It miraculously snowed on Christmas morning (in Dallas no less!) so my brother and I threw on our warmest gear and ventured out into the neighborhood.
Found this awesome site that turns your favorite quote into pre-calibrated and well designed works of typography 😀 Here’s one of my favorites from Dr. Greene on ‘ER’
I think I've played this at least seven times by now…so excited !!!

Looks like Terrence Malick has been busy from the south of France all the way to the grasslands of Oklahoma…
As I was going through my blog roll last night I found this epic and inspirational poem over on Fox & Toad.
Ingrid came to visit!!!
After picking her up from the Chelsea bus stop and waiting (in classic The Sandlot tone) FOREVER for the 34th street Uptown train, we made it back to my apartment and had some quesadillas. Yum!
Saturday we woke up relatively early, picked up some Starbucks and little cakes to go, and headed up to Ft. Tryon Park. The air was crisp and the sky a stunning blue.
Next, we had our eyes set on Bryant Park where we would meet Alissa and her friend Rachel for a nice two-hour adventure on the ice. We thought we saw Alan Cumming and after we pretended we were Michelle Kwan, we settled for lunch at Piccolo. I had the most delicious sandwhich and we all ended up having a nice cold glass bottle of Mexican Coke.
By this time Ingrid and I were quite worn out and so after having a small fright in Alissa’s office (11th floor elevator anyone?) we headed back to my apartment to take a nap – yes, a nap.
After our thirty minute “rest” we pulled on dresses, slipped on some flats, and took the A train to Brooklyn to see ABT’s The Nutcracker. I absolutely love The Waltz of the Snowflakes! And while I felt like Ratmansky could have done more with the choreography, the bright costumes and the added kitchen scene in the prelude were quite the visual treat!
Shake Shack was our saviour in the end and after spotting the stringed dinosaur shrubbery outside of The Natural History Museum, we headed back to my apartment once more and concluded the evening with my favorite ‘ER’ holiday episode, “Blizzard,” from season 1.
Morning came and we got to sleep in a little. Mass at St. Pat’s was at noon, and while I usually love a good homily, the priest’s comment about putting a black spider in his nativity scene at home kind of freaked us out. I mean I understood the message and all, but really? A black spider?
Anwho, we ended our weekend together at Rockefeller and outside in the cold drizzle waiting on her bus. We were sad to be departing each other’s company. But lucky for us, our trips to Dallas for the holiday isn’t too far away!
