Snow Day!

What is it about Snow Days that make people want to bake? You know, I'm just not sure, but I'm on board with the whole idea. Yesterday I made Monster Cookies (thanks Grace), and they were delish. However, all of this baking becomes problematic when you are trapped within the confines of a warm, toasty house. So what do you do? Well I have a found a solution to this quandary. My friend (shout-out Burton) discovered On Demand's "Freezone" workouts last year. And I'm not gonna lie, I spent my morning doing them today, and- It. Was. Awesome. Um, another confession, I did them alone. ( I would suggest having a buddy, as it did get a little weird) But what else is there to do when you are "Snowed in"? Well, I've taken this time and made a list (you'll thank me later):

1. Read a book by the fire (my fave is Gone with the Wind)

2. Cuddle up on the couch and watch a good movie
3. Play a game (Yesterday we played Scene It, and I think I did pretty darn well)

4. For those who would like to venture into the Winter Wonderland- build a snowman!

5. Uh, watch your favorite television shows online?

The fact of the matter is, it seriously took me about 10 minutes to think of #5 and it was pitiful. I'm terribly bored and I've resorted to making lists on my blog to entertain me. Please don't follow my advise, I have no idea what I'm talking about....
Enjoy your Snow Day, I have full confidence that you are entirely aware of how to keep yourselves entertained.

My first Blog!

So maybe it's the fact that I have been slowly starting to feel my creativity floating away from me as I sit at my desk everyday, or possibly I've just been watching too much "Julie and Julia", but nevertheless the idea of writing a blog came to me a couple of days ago and I've decided to run with it. While I have no gimmick- no real topic with which I choose to entertain, I hope that my everyday happenings will suffice. So with no real plan in mind, I dive head first into this crazy blogging world and hope there's a funnoodle and possibly a frozen drink waiting for me in the deep end.

Hmm too much metaphor? I'll tone it down next time. I'm still learning you know...
