Snow! Snow! Snow!

I can hear the sounds of Bing crosby and Danny Kay singing the song "Snow!" in Irving Berlin's White Christmas (which, by the way, is the best Christmas movie ever).

I love fresh snow. The innocence...serenity...gentleness.
I hate snow after about oh 2 days. It's dirty and messy and gets in my way.

I can usually be found doing a dance welcoming the glorious white flakes.
Not this time.
We are scheduled to have 6-12 inches...which is HUGE for Virginia. Especially since we had a good snow last year and usually we don't get snow every year!
However, I have an appointment to go Bridesmaid dress shopping up in Alexandria - about 2 hour drive on a normal day (unless you go at the wrong time and you hit DC traffic. then you just start drinking).

So tonight I will be found in my house doing the "NO Snow" dance! I am not quite sure how it goes, but when I figure it out I am sure I will have it mastered.

I don't consider myself Bridezilla, but all I haVe to say to Mother Nature is....

Melissa Fave, you are an IRONMAN

Two weeks ago, I finished my first Ironman - Ironman Arizona.
It was a lot to take it and the day went by SO fast. 13 hours and 43 minutes never felt so short.
I am happy with the day overall.
I am amazed and thankful for the support I received from near and far.
I promise I will do a race report. Probably over christmas vacation...sorry for the delay, but I am VERY busy at work - which is a good thing!
