We’ve once again been trapped in the house due to poor weather, which means its been like, A MILLION YEARS since we’ve been able to go anywhere. It feels like I’m living in White Witch Narnia (where it’s always winter but never Christmas)(because SERIOUSLY hasn’t it been practically a YEAR since the holidays?) We’re all going a little stir-crazy.

Is it making you dizzy yet?

So my only goal for the day is to get OUT. We need milk. We need ice melt (oh BOY do we need ice melt). I need to browse the clearance racks at Target for things to wear over leggings. I need some food from a drive-thru. My children need to know we’re not the last humans alive on the planet.

If I’m feeling ambitious (and these pangs in my kidneys don’t get any worse) I might try to make it to Stroller Strides. If not, meh, Target is in the same direction. And I’ve still got 7 1/2 months to lose the baby weight before I start to feel bad about it. Also, lugging a toddler and a car seat around is really good exercise.

So hasta la vista interwebs. Catch you on the flip side. (Yeah I don’t know what that means.) I’ll be back after I’ve gotten my fill of shopping and french fries – and trying to drag 2 babies around in ice filled parking lots.

Maybe we don’t have to go out after all…

    Not to burst your ambitious bubble or anything–but you are not going to find ice melt at Target. Or anywhere. Trust.

    You’re my hero!

    Also, I don’t know what “catch you on the flip” means either, but a guy I work with says it all. the. time. Maybe I should ask him.

    Food from a drive-thru sounds so good right now. If only there was a Chick-Fil-A closer than Pennsylvania…

      There is a super secret Chick-fil-a in New York City on the NYU campus, but you need a student ID to get in. When I was pregnant I considered enrolling just for the waffle fries.

    I love that gif – that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing the past few days… A little snow is fun, but not SO much!!! I have that same sweater vest, too – love Carter’s!

    Mommy and I have a membership to Stepping Stones, and we know you must live somewhere relatively nearby because you get to go to the aquarium all th time, so we’d like to host you for a play date there if you’d like – maybe in the next few weeks?

    And, for the commented above, I’m not sure where you are, but there is a Chik-Fil-A in Paramus Park mall – is that any closer for you?

    • bebehblog says:

      I think we mean different aquariums – we’re always at Mystic Aquarium and I think there’s another one down in Western CT. Eastern CT is like a desert for chain restaurants and fast food – no Chick-fil-a, no Sonic, no Chipotle, no NOTHIN’.

      Some day we’ll have to meet up in the middle though. Do you ever go to the Ikea in New Haven?

    I so feel you on this. I went out in the morning yesterday but poor Ivy hasn’t been out since Tuesday – and that was only grocery shopping. I think we are going for a walk today even if it’s just around the block.

    We aren’t going ANYWHERE. Pfffft.

    Nesko spent the night at work the other night… he was there for THIRTY HOURS. thirty. HOURS. Thirty of them. He managed to make it home last night, but none of the side streets or alleys had been plowed and were impassable, so he drove around for almost an hour trying to figure out where to put his car, and wound up parking about two or three blocks away. Luckily, pretty much everyone had shoveled their section of the sidewalk.

  7. My california must be showing because I don’t even know what ice melt is.

  8. Londonmum says:

    yeah someone has to tell me what ice melt is…

  9. bebehblog says:

    Ice melt: chemical pellets you sprinkle on ice/snow that causes it to melt. Some times it’s mostly rock salt or sand but the good kind is full of unpronounceable stuff that prevents the ice from refreezing overnight. Extremely useful when your back steps lead directly to a small skating rink.

    Also, I hate you both. xoxo

    I think “iced melt” might have been your first words…:-)

    You can come visit us with our non-icy Target parking lot that also happens to have a Chick-fil-a next door! Not that I was there today or anything. Yes I was.

  12. jill says:

    cant wait to hear about how your adventures out of the house go! ive been sick so i feel your stuck-inside-these-same-walls pain!

    I can find leggings EVERYWHERE- but I’ve had no luck finding things to wear with them. Hubby keeps telling me my shirts aren’t really long enough, so I keep wearing the same sweater dress. Any luck at Target?

    • bebehblog says:

      Actually, YES! Sort of. I bought two dresses that were in the teen section – they’re a little too short for me to wear as a dress (I am not 18) but will work over leggings. There were some super cute tunic-y ones too, but I am limited to boob-accessible clothing for the next year+ so the dresses – with little buttons down the top – worked best. I also bought a very unfortunate pair of jeggings on clearance that will be going back this weekend. YIKES.
