Sun and Snow

Today marks day 4 of no work or school!  The weather this week has been the worst I have ever seen.  Yesterday, after feeling major cabin fever we braved the streets and hit the gym for a much needed work out.  Have been feeling very lazy.

This was the scene yesterday of the gym parking lot which was covered in a thick layer of ice.

The one good thing is that for the past 3 days have been eating tons of healthy and home made meals:
Overnight oats with peanut butter, coconut flakes, granola and drizzled agave on top.

Veggie stir fry with sticky rice.

Today we got 6" of snow and had a blast playing outside.  It felt great to finally get outside and breathe in some fresh air.

Doesn't the sun look gorgeous peeking thru the snow covered trees?

The snow is back and this time with thick layer of ice and blustery winds.  I know I sound silly complaining about this small amount of snow in Texas compared to those in the North East who are getting pounded.....but, it's Texas!  Texans are not used to this, we don't know what to do.  So, today with school and work being cancelled we made the best of a snow day.  I put on a pot of soup and the boys braved the 2 block trip to Blockbuster for movies.

Yummy Veggie Soup in my favorite Red Pot!

Movie Selection - something for everyone!

Brownies for Dessert - sprinkled with snow inspired powder sugar

Looks like the cold is hanging on....
