Nemo Found Us

February 10, 2013

We experienced our first blizzard ever up here in Boston! It snowed at least two feet, guys. I’ve never seen anything like it. But luckily, we got to watch it from the comfort of our warm apartment.

Most of Friday and Saturday were spent like this – looking out the window. Cooper’s favorite part was watching for the snow plows and saying, “beep beep beep,” every time they backed up.


Here’s the view from our apartment as the day went on. It started snowing Friday morning, and got pretty crazy by the afternoon. Friday night, Jordan and I thought it would be sweet to take all the snow plower guys hot chocolate. They worked HARD. Nonstop. So we made a few jugs, put on our snow gear, and braved the crazy snow and winds… Only to be rejected by the snow plowers. That’s right, no one wanted our hot chocolate. HAHA! I guess we ARE in Boston… But I’m glad we did it, because Jordan and I got to walk around in the craziness a bit. At one point, I had to turn around and walk backwards because the wind/snow was so crazy… I stopped walking because I was laughing so hard, and then I started sliding on the ice because the wind was blowing me so hard! Unreal.


It stopped snowing around 1 Saturday, and I went for a stroll with Ashley, and Rush & Krista. It was amazing. SO beautiful and peaceful and I couldn’t wrap my mind around how much snow there was. And oh my goodness I can’t even explain how much more I love my snow boots after this weekend. No cold toes for me!


We walked across the river to Harvard Square and walked around Undergrad’s campus a bit… Peeps were straight up cross-country skiing down the streets.


And sledding down the stairs?? So funny!!



Guys. Look closely. There are cars lining this street on both sides. Ashley pointed it out to us – otherwise, I don’t think I would have ever noticed them.


When Coop woke up from his nap, we took him outside to check out this snow business.


I tried to convince him how fun it all was, but I’m pretty sure he’d rather sit and watch the snow plows, bobcats, and backhoes do their work. Such a boy. It probably didn’t help that the poor kid couldn’t hardly move… he fell down a few times and he most definitely couldn’t get back up on his own. Christmas Story, anyone??



Jordan thought it would be funny to push me down in the snow. Okay, it was funny. Coop most definitely thought it was hilarious. Love my boys :)


Where We’ll Be This Summer

February 6, 2013

At Harvard Business School, every RC (required curriculum, aka first year) student does an internship for the summer. It can literally be anywhere. So yes, in the back of my mind I was thinking that worse case scenario, we’d be in some other big city, no where close to home, and the living situation would probably not be great, so Coop and I would be doing life basically separate from Jordan all summer. I’m not a pessimist. I just knew that was a possibility, and I wanted to be realistic.

Well, talk about a happy day when Jordan accepted his internship in MIDLAND, TEXAS! Woooohooooo! Not only will we be in the same state as all of our families, and all the weddings we’ll be attending this summer, but we will be living with some dear friends of ours! Jordan is really excited about his internship with Piedra Resources, and I’m really excited about all the things. All of them.

With that said, I’m opening up shop with good ol Brittany Strebeck Photography in Midland and Lubbock this summer. Weddings, engagements, seniors, families, etc. I’d be delighted to take pictures on some Texas soil again.

E-mail me at for any questions or inquiries. See ya soon, Tejas!

And because no post is complete without a picture, here is one of Coop and I back in Lubbock, enjoying some froyo. What a little goofball he is.
