Mingle Monday Link-up!

Why hello, happy Monday to you! Better late than never, right?
My alarm may have gone off hours ago, but I just can't wake up today. I blame the chilly weather... I mean -25 degree windchill? Brrrr.

Anyway, I had a fantastic weekend once I got past feeling crummy for a day or so. Friday I stayed in bed and snuggled with the Beast while sipping warm drinks. When I started to feel better, I made a delicious skillet apple pie (recipe coming tomorrow) that was seriously to die for!

On Saturday we slept in and I started learning my fancy new sewing machine! Later in the day we had our friends over to watch the Chiefs (sad game...) and hang out. Sunday morning we braved the massive amount of overnight snow to hit up some church and do some brunching.

We figured while we were out we'd catch Saving Mr. Banks (amazing movie - go see it!), and came home to shovel the driveway and make snow angels. Sunday evening was mellow, and relaxing - I indulged in some Downton Abbey, while underneath a massive pile of blankets.

There you have it! Let's mingle, folks!

  1. My favorite way to keep cozy in these freezing temps is to have a pizza delivered (which I'll undoubtably feel terrible about and thus tip the driver wayyy too much) and cozy up for hours and hours of Netflix.

  2. Blankets and heating pads are my go to. I always have one plugged in somewhere which I'm sure isn't too safe but it sure is cozy!

  3. sounds like a great cozy weekend! we are at -47 with wind chill here in chicago,it has "warmed" up to -10,our high already for the day.

    downton abbey,love it!

  4. I usually would wear heavy scarves, leggings, coats, to keep me warm, but usually ends up being to hot when I'm walking around lol.

  5. My fav way to stay warmy, is in my pjs inside watching movies!!! I didn't want to leave my house today!

  6. My favorite way to stay warm is to make soup, snuggle up and watch movies under the blanket! ... and some hot chocolate!

  7. It was -22 here with a windchill of -43 this morning... I got up, ready for work and headed out in the cold and even stopped to get gas. Brr. I'd rather have been at home, on the couch under blankets watching movies!

  8. I'm jealous of your sewing machine, I want one!!

    My fave way to stay warm is with lots of coffee/tea, in my fave fuzzy socks and sweats wrapped up in a blanket cuddling my pup on the couch :)

  9. LOTS of blankets! and a hot shower :) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  10. I love sitting by the fireplace under a nice warm blanket....with a cup of tea. :)

  11. A chilly night like tonight called for a crackling fire in the fireplace... aaand an ice cream sandwich. Oops :) Tomorrow may be more of a hot chocolate morning!

  12. O. M. G. You're dog. I'm dying. ...lots of cuddles to keep away the cold, right?! :)

  13. Snuggling under blankets on the couch with my fiancé and pup!

  14. My favorite way to stay warm is to wear LOTS of layers when I have to go outside and crank up the electric blanket when I'm inside. Any chance to snuggle is always a plus too :-)

  15. Favorite ways to stay warm? Fire, hot chocolate, a movie and lots of down comforters. Unfortunately, the reality is a leaky house and wool socks!

  16. Layers & layers for sure! :)

  17. Make soup in the crockpot and snuggle up under mounds of blankets. And that's exactly what I've been doing this week!

  18. At home stay under the Blanket and while out Have Tea & Cigarette.
