WEEKENDS IN SEATTLE - SLEET AND SNOW

Hi girlies, how are your weekends going? 

I see a lot of snow over the blog-o-sphere. Has the white monster hit the best of us?

In anticipating snow today, sleet came down and drenched the entire neighborhood. I was just bouncing (from excitement) out the door, to the mall, and had to retreat back home.

No worries though. We still ate yummy Thai food and had a cozy movie night in. 

Though quiet and cold, this weekend in Seattle was still as lovely as can be.


A sheet of sleet shooting to the ground

Savory cabbage soup warmed us up

Curry chicken over rice

Garlic tofu for the kiddo

Hubby's beef noodle soup

Enjoyed Chai green tea by the fire place

Have you tried these? They are super yum.




What do you usually do on a snow day?

  3. I love thai food, this all looks so delicious, I'm hungry now!

    If it's a proper snowy day, with snow covering the ground, I like to go for a walk . When my fiancee and I were living in England we used to walk in an area of the countryside with a famous gastro pub there. We'd stop off to warm up and have lunch. It was so cozy!

    But if it's sleet I prefer to stay inside, just wet and yuck then!

  20. SoCal's having a bad drought year so far. My ski bum hubby is praying for snow every.single.day.
    I think if we had a snow day, I'd make soup and we'd watch a billion movies inside, by the fire. :)
    All the Thai food looks yummy!

  22. That food looks yummy!

    Hm snow days here are rough, feet and feet. I usually stay inside, sip some hot chocolate, pamper myself by going in my hot tub, painting my nails.. etc. I basically have a "me" lazy day.
