SOL Day 22

I woke up to 13.0 inches of wet and heavy snow this morning. Our delayed opening quickly turned into another snow day because the side roads were still snow-covered. But today turned out to be the best kind of snow day- the kind where school gets canceled but the roads are clear by early afternoon.

Once the roads were clear and the sun was out, I met up with my mom and sister. We drove to Bridgewater to check out the Vineyard Vines Whalehouse Sale! It turned out to be a very worthwhile trip.

The company rented and empty storefront for ten days and set out boxes and boxes of merchandise. We got there about 2 hours after it opened and it was a mess, but if you were patient you could find some great items. If you bought ten items you got an additional 20% off the already low prices, so we combined our finds and made out like bandits. We had to wait about 40 minutes to check out, but you could continue shipping as the line wound around the store, so it wasn’t a big deal. I ended up leaving with a new shep shirt, a long sleeve tee, a polo shirt for Chris, and a new raincoat. My sister and I actually bought matching raincoats because they were so cute!

After shopping, we headed across the street to the Shake Shack at the Bridgewater Mall. I was very excited to learn they had a Concrete dessert with salted honey pie mixed in. I tried salted honey pie for the first time at Christmas and it’s my new favorite kind of pie. Needless to say, my Concrete was delicious!

All in all, it was a very productive snow day.
