SNOW DAY #1



It is snow day #2 for us!!! I for one am VERY excited.  Let me share what I have accomplished on snow day #1.


  • Washed my hair in the sink with a mixture of boiled water & freezing cold tap water.  You guessed it... our pipes are FROZEN.  I guess that's what we get for having an old 1940's home.  Don't get me wrong I am head over heels in love with our home.  Minus the frozen pipes, drafty windows,  and all the home improvements in our future :) 
  • Took a tiny bath with all 4 pots of boiling water & freezing cold tap water.... which made for a tiny bath with luke warm water.  I finally gave in and heated up the water around 2:00 AFTER we tried to drive over to a friends house to shower and got stuck trying to get out of our driveway.  Luckily we had some sweet neighbors that helped us get back in our driveway. 
  • Cleaned out my purse.  It was really gross.  I also took pictures (not with the gross stuff) and plan on doing a "What's in my Handbag" post. 
  • Blogged about Valentine Skadoodlehopper's This is an easy recipe and SO delish. 
  • Deleted all my pictures off my camera & started to delete them off my iphone.  Don't worry I have already imported them to my iphoto. 
  • Cleaned out my personal email.  This is embarrassing but I had 1,500 emails to go through. MOST of them were unimportant ones.... such as Old Navy, Bare minerals, J Crew, you know those coupon emails you get daily.  I did the same thing with my email last year about this time.  When cleaning it out this time around I found that I was pretty good about keeping up with it till September.  I think this is when wedding planning got the best of me. 
  • Researched the Kappa Kappa Gamma Leadership Academy.  I am interested in going to this Leadership Academy. It's in September Thursday-Sunday.  I am a dental hygienist at a pediatric dental office and I am also clinical supervisor there.  I am always looking for ways to GROW as a leader.  I feel like being a clinical supervisor puts me in "leadership role" and I want to make sure I am constantly challenging myself & growing to become a better, stronger leader.
  • Compiled all my TAX information to send off to my CPA.  I don't trust myself to do it on my own.  I don't want the IRS after me! Plus we have had a family accountant for years & years that we trust.
  • Researched getting involved in the Junior League of Oklahoma City.  It's a great way to get involved in community service, meet new people, and once again grow as a leader. 
  • EAT EAT EAT. I cooked chicken & dumplings the night before the "blizzard" hit so we ate on that all day yesterday.  Along with some oatmeal, cereal, & mac n cheese :)  Oh and ONE valentine skadoodlehopper that was left :( sad day. 
poor guy doesn't like going potty in the deep cold snow


snow drifts whooop whooop

the hubs cleaning off our cars & shoveling the driveway

I already have a list of things to do today.  Maybe I'll share tomorrow, that is if I didn't bore you enough with the list above. 

First on the list..... BOIL SOME WATER TO WASH MY HAIR!
