Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

I know you can't see me, but I'm jumping with joy because we got a Snow Day today!!! YEAH!! The flurries began to fall this morning and I got the call from my link on the school phone tree at about 6:00 a.m. that school was cancelled! I don't know about anyone else, but I have REALLY needed a Snow Day! We've only been back in school for a month now, but I'm already counting down the days until Spring Break. It's sad, I know. Oh well...
So, wishful thinking took me to Wal-Mart last night to get a few "must-haves" in case we got snowed in. Our survival kit for snowy weather is chili, cookies, and hot chocolate. Yum! Yum! In case you haven't ever tried it, this 2-Alarm Chili is some of the best I've ever had! You can find it at Wal-Mart for about $2.00 and it has all the spices for a delicious chili already measured out for you in the kit. Also, it allows you to make it as spicy or mild as you choose. It's easy and great! I'm all about easy! In fact, in case you've never tried the Great Value chocolate chip cookes...they're some of the most scrumptous cookies you'll ever put in your mouth!! And check out that delectible hot cocoa! That's right...it's Godiva. One of my sweet students gave that to me for Christmas.
Well, the wintry mix is still coming down and it's a winter wonderland outside! I've already gotten the call that school is cancelled for tomorrow and I can't wait to sleep in. Happy Snow Day to you!

I use to love a snow day when I taught school but I always wanted to know the night before because you could sleep the next morning and not have to get up and listen to the radio to announce if your school was closing or not! Chili is always called for on a snow day! Sounds great!

Snow one week and 75 the next. Thats living in the South for ya!!

I'm hoping the storms they are predicting aren't too bad.

Hope you've had a great Monday!

Elizabeth, Hope you have a happy birthday. Just saw that it was your special day on Kelly's blog (don't even know her, just a friend of a friend). Just wanted to tell you that I miss reading your blog. I know you were new at all of this, but your dad's wedding blog was so cool!
Hope everything's going great for you!
Amy
