If we’re going to be snowed in this weekend, we might as well queue up all the classics.

Funny how I live in that city & it’s 45 degrees here today! <3 u Meg Ryan.

I got sent home early since I work in a small town and it’s normally a 40 minute drive home (on practically empty highway). I hope everyone is getting home safely since the roads were terrible for me.

I am so jealous of all the snow the northeast will get. All my family and friends in NJ/NY are complaining about the big, bad snowstorm, but I’d give anything to trade places with them. Come on, DC! Let’s get at least one 5+ inch snowstorm before this winter expires. Please?

@eagerber I would love this too! (originally from Michigan, so <3 snow). Sadly I’m not sure it’s going to happen this year.

Reporting in from NYC: snow! I have baking supplies and Baileys for my hot chocolate, and the baking I’m doing called for heavy cream which means whipped cream on my hot chocolate and coffee for a little while, as long as I’m whiling to make it. I’m going to a brunch on Sunday, so I’m baking raspberry ricotta scones and chocolate brioche pretzels from the Smitten Kitchen cookbook to bring to brunch.

@RachelG8489 I 100% approve of all food activities described above.

@RachelG8489 Ooh that sounds amazing! I’m planning on making banana oatmeal muffins.

@OllyOlly I made the chocolate chip brioche pretzels last night, and they are amazing but kind of difficult without a stand mixer. The dough takes 35-40 minutes by hand. But I think they might be worth it. I made mini pretzels- like 2.5″ wide. And I ate one and I was like HOLY SHIT I MADE BRIOCHE. And it tasted like brioche!

And now I have whipped cream on my coffee today, and I’m going to make the scones this afternoon. I love snow days.

I have so much food and Netflix set aside for this weekend. Someone please check on me Monday morning to make sure that I haven’t slipped into a sugar coma while watching House of Cards.

@EvanDeSimone House of Cards is also a big part of my snowy weekend plan. I love a good scheme, or series of interconnected schemes.

I just signed up to participate in an organization that will be a pretty big financial/time commitment and I’m having such bad cold feet! But I’m also really excited. But I also wonder if I could have reaped these benefits, with a little more work, much more cheaply.

(My parents will be paying. But that actually makes me feel worse.)

Do you guys have horrible panic upon spending tons o’ money, even when it’s something you know you reasoned out very logically beforehand?

Also, the snow is so pretty right now! I love how much it quiets the city. But I’m going to hate it soon I’m sure.

@fake coffee snob Hah, the day I stop being emotional and start being rational about money is the day I’ve “made it” financially, IMO.

boston snow report: 2 feet everywhere with 5 foot drifts, travel ban still in effect, my car is completely buried, and my shovel is in my trunk. season 5 of OZ starting….. now

We’ve had two nice days here after the snow on Friday (yay for Ottawa, for once)… but I sure wish the Billfold posted on weekends so I could have something to do while procrastinating
