On a Mission

Despite the blistery cold, bitter wind, and blanket of white powder, I was on a mission.

And when I get something in my mind that I have to see/do/get, I do not care what gets in my way. I will reach my final destination.

This particular mission had several obstacles to overcome:

1). The windchill was -20°.

2). The wind was blowing 25 mph.

3). My mom and husband both told me "Do not get out in this weather today. There's a reason why school was cancelled and people are working from home." (Do you think I listened?)

Getting ready to battle the icy streets.

4). Our neighborhood streets were brutal.

5). My car actually got stuck. My wheels spun around and around, but I couldn't get anywhere.



After a trip that took 25 minutes but should have only taken 5 minutes, I finally got what I was searching for.

Caffeine.

And not just any caffeine. Diet Dr. Pepper. From QUIK TRIP.

Oh my goodness how I have missed QT's!

Needless to say, it was totally worth it.

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!! :)

Ha ha! That's hilarious. And I totally would do the same thing. We are not the prepare in advance type of people in my house, so are always out and about in the snow trying to get food & such. Oh well! Happy Friday!

Wow! Thats great. I thought it would be some must have girl item or something :) Don't worry I would brave the storm for some Chai Tea or Hot Cocoa from Starbucks!
