Baby, It's Cold Outside

Today's forecast looked a little something like this...

Cold and Wet!  I'm not going to lie - a little part of me hoped to wake up to a phone cal saying school was cancelled and I could go back to sleep under my electric blanket and cuddle with my husband and furbabies just a little while longer.  Especially since I had car duty this morning & Andrew took the last of his vacation this week so he gets to sleep in and stay home.  I might be a tad bit jealous.

But no such luck.  It's probably for the best.  It would have made going to school tomorrow that much harder.  I'd rather save our snow days for the middle of January when a break is much needed.  Not waste it on a two day work week.

I did receive a text from my principal last night saying we could wear jeans today and tomorrow.  Ya'll if you are not a teacher you probably don't understand the full joy that is experienced from a text like this.  I often joke that wearing jeans makes me a better teacher.

Our fence was supposed to begin taking shape today.  That didn't happen.  All in good time though right?

Last night I curled up in bed under my electric blanket with my hot chocolate and enjoyed some cheesy Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel.  I love this time of year.  Our DVR gets filled with cheesy Christmas movies.  Andrew isn't a fan of that part.  I wish I could just stay home and watch them all day every day.  

Speaking of hot chocolate...I'm already planning ideas for hosting family at Christmas.  I want to have a hot chocolate bar.  I think that would be fun for everyone.  I'm finding all kinds of interesting "mixers" on Pinterest like Reese's Pieces.  I would have never thought about putting them in my hot chocolate but it actually sounds yummy.

Hope you all have a warm and cozy evening.
