Depending on where you live you may be experiencing the same thing I am right now… SNOW. It is FREEZING OUT. I actually slept in a full sweat pant and hoody combo last night to try and fight off the cold. While I am just a helper in the raising Sasha game (she lives with the boy) I am quickly learning that a puppy = going outside even when it is the last thing in the world you want to do. I joined outside for an hour after dinner and was freezing my butt off in the 50 layers I had on but it was well worth this little nugget calming down enough to sit and watch Trouble With The Curve with us. Today’s pace run will be done on the dreadmill. We have been hanging out way too much lately but I just can’t help it. DC has turned me soft to winter weather, I just can’t handle it any more.Dinner was quick and easy last night – it started out with chips and salsa (not paleo friendly I know… for some reason blog land has been talking about their non paleo loves and it had me dreaming of these salty treats) and then finished strong with a salvadorian sausage and a summer squash with 1/4 of a large yellow onion. It was all delicious! Dinner may or may not have been followed with some cookies to enjoy while watching the movie BUT that is neither here nor there…Waking up to all this gross snow lead me straight to my tea jar. When I did foodie pen pals a little bit ago my match sent me a collection of tea and this is one of them. HOLY YUM. I ordered a giant tea collection off of amazon yesterday and can’t wait to get it today. 96 bags of tea for $11 is just fine by me! My tea supply is running low (aka only the ones I don’t like are left…) so it was a must make purchase.
Speaking of online purchases I received a few orders yesterday! A GIANT bag of dates that I will be turning into homemade larabars and some coconut oil so I can continue baking! Currently en route to my apartment is also a Chobani set that I won off another blog (for the roomie – I don’t eat greek yogurt), two packages from PV.Body (I am so impatient and want these NOW!!), and of course the tea! It’s basically like Christmas in the Megan / Amelia household. Amelia definitely puts me to shame with her online shopping, she gets a new box from amazon at least once a week, so jealous.
Q: Are you a tea or coffee person? How many a day?
Q: Love snow or hate it?
Q: Are you one of the lucky few who has a car that can beast through snow? Or are you like me and avoid hills at all costs in fear of getting stuck?
