Gussied Up

by Jillian on February 9, 2013 · 16 comments

Well, Nemo came and went. Joe got home early from work last night so we ordered pizza and polished off a bottle of wine.


It was nice to have him home early on a Friday night, but I felt bad because I still fell asleep super early. I’m usually exhausted from the work week, so Friday’s are a really low key night for me.

We woke up around 7:30 and got in some quality Gus time. He loves chin rubs.


After procrastinating, it was time to get shoveling.


We actually didn’t get that much snow. It might seem like a lot to some of you who don’t live in the northeast, but 8 inches wasn’t really anything to talk about.


I took this as my workout for the day, since I was hungry when I came inside and knew that once I ate, I wasn’t going to hit the gym.


Joe even made us almond milk cappuccinos!


Last minute, my hair colorist texted me and said she had an opening. I was supposed to go Tuesday after work, but I’m usually there for 3 hours so I’d rather do it on the weekend. I headed into Hoboken to get my hair done and stopped by the restaurant afterwards to see Joe.

I really wanted my hair done before tomorrow, when I’ll be getting all gussied up at our overnight trip! Speaking of Gus….


He’s currently chillin’ on my printer. I have no words!

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

I can’t believe that’s how little snow the storm brought you! I’m so used to Canadian amounts of snow haha Here in Halifax, Nova Scotia where I live we got almost 90 cm of snow..about 35 inches!!! Shovelling was a bit of a mission today to say the least :P

That is absurd – I can’t believe what that storm brought!

I just got him 2 months ago – I never really cared for cats, but now I am obsessed!

You’re lucky you only got 8 inches! We have over 2 feet in MA…crazy.

Your cat is so adorable!

Shoveling snow really IS a workout! I’m glad to hear that you weren’t buried too deep; the news made it sound like a crazy storm!

Pizza and wine is one of my favorite Friday night activities. Throw in a lazy Saturday morning, and my weekend is already beyond perfect. ;) Hope you enjoyed/are enjoying your getaway! <3
