Magnificent Snowy Day - Ally Carter

Magnificent Snowy Day

Hey Everyone!

We are once again stuck at home because of the super cold and snow! My 3 year old has discovered her love of hot chocolate this winter, which got me wondering….

When you are snowed in or it is really cold do you like hot chocolate, hot tea, or coffee?

If hot chocolate do you add marshmallows, whipped cream, sprinkles, anything?

If hot tea do you add honey, milk, anything?

If coffee straight black, sugar, cream, flavored?

What kind of movies do you watch when stuck at home….drama, comedy, suspense, animated? Or do you just read all day?

Do you stay in your pj’s or do you actually get dressed?

What is your favorite snack food?


Hope everyone is staying warm and has a good book to read or good movie to watch!



P.S. Don’t forget to check Ally’s Tumblr page for your Fan Art Friday submissions or t-shirt contest submissions!!!


  1. I LOVE hot chocolate!! I usually add whipped cream and caramel:) I read ALL day!! My favorites books are yours:) and right now I’m in my pjs!

  2. Hot chocolate & Mocha

  3. I like hot chocolate and tea. I usually put marshmellows in my hot chocolate and honey in my tea. I like watching comedy movies for half the day and I read for the rest. If no one is coming over then I tend to stay in my pjs and eat goldfish.

  4. I love hot chocolate and I either put a little milk in it or I put a piece of my grandma’s homemade frozen chocolate fudge in it. It makes it cooler and more chocolatly! It’s so yummy. ^_^ Usually I watch either action, comedy, or romance if I’m not writing. And I stay in my pj’s. My favorite snack food is chips.

  5. I drink my coffee and my hot cocoa with whipped cream and cinnamon. Stay warm, and bundled up.

  6. When it is cold outside or it’s a snow day, I drink hot cocoa with all 3!! Little floating marshmallows, whipped cream on top, with sprinkles on top of that!! I also stay in my pj’s in bed and cuddle up and read a good book. I read ghallager girls series 6 times!! I love that series!!

  7. I love snow days. Knowing the sun isn’t shining justifies my laziness. I grab a mug, pour milk, mix in chocolate and microwave it until it threatens to bubble over. PJs are a must, so are romantic films and novels. Ahh…pure bliss.

  8. Hot chocolate with cinnamon, vanilla, and whipped cream!
    I watch any movies and I read!
    Also, stay in my pajamas and eat warm cookies.
    Anyway, it’s -23 degrees out so I’m going to grab another blanket!!
    XO, Kristi

  9. Hot cocoa all the way! I usually add whipped cream, but sometimes marshmallows. I generally read/internet all day, but I watch Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Pirates of the Caribbean when I watch movies. Unless I’m required to be somewhere, I stay in my PJs! Favorite snack food… Mozzarella sticks for sure!

  10. I would…

  22. Well it was snowing on the weekend in Colorado. Though now it is just cold and the whole town looks like Jack Frost came by for a visit. What I usually for snow days which are more frequent in the spring……..strange, I make homemade hot chocolate. It is amazing! Not as amazing as the kind that I read in Home for the Holidays in the mother daughter book club series. German chocolate melted over a double boiler and hot steamy milk poured in with homemade whipped cream yum. My favorite snack would half to be hmmmmmmmmm if I were to make it would be chocolate chip cookies. I always like sitting in front of the fireplace and reading a book. If I get to bored with the book or need a break I watch a movie or plays games on my nook. I would have to say I watch mainly the Cinderella stories( I love them even if they get extremely cheesy at times), Ice princess, or Psych the tv show. I usually stay in my pajamas for half of the day anyways because I am too lazy to change out of them.

    • Omg! I also read the Mother daughter book club! It’s such a cute series. I’m rereading them again with Gallagher girls, The Beacon Street Girls, and Hunger games! So their what I read on snow days.

  23. I don’t drink tea or coffee so for me it’s always cocoa with whipped cream. We never have snow days here, they are just too dang prepared:( when I did have snow days though Inwould watch movies and read books. Have fun I miss those days off.

    2. Marshmallows
    3. Milk & sugar
    5. Romantic comedies, Disney movies, or just read
    6. PJs!
    7. Chocolate or cookies

  27. I live in the land down under so we don’t get the cold like you do. If it is cold (cold being a relative term) i like a hot chocolate with a shot of peppermint schnapps, but only if I’m not working that day or the one after (give this a shot when you’re old enough to drink it is highly recommended). And on the other 360 days of the year i take my ice coffee ice cold with a double shot of espresso and my ice tea with peach. as for what i read on my days off it varies but as my three favourite genera’s of modern prose are teen drama, spy and heist there is only one logical choice of whom i re-read over and over.

  28. Where I live it it’s summer at the moment and it never snows here (I have never actually seen snow) but I love to have hot chocolate all year round and tea which i have with milk and sugar. I HATE coffee though cause it tastes really bitter

  29. I live in Australia and where I live it NEVER snows or gets super cold but when it is cold…
    I love having hot chocolate and if there is marshmallows I put them in
    If I’m staying at home then I usually read and if I watch a movie it’s usually like a family/kids movie or a favourite movie of mine
    I would either stay in my pj’s or where like track pants/legging and a comfy sweater
    And I love chocolate!!

  31. I drink hot chocolate- it’s a classic here in New Jersey, USA because it’s SOOOOO FREEZING COLD!!!!!! I just jup tiny marshmallows in them, but I should try whipped cream…. I watch all sorts of movies during the holidays, but I like to watch Christmas comedies like Elf- so hilarious. I defiantly stay in my pj’s all day. If I could, I’d go to school in my pajamas. I love popcorn, no matter what time of the year it is!

  32. MarvelNerd says:

    Hot chocolate! I’m just now starting to add marshmallows to mine and I’m loving it! I like all movies. Animated, suspense, and action are my favorites. I always seem to stay in my pjs when I have a cold lazy day (: no matter how unhealthy it is my favorite snack foods are anything sweet from cookies and cakes to brownies and pies!

  33. I love hot chocolate with marshmallows. I read or watch dramas, I don’t stay in my pjs and I like pita chips.

  34. I like hot chocolate with marshmallows, whipped cream, sprinkles, and extra chocolate!!! πŸ˜€ I usually read or go online or something. Occasionally I watch movies, but not usually. My favorite snack is probably… Hmm… Chocolate covered pretzels! I also quite enjoy cheez-its. πŸ™‚

    Sometines I get dressed earlier in the day, but only if I’m going out in the snow. I have this thing where I feel really weird if I don’t get dressed at all and just stay in my pajamas all day, so I get dressed EVENTUALLY, but usually not until 1 or 2 o’clock. xD

  35. On snowy days I like to curl up with a book, and apple cider, or hot chocolate with whipped cream and a pink curly straw stirrer. If I do watch movies, which happens occasionally, they will probably be action movies or rom coms while munching on crackers with cream cheese topped with pineapple habanero sauce. (yummy!) I usually get a shower and put on fresh sweatpants and a top.
    Stay Warm,

  36. One snowy days…
    I drink both hot coco with LOTS of marshmallows and hot tea, witch ever im in the mood for
    and read LOTS!!!!!!!!
    I eat cookies!

  37. Hot Chocolate Fan says:

    If it’s really cold I LOVE hot chocolate. I like hot tea too but I’m still more of a hot chocolate fan!
    Marshmallows in hot chocolate make it taste AMAZING, you must try it with the marshmallow!
    Whipped cream hot chocolates are also great.
    I stay in my PJ’s. They’re so comfy and warm, and there’s no point in getting dressed because you don’t have to go anywhere πŸ™‚

  38. I LOVE hot chocolate!!!! Especially with marshmallows{big and small:)}. When I’m ever stuck at home{which I’m normally not b/c I live in the south, but we did get two delayed days this week:) } I like to do an even day of adventure movies{w/some of my little brother’s movies} mixed w/Ally Carter books and mystery books:) What I wear depends on my mood but most days I stay in my pj’s b/c they’re comfy. My fav. snack food…hmmm…chocolate and fruit{or maybe sour patch kids:D;any other s.p.k fans out there?} Well,
    **~HAPPY 2014 EVRYONE~**

  39. I love hot chocolate with mini marshmallows and whipped cream and this year i’ve really loved the eggnog coffe from starbucks, i read most of the day (mainly gallagher girls) and i love watching fantasy movies like the mortal instruments or beautiful creatures and any movie with Alex Pettyfer in, i stay in my pj’s all day and eat cheese doritos and oreos

  40. LiveLoveDance says:

    I stay in my pajamas and love popcorn, pretzels and M and M’s
