This winter has been brutal! Snow and cold have been downright awful. I’m typically not one to complain since we do live in Chicago but I don’t remember ever having a school year when we had 3 and possibly 4 days of canceled school! I’m thankful that Sara’s pre school continues to remain open because she is way happier at school with her friends!
The Hubs and I have had so much time off together between the canceled days and winter break. We’ve seen more movies in the last 2 months than we have seen in 2 years!
Speaking of movies, we rented Captain Phillips on Saturday night and LOVED it! A win for the Blue Ray and Tom Hanks was OUTSTANDING! I highly recommend it! Last night we rented Prisoners and I think our plans are to see a movie today! Our lives are exciting but what else are you supposed to do when there are blizzard like conditions and windchills of -40?
Thankfully, tonight The Following is on! Is anyone else as obsessed with this incredibly creepy, scary and addicting show?
I’m planning to make a batch of my chickpea and butternut squash soup today since I can’t seem to consume enough of hot liquids! My bones are cold all the time except when I am exercising! I’m also planning to run and hit up a barre class today. I guess the advantage to not working is all this extra time to workout! After a 6 1/2 mile run yesterday, RunKeeper told me that I had broken a new record for miles run in one month! Seems I have really been running a bunch these days and it is all pain free!
For now I will dream about hot summer days with a cold drink in my hand!
Are you back in a cold blast again?
Before, I forget the winner of the GoMacro Bars is #123 D. Lindgren! Congrats! Be on the lookout for an email from me!
