Snow Day

Sunday night Baltimore was lucky enough to miss the 'snow emergency' and escape with only a few inches. I was a little sad that I missed Bostons first big snow fall of the season, but I have a feeling there will be plenty of more snow to come!

Since we were only getting a few inches, I decided to take the risk and drive down to D.C to visit Bailey. I drove like a nervous nancy at a whopping 40 mph in the slow lane until I got down there. Happy to report, I arrived without any accidents!

We spent the night catching up and drinking wine. So happy I was able to get down and see her. Hopefully we will be able to get together in a few months, perhaps someplace tropical?? Who's in??

Book Club/Cookie Swap

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Last night I ventured out to Davis square to meet up with our Book Clubers! We met at Beth's adorable, festive apartment for wine, apps and of course...lots of cookies. Each person brought a different kind and by the end of the night, we all got to take home 9 different types of cookies - great way to try new recipes!

Check out Beths blog for pics!

Of course, we did talk (a little bit) about the book, which was The Glass Castle - it was a very good, quick read and I would definitely recommend everyone to pick up this book.

Sports Fix

Lately, I've been attending a few sports games that have been a lot of fun. I am not really a sports fans...more there for the excitement of the game/food/beer. And this past Sunday, I got to go to a Ravens game with my Dad!

Notice the purple cowboy hat - Baltimore fans go all out for Ravens Games, including purple camo pants, hats, gloves, sweatshirts, painted faces - you name it, people are wearing it to show their purple pride. I attempted to wear a cute gray hat that has a little bow on the side - everyone vetoed it and said I had to wear a purple and black hat with a huge raven on the front...cute.

Yup, the flames are for Ray Lewis - while the song 'its getting hot in here' is playing...absolutely ridic...

And tonight, I will be attending the BC and IU basketball game!
