Eat This Not That, Winter Weather, and Girls Weekend!

This is one of mine and Adam's favorite meals.
chicken nuggets, mac n cheese, Sister Schubert rolls (YUM!)

Of course I'm doing WW and husband is not. He is enjoying delicious meals like this... while I am eating this instead...
Don't be jealous. And don't be fooled... it is NOT baby poo, but is V8 Squash soup. I LOVE squash... no luuuuuurve it! V8 Squash soup is not my fav.  It IS, however, only 5 WW points compared to the 15 points that is nuggets and mac. :)

WW is going ok. I'm not losing as rapidly as I did in college, but I also haven't exercised the last two weeks because of temps in the teens this week and the gym being closed due to inclement weather.  I weigh tomorrow so we shall see!

Speaking of frigid temps... it is seriously frigid. At first it was really pretty and fun that husband got to stay home one day. But going on day 3 it is getting old! The ice and snow is no where close to melting because temps haven't been above 20 degrees in 3 days. On top of that, we are supposed to get another light snow tomorrow and another storm on Sunday! I'm. Over. It. Wishing I had booked that work trip to Orlando like I had planned!

It snowed about 6" on Tuesday.
There was a snow wall formed at our back door!
I took this from our neighbor's front porch. The roads were completely covered with 1/2" ice then about 6" of snow on top. 3 days later, the only difference in this picture is the roof has less snow! Nothing else has melted and the roads are more compacted and slick!

In other news, we had a GREAT weekend! Husband returned from Boston and we had about 2 hours before 7 of my closest girlfriends from college showed up at our house for the weekend! We had such a full house Adam stayed at Ryan and Sarah's house for the night.  We try to all get together once a year in December, but last September 3 of my best friends were involved in a terrible car accident. One of our friends, Elizabeth suffered a traumatic brain injury and nearly lost her life. She spent weeks in the hospital and has continued recovering at home for the past 2 months. This weekend Elizabeth was able to join us for our belated "girls weekend!" It was such a fun time to all be together! It is so amazing to see what God is doing in her life! She is truly a medical miracle and it is only by God's grace that she is healed!
 Before dinner on Saturday night
 We all bought matching pjs!
 Delta Zeta Sisters
I love this sweet girl so much. She is a beautiful person and has a heart for people. She is passionate about Jesus and encourages me so much! Read her testimony here.

Hoping the snow melts enough where my MIL and FIL can make it up for the weekend! We LOVE it when we have visitors!
