In case you didn't hear, the Northeast got some snow this weekend. NYC was definitely spared more than the rest of New England, but we got quite a dumping on Friday. (I've been wearing my snow boots for days!) Sadly it couldn't be during the week and at least give me hope of a snow day from work. So is life. And apparently someone at the Weather Channel has decided to start giving every breeze that comes across their radar a name, so this bit of weather was called Nemo. Weird, right? Anyway, here are a bunch of photos of the snow and the rest of the things that happened this weekend.
I would have been perfectly content staying inside all day Saturday reading, but brunch was had at Sidecar and the sun was out, so it was actually a lovely day to trudge through the fresh snow. Kurt was so inspired by news of a blizzard that he booked a last minute bus trip upstate to do some skiing.
I made some of Melanie's Butterscotch Blondies and burnt them. BURNT THEM! It was such a travesty. They had such potential and I let them go
a few many minutes too long. I tried chopping off the burnt ends and drowning them in ice cream to make them edible. They deserve a second chance and more attention from me next time. Butterscotch is one of my new, favorite baking ingredients.
Things start getting brown and mushy after a day or two, and the snow kind of loses its magic. Knock on wood, but somehow I managed not to slip and fall on my butt on the second day ice! That's a pretty big accomplishment for me.
Kurt and I spent Sunday running all over Brooklyn taking care of errands. The main event of the day was getting me a TV!! So exciting!
We made a stop at Ikea because Kurt needed a frame. They didn't have the right size, so he didn't buy anything in the end. I, however, came away with plates, a pan, a frame, and a cheese grater. I probably would have bought more if Kurt wasn't impatiently rushing us through each section. That place is a danger to my credit card.
Then Kurt and I set up my TV! And we christened the set with an episode of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia'. It's a mess of wires and I need to figure out a better console system, but I'm so happy with it. I feel like a real adult! Well, not really :)
And then I watched the Grammy's from the comfort of my own couch! I loved JT's performance and the tribute to Bob Marley. I'm happy to be back in touch with pop culture :) I can finally partake in the 'watercooler' discussions at work on Monday!
I hope you all had a great weekend! Kurt and I are off to the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show tonight. I cannot contain my excitement! I've always talked about going but finally went to the trouble to get tickets this year. I'm a little worried about the puppy fever that might ensue. Stay tuned for the waaaay too many photos I plan on taking :)
