Weekend Review: The First Big Snow

The weekend was an eventful one, that's a fact. From the company holiday party on Friday, to Wonton Making Day on Saturday and getting snowed in at my parents house on Sunday

We had our holiday party at Rock Bottom Brewery in downtown Minneapolis. To be completely honest, I was not too excited about it. I was skeptical about the food and how the party would be. Rock Bottom proved me wrong. They did a fantastic job with the presentation and the food, and the servers were on top of everything.

When folks arrived, veggies and chips with salsa and guacamole were out. Lunch was a pasta buffet that they did a really good job at that came with a salad and garlic bread. After everyone ate, some people headed home while some stayed and played some pool.

Apparently, I'm an ok pool player. Thanks for all those 'lessons' Uncle Dave!

I was really excited about my holiday red and green outfit. I'm going to wear out these red pants SO  fast. But I'm pretty sure I'm Pulling. Them. Off.

Saturday I was up surprisingly early and headed over to mom and dad's to help prep for Wonton Making Day! Every year my mom has me and my sisters over along with one of my Aunts and her daughters and we make our Christmas wontons ahead of time so we just have to pop them in the oven on Christmas Eve. 

We all had a nice time cooking and chatting and laughing. Everyone left by midnight, but I like to crash at their house and play with Miley as much as possible. I was also very skeptical that we would actually get this snow storm we were warned about since it had been so mild lately. 

I woke up on Sunday to probably 4 inches of snow and it just kept falling all. Day. Long. When dad got home from the cabin he said he didn't want me on the road with all the spin outs and accidents so I just hunkered down and spent another day and night at mom and dads. 

Sometimes I think maybe I should just move home with how often I'm there...then I think about it some more and realize that's not a smart choice. I'll just visit.

We spent the day watching the snow fall, cuddling with dogs, and watched the Vikings beat Da Bears!

I'm pretty certain my parents would go without dinner most nights, but I can't so I made them Beef Stroganoff. I didn't think that I liked it, but this one was really good.

When all was said and done. The metro area got 15" of snow. 12" measured at my parents. That's more snow than we got all last winter combined!
