The Cold Never Bothered Us Anyway

Okay, I'm totally lying. Winter/cold/snow are not my friends, and they do bother me sometimes, but Jared and I didn't let it stop us from enjoying our weekend. Friday night Jared had a guy's night and I went to a going-away party for my coworker which was a lot of fun. It was at Ruth's Chris so I got to enjoy some delicious appetizers on the company's dime. I don't do much with coworkers outside of work, so it was nice to socialize and kick back a little with them. I didn't stay too late because I wanted to beat the snow home and I did just in time!

I've lost track of how much snow we've gotten in the past week- it felt like it just kept coming down at all different hours of the day! I was supposed to go to a friend's baby shower Saturday, but they ended up canceling it because too many people were driving too far, the roads just weren't that great. So Jared and I hung around the house most of the morning but knew we needed to get out. Luckily there is a really nice movie theatre just a few miles down the road from us, so we bundled up and very slowly made our way there.

We saw McFarland USA and I highly, highly recommend it. Kevin Costner stars in it and it's an incredible story. Not to mention it's by Disney, so of course it's good ;) We left the theater practically ready to watch it again- or at least pre-order it!

We stopped in at the grocery store on our way home to pick up a couple things and I was ENTIRELY too excited to see their giant Easter display. Even though I was bundled from head to toe and my boots were wet with snow, this little section of the store made my night. I'm an Easter addict, it's true.

Oh, and a puzzle addict. Jared and I spent the rest of our weekend inside putting together yet another puzzle. A person can only venture out too long in this weather before she realizes she is definitely with Michael Scott on this one. ;)

  9. The roads really weren't great this weekend. I drove from Cincinnati to Columbus on Saturday afternoon for a wedding and we were going about 50 mph on 71. Ugh...it took forever, but it was worth it!

  13. Food on the company's dime is always the most wonderful. I think we had the same reaction to the Easter displays and you can bet my willpower was strong to not buy any candy!
