Like really cold.
The temperature didn't get above zero until this afternoon, then only for a few hours.
This is my least favorite time of year. I'm trying really hard not to let myself wallow in the winter blues, but it's definitely a choice I have to make every day!
The other night I was driving to Bible study and it was cold out and snowing. I wanted to complain and stay in my warm and cozy home, but I knew I needed the time of fellowship and encouragement with other women. So, instead of focusing on how bitterly cold it was, I paused for a moment to appreciate how pretty the fluffy white flakes were as they dusted the driveway and then I cranked up my heated seats!
Enough about cold weather. Here are some things I'm loving this week!
I made these super delicious, super easy 3-ingredient s'mores from Brown Sugar Toast for date night this week. I highly recommend them!
I also made crockpot sweet potato chili. I try to have one meatless meal a week. Inevitable Adam says whatever it is would taste better with chicken, but he's a good sport about it!
Who else is excited for Sean and Catherine's wedding this weekend? I wrote about some fun ideas for hosting a viewing party over at Nellie Magazine. And yes, I will be hosting a party on Sunday night and there will be roses
If you need a pick-me-up, take 4 minutes and watch this amazing video of two brothers singing a worship song. It's amazing!
I finished reading Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore. It came highly recommended from several people and it lived up to the hype! Seriously, if you're looking for a quick, entertaining read, pick it up! It's a crazy story about a bookstore, a secret society, Google, and cracking an ancient code. It sounds random, but it's highly entertaining! Now I get to pick what I read next. So many books to choose from!
Whether you're braving freezing winter temps or basking in the sunlight somewhere, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
