I was trying to capture a picture of breath on this frigid morning!

There's not even a dozen people in the office today – anyone with school-aged children decided to take off and a few who use non-WMATA public transportation are working from home since buses aren't running.

This weekend was pretty good. Saturday I was able to get in a midday nap which was exactly what I needed to kick this cold. Saturday night we went to the Sweet 16, where I think Emerson had more fun than the birthday girl! She danced all night, chased after little boys, and had fun with glo-sticks. I wore a white sequined tank from Ann Taylor with my black Limited boyfriend blazer, dark jeans and the same shoes I am wearing today. Sunday, we went with my sister to get mattresses – we both bought LivingSocial deals a few months ago for a discount on a mattress but ended up getting a deal there that was even better. They are having buy one, get one free on Sertas; since my sister and I only live half a mile from one another we could do the deal, have both shipped to her house and then cart our new set home. We hope to Craigslist our current mattress set since it's only three years old and in like-new condition. After mattress shopping, we used another LivingSocial deal to go to dinner at The Sly Horse Tavern in Crofton, MD. It's a charming restaurant, and a nice place to have a family meal to do an early celebration of my sister's birthday and us finally getting around to acquiring comfortable beds. Last night of course I caught the Golden Globes – my faves were Laura Dern, Tilda Swinton, and Nicole Kidman (though I think her dress would have been more dramatic on a brunette).

And on an important note, while it's lovely to have a day off work or school (or a quiet day in the office), it's important to remember WHY you have such a day. Continue Dr. Martin Luther King's fight for justice, and use this day to volunteer in your community or do some act to make this world a better place.

    Love this simply black and white ensemble with the crimson lips!  I spent the weekend recovering from knee surgery and today was my first chance to catch up.  I am feeling better and can’t wait to see what you have in store for the rest of the week.

    Your lip color really pops against the black and white.  I love this look!  So chic.

    Gorgeous outfit, and we *can* see your breath! I, too, love those red lips on you. That’s a great skirt from CAbi too.

    Oh the grass is always greener… I wish it was thicker or curlier or straighter or would grow faster almost every morning! 🙂

    Love the red lips!  Who said horizontal stripes can’t be flattering?  Love this look.
