Snow Day!

I don't think I have ever appreciated being a college student more than I do today. Ladies and gents, I have a snow day today!! And there is a possibility there will be tomorrow as well. I used to love snow days when I was younger, that is until the end of the year when we had to make those days up. Fortunately now, I don't have to worry about that anymore.

I woke up to a snow storm in which I could barely see anything clearly. As Liz stated, Chicago was supposed to be hit with a blizzard and this was just the beginning. We're supposed to be getting hit with at least 10 inches so hopefully I'll be putting up some pictures up :)

So what is the first thing I do on a snow day? Sledding? Making a snowman? Nope! I made a delicious breakfast that did not consist of milk being added to cereal. Don't get me wrong, I love cereal but there's just something about taking the time to make a good breakfast that makes it take a little bit better.

Without delaying any further, here is a Protein Sandwich. I do not take any credit for coming up with the name or the recipe. That all goes to my roommate Kelley. She has made them multiple times and I never actually make them myself. Today I decided to venture on this delicious journey.
Two egg whites, whole wheat toast, a little cheese, spinach and turkey

After I devoured every morsel of this sandwich, I decided to lay around for a bit since well, I can. I am going to avoid going outside at all costs because getting pelted with snow and ice isn't actually on my agenda. Maybe I'll curl up with a book and a cup of cocoa.

How would you spend a snow day?


  1. Yay for snow days!! It's really fun around campus during snow days. There are snowmen EVERYWHERE. All around town, too. Last year there was a massive one in the vet school lawn..it must have taken 30 people and possibly a crane. :P

  2. Yay for snow days! And what a great breakfast! I love egg sammies!

  3. This Florida girl is so jealous of your beautiful snow!

  4. How would I spend a snow day? Scared that the world was coming to an end! It never snows in Florida! LOL :-) The soup looks great!

  5. If I had the day off today I'd be sleeping! Way too early right now...

    Enjoy yourself :).

  6. YAY for snow days!! Enjoy! :)
