Snow Day-Take 1

Yes. My prayers have been answered. I am happy. All because there is snow on the ground, and i'm at home with a day off!

Let's recap shall we?

Monday night we had blackened tilapia, orzo pasta, and green/red peppers. oh my.

We finished our night by watching Day After Tomorrow. We thought it was fitting, ha!

We found out yesterday that we both wouldn't have to go to work today. Some of us wanted to sleep in. Some of us wanted to rest on our day off. Somewhere among the confusion and excitement of the snow day, Daniel missed that memo. He was out of bed by 6:30, and i grudgingly followed close to 8. I really wanted to sleep in because i was so tired, but i was also really worried about losing electricity, so i kept waking up in the middle of the night to listen to see if our humidifier was still on. Not sure what i would've done if the power had gone out, but still.

The temp's were in the single digits all day with wind chills staying right at 15 below. yes, 15 BELOW zero. I'm so thankful for our heat. I prayed a lot last night.

Here is what we woke up to:

What's weird is that bc it was so windy, the sidewalks were actually pretty clear and in some parts you could see the grass. All 77 counties were considered a state of emergency. Everything on the news is calling this the big Blizzard of 2011. We offically got about 10 inches of snow. Some of the snow drifts are a few feet high.

Here's my lunch: grilled cheese, orange, and 2 cookies.

It's so hard not to eat ourselves out of house and home. We're not used to being home so much so we have to be really careful. I kept reminding myself today that if i wouldn't eat 'something' on a normal day at work, then i didn't need to eat it today either. And i calorie count like a crazy person.  I'm pretty impressed with our self control so far. But again, the night is young ha!!!

Here are a few more pics of the snow:

Daniel ventured out to take a few pics....

The snow is actually up to his knees here.

Can ya'll see how high the snow drifts are??

We pretty much spent the day watching the news and making fun of the people trying to get out and drive. You'd be amazed. Daniel also taught me how to tie a butterfly knot. I'm officially cool now.

( yes i am my wearing old gross sweats.)

Dinner tonight was Zuppa Toscana....totally hit the spot!

And guess what? We're off again tomorrow. I think we'll end up working Thursday but we'll see.

Tonight's agenda? Watch TBL. that's it. I'll prob shower tomorrow. Notice there are no pics of me on here. :)




  1. Nothing quite like a surprise Snow Day! Hunkering down and really slowing down for a day of rest. Good for the mind and the spirit. Stay warm!!!

  2. I can’t believe ALL that snow!!!!!!! It’s 81 here today, come to Florida if you want to escape, haha!!! :)

  3. I love a good snow day! Except on those days, I don't have much self-control and just graze alll day long! Love the snow pictures!
