Snow Days

Back on January 8th we bad a blizzardy weekend. I was snowed in, it was cold, windy and we had a lot of snow. But all in all it was not too much to complain about because we had been having a mild winter and not too much snow to speak of. I was hoping…… Continue reading Snow Days

Hi there bloggies: Is it really Tuesday night already? The week certainly is not flying by (by any means) but at least tomorrow is hump day! (I might be celebrating a little early, huh?)

The week so far…

Is this a long week for anyone else or is it just me? Just wondering. So. On Tuesday I had lunch with my friend Nichole and she recapped her most recent success running the Philadelphia Marathon the weekend before Thanksgiving. I had butternut squash soup and a piece of Arnold’s double protein bread while we…… Continue reading The week so far…
