Snow day!

So after a lovely two-week Christmas break, my time off has been extended with a snow day today. Really, I think it's more like an ice day, as we {thankfully} didn't get near the accumulation that was predicted. Hubby, of course, had to work today but said the roads are more patchy than anything. It's just in the single digits with negative wind chills, so I'm glad to keep my booty in the warm house today.

Even if I'm with the two-year-old dictator. And the day will be filled with Lightning McQueen and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I've already done the Hot Dog Dance twice.

What kinda stinks is that when I'm home like this I LOVE to bake. But baking and dieting don't really go well together. I think I'll post more on my weight loss goals later this week.

Our weekend was very low key :) I spent Saturday primarily working in the kitchen and decluttering/organizing the laundry room and pantry. I had hubby move out the washer/dryer so I could sweep/mop up the inch of nasty lint, and then he insisted on leveling them. Boys will be boys :)

That evening we had to run some errands so the boys decided to be twinks.

Sunday we did a lot of work in the basement. I am so sick of it being ripped to the studs, so while I organized, hubs got some things lined out and ran to Lowes for supplies. I'm hoping we can dedicate several weekends to getting work done down there, because I hate it being such a mess.

With it being so cold, I thought it was the perfect time to make a big 'ole pot of chili {and would be some good, easy suppers with me heading back to the office this week.} So we chowed that down for supper, but were really good with our portions, since we are both on diets and working out right now.

With that being said, I won't have to worry too much about cooking the rest of the week! But here is my menu plan:

Sunday: Chili, peanut butter sandwiches
Monday: Leftover round steak, mashed potatoes, green beans
Tuesday: Chili, peanut butter sandwiches
Wednesday: Frito pies
Thursday: TBD. It's J's birthday so I'm going to let him choose what he'd like.
Friday: Chili dogs and tater tots.
Satuday: Out for J's birthday. Our niece is watching C so we'll probably just get them a pizza.

How cold is it where you are? Happy Monday!
