Snow Day!

No school, classes were cancelled last night so this girl got to sleep in- yipee!

I was craving oatmeal so bad when I got up this morning.  Decided to make my oats taste like starbucks oatmeal this morning. (you know with the brown sugar, mixed nuts, and dried fruit…)

Into the pot… (for me and the hubs)

! cup of rolled oats
1 cup almond milk
1 cup water


handful of chopped dried cranberries and cherries
sprinkle of chopped walnuts and pecans (I pretty much always have these hanging around in my freezer)
sprinkle of brown sugar
sprinkle of ground flax and chia seeds

Better than the bucks!



With a new local coffee roaster that we just started carrying at the store- Katz coffee.

Texas chocolate mudslide… to. die. for.


all together…


Next was a short walk in the winter tundra!  (Hey it’s Texas- this is the winter tundra to us!  Especially since it was in the 70s this weekend and I wore shorts.)

Harley likes the snow, but she has such a thin coat that she starts shivering pretty much immediately.



From the patio…






The road in front of our house (no sanding/salting trucks in our neck of the woods!).




Then to do what a Texan does when they get snowed in… crank the heat up, dream about a scorching TX summer, and make some picnic food!

Leftover black bean burgers on sourdough and potato salad!





Taxes were done, then I started some studying for a test tomorrow that’s postponed because we have ANOTHER snow day tomorrow!  Now there’s nothing left to do but snuggle up with the hubby and watch a movie… wonder if he’ll go for Twilight?

Have a happy snow day!


Nerdfest 2010

I haven’t gotten to really post in so long!  But finals are over and I’ve officially started Christmas break!!  So anyone who knows me knows how much I love Twilight.  It’s no secret that I’m a diehard Twilight fan!  A few weeks ago my friend Rebecca and I went to a Twilight Convention!  It was such a blast!!  And we weren’t the nerdiest ones there by a long shot.  Let’s just say that there was a lady in a cape sitting by us.  Enough said!

I had so much fun that I thought I’d post my pics and share the Twilight love!


Waitin’ in line for registration!



In the ballroom waiting for everything to get started!





The Hillywood Show

Christopher Heyerdahl (plays Marcos)

He was really really funny!  He wandered around in the audience and answered questions.  He even took someone’s cell phone and played with it when it rang.  It was funny!

Kiowa Gordon and Bronson Pelletier- play Jared and Embry.

Bronson was really funny and outgoing and fun-loving.  Kiowa didn’t seem all that nice.  Didn’t care much for him (just telling it like it is).

Peter Facinelli!!!!  Plays Carlisle.

LOVE him!  Can’t say enough about how awesome he was!  We got tickets to a dinner that he was going to be at after the sessions and he came and sat at our table and talked to us- it was SO awesome!  He is such a nice guy!  True story- we met his body guard later on at the bar in the hotel while we were having a drink and we were chatting with him and he said that yes, Peter Facinelli is really as nice as he seems!  Meeting him and getting a picture with him really was the highlight of the day!
