Champagne Brunch Bridal Shower

This past August I hosted a bridal shower for my good friend Anne (who has since gotten married). Background! Anne was one of my first friends in Delaware. About thirty seconds after we met, we were doing shots of whisky (yuck). So yeah, friends forever. She was kind enough to host a baby shower for me. Her maid of honor lives in NYC so I offered to host the shower. My aunt and my mom had come to visit for the week prior and helped me to get the house ready which was amazing of them!

Snow Day Cinnamon Buns with Cream Cheese Frosting

Winter Storm Jonas hit the east coast yesterday. I'm not sure who decided to start naming winter storms. Seems pretty dumb... anyway, it hit us this weekend and so we were snowed in for the weekend. The snow started on Friday night, and I went for my weekly grocery shop on Wednesday. It was crazy! I've never seen that many people at the grocery store before. I mean, yes, we were due for almost 2 feet of snow, but it wasn't like we were going to be snowed in for weeks at a time. Who doesn't have enough food in their house that in an emergency situation would actually starve to death? I mean, I was there for groceries, but we ALWAYS have food in the pantry from dry cereal to canned beans. We have all sorts of things frozen as well from frozen vegetables to a bag of chopped walnuts.
