I was hoping to have a fudge recipe for you this morning, but alas my fudge didn’t firm up. It tastes good (it is chocolate after all), but it ain’t pretty. I need to do some tweaking. So, instead of fudge you get a weekend recap. Lucky you!
Our weekend started on Friday. Snow day! We had a winter storm roll through so hubby got the day off. That made for one happy Cupcake. Snow + daddy = her wish come true. She was going to play!
While she and daddy were out playing, Pumpkin was napping and I was eagerly anticipating using my new washing machine that was being installed! After 3 weeks of loud clunking and super wet clothes I was ready to quietly and efficiently tackle the mountain of laundry I was letting pile up.
The rest of the day was spent playing and snuggling and laughing and staying warm inside the house while it continued to snow outside.
Saturday morning brought a break in the weather and a 5K. The Jingle Bell Run was still to take place! I geared up and off I went. I was really hoping to run the race with a pace of less than 10 min/mile, but navigating the snow and slush was more important. Some areas of the route weren’t clear. Actually the majority of the route wasn’t clear.
But my sisters and I rocked it! And we were the 3rd place fundraising team!
As soon as I was done running I hopped in my car and drove north to attend the Spring Premiere for Thirty-One. I arrived 3 minutes late, but I didn’t miss much. I’m super excited about the new products and prints coming and I can’t wait to share them with everyone else. I’ve been scanning my new catalog since Saturday and making my wish list. I’ve got organizing to do!
And Cupcake and I spent the afternoon in the snow while Pumpkin napped. And we played doctor. And we colored. And we played some more. Hubby and I started on our Christmas movie marathon by watching Love Actually and I addressed Christmas cards.
Hubby let me sleep in yesterday morning (love him!) and we spent the morning cleaning house. I think I’m finally done playing catch up after not being able to use my washing machine for a few weeks and having the stomach bug last weekend. It was on to organizing and purging.
Joanna‘s got 4 bags of baby girl clothes coming her way! And I’ve got a bunch of clothes and shoes for Pumpkin if she ever decides to grow. I also have more room to walk in the back basement now that I’ve purged a bunch of old baby stuff and organized what I’m storing for Pumpkin. That pretty much sucked up my entire afternoon. Good thing I had a new disc of Dexter to watch while I organized.
I made homemade potato chips in the microwave and baked chicken nuggets for dinner. It was fun to eat what could easily have been a heavy, junk dinner, but it was healthy instead. The white potato chips turned out better than the sweet potato chips. But they were both good. Fun.
This morning I’m off to the grocery after dropping Cupcake off at school and over to the thrift store to drop off 3 boxes of stuff that I no longer want in my house!
That’s the exciting life I lead. You’re all jealous, aren’t you? Of my laundry and cleaning filled weekend. At least it wasn’t all work and no play.
How was your weekend? Get some snow?
