A Long Winter’s Nap…Arctic Style

Yes, even though I’m “back to work” typing this post, the first few days off from my 44 Nutcracker show marathon have been spent nursing a cold and hibernating at my mom’s house in Ohio.

And with the weather outside looking like this…

Frozen tundra

I think it’s time for that long winter’s nap!

My Favorite Things – In Anticipation of Easter (A High Carb Post)

My mom, and my husband and I went to the West Side Market in Cleveland yesterday to purchase ingredients for our Easter dinner.  The market is one of my favorite places to visit whenever I’m in Northeast Ohio and I’ve written about it before on my blog here.  Yesterday’s shopping list was actually short – just 4 ingredients – but that didn’t stop us from walking every aisle and taking time out to enjoy a Frank’s Bratwurst sandwich.

And although we already gave each other Easter baskets (sometimes you just gotta start celebrating early), I’ve decided that I’m getting all of these goodies next year!
