Now, a Texas snow doesn't actually include snow. It revolves around icy and nasty roads. I was awakened at 05:30 by a phone call from Hockaday informing me that we were closed!!! My roommates were also blessed by the nasty Texas winter. Here is how we celebrated this special holiday.

Mary made us Snow Day Blueberry Muffins!

We were going to venture out in the snow, but only made it to the front step.
Allison is our new roomie! I think she's realized how lucky she is to live avec Mary et moi!
(Especially on a SNOW DAY.)

I was going to read, but with all the festivities I couldn't sit down long enough to actually focus!


Now, apparently eating butter with fresh from the oven muffins is a grand idea...EXCEPT when it's the SmartOne butter with olive oil. The oil turns the butter into "brie butter." We had to cut the crust off to get to the butter. YUCK, but ever so tasty! :)
(Don't tell Paula Dean she might be onto something with adding butter to life.)

After getting a little claustrophobic we decided to go see The Kings Speech at the local theater.

It was a good one-time see. I'm not gonna lie...I got a little bored in the middle, BUT, I'm PICKY about my movie choices. Everyone else has RAVED about the movie. So, go see it!

Did I tell you our Romanian friend, Melissa, joined us for the movie????
Just joshin...she's all American. Her apartment has a gate that faces the movie theater, so she bundled up and walked to our SNOW DAY MOVIE OUTING.

As we were exiting we spotted a bucket list item.

That's right!!!


2 words to describe our experience.


I am currently sitting in bed (ON SNOW DAY 2) listening to my Pandora station Street Corner Symphony. If you didn't watch The Sing Off you're seriously missing out!

This one is just the song CREEP.

This is a compilation of a majority of their performances on the show.

Happy SNOW DAY part 2! :)


  1. Yesterday was SO festive!
    Makes me sad Snow Day 2 is turning out to be so much work...changing the air filter, grad school assignments, and soon...I'm getting out the vacuum!!!

  2. I listened to the compilation, and Creep was definitely my favorite! I tuned to their Pandora station and love it! Thanks!

  3. wow! snow days are fun! i'm glad you ate butter and saw movies!!!
