So after my post yesterday I headed out to try some shopping, I made it out to two stores and the got to the third and it was closed! Wahhh…the snow really didn’t come and hit us until after 11pm yesterday because when we woke up this is what it looked liked…please enjoy these snowy pictures!
These are all taken out of our hotel window, we haven’t gone out yet because we still have a blizzard warning until 7pm and nothing is open! We aren’t even sure what we are going to do for lunch! Ahhh!
Anyways, after shopping yesterday I met Chris for lunch at Amatos, my favorite sub restaurant! I got a small original italian.
We hung around the room until about 5pm yesterday and then headed out to a local Mexican restaurant…it was okay but I like the ones in our town better… it was lacking flavor for sure! After dinner we went to the grocery store because obviously if a blizzard is coming you need to have ice cream on hand! We bought Ben and Jerry’s Strawberry Cheesecake! It definintely made up for the fact that dinner was sub par! Also, we got two cookies at the front lobby! And hot chocolate because the hotel has a hot bar all the time!
This morning we woke up to 2 feet of snow and still snowing! We hit up the hotels breakfast buffet and have literally just been staying warm in our room until we decide to venture out! What I think is awesome is that the hotel gave all of their staff member and families rooms for the night so that the staff could actually be here for work today!
Here is breakfast from today, french toast sticks, bagel sandwich, fruit salad, maple sausage! Yum!
Did you get snow today?
Hows the weather where you are?
I hope all of you in the Northeast, like me, are getting ready to hunker down for the next couple of days as we get tackled with two feet of snow! And I thought it was going to be a mild winter…silly me! Right now I am sitting in Chris’ hotel room as he finishes up his work week! This morning I woke up around 7:30 and headed to the hotels gym, which I had all to myself! I really enjoyed this gym, even though it was small it had great equipment and a TV attached to every machine! I miss that, in college my freshman year they built a brand new recreation center with an indoor track and the equipment each had an individual TV attached! After my workout which looked like this…
I hit up the breakfast buffet! I had three turkey sausage links, a glass of apple juice, and a western omelet!
In a little while I’m going to head out and check out the shopping scene up here before the roads get too bad and then I’m going to meet Chris at my favorite sandwich shop, Amatos! Amatos has the most outrageous pickles you have ever tasted, and I am a pickle connoisseur! The really bad, blizzard conditions, aren’t supposed to start until about 7pm EST so we should be able to head out for dinner too! If not we will be walking across the street to the other hotels restaurant!
Stay warm everyone! I hope you didn’t have to go to the grocery store yesterday! I went just to pay my electric bill and it was mobbed!
Did you have to go to the grocery store yesterday?
Are you a Northerner? Are you ready for the storm?
So like I said yesterday I am heading to Bangor, ME on Friday for a mini vacation and last night I was trying to do a little research and figure out what to do up there for three days. Chris and I have already planned our restaurants out but what to do in between eating is the question! I started using tripadvisor.com which is also an app as well as a web page. I really like it because you can enter the city and state and them once you do that it breaks it up into categories.
What to eat, what to see and where to stay! You can click on the recommendations and see actual reviews which I especially liked! Although there is not a lot to do up in Bangor in the winter except for freeze your butt off, I think we will figure something out! If anything well just camp out in the hot tub at the hotel for three days!
This morning I had to wake up to help a friend out by watching her son until his daddy gets out of work at 8:30 AM! Followed by an awesome workout! My resistance to running is definitely getting a lot better. I’m not fatigued after five minutes which is awesome and it really lets me know that this program is working!
Also, my friends (the ones I babysat this morning for) just got a Great Dane puppy named talula and she is adorable but huge! She’s only three months old!
Off to work I go! Only until 5! Great short day! 🙂
