It’s freezing pretty much EVERYWHERE. On Instagram and FB, I’ve been hearing just about everyone talking about their cold temps, except for that darn Florida… I mean, they’re sweating down there and are SO SPOILED!
I know, I know. I live in Colorado, but seriously, our weather tends to be pretty mild. I mean, 300+ days of sunshine doesn’t lie…
Regardless, when the weekend came along, I was so ready to hunker down and not leave the house unless absolutely necessary. When the weather gets cold like this, I channel my inner-Tennessean. I buy what I need to sustain the weekend and stay in. So, that’s exactly what I did (for the most part):
I knitted up a new present that I’m trying to sneak in before the holidays. There’s something gorgeous about a rich red yarn… oh, but will there be time to get this done??
I baked cookies for my grandpa’s 89th birthday present. Love this Guy, and I’m hoping he loves these chewy spice cookies! Sharing the recipe later this week…
I finally got my mail, and received the most beautiful gift from my Fitbloggin Secret Santa! Thanks, Deb!!
I did a ton of food prep for the week, including whipping up this beautiful (easy!) kale salad I picked up at Costco – - Try this!!!
I went to see Catching Fire with my friends Deb and Matt, and I LOVED it!!! I’m also obsessed with Katniss’ wooly knitted cowl, and I think I’m going to have to make it. Gorgeous, isn’t it??
And probably the most exciting part of the weekend (because I’m really the one turning 89)… I got a new washer/dryer! My old washer rusted on the inside somehow (not even sure how that’s possible!), so it was more of a need than a want… but it’s still awesome!
Sort of a quiet weekend to say the least, but I avoided the elements and stayed warm, which was important!!! Although today, we had a CRAZY HEAT WAVE!
I know… it’s only 22, but it felt at least like 40! Awesome!
I hope you guys are out there staying warm. How did you spend your wintry weather weekend??
