This snow is definitely the kind of snow everyone wants. Perfect to build a snowman and snowballs, but you can still drive on it!
My drive to work this morning.

This isn't a DIY post because there are a ton of those on Pinterest on these cute boxes, I just wanted to share with y'all how I asked them! I will share on what's inside of them though :)
What I put in the boxes:
I made three different little things to include in the boxes.
1.) A list of all the bridesmaids and their numbers. All of my girls have met at one point or another but not all of them have each other's numbers. So I definitely wanted to include that for them to have.
2.) The "asking them" sheet.
3.) A little design that I included at the top of their sheets, with our wedding date!
Other goodies in the boxes:
-Pencils (and they matched our colors!)
-A note pad
-Note cards or a metal letter with burlap
I wrapped them in white tulle

Tennessee was under a state of emergency after Tuesday, I think. Multiple crashes were happening EVERYWHERE. A tragic story of a mother and her son trying to help someone on the side of the interstate when a semi struck them and killed both, I think the total is up to 22 deaths due to weather related wrecks, and then the state of emergency was raised to a level two for the northern counties that were hit so hard (the above pictures). Thousands are still without power. They have opened churches and some schools for shelters because people can't stay in their homes without power and with it still being in the teens.
I have been watching the news non-stop and reading people's updates on facebook and it's just gut-wrenching.
So today I am thankful.

Love our light fixture in the dining area
The windows seriously make me so happy. The amount of natural light that pours in is incredible.
Also, the weather this past weekend was such a blessing! It felt great outside and we kept the windows opened all day. Perfect moving weather if you ask me!
We ended up going back to the furniture store and bought a 6ft tall bookcase with about 5 shelves. It is by the fireplace. It's the perfect size to fill up that awkward space by the fireplace and the perfect place to put out router, modem, and of course, Matthew's Xbox ;)
My dad is going to put in a shelf for us over the sink to put the microwave on so that it doesn't take up counter space. He measured this past weekend and is going to try and match the shelf to the rest of our cabinets!
The kitchen and bathroom
Also, our comforter set same in the mail and we LOVE it!If you can't tell it's navy and white.
When we did our walk through of our actual apartment a couple of weeks ago we had a couple things that we were concerned about, and Matthew emailed the leasing manager and asked if we could have them fixed. When we got the keys and walked in everything was fixed!! We were so excited and relieved. Everything looks great and I am dying to get to decorating haha! We probably won't do any decorating until I move in or closer time to me moving in.
Also, if you are following me on Instagram then you already saw, but I asked two of my bridesmaids and my MOH to be in our wedding! I'll share more of that later though. I have three more girls to ask. I'm so excited!!
