yesterday, my friend ashlee braved the cold and came over to my neck of the woods for what would have been a perfect playdate when i was 8 years old - crafting and blt's for dinner. of course, the blt's were made with prosciutto, arugula, and truffled mayonnaise, and the crafting was accompanied by glasses of syrah; but all in all, it was good, clean fun.

i became an aunt again about ten days ago, when sam's older sister gave birth to her second daughter - so my task was to make her a congratulations card. ashlee got workin' on a valentine's day card for her man (as did i, but that is top secret for another couple of weeks.)

while i do not recommend hand-stitching your congratulations into card stock if you value your fingertips (or your sanity,) it does give me some ideas for embroidering some clothing. . . soon to come!

in this weather all i want to do is drink spiced cider, make cards, and watch cooking shows. how do you guys deal with cabin fever?

  1. I love playdates! My gal pal and I make them happen often at my Fort Greene pad- we pull out some fun items, make some snacks and geek out over our idea of 'adult' fun!

    BK playdates fo' life

  2. OMG YUM!!!! Your sandwich just reminded me that I have enough to make a BLT tomorrow. Thanks.

    I've been having cabin fever and I was sans internet over night so it made it really tough for me to figure out what to do with myself. TV was my saving grace.
