Blizzards and Baking

Good morning!

How was your weekend?

On Saturday night, we went out to dinner for my friend Jenny’s birthday.

We went to a hibachi restaurant and it was so much fun. I think I’ve only been to a hibachi restaurant one time before when I was a lot younger.

After dinner, we picked up the kids from my mom’s house and that’s when the snow started. We had a winter storm warning and by that night, it was upgraded to a blizzard warning. Gotta love Chicago.

Sunday we were pretty much stuck inside all day because of the snow. Our Superbowl plans were canceled since driving was out of the question. Luckily, Danny went to the store on Saturday to buy fajita makings.

Since we were stuck inside during a blizzard, I decided to bake. I made S’mores bars. Amazing.

The recipe, of course, is from Sally’s Baking Addiction. I think it’s my life’s goal to make every single dessert from her blog. They are all amazing!

My dad also randomly showed up on our doorstep during the day. Apparently, he was “testing the roads.” It was before the worst of the blizzard started so he made it back home okay.

We ate fajitas and s’mores bars, and watched the Superbowl and commercials.

Needless to say, school was canceled for today. My plans are to do the Bikini Body Mommy workout at home and maybe another exercise DVD. I don’t usually workout at home unless I have to but when I do, I’d rather follow an exercise DVD or a YouTube video.

Have a great Monday!!

  • Did you watch the Superbowl? Favorite commercial?
  • Did it snow where you live?
  • Are you working out today?
