Snow Day

Freakin' Finally. 
I figured I mine-as-well treat Saturday like a snow day and do nothing (or almost nothing).
 I started the day with some Maxwell time and coffee. Standard. 

Then Steven and I decided to blow up the air mattress and put it in the middle of the living room and make it an "island". Yes, an island. An island that we could not get off. Pretty awesome, I know. 
But then we couldn't find the air mattress pump (who misplaces an air mattress pump anyway?).
Plan B: Take all the blankets off my bed and make an island out of that. Success.

We* he went to redbox and got a few movies and we watched them ALL DAY LONG. 
*it wasn't we because I opened the front door and felt the cold air hit me and said it was all him. ;)

For lunch I made bean quesadillas, which were delish. 

Then after ample movie watching I started to go a little stir crazy, so Steven and I went to the library just to get out of the house for a little...
Yes, that is my free tote bag I got for signing up for the library. 
Pretty awesome. ;) 

For dinner I made the easiest recipe ever: chicken and dumplings in the crock pot. I was pleased by how 
seriously yummy it turned out
 Mmmm...and perfect for a cold and snowy day!

We then ate too much of this cinnamon roll cake I made on Friday night. It is sinful.
Every time I walked by I took another bite.  I ended up bringing the leftovers to Fossil on Sunday because I needed to get rid of it.

I seriously had one of the best weekends ever.  Sometimes doing nothing is better than doing something over the top.  It was just what I needed :)


  1. what is going on with the world? We've had like no snow around here which is strange, to say the least.

  2. We did get our first snow (well we had a day of snow in December, but one day doesn't really count) this weekend too! It's nice :)
