This and That

It's snowing again today. I think I get spring fever every time it gets above 35 and the snow melts. But then I get my reality check two days later when we get another 5 inches of snow. I'm getting a bit of cabin fever from being cooped up so much. I keep seeing facebook status updates of people doing outdoor things and I'm super jealous. But, I will say that despite the cold and the yucky driving conditions, it is really pretty. I'm so incredibly grateful for the beautiful view we have out our apartment windows. Snow can get so ugly after a few days of being driven in, but not having a view of the street at least keeps it pristine white for our view. I have to keep it positive so I don't go crazy. Hahaha!

Ben started Kindermusik today. He's been super excited about it for weeks. All morning he kept asking me when it would be time to go. Then it finally was time and we got there and he went in and didn't participate in anything. I figured he was just observing but would be excited to tell me about it afterword. Sometimes when something is totally new, he does tend to stay back and observe. But when it was time to leave, he told me he wasn't coming back ever. He told his teacher that he wouldn't see her again because he was never coming back. I asked him why, but he didn't have any reason, so I guess maybe the winter doldrums are getting to him too.

I'm so determined to be a more consistent blogger this year, but some weeks just don't seem to have much in the way of blog worthy activities. So, since I'm cooped up inside due to snow and I'm completely in the mood to bake, I'll leave you with a few pictures of Ben's cupcakes from his adoption party last week. And then I'm going to go work out before I figure out something fun to bake today. I'm thinking homemade soft pretzels might be in order.

Yup! I was totally craving more cupcakes after Heather's wedding. These were pretty good, although the chocolate part was the best. Pretty sure there may be a repeat with just chocolate for Valentine's day. :-)
