I'm so excited! I'm so excited! I'm so...

We have ANOTHER snow day tomorrow (Wednesday). This is getting out of hand. I don't think I've ever had a snow day since I started working. Crazyness! The district where I teach rarely even has delays, so three days off has been really surprising. I'm still so excited!

I haven't done anything too exciting. Tonight I decided to drink some raspberry lemon tea, which was such a great choice. Every time I prepare tea for myself I wonder why I don't make it more often.

Tomorrow I'm making some homemade gluten free fried rice. I cooked some brown rice in my rice cooker for the first time yesterday. I forgot I had it. Seriously. It's been over a year and I've never used the thing. (I personally think this means I need to be a stay at home wife and find all the things I've forgotten about. My husband disagrees.) Anyway- It's best to make fried rice with day old rice, so that's taken care of. I'll let you know how it goes!

As I was going through my photos today I realized I left out a HUGE LIFE MOMENT FROM THIS BLOG! I cannot believe I haven't shared this with you guys. 

For Christmas..... I received a dog treat maker.   

I KNOW!! How could I forget to tell you?  I'm so sorry. 

It's even shaped like dog treat. My in laws laughed when we opened this, saying "We just had to!" They even bought two boxes of mix- One whole wheat and one bacon flavored. 

So during Christmas break, I busted it out. Mixed up the dough. 
Cut out little treat shaped pieces. 

 Baked them.

Iced them...

...and enjoyed them. 

Drew and I checked out the ingredients and they were basically waffles shaped like treats. Drew even tasted one (that wasn't iced) and said it tasted like a stale waffle. 

I'm just so happy I could share this moment with you all. I feel like we are closer than ever now. Best buds. Maybe even family. Maybe we should move in together? Too much? 

What was the funniest gift you've ever gotten?
Do you have anything in your kitchen that has never been used?
Give me some motivation to go run tomorrow. DO IT!
