I'm in LOVE...

...with UNEXPECTED snow days like today!

Today is one of those days where I was truly surprised to get the 5:30 2-hour delay call and then was ECSTATIC to find out that we had cancelled! We had some freezing rain last night and I can imagine that some of our rural roads, which might still be snow-covered from Friday's snow, were not safe to drive on. 

Since I did all my running-around-town-ing over the weekend, today is a SUPERFLY BONUS day to catch up on everything I just didn't get around to over the weekend around the house & my new 

Aaaaand, to spread the love, it's 20% off until the end of the month!

Another reason I am SUPER excited for today is that it pushes our 100th day of school back to Friday. This is something I've been yakking about for a couple of weeks because I discovered that the 100th day would have been this Thursday, and I'm out for a grade-level meeting all day. I finally decided to just celebrate on Friday when I came back, but was feeling a little bad that it would be the 101st day..even though my kiddos wouldn't notice.

Wish granted! Whoopee!

In honor of today I created a little pack of acrostic poem frames in a SNOW-DAY theme!


Well, so far, today's productivity hasn't reached beyond this laptop and a cup of chai tea. 
I'd better get busy around here! I have plans to organize my kitchen cupboards & MAYBE my closet upstairs. No promises on the latter...that's a big job! :)
I've also promised my hubby a good dinner since I'm home all day.
I'm thinking chicken & black bean enchiladas! Mmmm!

Here's to celebrating snow days...or ice days!

Until next time...
