Snowed In

Monday, February 11, 2013

This weekend, we had the best kind of snowstorm: one where you actually feel "snowed in", but our power stayed on. Usually, I hate being housebound, but this weekend any excuse to stay home, be lazy, and wear sweats was met with open arms.

Saturday ended up being a perfect day for baking two kinds of cookies: chocolate chip with sea salt and some Valentine sugar cookie hearts, decorated by my small helper and number-one taste-tester.

There was a lot of reading, a little crafting, and a bunch of hooting at the hockey game. Leafs beat the Canadiens 6-0, which makes this girl a happy camper. 

Fun fact: Chocolate milk + Baileys = maximum deliciousness. It's like extra-rich, extra-creamy chocolate milk. A delightful little bevvy for your hockey game viewing. (We ran out of wine. I had to improvise.)

By the time we were able to get out again, on Sunday afternoon, I kind of didn't want to go anywhere.
