It snowed last night. 🙁 You’d think I’d be excited about the first true snowfall of the season, but I think winter is the worst! Ick.

But, I do get to dress super stylish when I take Murphy outside:

I’m actually wearing 2 hooded sweatshirts– in addition to a t-shirt, thermal shirt, a long sleeve shirt, and a fleece jacket. I’m a freak. (I can’t believe I put this photo on my blog! 😳 Oh well. It’s not like it’s the first ridiculous photo of me on the internet!)

Murphy wasn’t sure what to think about the snow this morning.

Like Mom, he didn’t love it. 😕

Thankfully, Murphy got right down to business and we were back inside just a few minutes later.

For breakfast, I made a nice, warm bowl jar of oatmeal.

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp wheatberries
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
  • Cinnamon
  • Almond butter

I really wanted hot coffee with breakfast this morning, but I was too lazy to make a pot and the cold stuff was already made.

After breakfast, I spent about an hour catching-up with emails and blog stuff. This job never ends!

Around 1:00 pm, my stomach started to grumble, but it was time to pick out our Christmas tree, so I grabbed a cashew cookie Larabar to go.

On the way to the Christmas tree place, Mal and I sang along to John Denver and the Muppets in the car. It’s Mal’s absolute favorite holiday album. He knows every word to every song.

There was a sea of trees to chose from!

Like every year, Mal was on a mission to find the perfect tree.

Luckily, he has a good eye for quality Christmas trees, so it didn’t take Mal long to find a nice one.

Mal picked out quite a beauty of a tree! It’s nearly perfect! 😀

After a quick trim off the trunk, we loaded our tree onto my car.

Our tree looked a lot bigger on my car than it did in the lot! It’s massive!

Once we got the tree set up, I threw together a quick salad with deli ham and a scoop of pesto on top for lunch. I was starving!

Mal and I have a nice little evening planned tonight: decorating our tree, listening to Christmas music, baking sugar cookies, and drinking eggnog. Can’t wait!
