Remember how I said I was going to be doing something surprising on Saturday? Well, the surprise didn’t happen. I got snowed/iced in on Friday night/Saturday morning. I had a fun day anyways and the surprise will be postponed until February. Hopefully the weather will cooperate!Β This was the scene outside my window around noon, after the snowplow came.

Since I didn’t do “the surprise” on Saturday, I had fun doing other things this weekend like:

1. Running on the dreadmill. I ran 32 miles last week. Not too shabby, but I didn’t go along with my 2012 goal of running in the cold 2x a week. Oh well!2. Eating delicious food. Typical.Iced coffee after an ice storm. Hmmm…MochaChicken tenders, mac & cheese, and green beans.I went out to eat with Jimmy at Eat n Park and got the rosemary chicken with white wine sauce.

3. Did a little bit of homework with a side of peanut butter.4. Woke up looking crazy and messy.5. Walked Lola on a local trail! I don’t have a picture but she was really happy to play in the white powder.


I can’t believe Penn State has already started the third week of the spring semester! I am finally beginning to feel settled into my classes and the coursework. It feels good and I wish I could go back to three weeks ago when I was so nervous and tell myself that everything would be okay. That’s life though!

I’m thinking about writing up an informational post on eating seasonally. What do you guys think? What are your favorite winter foods?!



  1. Dang that’s a lot of snow!! The cold doesn’t really affect my eats either haha I love me some smoothies all year round πŸ˜‰
    The anticipation for the surprise is gonna kill me!

  2. My favorite winter foods… coffee and hot chocolate. Seriously, I’m keeping my keurig hot these days, literally. But, I also live in the South so temperature doesn’t have much of an affect on what I eat. I could drink an iced coffee today, after all our high is around 70… anyway. Congrats on your 32 miles and I think it’s totally okay that you did not run in that show, don’t even worry about running in the cold when there’s snow like that out!

  3. Wahhh. Sorry to hear about the snow ruining your surprise. Rude-let’s just move down south ha. Your training is really increasing, I’m so happy for you! Who cares that your running is not outdoors. I def think that you are still getting it in so that is all that should matter.

  4. Squash and sweet potatoes! I’ve been living on sweet potatoes lately, since my parents still have TONS from the garden stored away–that means free, seasonal AND organic. πŸ™‚

    Jealous of all your snow, even if it ruined a surprise. So pretty! And ugh, I’ve been a major running-in-the-cold failure too. It just hurts! Where’s the fun in that?

  5. Well, I think skipping running in the show is OK. I think there’s a difference between running in the cold and running in the snow. πŸ˜‰ LOL

  6. I love eating warm oatmeal in the winter but I still love drinking smoothie and eating a bowl of salad any time of the year. πŸ™‚
