Icemageddon 2013

This weekend turned out completely different than what we had planned.

After making it home Thursday night from my work Christmas ornament exchange {so fun!} I came home to snuggle in for what I didn't know, would be the entire weekend!  Thursday night the metroplex got a TON of freezing rain & sleet, and temperatures that stayed well below freezing the entire weekend.  Needless to say, Sunday morning was the first time I left our house, let alone step into the yard!

With Matt's job he is classified as essential personnel & unfortunately, had to be out working in all the mess and was gone all afternoon/night!  Luckily for me, Sunday morning before work he took me out to breakfast at Whataburger and we made at stop at the grocery store.  After being cooped up for more than 48 hours, practically alone the whole time, I was super excited to get out!!

Here's a peek into my couch lounging, hot chocolate sippin', chicken & dumplins eatin, being productive around the house, happy to get out on Sunday mornin' kind of weekend...

I know there were so, so many people that lost power over the weekend & I am so thankful that although I was lonely, I had running water & a warm home to seek shelter in.  The world of technology that we live in now is pretty incredible too - my girlfriends made for great company via our group chats throughout the entire weekend - and all the time!

Linking up with Sami & Meg today!!

I hope you had a little warmer, less icier weekend than I!

  7. Sometimes a nice lazy weekend in the house is just what we need! It's been SO cold here in Chicago that I have no desire to leave the house! I think it's going to be a looong winter :)
