The calm before the storm…a winter storm is a comin’ to Chicago! So here’s the deal: I’m a-OK with snow before Christmas. It’s festive, it’s fun, and there’s is absolutely nothing like waking up after a snowfall and seeing the tree branches glisten with freshly fallen snow. But after Christmas, snow is not welcome. Moral of my short-little story: I guess I will embrace this devil of a storm (or so the weathermen say…) for the time-being. With no classes this upcoming week and the prediction of some frigid temps(!), I am having such a hard time leaving the apartment. I just want to stay all cozied up in my leggings and slipper-boots (and be thankful that all the people walking past bundled up in furry hoods and boots aren’t me!).
Though the snow hadn’t started yet, I decided it was the perfect day to have a nice, warm bowl of oatmeal. Perhaps it had some chocolate chips mixed in (I think I added too many 🙂 whoops!), 1/2 ‘naner, and some chopped walnuts. Heaven in a bowl, I tell ya! See the red-and-green potholder on the bottom? Thank you, mother, for always encouraging me to put something underneath scalding-hot bowls. And, of course I wanted to get a little festive! (The Pandora Christmas station that I created based off of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” song may have been playing in the background…)
The rest of my night? I am POOPED! Nearing the end of the semester, I am feeling unmotivated and in need of a little….Lifetime movie 🙂 Usually I’m not a fan, and I have to admit, this one was a little cheesy, but hey, isn’t that what you sign up for when you willingly watch a Lifetime movie? A perfect, quiet little night. But tomorrow I need to get out of this apartment. There are too many distractions (note to self: NEVER study in your bed when you are tired). Library, here I come!
