I ordered a bunch of new flavors and I was so excited to get them! Nothing says fall like a good book and a steaming mug of tea. I got 6 new flavours- Stormy Night, Chocolate Orange, Chocolate Mint, Love tea #7, Sugar and Spice, and Birthday Cake. I think it's safe to say I have a bit of an addiction going on!
Saturday morning I headed to the Rec-Plex with my friend Kirsten to run stairs. I used to love running stairs, and today I remembered why! It's quick and hard, and I feel like dying after 15 minutes- I feel like I'm making good use of my time!! We did some walking around the complex once we were done, it's been way too long since we've hung out and it was great to catch up with her!
I spent most of the rest of Saturday doing some prep cooking. I find that I am so tired after I come home from school during the week and I never feel like cooking. Thank goodness there are no fast food joints near where I am living, or I can almost guarantee I'd be all about them!
I made chicken enchilada soup, honey sesame chicken, barbacoa pork, and turkey chili. I've had the turkey chili before, and it is ah-mazing! The rest of the recipes are new to me, so I'm hoping that they are good! I froze a bunch of them in single serving sizes so I can have them for lunch and for dinner. I'm planning on making salads out of the barbacoa pork and honey sesame chicken.. yum!
Sunday morning we had my parents, my sister, and my brothers girlfriend and my nephew over for breakfast! We had pumpkin pancakes that we made using a mix we got from Trader Joe's last weekend- they were the bomb!! So good..... I definitely had too many.

Will and I spent the afternoon just hanging out. It was snowing like crazy, we had about six inches on the ground by the evening. Snow makes me so happy!! We went to town and got Starbucks.. red cups are back!!
When we got home we went for a snowy walk with the puppies.
Overall, a great relaxing weekend! I'm hoping we have this much snow at Christmas this year!!
Did it snow where you live??
