Happy Monday!! No shock here, it was another snowy weekend in Boston and we were snowed in once again on Sunday!! In just 3 1/2 weeks we have had 4 storms and 7 feet of snow...it's safe to say Gary and I may be contemplating a move to the South!! Regardless of the weather we still managed to have a great weekend and it's a three day weekend for me so there's that!!
It was a weekend of lot's of movie watching, starting with 50 Shades of Grey on Thursday night! I checked a few theaters in Boston and apparently it was being shown a day ahead of the national release so we ventured out to see it! I wont go on in detail about the movie...but we'll just leave it at I liked it and I thought it was tastefully done!! If you want to read what an 83 year old grandma thought about the movie check it out here! We also watched Nightcrawler with Jake Gyllenhaal & I actually hand't heard anything about the movie, but it was really interesting! He was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actor and seriously deserved it because he plays creepy all too well!
For Valentine's Day we decided to head out early and get some brunch at Eastern Standard. It was so nice not having to fight the crowds - definitely starting a new tradition of brunch on Valentine's Day! I didn't even get a picture of the egg concoction that I ate, but it was incredible!
We probably should have waited for them to clear our plates, but we took advantage of there not being anyone to our left!
After all the indulging it was time to walk off brunch! Gary clearly needed to show off and dove right into the snow...I also made myself comfortable and created a makeshift snow bench!
Cards, flowers and not shown is the bag of Mint Milano cookies that was devoured by the both of us this weekend! For dinner we agreed to try a try a new recipe from The Newlywed Cookbook and it was delicious - recipe coming this week!
Everyone always asks what do you do in a snow storm? Well you eat, a lot!!! Not to mention it gives you a lot of time for blogging and cleaning...so the house is clean and the blog has been worked on! I also spent a lot of time getting to know my new computer!!! My Mac was just not cutting it for what I needed to do and we upgraded with a seriously amazing sale that Microsoft was having!! You'll notice I already put that xoxo screensaver I mentioned last week! I may or may not have hugged it at one point this weekend...it's touch screen and that makes me really happy!
Around 4:00, we were going a little stir crazy so decided to venture outside...mistake number 1!! It's really beautiful, but way too cold! We quickly realized home was way better!
Also, huge thank you to everyone who entered my Talaria Flats giveaway last week - the winner is Kate and I'll be emailing you shortly!
slightly obsessed with this
