Some Snowtographs

Today has been insane. The snow has gotten way worse since this morning. They have closed down all the major highways in Philadelphia, called in the National Guard for help, and declared a state of emergency! Serious stuff!

In other news, my test tomorrow has been cancelled! I think it was due to my snow dance! It sure worked! I believe tomorrow may be another snow day for me!

Here are some pictures outside from my glorious day. Please enjoy the Winter Wonderland in Philadelphia!

It was really coming down today!

The stop sign is frozen!

After a while, I took Jackson outside to play.  He had some fun out there with his friend, Ruby.     

Snow 184

They are kind of in love.

Snow 185

Snow 174Snow 175  Snow 172 

They could barely make it through all the snow!

Snow 189Snow 190  

After playing in the snow and a long walk around the apartment complex (inside) Jackson was pooped!

Snow 119

He has been sleeping on the lazy boy ever since we brought him back inside. He is all tuckered out!

Snow 120

Here are some pictures from the evening so far!

Snow 121  Snow 123Snow 125

It has been a crazy snowy day! They are expecting there to still be blizzard conditions up until around midnight tonight! It should be interesting to see what I wake up to tomorrow!

Pure Bliss.

It has been another crazy snow day in my world. I have had a lovely, leisurely day of laying around, catching up on my TV, snuggling with Jackson and watching the snow fall.

Pure bliss.

Then Jackson and I had a little photo shoot. We practiced our yawns together (FYI – yes, that is Jackson actually yawning and NO that is not my actual yawn)

Snow 134

Jackson and I are in love.

 Snow 137Snow 139

We love lounging on the couch together.

Snow 140Snow 141

Many kisses were given. Jackson and I were quite lazy this morning.

Snow 154

But what else can you be but lazy when it looks like this outside:

Snow 162

I enjoyed a lovely cup of hot coco. It really warmed me up!

Snow 160Snow 161

It sure is a winter wonderland out there!

  Snow 163

After laying around this morning I decided to get my booty in gear and head to the gym. I ran 5 miles and did my arms, legs and abs weight workout. It was a good time.

After my workout I knew what would warm me up on this cold snowy day – Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup!

Snow 113

I tried some Pacific FoodsOrganic Creamy Tomato soup. This may have been the BEST tomato soup I have ever had. You know from my 7 Things post that I don’t like tomatoes, but I LOVE ME some tomato soup! It was the perfect meal to warm me up!

Snow 112Snow 114

The rest of my day will be spent here at the table. I am supposed to have a Chemistry test tomorrow. I am still doing a little snow dance of sorts and hoping that  there will be no school tomorrow.

It’s hard to study with that beautiful white snow falling the background. How do they expect me to concentrate?!

We’ve been hit by Snowzilla yet again!

I love the crazy names people are coming up with for these snowstorms, they crack me up! Apparently, we are breaking records in Philadelphia for snowfall so far! We were hit again last night pretty hard and they are calling for blizzard conditions the rest of the day. The good thing is that fiance’s work is closed today so he gets to stay home and play with me today! Yippee!

I had to start the day off with a glorious bowl of oats.

Snow 106

I made banana oats this morning! My mixture also contained shredded coconut, strawberries, maple almond butter,  flax seeds and wheat berries

Snow 105 

I love making pretty oats in the morning!

Snow 107

My oats were rocking my photo shoot this morning!

Snow 108

All mixed together. YUM!

 Snow 110

I also wanted to introduce you to my new set of bowls. I was inspired by Kath and picked up a set of her Cali Bowls in Fire truck red.

A set of 4 glorious bowls!

pics 227

I am kind of obsessed with them.

These bowls are fabulous!

Season It with Soup!

***Lasy call! My Drymax Socks Giveaway Ends Tomorrow!!***

So my Snow Dance worked! My class tomorrow is cancelled and as of right now I am off work! YAY! As of 7:21 pm snow has yet to hit Philadelphia, but I am sure that will all change in the near future. So I am looking at a beautiful day off tomorrow! I don’t want to jinx it, but I can’t wait to sleep in a bit and tackle my massive to-do list!

Here’s hoping tomorrow will be a beautifully productive day!

Anyways, when I got home today I had a few ideas for what I wanted to make for dinner. I have a fridge full of produce and I wanted a veggie filled meal, so I went to work pairing some stuff together.

I ended up with a bowl full or Brussels sprouts and chickpeas (seasoned with lemon, like the other day), some cauliflower, snap peas and onions. It was green and beautiful!

I also added some spinach and feta sausage from Applegate Farms

Snow 115

When fiancé came home I gave him a few options for seasoning and he picked what I was leaning towards -   the curried red lentil soup  which was sent to me from Pacific Foods. I have never seasoned or flavored a meal with soup before, so I didn’t know what to expect, but I had high hopes!

Snow 117

The soup as a flavoring was surprisingly fabulous! It gave the veggies a little flavor kick but it wasn’t overwhelming.

 Snow 118

The curried red lentil was just the right amount of spiciness. Fiancé just said it was a great “flavor infuser!” I love his little reviews. I can’t wait to try the soup just as soup!

Snow 119

I was going to add some pasta to this mix, but then decided against it. The meal was so much better with just the veggies, at least for me. Fiancé said he still missed the pasta a bit at first, but then he said the meal didn’t need a filler. WIN!

Snow 120

Have you ever seasoned a meal with soup?

Snow 121 

I also enjoyed a lovely glass of red with my meal. It’s what we DO in Philadelphia when snow is coming – – we embrace the winter weather with alcohol!

Do you drink when it snows?

Snow 123

After my meal, in clear chocoholic fashion, I needed my chocolate fix. I grabbed a NibMor bar that was sent to me to try as well. I had my NibMor bar in the freezer, because my favorite way to eat chocolate is frozen!

It was great to pair my chocolate with my red wine! Do you like chocolate and wine together?

I tried the Dark Chocolate Almond flavor and I must admit that usually dark chocolate isn’t my favorite. I am making an effort to eat it more and try different types because I know its better for me.

Snow 131Snow 132

I love this bar! It’s organic, vegan and raw! It is also dairy, gluten and GMO free, all natural with no refined sugar. It also tasted amazing. The hint of almond was fabulous and the chocolate was full of good flavor, without being overly sugary tasting! It was yummy! I had a little square off the bar. Perfect size for filling my chocolate void!

Snow 111

I also loved the top of the bar packaging!

Snow 133

And the bottom! WIN!

 Snow 134

Do you have a favorite chocolate bar?

ASK ME ANYTHING!

Also, don’t forget that if you have any burning questions for me ASK ME ANYTHING! I am putting together a post with some of the questions asked so far, so let me know if there is anything you want to know about me!

Happy Snow Eve!
