Friday, we went out of town and ended up in Salt Lake sort of unexpectedly. [It's a long story.] I picked the place to eat, and though my brotherman a.k.a. my housband didn't really like it [he was expecting something much, much different], I thought it was charming.
Behold, the Beehive Tea Room:
I love the green and black checkered floors. So quirky! Reminds me of Amelie, always a plus. There were teacups, lanterns, and little nooks; it was the perfect amount of kitsch [in a good way] and quirk.
Since it was a little chilly out, I ordered this sweet hot chocolate. I get hot chocolate almost every time we go out when it's cold, and this was probably one of the best cups I've had in a very long time.
A detail shot on the way out.
Lastly, a building on the way back to our car:
It was a good weekend; I also took photos of my niece, but I'll have to save those for later. While I stayed in yesterday, it snowed and snowed [and snowed]. I had to dig my car out with a shovel under the foot of snow which buried it this morning.
This roof had no snow on it before Sunday night/yesterday:
It doesn't look like a lot, but it kind of is for this point in the year. But it's okay. Like I said, winter can't break me now. It's sunny out!
Plus, I stayed in yesterday and enjoyed [hopefully] one last snow day. I made cookies while I cleaned up our already deep-cleaned house [which we scrubbed Saturday], and I was cozy on the couch with word searches while my favorite candles burned. All in all, a really good day, and a nice start to the week.
Spring is coming soon. Mark my words.
