Weekend Shenanigans

Is it just me, or does January last a year? I saw some people posting Whole 30 pictures on Instagram the other day and I was like…geez…that is STILL going on???

The weatherman is calling for snow here Tuesday. So basically the grocery stores are out of everything and the entire state is preparing for a shut down. Gotta love the south! In all fairness, it is because we have ZERO ways of keeping the roads safe here. There isn’t much need for salt trucks and snow plows, so we are completely unprepared. Also, you might not know this about Alabama…but it is hilly AF.

This past weekend, we didn’t do a whole lot. We mostly hung around the house and played. We did go to visit Chris’s parents on Saturday night, and got our weekly meal planning/grocery shopping done.

I did make some delicious banana bread on Saturday with some bananas that were turning. We bought Zoe some powdered donuts as a special treat, and she didn’t like them because they were messy. Wouldn’t even try a bite. Toddlers. I guess I have to eat them now? Sacrifices we parents make.

Have you tried the Jackson Morgan drinks yet?? My favorite is salted caramel, but they are all so delicious. I heard there is a banana pudding one that I have to find!!! I drink mine straight over ice. Chris experimented with them this weekend and mixed some of the salted caramel with milk and vodka. It was pretty tasty too!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Linking up with Biana.

    Such a good point about Alabama dealing with snow as Kentucky is the same. And Iโ€™m sure like Alabama, there are SO many rural roads (the road I take to work, for example) that crews donโ€™t even get to! Weโ€™re getting snow Tuesday, too, and luckily itโ€™s my work from home day because no thanks. Zoe cracks me up not wanting to make a mess! I get it!

    Yes, my in-laws live in SC and it’s crazy to hear about the preparations that happen when they are calling for an inch, but makes sense. The weather here has been awful the past few weeks, lots of ice. Snow I’m used to- it’s Erie but the ice, and driving with the kids makes me grip the wheel and gives my hands cramps LOL. Banana bread sounds delish, and LOL to Zoe not wanting to make a mess. Awe shucks, Mom had to eat the donuts- love it ๐Ÿ˜‰ have a good week!

    HAHA – kids either LOVE being messy or hate it. I used to babysit a boy who hated it – which made me SO HAPPY ๐Ÿ™‚
    I think its time you all invest in snow trucks down there ๐Ÿ™‚

    This January has got to be the longest January in history. Honestly, Christmas feels like it was 6 months ago…

    Good luck with the weather, we are so bad with winter weather down here. I have never heard of those drinks, where would I find them? January has been so long for sure!

    As someone who is currently on Day 28 of the stupid January Whole30, I will assure you that it has felt like it has lasted about 600 years. I’m so ready to be finished! I may have to try some of those drinks too if I ever finish…and some banana bread…and doughnuts…

    I’m in Tennessee, and we have the same issue with the roads and hills! We live at the bottom of a hill, so when it’s icy, we don’t even get mail delivered. What happened to rain, snow, sleet, hail? Ha!

    January is seriously always the longest month of the year. I just draggsss. Thank goodness February starts Friday, and it’s a quick month! LOL I’m glad you had a nice weekend, and I hope the snow doesn’t cause too much havoc. It’s really cold where I live and it’s going to keep getting colder and start snowing tonight, so we’ll see what tomorrow brings.

    They were getting prepared and salting the roads in our area yesterday. I laughed and told family and friends, “Don’t forget to leave for work early. You know how southerners drive in the snow! One snowflake falls and they’re all up in your lane lol.”

    Whatever they call for snow I always say it’s better to be safe. I love banana bread! Whenever my mom comes over she baked some with the boys or muffins. Now I have a hard time getting them to just eat a banana because they think it needs to be made into bread.

    These Jackson Morgan drinks sound delicious… Hope you’re staying safe and warm today! Most of Ohio is shutting down tomorrow because of the cold. The high is a negative temperature. That said, places like Chicago are getting it much worse. I think we’ll be ok ๐Ÿ™‚ I couldn’t get K to close down our place of business tomorrow unfortunately. LOL

    January was foreverrrrrr in my best Sand Lot voice. I can’t believe people held on to Whole 30 this month… woof! But check out Z in her leopard and YUM to that drink <3

    I need to look into those drinks. They sound good. January took a long time to get through, but hopefully it gets warmer and the year picks up a bit.
