Snowy Winter Fun
Our weekend got thrown off kilter because our company we were supposed to have cancelled on us. We had a nice little downpour of snow and we knew the likelihood of them showing up was next to nothing even though the snow stopped by the time they would've been due to arrive. So then that left us up to our own devices.
We got a burger for lunch and when the Mr got back, I informed him my battery was dying as my remote starter was putzing on the turnover. We replaced our old clunky car battery charger with a newer car jump starter and this would be our first chance to use it. It was on there for as long it took him to hook it up, walk to the drivers seat and turn it over. BOOM! This will come in handy for sure on road trips for that added peace of mind especially if we go somewhere in colder weather. I think it also charges electronics and stuff too. It's so much smaller than our other one that took forever to charge and rarely held its charge for long periods of time. Thumbs up!
Then watched an ungodly amount of HGTV and the Mr said he was getting cabin fever after he shoveled the driveway and our sidewalk and both neighbors sidewalks. I checked sunset for our area and told him to grab the thermals and skis. After we WAY overdressed, we headed off to the state park and got in our first (hopefully not only) round of snow shoeing and skiing!
I may have gotten mah jeans a little wet!
Thankfully I was wearing my calf compression sleeves and thermals underneath so the wetness never even got to the sleeves! Oh and for any Beekman Boys fans out there, I got their alpaca shoe inserts for such adventures in the snow and they kept both of our feet toasty warm! Woot for warmth!
The Mr was quite pleased with our burn. (I burned the same. I wore my HRM)
Sunday was a pretty laid back day. We didn't get to bed until about 3:00am so we stayed in bed until about 11am. Luckily we did most of our grocery shopping Friday night so we just had to grab produce from the last store so we did that after our strength workout. I don't know why but we just weren't into it. I do so much better when I have someone telling me what to do so no more freestylin' free weights.
We tuned into the Oscars later just because no other shows wanted to go up against it. Tonight is the Sleepy Hollow finale and it's supposed to be epic and is directed by the same person who did the pilot. We are praying that it gets picked up for season three because the twist in last week's episode would make for an AMAZING season. So you know, if any of you want to turn on one of the TV's in your house tonight to Sleepy Hollow to help up the ratings, I wouldn't be mad at ya! ;-)
