What a week!

    This weather has been amazing.  I sincerely hope we do not get a freak snow storm.  Its not even April and our lawn is already growing and super green.  With the weather constantly gorgeous, our weight watchers recipes haven’t been all that exciting.  We are still sticking to our program, but just keeping it simple so that we can grill outside.

It’s hard to be in a bad mood after work when its this amazing outside!

    Stay tuned this week as we should have some new onesie designs and new T-shirts!

What was I saying about a winterless winter?

   Last night it was raining and after we went to bed the wind started to blow furiously.  Our house is old and when the wind gets really strong, it feels like our house is going to blow down.  Everything creaks, the windows make rattling sounds, and combined with the sounds from outside, it was tough to sleep.  When I awoke this morning, it was snowing and blowing pretty hard.  I stepped out onto the porch on my way to the backyard to let the dog do his business.  I noticed the blowing snow, the covered cars, the drifts, our shiny new stainless grill……wait a second…where is the grill cover I bought?  It must have blown away like a giant parachute.  I walked up and down the street this morning in pajamas hoping to find it and praying that I didn’t have to spend  30 bucks on another one.  No luck.  Defeated, I walked into the backyard with the dog and there it was!  Lesson learned.  Grill cover needs to be bungee’d down.  Remember two days ago when I wrote about a winterless winter?

A winterless winter.

    This winter has been sort of a bummer for me. I love the snow.  The majority of the people that i know find my viewpoint obnoxious because I work from home and don’t actually have to drive in it, braving the elements like most people.  With all of that being true, I still love the snow.  It’s January 11th and its sunny and gorgeous out, cold, but pleasant.  Last night, for the first time this winter, I was glad it was nice out.  We acquired a new grill from my parents for the holiday, and I was able to fire it up yesterday for the first time.  Besides making pizza’s, grilling is my favorite thing.  I pour myself a Firestone Walker IPA, bundle up, and stand outside like a man grilling meat…and it was fantastic and peaceful.  We just cooked a few boneless chicken breasts, but they turned out great.  As we close in on mid January, I think I’m OK with no more winter, its late enough where if it arrives it will be somewhat annoying.  Who am I kidding, we live in Buffalo.  We will get hit with something nasty before the winter is finished, I’d bet on it.
