These past few snow days have been so nice. There is nothing like getting a surprise day off. I don't get bored very easily, so I was very content to just relax and watch movies and read and hang out at home.
But today was our THIRD snow day and I will admit a little bit of cabin fever was beginning to set in.
We did have a fun night last night playing cards with our neighbors. That is pretty much a snow day tradition for us. And when I went to bed, I already knew that today I would definitely not be staying in the whole day! I knew the roads would be clear enough to get out a little bit in the middle of the day when it was warm.
This snow day started like any good snow day... sleeping in!! This is what time I woke up this morning.
Do you know that that is 3 1/2 hours later than I usually get to sleep?? I wish I could sleep this late every day. It makes me feel so much better!
After waking up with the sun actually shining outside, I made myself a relaxing cup of coffee with my favorite creamer...
and settled in to watch The Today Show. I love Hoda and Kathie Lee.
I did a little cleaning and organizing around the house this morning. But really, my house is pretty clean. It's amazing how clean it stays when there is only Steve and me here. :) And I did some online shopping with my gift cards!
I wanted to write my Compassion child a letter and send her some Valentine stickers. She is so precious and I try to remember to pray for her every day.
Ashley and I met at Big Daddy's Burgers for lunch. It was so funny to think that normal people get to eat out at fun places like that every day. Meanwhile, I am choking down a sandwich in about 15 minutes in a loud, steamy cafeteria. Eating lunch out on a weekday is a luxury for me!
This is the fountain that was right outside the restaurant! Can you believe all that ice??
This afternoon I got to run errands and do some shopping. I went to the grocery store and got the things I needed to make Katie Lee Joel's Mediterranean Pasta.
Tonight I am off to choir practice! I am joining the choir again. I haven't sung in the choir in a really long time, so I am looking forward to it!
It has been a fun three snow days!
Before I go, I just wanted to tell you how excited I am for Lindy. She is a fashion major at East Carolina University and she got chosen to be a style intern with Leslie from A Blonde Ambition!! She is thrilled and I know she is going to have a great time learning from Leslie! Yay Lindy!! :)
