snow and rain until tomorrow afternoon. Growing up in Iowa, this would be nothing, but the city of Charlotte doesn’t have the plows or the preparations because it usually happens once a year. It’s smart to stay indoors or stay close to your house. Being from Iowa, I’m used to driving these roads.
My friends and I went up the road for breakfast at Toast of Dilworth. It was the only place open and we were the only ones in there.
I thought their sign was adorable. I love a restaurant with a sense of humor.
And why not a peach bellini?
I went with two over medium eggs, bacon, wheat toast and fresh fruit. Toast of Dilworth is delicious. Their staff is always really friendly and we had fun chatting with them.
I decided to drive uptown so I could snag some photos of the city covered in snow.
No booooots! ahhhh…
On our way back, we picked up the dogs and took them to the field to play in the snow.
This was the best part of my day. Grumples turns into a little puppy again. Tino and Chipper (our friends’ dog) had a blast playing in their first snowfall.
We couldn’t get them to leave. As soon as we grabbed the leashes, they took off and it turned into a game of tag. They loved every minute of it.
We drove around looking for a coffee shop while the dogs were all sound asleep in the truck.
Until one heard me open up a treat bag…
The only place open for coffee was the gas station. All the Starbucks and local coffee shops were closed.
Tonight, we are doing Friday Margaritas!
