Baby, its cold outside.

Due to the insane amount of snow in NYC today, I'm trapped at home against my will. (I actually had to cancel an appointment I was really looking forward to!)

this is the second and third floor! i dont even want to venture to the first.

I'm happy to report Christmas went off without a hitch and a good time was had by all. (at least by me) I am the worlds worst photographer when it comes to shooting during a party - I prefer to enjoy rather than snap away - so I dont have much to share except this quick family portrait (one of is partaking against his will - can you guess which?) and a few food photos.

If you are wondering, I made the eggnog cake recommended by Amy and it was a big hit. (Its the igloo one). The angel food cake didn't go over so well - I dont think I made it right. Chocolate cheesecake and truffles were shared by my brothers girlfriend who is a fabulous baker.

Santa brought me a ton of fabulous gifts that Im excited to put to use and share on the blog.

Other than that, its going to be a very lazy day stuck inside. What are you doing today?

  4. Nice snow! We are due for a big storm this week, too. I love it. We never get trapped inside though, it could snow two feet and they won't even consider canceling work or school. Damn Idahoans.

    Can't wait to hear about all your presents. And I'm so glad your party went off without a hitch - even though you had to do it all yourself!

  5. We got a ton of snow in Chicago! I have this week off of work - I'm hibernating with my pup! Which means a good book, lots of blogging, cooking and possibly venturing outdoors for some yoga!

  14. It's up to your knees out there!! Love the pictures! We only have about 4 inches here in Chicago. We went to the zoo today and looked at an old house that needs lots of love and money, just testing out the market in my favorite neighborhood.

  24. We made the mistake of driving to the shore in the snowstorm the day after Christmas....and we just got plowed out yesterday. :-/ So instead of being productive on my week "off" I shoveled, complained, posted endless photos to facebook, shoveled some more, and wrote emails to elected officials. So in answer to your question, I believe I lost my mind while stuck inside. :-)

  25. I can not believe that that is the second and third floor! YIKES! I lived through my first real winter in Cincinnati last year and we then move back south to SC and guess what? SNOW! A couple of inches and it was pretty. I really enjoyed it because I knew that two days later, the sun would be out and the snow would be melting. LOL!
