Seven Quick Takes - IT SNOWED Edition

1. It snowed here in San Antonio last night. It wasn't much. What people up north would call a "dusting." But it might as well be a snowpocalypse here. Schools closed. Alex's work closed. All of our neighbors were outside taking pictures of their cars. It was adorable.

2. Here's a picture of our cars "covered" in snow. It could be closer but I wasn't going to put on actual shoes or anything and leave the apartment.

3. What is NOT adorable is that this "inclement" weather meant UPS wasn't running today which meant the delivery I was expecting didn't arrive. Argh.

4. Jack has been sick all week with a double ear infection. He's feeling much better now but he and I have been DYING to get out of the house. We ventured into the (legitimately freezing) cold weather yesterday only to find we were the only people at Gymboree. Neither one of us cared because WE LEFT THE HOUSE, HOORAY!

5. I can't get over how cheap it is to make your own household cleaners. I made a vinegar and water concoction this week. And I've got some baking soda just waiting to be used. And all of it cost less than 3 bucks. Sweetness.

6. I'm also thinking about using baking soda to make my own shampoo. I've been thinking about trying this for a while now but I keep chickening out and buying more shampoo. I'm not sure what my hold up is because we'd save a TON of money on toiletries if we'd stop using shampoo. (Well, if I stopped using shampoo. Alex has informed me that he won't be going down that particular hippy road with me.)

7. We are thinking of the braving the roads this evening so I can use the Half Price Books 20% off coupon. Cheap Books > Treacherous Roads
