Five Favorites: Snow Day Essentials

Wednesday, March 6, 2013


We're enjoying a long-anticipated snow day here in Virginia - even Andrew is off work!  Here are some of my current snow day favorites:

Indoor activities like Rainbow Rice are perfect for the morning when you're still trying to find all the snow gear you packed away in mid-February when it looked like it would never snow.

A communal collection of hats, mittens, scarves, boots, and snowsuits ensures adorable dress-up AND snow readiness (eventually).  Ignore whatever John Paul seems to be doing on the couch...

Bundled up kids and snow gear from college that will fit me forever (
Lands End kids clearance circa 2004 FTW!). 
Pancakes for lunch!  Lemon-blueberry pancakes to be exact.  It's amazing what the addition of lemon zest can do for a simple pancake!
Hot chocolate in fancy tea cups

Well, 1/3 hot chocolate, 2/3 milk.
There we are!  Check out other favorites at Moxie Wife!


  1. Love the kids in their snow gear! So cute!

  2. You are so cute! That jacket is adorable. And your little ones! They're darling, too! Thanks for putting a smile on my face! :)

  3. What a lovely day you had! Everyone posting food for this link-up is making me seriously noshy, though. Dang.

  4. Ok I'm not kidding, I saw this at dinner time and promptly got up and made lemon blueberry pancakes for dinner. BEST IDEA EVER!!!

  5. So sweet! That's a workout, wiggling all those littles into snow clothes!

    Love your snow gear! Yup, I've got some girls' large from Lands' End that fits just fine, thanks! It's economical!

    1. SO much cheaper! And those children's sizes really do get pretty big :)
