Chillaxin Day from our ‘Ice Road Trucker’ experience last night!!! ;)

woke up to this as the view from our bedroom window this morning. 😉


went to look out our front door and moved fresh snow out of the way.

2nd & 3rd layers……..fleece pants then snow pants….long sleeve shirt then fleece pullover…….


all wret to go!!!!  jacket, beanie,, boots, & mask……he played outside for hours like this and never complained!!!


Miss Dev! 😉


breakfast – Zonebar

we found this cool statue -the adults went on a walk to check out the area and walk down to the convenient store to get a couple of things till we could get to the big grocery store later……we Texans thought we’d do others in town a favor and walk and NOT drive today after our near ‘Ice Road Truckers’ experience last night!!!!! hahaha! 😉


gorgeous scenery!!!

Me and my honey!


my snow angel – Lexy and I made snow angels but my hubby videoed it instead of taking pictures.

walking back to the resort from the store 😉


lunch – protein waffle with SF syrup and PB and apples


the iPad boys!! 😉


had to make them take a break from playing in the snow to eat lunch


this afternoon the sun started coming out – it made it sooo pretty and bright!



snack – alfredo spaghetti sauce with tomatos


have I mentioned how gorgeous it is here?!?!?!?!?! 😉


while we were at the store stocking up on groceries for the week – Daddy helped the little ones build a snowman!


too cute!!


snack at the grocery store- was getting HUNGRY!!!


Courtney & Devyn and Torry & Ty went down the road to watch the Texans game while we put away groceries and got things organized. I made up some roasted veggies and salsa to eat on for the week while making the kids dinner.

dinner – tortilla pizza with turkey pepperoni, onions, bell peppers, cheese. butternut squash fries with spaghetti sauce for dipping. (was too lazy to go to the car to get packets of ketchup- it was also TWO degrees outside!!!)


the girls made their bed all nice and neat while I made dinner – they were so proud! 😉


the Gabester being cute!


ps- this is the weather here right now!!!!!!!!!  I can honestly say I have NEVER been in weather that was colder than the teens…….so this is a whole new experience for us!!!!!!   Lady at the store said it was supposed to be -17* by the time we wake up in the morning!!!!  holy smokes!! Thankfully its supposed to be sunny and a high of 28* tomorrow and then a high of 34* on Saturday.


We bought sleds in town today so LoTs of Sledding FuN ahead tomorrow!!!!!!  YaY!!! Can’t wait!! 😉

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
