But Spring Though…
Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?
Snow Day Shenanigans
The day has come and Badiana packs her stuff up to meet Nicky post-work at her place. She walks in feeling like a bag lady, still incredibly sore from her training for a 5k, and hurls her stuff in her corner. (Yes, she has a corner at Nicky’s place.) Time to get this show on the road and pour the beverages! She is not one to waste time and we’re all adults here.
Nicky is blasting 80s pop on Pandora and the mood is officially set for the both of us! With drinks on deck and music filling the air, let the snow day shenanigans begin.
In honor of our hilariously awesome bestie snow day, we give you a list:
5 Ways to Rock an Adult Snow Day
1. Have an all-day dance party.
2. Face Masks for the Win
We are all about that skin care/self care and we both conveniently have face masks on hand. A quick rinse to your face, apply your mask, and instant relaxation! Added bonus: this makes for super fun pics and laughs, because we all know how silly we look in a face mask.
3. Kindness Rocks
We are creative naturally. Nicky follows this movement, Kindness Rocks, the premise of which is that one message at the right moment can change someone’s life. Basically you find rocks and paint messages/happy images on them to leave around for random people to find when they are going about their daily lives. Nicky obviously has paints and set up a paint station for us like kids in art school. You don’t have to do this activity, but it is pretty fun if you give it a shot. We recommend any activity that channels your creativity (preferably that doesn’t involve using an electronic device).
4. Play in the Snow
We can easily admit that we are adult kids. Nicky has slingshots and an adorable dog named Callie (see where this is going?). Amidst Badiana having a spastic dance fit in the living room, Nicky grabs a slingshot, takes a pile of snow in her bare hands, stuffs it in said slingshot, and hurls it into the parking lot. We were literally on the floor in laughter, prompting us to go outside and play in the snow with Callie.
In short, you are never too old to have fun in the snow!
5. Limit TV time and Electronics
This one is self-explanatory, but being fully present with each other made the time together so much more rewarding.
Both of us are fully aware that if we didn’t make the choice to “take one to snow one,” we would have actually spent our time binging a television show, scouring social media every 30 minutes, and not having nearly as much fun as we did together. We had a 48-hours ladies day and only watched a total of four hours of TV. In our defense, it was the last few hours of our snow adventures and our bodies were tuckered out from dancing, spurt exercising, and running around in the snow.
Snow for anyone living in a snow-prone area can be such a pain in the neck, but any nuisance can become a pleasure if you let people in. Turn your inconveniences into conveniences and Decide Bliss.
