The icemageddon hit Dallas on Thursday night. Sufficed to say, we had a four day weekend. Well…I did. The beau had to work Monday because the roads were better. Our school district (and every other one within a 30 mile radius) opted to stay toasty and at home on Monday.
I should have graded papers. Meh.Maybe I should have worked on my final exam for next week…erm, no.
What did I do?
I worked out (seriously). And…we made mimosas.
That’s right. My family’s classy.
Then somewhere in-between, we slid to Starbucks and had disgusting soy gingerbread lattes, bu enjoyed each other’s company, managed to meet Mom for our posted Sunday Brunch and spent the lazy time cuddling because we had power, but some dolt ran into a pole – effectively ending our spree with awesome cable time.
Our weekend, in pictures:
We opted to warm up the truck, thaw off some ice and laugh at the ridiculous thought of walking to Target to grab ingredients for stew. Because, you know – I would totes be up for that adventure!
And…so was HE!
while at Target I had a particularly hysterical discussion with my Mother, who demanded spirits to keep warm. I seem to get my theatrical flair directly from her.
Hence…Mimosas! with our brunch.
We stayed tucked away in our apartment hidey-hole, went for some laps at our gym (on-site, soooo thankful!) on Friday and Saturday. We even ordered Thai food! Let’s just be glad these guys braved the roads. They were pretty terrible.
Our Sunday proved much more adventurous. We went to Breadwinners!
Our foodles were delectable. I could only eat half my plate, so we may just share next time.
Everything was wondermous and hit the spot, perfectly! Sigh…
On our way out, I spotted this little guy.
I was so full (and would have felt terrible) – leaving him behind was the best option. My jeans thanked me for it, later. Though Krispy Kreme has haunted me with their damn red light as of late. I swear! It’s always ON!
Gah. It was soooo great to have some time off to enjoy life. Don’t you just love those days?
We’ve got a little over one week left of classes and then my kiddos are off (as am I) to enjoy the winter break.
I’m loving every minute of this winter.
How about you?
What yumminess have you come across lately?
Most importantly, what Christmas party attire have you decided to don?
Red Lace, frouffy sleeves and black pumps.
I’m gonna ROCK it!
Much love, CerebellumChef
