Good evening peeps! How are ya?

I woke up this morning and I was FREEZING! I am not loving this -30 weather.

I started my morning with a Green Monster (almond breeze, chia seeds, almond butter, banana, and amazing grass).

Then I ventured out into the darkness to my car, and seriously almost got frostbite on the way from my house to my car.

I am a major wuss in the cold - but seriously -3o something is not my idea of fun.

Lunch today was some pasta with tomato sauce (boring, I know). The hubby and I usually buy groceries on Sunday, and we just didn't this week. We haven't felt like going out in the cold!

I also had an orange and a glo-bar:

After work I did a little bit of Christmas shopping!! I love finding the perfect gift for people.

Hubby made dinner - Chicken tacos. He cooked some ground chicken with some taco seasoning, and then added salsa and cheese and wrapped 'em up. We dipped them in sour cream of course.

I ate this toffifee while the hubby assembled dinner. I am a big help like that.

After dinner we did some more shopping and picked up a few groceries.
I enjoyed a 1/2 sweet, non-fat caramel brulee drink from Starbucks. It helped to warm me up.

How cold is it where you are? How do you keep warm?

ahhh I agree with you. I am looking outside right now (6:45 am) knowing that I have to walk in the bitter cold/hail/snow/high winds and so not diggin it. When it's cold like that...all I feel like doing is drinking an obnoxious amount of tea and sleeping in my nice warm bed with a spaceheater in my room lol. :}

It got down to 18F or lower last night - I had two medium-weight blankets on the bed! I love that we have super fluffy flannel sheets on the bed :-)

OH MY GOODNESS! -30. I truly think that my body would just shrivel up and freeze in that temperature. I'm in South Florida, and it is 82F degrees.
I love finding the perfect gifts for everyone too... this year I am getting stumped on what to get people- particularly my parents & my husband. What are you doing?

I can't imagine being in that cold again.. I complain about -10!! When I lived in Calgary, the worst it got with the windchill was -50. That was the night the fire alarm went off 5x in my apartment!! EEK!

We make those burritos all the time, they are yum!! :)

Have a great Thursday!

It was in the 40s yesterday and I was complaining about how cold it was. Now I feel guilty after reading about how cold it is in Canada!!

I keep warm by wearing fleece pajamas to bed and snuggling in blankets. It works like a charm :)

Hmmmmm, I LOVE tofifee. It's SO hard to stop at just one though!

It's only about -10 to -15 in Kamloops. BUT I'm heading back up to FSJ tomorrow where it's about -25 to -30, so I'll be right there with ya. I grew up in that kind of weather and my only advice is bundle up and don't go outside too much! Haha

You wouldn't know it was Winter here. It's very sunny and quite warm. WHERE'S THE SNOW.

A green monster on such a cold day! You are wild, woman!

It's currently 18 where I love, and I've been drinking tea... lots and lots and lots of hot hot tea.

I am a HUGE baby when it's cold too! Tomorrow we are supposed to have a high of 30F. Below 0? No thanks!!
