Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

The snow started to fall here about half an hour ago, and well my work just posted the announcement, we are officially closed tomorrow. And while that means I won’t get paid for the day, it also means I can drink all I want during LOST tonight, hooray! Which actually means only a few more glasses of wine than usual. Is it weird that I am actually looking forward to the cardio I will get from shoveling the driveway in the morning? Ugh, stupid knee, I am feeling very workout deprived.

I’ve seen a lot of other blogs mention eating their cereal with yogurt instead of milk, and as someone who usually has to gag through their yogurt and hates every minute of it, I thought I would give it a try. Months and months ago I bought a box of Kashi Go Lean Crunch, and absolutely hated it with milk. It sat in my cabinet at work, unused and wasted. Last week however, I took my peach Activia Light yogurt, dumped it into a bowl and threw a handful of Kashi on top. The difference in the taste of this cereal with yogurt and milk is like the difference between cheese and sheese. I’m addicted, and ever since that day yogurt and Kashi Go Lean have been my 11 am snack.

Yums! I wish I could eat some right now. Ok, actually that’s a lie. I wish I could eat some tostitos and queso, but I won’t. I made it in and out of the grocery store alive tonight, and surprisingly it was not that crowded. I stocked up on some veggies (finally), chicken, milk, and other essentials. Also, there is a Carvel ice cream cake in my freezer that has been mocking me for days, ice cream cake is my absolute favorite. I have no idea where it came from or what its purpose is, but I want it. Anyway, for dinner I decided to utilize some of my fresh veggies and make a salad to eat with my leftover Olive Garden raviolis.

It’s just lettuce, spinach, carrots, cucumbers, and light Italian dressing and was delicious. I had a yellow and red pepper also, but I didn’t want to cut them up tonight.
My four leftover, and delish ravioli. This photo I can take credit for. It was a great dinner, although I still think I’m a little hungry.

My first glass of wine of the night, hey I have off tomorrow!  Alright, well I’m off to watch LOST and enjoy my night knowing there is no work tomorrow. Have a great night!

Enough is enough already!

Ok, seriously mother nature?  Seriously?

They just told us at work not to kill ourselves trying to get here tomorrow, which is nice of them, but then I don’t get paid.  Yup, I’m a stupid hourly employee who doesn’t get sick days or paid if the office is closed.  Well, at least February is almost half-way over.  I just wish I had someone to get snowed in with so I don’t die of boredom :(.

Alright anyway, randomly ended up at The Olive Garden for dinner.  It was lovely.  My cousin Drew is a Freshman at Rider, so they were in the area to see him and we all met up for dinner.  Umm, totally can’t take credit for these pictures because I forgot my camera, and the BB pics sucked.  Thanks olivegarden.com!

For an appetizer we ordered the Hot Artichoke and Spinach dip, and I had the Cheese Ravioli for my meal. I think there has maybe been one time that I went to Olive Garden and did not order the Cheese Ravioli, I am a creature of habit.  I still have four left for dinner tonight, yums.  Everyone else was going to the Rider vs. Niagara basketball game, but I was exhausted so I bailed and just went home to watch my Monday night line up.  How I Met Your Mother (who is she already?!), Accidentally on Purpose, and Life Unexpected.  Quality entertainment right there.

I have to brave the grocery store crowds AGAIN today to at least buy some food to have when we are snowed in tomorrow.  Thankfully I can avoid the liquor store since I ended up going to NYC on Friday night, and the bottle of wine I bought never got opened.  Looking like it’s going to be me and some OnDemand movies tomorrow, one in particular that I’m not allowed to tell the boyfriend I liked, if I do.

Time for the present picture of the day!

Only four more days until it’s revealed!  Mild forms of torture are greatly amusing to me.  Although, he did have his fun over the weekend by telling my that mine were hidden somewhere in the apartment not wrapped.  I was good though and did not snoop.

[knee update]
I stopped and cried on a street corner on Saturday night because trying to keep up with 3 boys all tall, hurrying in the cold, while in heels was way too painful to handle.  So yeah, it’s that good.
