This weekend was spent in hibernation. It's so cold and the ice and slush makes going anywhere, even to the grocery store, an "event." David has been working 7 pm - 5 am so my mornings are spent tip toeing around and whispering on the phone. Even though I feel like a shut-in, it's actually kind of nice to hibernate. Saturday night we ordered pizza and watched a marathon of the Americans and it was great.

One of my new years resolutions was to read at least one book a month. I'm sure that's an extremely low number for a lot of people, but I'm not much of a "read for pleasure" person so I thought 12 was a doable number. I finished How to be Parisian this weekend since it was my February book and already want to re-read it. Next up is a book about money that I heard about on Kelly and Michael... I'm guessing that one won't be as enjoyable. How are you doing on your new years resolutions? I can't believe it's already March! 

Have a good start to your week and thanks for reading.

Welcome to the weekend. This week was pretty great between the snow and David starting on nights (meaning he was home during the days). Our pipes did freeze once which was less than pleasant. There are a million little things that we do in our daily routines that need water and it made me fully appreciate modern plumbing. 

Our power went out for about 5 minutes as well, and I was pretty ashamed of my reaction. Rather than worry about heat or safety or our food going bad, I just thought "my phone is going to die and I'll have no way to charge it!" haha [ insert emoji with the monkey covering his eyes]. New found appreciation for plumbing and electricity - check and check.  

Have a great day and stay warm this weekend!
