So getting to and from work today, not so fun. Imagine me ice skating along the sidewalk to the metro in some hideous furry Target boots that I bought as part of a Halloween costume years ago but am now forced to wear for real since all my galoshes ordered off endless.com keep shredding. (The lesson to this story is to NOT order rainboots off endless.com anymore!) I looked a lot like one of those new born cows that tries to stand up for the first time only to find it's legs are no better than long sticks of jello. BUT despite the inclement weather, I was not in the least pouty because the same weather provided me my first opportunity in years to make a snowman!

So I realize he's a little non traditional, but when you spend your days in the city with a time-consuming job and no backyard to come home to, you have to take your wholesome snowy fun where you can find it! Frosty here is sporting forks for arms, a coffee stirrer for a nose, pebbles for eyes, and a coffee sleeve for a hat. All accessories courtesy of my lovely place of employment. I especially like the hat. It's like he's channeling Aladdin or one of those old man shriners driving around in the little cars at the local parade. I feel it adds character.

So what did you do with the first lovely winter snow to hit DC in years?
