Ahhh, what lovely weekend I just had!
The fun started on Friday. I was meeting my friends for Happy Hour after work on U Street. I got off the Metro and briskly walked towards the bar, when I crossed the street and there standing by the curb was Anderson Cooper. I couldn’t believe my eyes! The Silver Fox was standing within arm’s reach from me. Who knows what my face looked like, but I saw him look down at his phone and smile, clearly knowing that I recognized him. I kept walking, continuing to look back, debating whether to go up, ask for a picture, and say something like “I ran into you at Inauguration, we have to stop meeting like this!” But I didn’t want to be that girl. So I went inside the bar, told my friends that he was standing outside, but by the time they came to the window, he was already gone. Apparently he got his hair cut at Bang Salon and was just waiting for his driver. Ahhh, happy day.
Here’s my pathetic shot of him when I saw him during Inauguration. He kept turning around every time I tried to take a photo of him! (Wow, I sound like annoying paparazzi.)
The rest of the weekend was wonderful also. Saturday I woke up to a rainy day, planning to take advantage of my roommate out of town. I made coffee, turned on a Christmas movie, and suddenly squealed when I saw the rain had turned to snow outside! Y’all, it was a Christmas Miracle. I spent the rest of the day decorating my tiny Christmas tree, wrapping presents, baking gingerbread, cooking stews, cleaning the apartment, and taking walks in the snow. There’s something so magical about the first snow of the winter–especially when it happens in December.

*I have enough food to last me for a long time, so I am to challenge myself not to buy any more groceries this month. I’ll be gone in two weeks so this food is more than enough to last me until then.
PS- I also added SNOW to the blog! Do you like or is it really annoying? If you have WordPress and want to add it, go to “Appearance” and click “Extras” and click “Snow falling on your blog.” :)
