4 day weekend!

Gingerbread house at Sea Girt--and a warning!

So excited for my 4 day weekend. It started with a 3pm closing at work yesterday, a trip to Joanns with a gift card I got for Christmas, and the gym. I've been doing my cardio classes since Nov and last week I went back to toning. It's been great to do toning again so I can strengthen my back and my knees. I feel a lot of muscle soreness, but it's just that--soreness, not pain, which will go away as I get stronger. I'm still looking forward to the day when I don't feel any back pain at all.

Later I was pairing my patterns to my fabric which was a lot of fun. I'm still not sure yet what I will sew this weekend, but I have a lot of ideas. I even rescued an epic fail shirt last night, all by folding over the collar! But that will wait for another post. I want to do some reading and some house tidying this weekend.

My dad and I went for a walk on Sea Girt Boardwalk on 12/27. At first there was some sand on the boardwalk, but not too bad:

But in some sections the sand was really piled up and there was a path to get through it.

Here are the goof-off shots

I haven't looked outside yet but it snowed overnight!!! I can hear the snow plow. And I got email from my parents saying it snowed.
