Snow Be Gone

Friday I missed you SO MUCH.

I don't know about anyone else who lives in an area that got pounded by the snow on Wednesday, but my commute into work in Boston yesterday was HELL. The snow clean up was atrocious and to be honest, the whole city could have used another day off to get it's act together.

A 20 minute bus ride took 90 minutes yesterday due to lanes being full of snow and accidents because of the still slippery roads.

Getting off the bus on Federal Street, I was greeted by several of these lovely signs:

Caution: Falling Ice. That's not a lawsuit waiting to happen or anything.

To add to my already grumpy attitude about being on the bus for 90 minutes (with NO SNACKS, the horror), I left my favorite pair of gloves on the bus. Sad.

To cheer myself up after an irritating day, I asked my friend Kristen to dinner at my favorite mexican restaurant, Margarita's in Waltham.

I love this place. This is the best location of this chain due to the outdoor patio on the Charles. It's a gorgeous place to spend a summer evening (I know it's not summer, I'm just dreaming of it), looking out at the water and sipping on some maragaritas. Last night I ditched my old standby of the Chicken Chimichanga for the healthier (but not by much) taco salad with pulled chicken. I had just the guts and only a few bites of the shell before I called it quits.

I have hot weekend plans you guys...first up, a dinner date with the hottest guy in town (to me anyway) at Lolita in Boston. After reading a few reviews, I knew I had to try it. I will have the full review for you guys next week. Saturday evening I have my very first ever blogger meet up, which I am super excited about. Then Sunday it's the playoffs (not that I really care about football, but I do care about wings). I will be heading to a bar with my friend Meg to (pretend to) watch the game.

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Odds and Ends:

*I am visiting Washington DC for work February 7th through February 17th (as well as the end of March). If any DC area bloggers want to meet up, please let me know, I would love to meet you!

*I am looking for guest bloggers for the time I'm going to be in DC as I doubt I will be able to post much. If you are interested in doing a guest post, shoot me an email or DM me on Twitter.

*If you haven't already, like The Cookie Battle on Facebook

*This post by Rachel is Totally Awesome!

  7. happy weekend! I am so glad that the ice in my area has melted after 5 days of it all; ugh

  8. Love snow in the city, but hate the post-snow day snow in the city. It's icy, wet, and grimy. Gross! Have fun in DC - such a great town!
