Snow Day and Cupcakes!

I was suddenly woken up this morning by a phone call from my boss at 7:30 am.  Now, usually phone calls from your boss at 7:30 am would be an unpleasant thing. But, not this morning.  This morning he was calling to tell me not to come in because we were having a SNOW DAY! How awesome is that. 

As you can see, Oliver wasn't too excited about the snow. 

I was so excited I could not get back to sleep.  Then I realized I didn't know what to do with myself. I was bored. Then I started making plans. All of a sudden, for an unexpected snow day, my day was beginning to get very busy! 

Before 9:00 am I had already walked the dog, cooked breakfast, cleaned my bathroom, finished the last 100 pages of The GIrl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest and have already started Coraline. Pretty impressive huh? 

The only actual thing I HAVE to do today is to pack.  Other than that, I am going to take full advantage of this one in a life time snow day and enjoy it! 

Although we knew a storm was coming and even talked about having a snow day today if it was bad, I still thought I would go about my normal routine last night.  Today we were supposed to have a party to celebrate four things.

1. My Birthday
2. Susie's 10 year at MAC II
3. Engagement and Weddings
4. Our new receptionist 

So, I did what I would normally do for a party. I baked cupcakes. And they are yummy! But, now that we have a snow day, I have 20 cupcakes.  This could be a problem. If someone doesn't come over and help me eat these cupcakes, I will eat them all.  I just can't control myself! 

Last year I did the same thing for my birthday. They were just as delicious! But, last year we didn't have a snow day so I got to share the yumminess. 

Now I am going to get ready to meet some friends for lunch. I am very excited because I can never meet my friends for lunch as they work on the west side in the 30's or by Union Square.  Then I will come home to pack. I might have to hit up the gym again depending on how many cupcakes I consume. I hope everyone has a great day, rest of the week, weekend and Valentine's Day! I know I sure will! I get to spend it with my family in much warmer weather! 

Happy Valentine's Day!
