Can I just preface this post by saying that Jason left for work at 1:30 yesterday afternoon and IS STILL AT WORK!! I actually think that he’s napping there right now since he’s been up for more than 24 hours and the roads are still pretty bad.
Anyway. The snow began last night around eight.
Murphy and I went outside to investigate. Murphy is from Georgia, so he’s not very familiar with snow. He didn’t know what to think of it.
It kept snowing into the night and when I woke up this morning, I knew that I wasn’t going to work. The whole city had basically shut down. Laugh if you must, but everything was closed – malls, Whole Foods, the city buses.
Murphy discovered that he did, in fact, like the snow.
Being stuck in the house in my sweatpants is pretty nice, but I want my husband back! I don’t know when he’ll actually get home.
I was tagged a couple times to fill out some surveys (surveys? how very myspace of me, but I don’t know what else to call them) and since I don’t have anything food or workout related to talk about, here you go.
Liz from Liz Runs DC tagged me to answer the following:
Four TV Shows I watch
The Real World
Four Words/Phrases I use too much
My stomach hurts
I don’t want to go to work
Four Things I’ve Learned from the Past
Running a marathon is hard (I’ll keep Liz’s answer here because I’ve learned it too.)
Losing weight is not going to make you happier. You are still you.
Sweet tea vodka is the devil
Four Things I’m Looking Forward to
Yoga with Kristy and Laura tomorrow (if the snow lets up)
Dinner Club dinner on Wednesday
My mom visiting this weekend
Taking the wallpaper down in the hallway
Four Things I Love About Winter
Skiing and snowboarding (although I rarely go)
And if that wasn’t enough random stuff about me that you really didn’t need to know, I was also tagged by Jessica to answer the following questions:
How many days a week do you workout? 5-6. Sometimes 4, but usually not.
What is your favorite ab move? Favorite? That would imply that I like ab moves!
If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be? Eric from True Blood.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why? I have always seen myself living in Portland, Oregon (OMG, I just wrote Portlanta, hahaha). I have never been there, but for some reason, I think I’d like it. Or London. I studied there for a semester in college and loved it.
What is your favorite beauty product you can’t go a day without? Conditioner. I have curly hair so it’s very necessary. Or a tweezer. I am fastidious about my eyebrows being groomed.
Do you have any pets? If so what kind? If you don’t what animal would you love to have?
He’s a golden retriever.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of you life, what would it be? Hmm, either hummus or pizza. Or maybe hummus on pizza.
What does your family and friends think about your blog? My family doesn’t know about it. Not for any particular reason, but now that I’ve had it for three years, it’s weird to suddenly tell them. My friends all like it, but I think that most of them don’t read it regularly.
What is one sport you haven’t tried, but would love to get involved in? I’ve never been cross country skiing. I think that would be fun.
Red wine or white wine? Definitely white. I don’t like red wine at all.
(Bonus question) What is your favorite workout memory? Running my first half-marathon with my dad and beating him by 1 second at the end.
Okay, I’m done now. What’s your favorite beauty product?
