Good morning! Happy Sunday!

This morning, I woke up to a winter wonderland”¦




And a (rude) pug wake up call.


I was barked at in bed this morning. Apparently, someone was ready to eat breakfast.


After I fed Murphy, I made my own breakfast, which was an egg and cheese sandwich on a Microwaveable English Muffin and a pear on the side.


I also drank a glass of decaf iced coffee with almond milk.


I ate my egg sandwich and then sliced up the pear. For some reason, I’d much rather eat a pear sliced than bite into it. Maybe it’s because they’re so soft? I guess I don’t like biting into a mushy piece of fruit. I dunno. Is that weird?


After Murphy ate his breakfast, he went back to bed, which is just one reason why we call him “Lazy Pants McGee.”


Mal woke up a little while later and headed to CrossFit for Open Gym.


I really wanted to join him, but I gave myself a nasty rope burn during yesterday’s WOD, so I took a rest day instead.


After Mal left, I felt kind of restless, so I decided to paint the mirror on our living room mantel. It has an off-white frame, but our fireplace and its accessories are white, so it’s bothered me for months now.


It’s not super noticeable, but if you look closely in the photo below, you’ll see the off-white mirror on the white fireplace. I know, it’s no big deal, but it was an easy fix, so why not, right?


Did you notice our new accent wall!?! Mal and I painted our entire living room yesterday, and it turned out so well! We used Valspar “Cinnamon Hotel” on three of the walls and “Milk Chocolate” on the accent wall. Doesn’t our living room sound delicious? We still need to hang stuff on the walls and maybe buy a new couch (?), so I’ll post some pics of the final product soon.

Once I finished my little painting project, I went to see if Murphy was awake yet since it was mid-morning and he still hadn’t gone outside for his walk yet.


Rise and shine!


The pug is soooo lazy.


Eventually, I forced Murphy out of bed and took him for a walk outside in the snow.



It was sunny and not super cold, so he didn’t mind at all.


And I didn’t either. It was actually sort of pretty walking around in the winter wonderland.






What do you think of snow? Love it? Hate it?
