Snow Days!

I'm one of those weirdos that likes inclement weather. Sure, I'm not going to turn my nose up at a 70-degree, sunshine-filled spring afternoon, but I also love Love LOVE the rain. And snow for that matter.

Dallas went from sunny and gorgeous on Sunday to icy sleet on Tuesday and I've loved every second of it. If my lack of driving talents have done anything for me, it's ensure that if the roads are even a touch icy- it's a work from home day for me. And after watching my neighbor get stuck just trying to back out of their garage, I'm very thankful for that.

In preparation for Snowmaggedon 2011, or whatever the overly dramatic metroplex journalists are calling it, I made sure I had everything I needed here and wouldn't have to leave. And I haven't since Monday night. I have, however:
  1. Cooked chili, sloppy joes, tomato soup, breakfast tacos, herb bread and many a panini. 
  2. Cleaned out two shopping bags full of clothing, shoes, and purses from my closet.
  3. Caught up on my DVR'ed episodes of three shows. 
  4. Showered once. :) 
  5. Found five new blogs. 
  6. Gave myself a mani, pedi, and hydrating face mask treatment. 
  7. Stalked ebay and bought myself a cheaper-than-retail early birthday present from Lululemon (or Lu's Lemon, as Bossdad likes to call it.)
  8. Researched and found a half marathon training program.
  9. Drank more hot chocolate than any human being should in a 48-hour timeframe. 
  10. Found this lovely little mac app to lessen my fireplace envy:
Hope everyone is keeping warm!
