A Sick And Snowy Day

Happy Saturday! What are your plans for the day? I plan on taking it easy and hopefully kicking the little cold I picked up. Have a great day πŸ™‚


When I woke up Friday morning, it was very apparent that walking around New York City Thursday night was not good for my physical health. I really wanted to stay in bed but I had some deadlines for work that I had to meet so I got up and ready. Since my run Wednesday morning didn’t end up happening, I had some overnight oats in the fridge still. Once I put some milk in the container and topped it off with a scoop of peanut butter, I drove to work and ate at the office.


I think my library needs a new copy of this book…

During lunch, I started readingΒ “Murder on the Orient Express”Β by Agatha Christie. Considering how much I love crime and thriller novels, it’s probably weird that I have never read one of Agatha Christie’s books. I’m late to the game and definitely jumped on the band wagon once I saw that there’s a movie coming out. The trailer for the film looks really good so I’m hoping the book is too.


The entire day at work was spent sniffling, sneezing and blowing my nose so I immediately put on pjs pants when I got home. I’m usually okay with staying in jeans after work but if I’m sick I want all the comfy clothes. I checked emails on the couch while watching the snow fall outside our window. When Alex got home, we opened up the box of holiday fun from one of my company’s suppliers. They sent 21(!) boxes to my office. In it were some pita looking crackers, a few different types of cheese and little chocolate cookies. How cute is the snowman cheese?! We think the snowman is wax around it but I’ll report back when we open it.

I worked on some blog posts for next week while sitting by the tree with a candle burning. I consider it a win that I could smell the candle even though half of my nose was congested. It’s the little things like that when you’re under the weather my friends! I also read more and took a super quick nap.


For dinner, I heated up leftovers for us. I didn’t have any much as I thought I did from dinner on Thursday night. Luckily there was an extra burger and some leftover roasted potatoes in the fridge that I heated up as well for myself. Topped the burger with a slice of white American cheese and dinner was served!


After dinner, Alex and I watchedΒ “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York”. I had never seen the full movie before so it was fun to watch! Fun fact – the McCallister house is in Chicago. It recently sold for a few million dollars which is crazy. During the movie, we made some popcorn to enjoy. When it was finished I headed right to bed.

Question of the day: Which do you like more – the original “Home Alone” or “Home Alone 2”?

  1. I recently read “Murder on the Orient Express” in anticipation of the movie and I loved it! I can’t wait to see the movie and how they bring it to “life.” πŸ™‚ It kept me on the edge of my seat, which is saying something because usually I have a hard time with more classic novels.


  2. omg i neeeeeed to watch home alone!!! i have yet to this season and it’s one of my favorites!!! i hope you feel better soon – get some rest and stay warm, lady!


  3. I love Home Alone! The original is the best but I do like the sequel too. But I probably only saw the sequel 2-3 times whereas the original I saw a lot. I hope you are feeling better and get the sickness out of you before the holidays!


  4. Sorry you’re sick! That’s the worst. But so glad you got to watch Home Alone 2, a classic. I’m more of a Home Alone fan, myself, but both are great!
