Who Says You Can't Have Adult Snow Days?

I've been consumed in puzzle land for the past three days, which also accounts for my whereabouts.  I had every intention to spend my snow day catching up on bloglandia.  Guess what, it didn't happen.

Instead I spent snowpocalypse being 100 percent unproductive.

On Sunday the bf and I entered into puzzle land.  I even decided to whip up a baked ham. I say whipped up a ham in the sense that I had no idea what I was doing but just decided to go with it.  And it was a huge success because the bf and I couldn't stop eating it!  We even had it for breakfast the next morning.  It had a lil peach preserves, brown sugar, mustard, thyme and of course had to throw in some Riesling.  Honestly, would you expect anything less?  Didn't think so.  If you want the recipe, let me know.  I would be happy to pass it along.  

After we ate our weight in ham the bf suggested we take the pups for a walk.  I was all for it and I'm pretty sure so were the dogs because they were jumping in the big snow piles.  I swear they even had smiles on their face. No joke.  

Then I got the best call ever,  our office closed on Monday.  Happy dance! Normally I would have gone to bed but since I no longer had  work on Monday I got crazy and stayed up a lil bit later working on the puzzle.  I know, I'm such a bad ass.  

Slept in and snuggled with Dragon.

Made Mango Roll-Ups

3 Mangos



Spread thin on wax paper.

Bake at 175 degrees for 3 hours or until no longer moist.

Kept an eye on the dogs since you know it was -40 and all.  They so badly wanted to play but just couldn't handle the cold.  

Watched Pitbull and Parolees.  It's Dragon's favorite show and her bf was on the tv.  Love.

Drove around with the bf to check out all the snow.  Do a few donuts.  Ya know typical winterish activities.  And yes the roads were not plowed. 

Took Naps. :)

Had snack time.

Ended our day in puzzle hell.  Seriously, this puzzle was hard.  

I also took Tuesday off because it was way to risky for me to drive.  I work an hour away from home.  Yea I know, its not ideal.   I wasn't trying to spend my day in the ditch.  This morning it took me an hour and 40 minutes.  Yowzers.  Pure ice and driving = not a great time.  I was cruisin at a high speed of 25 mph on a 70 mph highway.  Just fyi. Don't try it.

  1. looks like THE BEST DAY EVER to me!!

  2. can i be apart of this snow day? except the ham. ew gross.

  3. Oh my goodness. I have been lost in puzzle land as of late too!! But our puzzle is impossible... it's a whole board of popped popcorn. Who thought this would be a fun idea? It sucks!

  4. I love this! What a great way to spend your snow day. I spent mine trapped on the east coast waiting to get back to the midwest! at least someone had a great time!!

  5. You couldn't pay me enough to live in the snow, but I certainly wouldn't mind a snow day. All we have are earthquakes and those aren't any fun. How adorable! I love that other dogs watch TV too, I used to think mine were crazy.

    Hope you enjoy finishing the puzzle (and the ham)!
