Whenever we were considering what activities to include in our bucket list during the oppressively hot month of  August, Kyra and I had one rule.

1. It has to be something that we can/will feasibly do

Naturally, the idea of seeing snow at the ever-tropical Cabana was not something that fit into that category, nor was  it something we could control.

But as I said last week, just because something isn’t listed, doesn’t mean it’s not bucket-worthy.

While, those of you experiencing Polar Vortex Janus (Ohhh my gassssh) are likely incredulous, if not offended, by the fact that we consider this thin layer of white stuff “snow,” please remember that we feel the same way when you talk about “the heat.”

With that said, please enjoy these delightful pictures of Cabana and Iza, while we bask in the last few hours of our snow days (aka catch up on homework yolo).

**And for any former-athlete-readers, please feel free to let me know when in my life it will no longer be socially acceptable to wear my purple sweats, and how do you suggest I cope with this. Thx. **

Though building a fire wasn’t on our formally written bucket list, we went ahead and made the executive decision to add it to our list of to-dos.

Having lived in Cabana for nearly three years now, we formed a loving bond with our fire place. It adds a significant level of charm to the living room, and the mantle above it serves as a great holding place for some of our most prized possessions, such as our flamingo beanie babies, cutest-couple trophies, an authentic Mexican tequila vase and framed photos in which everyone is touching and/or looking frighteningly ugly.

However, in those three years we have yet to ever USE the Cabana fire place.

But last night’s freeze lit a fire under us, and we decided today was the day to get those duralogs a burnin’.

I have to say it was a pretty simple feat. Cabana still stands and no one has died from methane poisoning .  But I have to give most of the credit to Papa Brett for starting the fire, dealing with the gas, opening the chimney, giving us the wood, being a cool dad and wearing my favorite camel hair jacket of his ( on Hump Day! How appropriate).

So, yeah, basically we did nothing other than enjoy the fire with our adorable pup Iza…

Nevertheless, tonight’s inaugural fire was the perfect way to celebrate the first freeze and the mere 41 days, 1 hour and 51 minutes until Christmas.

And now introducing… my first ever GIF! Written in my first ever HTML! Woot!
