Snowpocalypse 2013

So, as many of you may have heard, the northeast got hit with a pretty intense blizzard this weekend - Nemo. Honestly, I think Nemo was the perfect name for this little winter storm - for me, it was pretty mild (I had power the whole time) and all I got was lots of pretty snow. I stayed in Friday and Saturday, cooked to my heart's content, drank wine and hot cocoa, and watched girly was pretty darn awesome! Here are the snapshots I got of the great blizzard of 2013 (and other things):

Got in 3 morning workouts this week - I love starting my day off this way!

Booth at work for Chinese New Year

Apparently I was born in the year of the rabbit...I don't think it's a very accurate description of me... 

I have my own brand of fortune cookies! Who knew??

Before the snowpocalypse, I stocked up on my version of the cooking essentials: kale, chicken, soba noodles, and wine ;-)

Nemo came!

There's a car under there...somewhere...

No way am I leaving my apartment...instead...

...I lay in bed and eat my childhood favorite - Cocoa Puffs - straight from the box

These brave souls ventured out to start clearing their driveways


My other blizzard survival staple - crepes (video below on how to make them!) 

Today I went out to go grocery shopping and came upon this adorable snow park! So many different snow sculptures were made (I took pictures of the best ones):

(Even high-brow Cambridge/Somerville enjoys a little 'potty humor')

How the big dawgs get rid of snow

Yep, you see that right. Dude 1 is chillaxin on the snow bank...Dude 2 is shoveling snow...both in their boxers. Gotta love Boston :)

And finally - the fruits of my laborious trek to Shaw's: garlic greens (DELICIOUS), mashed sweet potatoes, and black beans with ham. One of the most satisfying meals I've ever made, and pretty good for you too.

A little footage of the snow removal process

A (very) quick vid on the art of crepe-making

I have no idea what I'll be up to this week...comment or email me if you have any suggestions of fun things to do!

  1. Okay, so here's my plan...instead of seeing all sorts of cute things to make and never getting around to it, I plan to start right away! Find a craft (I did! Merry Christmas 2013!) and do it now...that's my suggestion.

    I love the spread for Chinese New Year and I guess I think a bit of potty humor is fun, too!

  2. P.S.

    I'm supposed to be a rabbit, too.
