Well, the storm didn't turn out to be as bad as expected. I am working from home today but woke up the same time as usual and decided to go for a walk before the snow is covered in dirt and dog pee. So, not much snow but it's super cold out there.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

I've been wanting to go to the R&R hall of fame ever since my sister and her family moved to Ohio. And last weekend we went. Half of Ohio had the same idea-- maybe because it was a holiday and maybe because it was free.
Out in front:

Springsteen's notebook with the words to Born to Run 

Michael Jackson's glove and an outfit. 

Beatles display 

Jim Morrison's Cub Scout uniform, right next to a letter about his probation. 

A fun day!

I got to babysit my little niece last weekend while my sister and brother in law went to the Jersey shore.
We had a good time.  She's the cutest thing and has a fun personality. But it's hard to get a good picture of her sometimes.

Driving in Idaho

We went for a drive one day and ended up someplace that KB called the W.  We didn't go over the W (I think that's the terminology) because of the snow. This was the point where we gave up and turned around.

Cupcakes Idaho style

I made KB take me to the one cupcake place I could find in town.  It's called the Cocoa Bean. 
They were pretty good. But NO vanilla/vanilla or plain chocolate, which I think is weird. 

This is the raspberry lemonade. It had a pretty weird consistency-- super moist-- like it was actually soaked in lemonade. But it was yummy. 

This is the chocolate malted. The frosting was amazing. 

They also had one called "better than whatever," which is how you know you're in Idaho.
