Happy Monday friends! Did you have the snowzilla storm hit you? If so, I hope you survived, stayed warm, and kept your power. We made it through just fine and have been getting our exercise with shoveling!
Schools have already canceled in the area through Tuesday, so that tells you just how much we got!
My snowy weekend highlights included:
~Grabbing breakfast with my friend Friday morning at La Madeleine before the snow
~Testing driving the Nissan Rogue (again), and potentially working out a deal
~Hunkering down by noon with snow flurries starting around 2pm
~a cozy night in with MG and Cooper snuggles
~MG shoveling off the walkway twice before bed (got about 4-6" before we went to sleep)
~waking up to a bunch of snowy landscape, doors packed with snow, snow-covered cars and blustery wind
~shoveling, and attempt #1 to get Cooper to go to the bathroom outside (fail)
~a day spent in PJ's (minus when we put on snow gear), getting a puzzle started, and getting caught up on some tv
~mid afternoon shovel session--MG was the good guy he is and helped the neighbors shovel out their places.
~a walk around the neighborhood (of course, during the height of the windy/snowy time); walked into the middle of the normally busy road by our house...but we were able to run around and play in it without fear of getting run over
~made my mediterranean pasta bake for a hearty and absolutely delicious dinner (with leftovers!)
~finally watched The Intern, while enjoying a bowl of moose tracks ice cream (yum!!)--really enjoyed the feel-good nature of the movie. And the ice cream :)
~got Cooper to go to the bathroom outside after 3 separate attempts (his face: "why are you doing this to me????")
~night time shovel session: MG taking a rest in his "snow chair"
~Digging out both of our cars...mine had significantly more snow drift than MG's car
Got our workouts in with all of the shoveling
~much-deserved morning coffee
~shoveled off the last layer of snow from the deck...which was over the bench level of our deck (plus 5 more inches that were shoveled Friday night)
~MG was helping neighbors shovel out for about 4 hours and I was out for 2...omg were we sore!
~veggie-packed black bean soup in the crock pot for another yummy dinner
~lots of time for Kindle reading, puzzle-doing, and closet clean outs
~cozy couch time
As you can tell, our weekend involved a lot of snow lol. Luckily everyone was safe and we made it through which was the important part. Getting some extra time with MG and Coop was icicles on our snow-cake (get it? icicles instead of icing? Oh man...maybe I've been stuck inside too long! lol)
Linking up with Biana and Meghan today for Weekending
