My Husband… When it Snows


We’ve got snow… lots and lots of snow!

We woke up to over a foot of snow and its still coming down.

Here’s my wonderful husband shoveling as snow is falling at a rapid pace.



Yesterday in preparation of all this snow, my husband went to the store to make sure we were stocked up on necessities and the ingredients for my second pizza attempt.

He came home with this.


You can imagine the look on my face when I saw this. I’ve never seen steak-umm’s or heard of them in my entire life.

His response: “When you were little didn’t your mom make steak-umm’s during bad snow storms?”

My reply: “First off, I’m from Texas, snow storms don’t exist, Second… these steak-umm’s look gross.”

His reply: “When it snows I eat steak-umm and bacon… that’s just how I roll.”

I couldn’t help but giggle.

I’ve broken this man of so many bad nutrition habits (whole milk, cheese whiz, to name a few), but something tells me the steak-umm’s are sticking around.

After hours of shoveling, the snow is still falling.

I decided to light the fireplace and managed to capture a moment in the living room.



Awe…. Guess he can keep those Steak Umm’s…


Saturday Question….

Does your significant other have any bad eating habits? Were you able to break them?

Have a wonderful weekend!

    Yay snow!!! and that last picture is sooo precious!

    I have never heard of Steak Umm’s either at all and I’m from around here but to each his own. I have to say that I’ve actually dated people who either ate like me or healthier (which wasn’t good when I was sick). I do know that my mom got my dad to change his habits… especially with vegetables after they got married :o)

    Aww such a good hubbie shoveling! I am in MA and so far so snow for me, but I hear lots coming tonight.

    My sister loves Steak Ums, to be honest I have never had them!

    But when I hang with my sister I do tend to loosen up my eating a bit, she isn’t into Whole Foods the way I am….in the past my boyfriends haven’t been into it either!

    Happy weekend,

    Holy Steaks-umms! I could eat some right now.

    …a manly man who shovels snow, then spends time with his beautiful baby is awesome. My husband did the exact same thing today. =)

    WOW! You are such a talented photographer, what lovely shots! OOoohhh look at that snow! Here in Saudi winter is the BEST time of year because it is the only time of year we can really go outside.

    Hmmm…my sweet hubby and I are both vegan but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have some bad eating habits! He will eat half a dozen falafel sandwiches a day if I let him. I don’t worry about that one too much, it is his coffee habit that worries me. 😉

    Awww…what a great cuddly baby picture! That’s funny– I always see Steak-ums at our grocery store, and think, “What in the world…??” Funny stuff.
