Snow Day

There was a lot of snow from blizzard Nemo the night before which was beautiful to see when we woke up- or I should say, when I woke up. (Gavin was awake much earlier watching soccer.)


I made us breakfast and called my mom.


Gavin and I had dinner plans with his friend from back home and his friend’s girlfriend. I snagged a photo with my scarf to send to my mom for her Etsy account before heading out.


And a subway shot with Gavin!


Weekend Wrap-Up

On Saturday, I finally went to the post office to pick up my package Asos. I really like shopping for clothes online but I have to remember to send them to work instead because our USPS folks sometimes can’t get in the building.

In the afternoon, I went for a haircut and Gavin took Milo to the vet. Milo is fine. Really. I won’t go into detail but it was clear there was something wrong. But has medicine now and it way better than he was several days ago.


On Sunday, we hosted a Super Bowl party in our apartment. Gavin’s friends Pete and Suzie came over, along with their friends (whom we’ve met before) and two new friends (we hadn’t met.) Janice came over, too, with a delicious home-made 7-layer cheese dip.


Everyone brought some kind of food and/or drinks. Gavin made lasagna. Oh, and Evie got ice cream and cookies for everyone. It was the typical “American eating holiday” (which makes this the perfect week for a juice cleanse!)
