-:- weekend scenes







It snowed! We woke up early Sunday morning to a winter wonderland. I got out of bed, put on my boots, and took Lou out for his first big snow. And oh my goodness, Louie loves the snow. He was like a little dancing fawn, frolicking and leaping, chasing snowflakes, running like crazy. It is so much fun to watch. 

Since we were expecting snow (though, maybe not quite so much of it), we made sure to run all of our errands on Saturday so we could hunker down and get cozy today. We went into Minneapolis to do a bit of shopping and discovered, quite on accident, the best Indian buffet we've ever eaten. This one was very vegetarian friendly and there were a few dishes that were very spicy, which is really rare in a buffet. It was super good and super unexpected.

And now, here we are, eating Mr.'s homemade pizza, drinking vegan hot chocolate (loosely adapted from here), kind of half-watching some of our favorite holiday movies as we putter around, wrapping presents, knitting, cooking, straightening up, and cuddling with that pup of ours who wore himself out in the snow.

Heavenly - and I hope your weekend was too.

  2. Is there nothing funnier than watching dogs play in the snow? Our snowstorm was laughable, but boy did it get cold.

    1. I know, me too! :) Do you guys usually get a lot? This would definitely be considered a blizzard back east, but it hasn't seemed to affect people much here...

  8. We FINALLY received a dusting last night...but it's practically gone. BOO! Living in the south-western Ontario snowbelt you would *think* we would have some by now. Hmmm...and people say there's no such thing as global warming. Phooey.

    Regardless, YOUR weekend looks and sounds lovely. We'll get ours soon enough. And I can. not. wait. xo
