What The?!!?!

Ok, so I wake up this morning with all the intentions of a pretty full know, taking some things back, gym, grocery shopping, work. Little did I know I would open the curtains this morning to find THIS going on outside:

snow! 001

I didnt even know it was supposed to snow!! There goes my day, I guess. Yoga on the laptop sounds good to me! haha. Maybe the mall will close and I wont have to work either. Im tellin ya people around here FREAK when it snows even a little, because its not that often that it does. oh and yes, that is my poor little car covered in I even own a ice scraper?!

"The FDA is warning people not to eat peanut butter because of a salmonella outbreak that officials believe claimed the lives of six people, and made more than 400 others sick." For those of you who hadnt heard about the peanut butter thing here is a link to the report. Its kinda scary, but I still finished off my jar of cinnamon raisin swirl last night ;). I figure if Im still fine after eating most of the jar over the past few weeks, the PB should be uncontaminated.

Does anyone else watch the food network as much as I do?! I just love it for some reason, and its kinda embarrassing to admit! Who is your favorite cook?...or what is your favorite show? I think my favorite cook would have to be sandra lee, all her recipes are really simple...PLUS she always has "cocktail time", and who doesnt love a good cocktail?! and yes, I cant help it...I think bobby flay is a cutie!

I just got off the phone with my mom and we have made plans to watch the inauguration tomorrow morning together. How appropriate is it that the very first african american president is being sworn in the day after Martin Luther King Jr. day?! Its so amazing how far we have come in this country and it really makes me proud that we are no longer living in the dark ages when it comes to race and people who are different. I strongly believe that everyone should have love for all people, even people who are different. America is such a melting pot and I love that. I love discovering new people, new food, new clothes, etc. So I hope everyone will EMBRACE CHANGE.

Well, Im off to make some breakie and finish up some stuffs around the house. For those of you who have the day off, I hope you enjoy it dears! And for those of you who dont...make the most of it and STILL enjoy it!

I leave you with some of my favorite quotes from MLK and they are all so fitting with the current events:

"The art of acceptance is the art of making someone who has just done you a small favor wish that he might have done you a greater one."

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

"We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now."

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."

I am OBSESSED with the Food Network! But then again, I do plan on becoming a chef of some sort in the not so near future! LOL! My favorite is Ina Garton (Barefoot Contessa)! I just adore her! I, too, think Bobby Flay is cute!! I love every show!!!

Peanut Butter and Jenny said...

ah girl this PB scare is really freaking me out! I don't know what I'm going to do without it :(. I am super torn - the smart jenny is telling me to leave the stuff alone until the scare is donezo but the pb lover in me can't stay away!

i am a food network WHORE! I love Paula Deen and Ina Garten and Sandra Lee and Giada De Laurentes...I just love 'em all actually! and I have a mini crush on tyler florence - I guess I have a weak spot for guys who can cook ;)!
