Winter Weekend

I do NOT love winter. I actually would be okay if I never saw snow again, and if it never dipped below 40 degrees. Ever.

I think my hatred for winter is actually about having to be out and about in the snowy, icy weather and worrying about the road conditions on my commute to work. Luckily, our offices closed this past Friday and don't open again until Tuesday. So I'm enjoying an extraaaa-long weekend and definitely soaking it all in.

So when Friday morning I slept in a little bit, and woke up to see this...
I actually wasn't too upset because I knew I could stay in my cozy home ALL DAY!!!

And I definitely did. I had loads of laundry going and we boxed up a few last Christmas decorations that we hadn't gotten around to yet (oops!) And then I spent the majority of my day with these:
Curled up with a good book, an afghan my momma made, slippers and even a heating pad to stay extra toasty. Seriously, the PERFECT Friday off!

J and I also enjoyed a fun date night at Outback Steakhouse. Through a Twitter promo, we had a $25 voucher PLUS a coupon for a free Bloomin' Onion to use so we barely spent a dime and enjoyed a great time. If you are on Twitter- I HIGHLY recommend following Outback. Of any company I follow, the things they do for their customers, the promotions, the attentiveness to problems--- it's unreal!!

Another good read on a COOL story about Outback is here at my friend Dave's blog! Check it out if you have time and want to read about how they spoiled a loyal customer on his 40th birthday this past year. Again- HUGE props to Outback! :) 

So between time off, free Outback, plus time for Zumba class, reading, football and a baby shower for a cousin-- It's been a great weekend!

Enough about my weekend. What did you all do? Is anyone's favorite team still in the playoffs???


  1. That seriously sounds like the perfect weekend!! It hasn't really gotten cold here yet.

  2. I have my heating pad with me now too! Only, for a different reason :/ lol. I love the snow, but I don't live in it, so i'm sure I would feel the exact same way as you if I did- Actually, I know I would since I HATE driving in the rain.

    Sounds like you had a GREAT weekend :)
