Space Heaters, Diets, & Snow Monsters

OK y'all...let me just say that I'm a HUGE fan of winter. I LOVE cold weather and everything that comes with it: a fire, hot chocolate, snuggling, pea coats, gloves, coffee, UGG boots, dark nail polish, SNOW, my BFF - aka my space heater, etc.

And this "winter" we haven't had any snow, & NO dreary days that I love. It made this girl pretty sad. SO...I was pretty much OVER this winter season, and couldn't wait to break out all my summer outfits. I was ready to get my tan on, pick out some new swim suits, paint my nails bright pink, go for regular pedi's again, try out those "romper" things, and bust out all my flowery headbands.

Hymph....God had a different plan. As of right now it is a whopping 5 degrees outside with LOTS of freezing wind & snow. Normally I would be LOVING this weather...but not today. Oh, did I mention how much I LOVE wintery food?? Home made chili (Hmmmm), comfort foods like mac-n-cheese, pasta, ya know - everything unhealthy. WELLLLLL..... OF COURSE I started my diet on Monday (go HERE to read about it on my friend Lauren's blog - we are doing it together!) so no extra calories for me this wintery day :(

MMMMkay...enough feeling sorry for myself. :) This is the day the Lord has made, and I will rejoice & be glad in it! :)

Lauren & I on Sunday, indulging in our "last meal" - and if you know me at all - you know we ate at Abuelos! Yummm....Mexican food :)

PS - I'm going to try and get a video of my pup Belle ATTACKING the blowing snow. It is seriously the funniest thing I've ever seen. Get that snow/wind monster, Belle! ha!

Keep warm!! It's snowing over here in West TX. I'm not enjoying it as much as I could probably because yesterday was like.. in the 70's!? Crazy. I'm just like, TX, make up your mind!! :)
