Weekend rewind and everything else

I know it's Wednesday, but we've been busy. But we're both home today bc of the snow. We only got a few inches, but they were expecting us to get 10 so everything closed just in case. I'm off on Friday so I'm REALLY hoping to be off again tomorrow but it looks doubtful. Doubtful, very doubtful (name that movie!)

Last Friday i got out of the house for the first time in days. Nothing like a shower and make up to make you feel like a woman again, ha!

We went to a friends house to play games with 3 other couples from church. Sadly no pics :(

We played Catchphrase and Apples to Apples. Catchphrase is one of my all times faves, i don't really ever tire of this game. This was also my first time to play the Apples game. We had a great night just hanging out, having fun, and enjoying conversation. Everyone did give me a hard time about blogging/twittering. At one point during the game, our friend Mike stopped the game and asked if i need to go tweet about it. Funny.

Anyways, we did have a great time and enjoyed being out of the house and seeing friends.

Saturday was an interesting day. It was a day where everything went wrong, we were both annoyed, and nothing seemed to go right. We finally seemed to clear things up and get on the same page before going to bed. But the whole day i think we were both just wanting to get back in bed and start all over.

Sunday was church. Because of all the snow we just had big church. That night we went to a friends house to watch the Superbowl. If i haven't mentioned it yet, i am a huge Packer fan. My mom's family is from around there, and all of us have followed the Pack for years. I do have a cheesehead. So we were all pretty excited that they were in the Superbowl.

I made a new dessert and loved it. It was SO easy and yummy! They're called No Bake Smore Brownies. yum yum!

I got the recipe from here.

Here are a few pics of my family in all their gear for the game:

(Sarah, Grant, Ethan, Mike)

Mom and Dad!

In case you've lost connection with the outside world....we won!

Sidenote: Dad fell last week on the ice and landed on his back. He refused to go to the dr's. Sunday night he felt something pop in his ribs that started spasming. He ended up in the ER on Monday for a couple of fractured ribs. They put him on muscle relaxers (to stop the spasming) and pain killers. I'm glad he's okay but i did give him a lecture about not being so stubborn and going to the dr's when you're in pain!

Yesterday was supposed to be Day 1 of half marathon training. But it looks like this outside.

I haven't ran at all this month. I'm hoping to get a Sunday afternoon run in and then hopefully find some consistency once the snow finally goes away.

Monday night we made TPW's Beef with Snow Peas. We loved it!!!! I would've cut back a little on the soy sauce, but other than that, i will def make this again!

I'm currently reading Laura Bush's Spoken from the Heart. She writes a little differently so sometimes it's hard to follow, but i have learned more about the 9-11 attacks that ever. She has so many good stories of people reaching out and so much more detail that you hear on the news. I'm hoping to finish it today.

We watched TBL last night. Arthur....what were you thinking?!?!?!!?!? He is just plain crazy And i think he needs to buck up and start losing the weight and stop making excuses over and over. Also, i felt really bad for Q's wife after all those promises he made to her last week. I totally think he deserved to go home, but i felt bad for her that he didn't keep up his end of the bargain.

Also, i think i've gotten spoiled with all this time off from work. By the time i got home monday night, fixed dinner, cleaned up the house and stuff, it was time for bed. I was annoyed that i didn't have a few hours to read, ha! It felt so weird to go from reading every day and having time to catch up on things, to be rushed again and trying to get it all done!

We're having chicken tortilla soup for dinner, and i can't wait! Now off to find something to eat for lunch!!

Did you watch the superbowl?? do you have snow??




  1. Cute blog and sweet family. Stopped by from Caroline's blog. Will be back.

  2. How nice to have another unexpected day off! We're just really cold here in Chicago (it's -9 right now), but there hasn't been too much snow since Blizzard 2011 last week.

    Catchphrase is one of my favorite games, too. I'm not usually a competitive person when it comes to playing games, but once Catchphrase comes out, I'm all about winning.

  3. I'm a diehard Steelers fan so of course I watched and of course I was sad!! Those brownies look so good! I'll be making them asap!
