Yesterday was the best kind of snow day! Well, it started out being an “extreme cold day” and overnight we got a bit of snow.
Here’s why it was the best: it was a Wednesday – smack dab in the middle of the week at the epicenter of two weekends AND because we found out at 2:45! That is so rare that that happens! So, this meant I could have an afternoon caffeinated coffee and I stayed up later than normal – or at least tried to.
I woke up at pretty much the same time Wednesday morning and leisurely read blogs, had my quiet time, and drank coffee.
My husband still had to go to work so before he left I put in a load of laundry so that maybe he would think I had a productive day planned – haha!
When the sun finally came up, this is what the view out my front door looked like.
One son woke up and I offered up some French toast.
I did my nails with OPI Funny Bunny.
I worked very hard to clear off my DVR. The Bachelor still had not been watched.
I finally managed to get out of the house around 2:00. I had to get dog food from Costco – and a couple of other things.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Costco parking lot so empty and I practically had the store to myself.
I really want to try one of these taco kits next trip.
Mission accomplished at Costco and since it was on the way home, I stopped at Versona. I’ve never seen that mall parking lot so empty either. I have finally figured out the secret to avoiding big crowds. Go shopping when there is an extreme cold advisory.
These are very similar to my Amazon earrings and only cost $8.
I thought these looked like shamrocks or flowers or both!
David Yurman look a likes.
I predict that super tiny earrings are going to be a thing. I also thought the ones on the right could be a Kendra Scott dupe.
Aren’t these cute for Valentine’s Day?
Did I buy anything from the above photos? No, but I may go back. Did I buy anything else? You will have to wait and see!
I came home and started watching season two of Mrs. Maisel on Kellyann’s recommendation. It’s really good! Then, it was time to make dinner because apparently these people still want to eat on snow days. And, during my Mrs. Maisel session I got a text that we would have another snow day! So, I’m off again today.
I will leave you with this graphic which I think is true! We will be warming up today and Saturday will hit 50 and Sunday will get up to 60! Crazy!
I know not everyone gets to enjoy a snow day as an adult and for that I’m truly sorry. It is a wonderful thing to get a “free pass” on a weekday as an adult. I don’t take them for granted! I will have to pay the piper in March when we lose a couple of scheduled days off.
What about you? Snow days good or bad? How’s your weather?
