snow dayyyy!

so yesterday i had a logo critique in Portfolio class. my logo is for a fictitious vintage apparel and record store i made back 1.5-2 years ago in illustrator class [when i originally did the 3 owl illustrations, one of which i made mention of being taken & used by someone else via flickr]. anyway, this was the little owl friend i did for the original logo. i wont bother posting the "original" one because its AWFUL! this one isn't complete yet. i'm going to abstract the apostrophe/leaf and tweak the serifs a bit more, but its a fairly good indication fo where its headed. i am pleased with it. [in the below example, his feathers on the left appear smaller.. AI was being dumb but they're actually the same size].

anyway, after the critique i went and ran a few errands and then headed up to mike's house in west nashville to keep him company and he did the tiresome job of painting... still. i got there and got really really sleepy so after we ran to Lowe's and ate at Blue Coast i settled onto the couch for a little 1.5 hour nap. i'm not sure why i was so beat. he painted and sang aloud while i slept with pillows over my face haha. a silly little pictuer of him that he didnt know i took:

we headed back to franklin around 6:30pm or so but made a few stops in west end. we got home and i saw all the tweets about schools closing today because of the anticipated snow storm. this is the "worst since 2003" so they say. luckily it didnt take TOO long for O'more to call off classes for friday [this is only the 2nd time it's happened in the past 8 years or so]. woohoo no art history 2! that meant i got to sleeeeeeeep in! the plan was to wake up early and head back up to nashville to get things and then go buy a couch! thats right. a beautiful red couch! [we've since decided we're going to probably purchase the couch AND loveseat! eep!]. so excited about this. silly, i know! but i love the thought of us making large purchases such as a living room set together. :D end the gushing. this is what we've agreed on:

anyway, we slept and then we were woken by mike's dad calling at like 10:30 to tell us not to leave the house. to stay put and all that jazz because in just 2 minutes, it came a crazyyy snow storm in columbia or wherever. so after that i called my mom who is 45 minutes west of there and she said they already had an inch or so and that it was coming down with a vengeance. i desperately needed to pay the water bill today [as its due tomorrow, and they're closed] so we decided to brave it to drive less than half a mile down the street to pay it. then we realized we needed groceries. it was coming down hard but we trekked to kroger. it was PACKED! we were in there for far too long becasue we came out and everything in sight was solid white. it was exactly one mile back to the house basically and we slid SO many times. i was literally freaking out. i was on the phone with my mom while he drove and i recorded the entire thing on our flip cam [videos soon!] we almost slid into an oncoming van, a stop sign, a ditch, etc. we FINALLY made it home and decided this is where we'll stay until it passes. [which apparently wont be any time soon].

Angie [the other bartender at work] called me at 11:30 this morning and said "im just calling to tell you what you probably already know... dont you even dare think about trying to come to work tonight". my bar is a 35 minute drive south and there was no way i could make it. plus my tiny little convertible is rear-wheel drive. aint happening! so i probably wont work tomorrow night either. a;djksf;alfs jd :( sad day. i could use the casholllaaaaaa.

while in the car at kroger i realized i was wearing my pants inside out... yep... i had gone into city hall to pay our water bill....WITH MY PANTS ON INSIDE OUT! and yes... it was noticable. afsd;jasdf;ljasd. hahahahaha leave it to me. whatever.

we got home and cooked spicy black bean burgers and we took georgia outside. SHE LOVES THE SNOW. loves loves loves. it was a lazy day of kathy griffin stand-up comedy, the beginnings of clueless, pizza, snow, snow, snow, silly videos, hot showers and hot jacuzzi baths, sitting for a pow wow with bryan in Aj's floor, and all that jazz. its been fun but it feels so surreal. i can't wait to wake up and see how much snow we have tomorrow! we took a ton of Fuji instax polaroids. they come out blurry in the photos below because my iphone is crappy but whatever, i'll scan all of them in soon becasue they're super cute!

i hope we're able to get out and about tomorrow. i'd like to be able to work, but at the very least i'd like for us to be able to go buy our daggum furniture!

hows everyone else's weekend going?! any fun snow for you guys?! if you're around franklin, come downtown and play in it with us! we have a big yard and more than enough snow to go around! snowball warzzzzzzzz!

  1. Haha, I've worn my clothes inside out before, too. One time I wore my hat inside out and I didn't realize it until I got home. I was SO mad!

    It actually snowed about 4-5 inches last night, and it's all ice now. It doesn't snow much here in Mooresville.

    Hope you have a wonderful day, Kaelah! :)

  2. you & mike are awesome together, i'm really happy for you two.

    we aren't getting any snow here in florida but uh... it was in the lower 70s today! i had to wear jeans under my sundress! you just don't understand the horror... ;) but seriously, glad you guys didn't crash and that georgia likes snow [what a cutie] :)
