In an unprecedented WYWW move, I am in full HusbandjustleftforJapanforthreeweeks-theblizzardiscomingandthere'snoschooluntilnextTues-survival mode. What does this means? My friends, this means I am going to defer to the "desperate times call for desperate measures" way of thinking... Okay, okay, enough with the theatrics! It all sounds potentially grim, but I am here to tell you that I am used to my husband being away and frankly, I run a tight ship when Mr. Fun isn't around! It's an all girl party and in true preparation for a big storm, I joined in the melee at Target yesterday to stock up on "milk, butter and eggs" along with some fun crafty things to keep us (myself and my two daughters ages 6 and 4) busy. I also happen to know that many of my neighbors don't have to go to work today because the entire state of NJ is under a winter storm watch --- it is entirely possible they could tromp on over for an impromptu happy hour later today!
Meanwhile - I'm not going to get crazy - I'm going to be real with you all and, instead of posting a menu, I am going to list the things that I believe I will be eating today.
Big pot of good smelling coffee ~ today's choice Chock-Full O Nuts City Blend - it's nice!
Fage yogurt with strawberries
Chicken noodle soup
100 calorie bags of popcorn (to go with the movie we will watch)
1 or 2 mini 3 Musketeers Dark Choc with Cherry (they looked SO pretty and you know I'm a sucker for marketing!)
Reduced Fat Wheat Thins w/Garlic Hummus (potential snow party snack)
1 or 2 moderate (i.e., not the giant size) glasses of red wine (this is really for medicinal purposes - you understand)
Hope the weather where you are is sunny, warm and Spring-like...I can dream can't I? In all seriousness, this kind of weather only makes the coming of Spring that much sweeter!
Have a great day!
