I wasn't home very much this weekend, but I had a whole lot of fun being gone! I did spend Saturday morning in the kitchen getting ready for
what should've been an epic Pizza and Movie Night at my fella's place with his friends and roommates.... I baked Irish Car Bomb cookies in addition to caramelizing onions and roasting butternut squash...
...for an awesome squash/onion/goat cheese/sage/maple syrup pizza that I assembled at his house.
However, as food-centered as my Saturday was, I didn't eat enough of it. This fact became significant later in the night when I drank mead on an almost-empty stomach...not a good idea, kids. Heed my advice: If thou shalt drink copious amounts of mead, thou shalt EAT beforehand. Oh, and especially don't follow it with beer. Ugggghhhh.
At least I had someone taking care of me.
Yeah, he cooks, too.
I think people had a good time...there was some awesome pizza-crafting going on! Hi, Lizzie!
We're doing it again soon but without the crazy booze. Whew. Have no fear - I'll blog the crap out of it when we do it again.
On Sunday, I went to a bridal expo with Lofton and some other bridesmaids; she's already married on paper, but they're having a big wedding later this year. Before hitting up the expo, we stopped at Cupcake, for better or worse, because bridal expo = cake samples.
Sugar overload + knee-high boots + too many bridezillas = grumpy tired Kat. By the way, I made her hat using this pattern, and I'm quite proud of it!
I was supposed to start my first day of work today, but this happened:
I almost made it to the interstate this morning before I got the call to stay home. I'm glad, too - it actually was pretty treacherous out there and my anti-lock breaks kicked in a couple of times. I won't lie, I was thankful for the snow day! I'll have to wake up
bright dark and early tomorrow before I find out if I have to go in; it was pretty crazy out there tonight, so I don't imagine I'll be able to get out of here in the morning!
Hopefully in the next day or two, I'm going to write a post about my job and how it's going to force me (in a good way!) to get back on track.
Did you get hit by this epic snowstorm where you live? Did you find that starting a new job helped or hurt your healthy living habits?
