Cooped Up Cozy

We are unofficially snowed in. Lawsie Law, I'm doing my best to embrace it.

These two helped.

And then, minutes later, not so much.

They were out gallivanting around on the treacherous roads without whim or worry. No seat belts. Some sleeping, some sleeping while driving.

Full of spit and vinegar. Unruly to the nth.

Maybe not removing one's pajamas all day has this effect?

I feel ya, Sister.

You'll have to pardon me for not showcasing my pajama-clad self. I don't wear the look quite as well as they do.

What I will confess is that I got the belt to my robe caught in the trashcan thrice, the dishwasher twice and the hot oven once. I would start walking away, only to be boomeranged back to where I started.

It's almost as if robes weren't meant to be worn during lunch prep. Or dinner prep. Or clean up.

Hallelujah, these babies saved the day. Only I used the wrong taco seasoning and didn't have enough cheese to cover the top. Don't tell Teresa. She's a real stickler. She takes her cheese pretty seriously, from what I've heard.

Heaven help me - I've got to get out of this house at some point this week.

Although at this point, I'd settle for a shower and some fabric not of the fleecy genre.

  1. love those photos of the beebs, love those moments:)

    hey, we had chicken enchiladas/casserole earlier this week & it was so good we gobbled it up without taking any pics!

    glad i'm not the only one who lives, mostly, in my pj's. mine aren't camera worthy either, but that's no surprise!

    *love your "robe to my belt", took me reading it twice to catch it:)

  3. How cute! I am fairly new to your blog but am loving it... we are getting slammed with snow too here in Cleveland OH! Hang in there sister and check out the blog Filth Wizardry, she has tons of boredom busters that will keep the lil ones from driving you bonkers!

  4. I was so excited yesterday to get dressed and go to the grocery store! It's a wonderful, yet strange feeling after weeks of pajama wear.
    And seriously, not enough cheese? Does that mean no cheese, or just sparse cheese? I think I may lose sleep over this.

  12. Man. What a gorgeous family. Your day sounds wonderful. I love a day in my jammies. There is just no comfort like that. That dinner looks yummy even if it was cheese deficient. I hope Teresa forgives you.

  13. I feel ya sister. We went out to play in it yesterday and I just layered clothes over their jammies... why create more laundry? Then Isaac changed out of jammies only to don a Superman costume!

  15. I love that last picture of your husband carrying a little one. How arty and sweet! I remember snow days from my CO days.. great at first then a little batty by the end of the day. Forced chill time, right?

  16. Your kids are so dang cute. And what imaginations. I just loved days like that as a kid.

  17. That picture of sleepy Ruby driving has my tickle box going. So stinking cute. It's loungewear Shannan...say it with me....loungewear. Now, don't you feel better? Pajamas is way too strong of a word.

    We are snowed in to, and I'm loving it! We are a bit screwed though, since the wind has started howling, causing two foot drifts in our driveway. Goodtimes.

    Stay warm, and enjoy your loungewear days. Soon you'll be pulling weeds and and having to wear real clothes.

  19. Those kiddos are so darn cute! My kids stayed in their PJs all day yesterday & were loving it! However, at 7 AM today they were wanting to suit up and play in the snow - their Grandma has a LOOOONG day ahead of her I'm afraid!

  20. Your kids, really? could they get any cuter? Sounds like a wonderful day and I need you to come to SC and teach me how to cook...pretty please! :) Happy weekend sweet girl!

  21. The robe seems to be the style for today, I too am clad in the ole green zip-up,cause it's cold in southeast Georgia too.

  22. I love the jammie days at home, and that was hilarious that your belt kept keeping you at things! Made me laugh. Here are some books you might want to try out on those jammie days....I'm lovin' a fellow reader! All the Jodi Piccoult books are wonderful, as well as Lavender Morning by Jude Deveraux (if you love fixing up an old house/mysterious old lady kind of thing!) Also, Robert Whitlow(Christian author) has a fabulous set of suspense books (The list to name one), Barbara Kingsolver also wrote a very interesting book, since I'm trying harder to live off my garden/canning, etc. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Very good read for winter. Maybe some of these will spark your interest!

  23. There is nothing better than a day pjs. But I am so glad you didn't say your robe tie dangled in the toilet. That must only happen to me. ;o) I have named you as one of my very favorite blogs...so you are tagged with a Kreativ Blog Award. Check by blog...and play along! You crack me up, so I can't wait to see what you have to say. ~mary~

  24. Well, for heaven's sake! Why weren't you wearing your snuggie backwards??--no belts there!

  25. My daughter has two children in another state, ages 1 and 6. She told me last week that it was so cold she could barely go out. But that if she didn't get out soon she was afraid she was going to go "The Shining" on her family. Tis good I guess if you're a young mother to get out of the robe every few days and into town. Though it's just so ultra cozy staying in with hot chocolate and fuzzy slippers and a nice throw and read a book or magazine.

  26. I now find myself feeling challenged to spend $50 on my weekly grocieries! We'll see how it goes... I always enjoy reading your blog! Your writing is cute and witty! Thanks to you, our family had those great enchiladas for dinner this week! Everyone loved them. We just finished them off for lunch today! I cut up avocados, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, salt and pepper to make a chunky side dish. This was great along with spanish rice I found in the freezer section!

  27. I know just how you feel...going to a movie tonight...have to get out!

  28. Hmm, everyone has had a snow day but us! I didn't want to go out in the frozen tundra today to drive my little one to and fro preschool, but alas, school was not cancelled and we had to go!!

    Your kiddos are darn cute! Why is it that all kids love to sit in baskets?! My 2 yr old sometimes sits in the one that holds all of the fake food and just watches tv amongst the plastic bananas and rubber bacon...doesn't look comfortable to me, but she loves that spot!

  29. School was a GO here in Holdenville today, although it was colder than yesterday. Bummer. I had such plans of another day with no makeup, scrubbing the shower, training little Gabby some more...oh well, instead I taught about half my class (the ones who came), which was quite a sweet thing in itself.

    Your snow day sounds wonderful. The kids are so darn cute. And your writing makes me happy.

    Love,
    Tracey

  30. I just found your blog...I just moved to Missouri and have been snowed in with my two chicklets myself. I'm not enjoying it very much as I am originally from So Cal. We moved for $$$ reasons and it's working out great. But I miss the sun and my garden. My girls are actually quite nice about being stuck inside all day.
    Lots of time to blog and learn!

  31. You are too cute and so are your kids! We love jammies too. We sing pajamas pajamas to Bob Marley's jammin song.

  32. That pic of your son and husband...gets my heart going pitter, patter. My husband always says that one of his favorite things is carrying our sleeping son...the little dangling legs, the arms around the neck or tucked in between our son and his daddy's chest, and the head snuggled into the shoulder. And one of my favorite things is seeing my husband and son together!

  33. Funny how kiddos both help cabin fever and cause it...that along with headaches and smile wrinkles! Kim
