The Snow Day That Wasn’t

Happy Sunday from a freezing cold Atlanta!

I am 100% positive that yesterday and today are the coldest day we have had since last winter aka today is the first day Joel and I have (reluctantly) had to use the heat in our apartment. All week, we had been anticipating a winter storm to come through late Friday night/early Saturday morning. The weather channel said we were expected to get about 3-4 inches of snow.

When we woke up yesterday morning and peaked out the window – all we seemed to have gotten was a whole bunch of freezing rain and ice. The brittle trees were all covered in icicles but there was no snow to be found. Not that I was very disappointed considering I am not a fan of the cold and/or snow.

We started our morning with a workout together. I am loving our new Saturday routine we have. With Joel’s job, he normally has work on the weekends but the last couple he has had off which has been great. We started the workout with a mile run warm up before completing an Upper Body Circuit. It was a great way to start the day (aka being lazy for the rest of the day).

We ran a few errands before relaxing on the couch to binge watch our latest Netflix obsession – How To Get Away With Murder.

We recently made a commitment to make a meal together one night a week (which typically falls on Saturday night). The combination of Joel’s job often has him working some nights + our different dietary preferences has led us to be on our own for dinners most nights. We are creatures of habit and typically eat most of the same foods everyday. So in an effort to change up our routine (and to teach Joel how to cook), we have made an agreement to cook something different/or eat out once a week. This sounds silly, but so far it has been great + has been a great date night for us every weekend.

Last weekend we made Lettuce Tacos! This weekend is breakfast for dinner. I could seriously eat breakfast foods and biscuits everyday, all day long if I let myself. On the menu for tonight is an egg white/spinach scramble (for me – I haven’t gotten Joel on the egg train yet), Applegate Chicken & Apple Sausage and PANCAKES!!!

I literally cannot remember the last time I had pancakes – it was honestly those pre-made frozen ones sometime in high school.

Joel was quite the pancake making pro.

Bet you can’t guess which plate is mine…

And cookies… because why not. My neighbor back home makes THE best chocolate chip cookies every holiday season. My mom was nice enough to send Joel and I a few of them in the mail this week. 🙂
