Good Morning lovelies! My sincere apologies for my absence - and for my tardiness on writing about one of my favorite holidays! The past week and a half has gone by in a white blur of far too much snow.

We stayed at the Maryland Inn, which is part of the Historic Inns of Annapolis. It was perfect! The Inn only had about 40 or so rooms and made you feel like you were in 1773 still. The room had a fireplace and lace curtains and a red velvet covered bench at the end of the bed...it was all very romantic if I do say so myself. Mr.President did a great job selecting our hotel!
We spent the afternoon walking around the downtown area and playing tourists. It is a charming little town - perhaps even more charming if there were not 3 foot high mounds of dirty, black snow but I digress.
Unfortunately, due to the very old feel of the hotel there was no ice machine (or at least not one we could find!) so Mr.President improvised and found another way to chill the wine...
please note that is not in fact a wine bucket, but the trashcan from the bathroom...we used what we had!

Now since "we" are not planners - note "we" is just me trying to be nice to Mr.President..I am in fact 100% a planner....we did not make dinner reservations until Sunday morning. Not knowing the area we decided to go to opentable and just see what reservations were left for the night. We found 3 or 4 restaurants that looked good and then decided on an Italian restaurant...of course not knowing it was a chain restaurant. In fact, I am still not sure it is, but it certainly had a Cheesecake Factory feel to it - and don't get me wrong, I LOVE the CF. The food was delicious and my only complaints was that we were sitting so close to the other two tables that I felt like I was on a double date with the other couples. We could hear word for word their conversation and on Valentine's Day I do not think that is ideal for anyone involved.

Let it snow, Let it snow, LET IT SNOW...and there is still more to come! This weekend in DC boy did it snow! I think the grand total was around 7 or 8 inches...and it was the perfect snow - light, fluffy, powdery! I woke up around 7am on Saturday and couldn't sleep anymore - I would love to tell you that it was because I was just so excited for the looming snow storm, but I shudder to think it was more the result of one too many (or three too many) glasses of wine.It started snowing here around 9am and by about 10am I had successfully convinced Mr.President to bundle up in every warm piece of clothing we have and take a snowy walk to get breakfast.

Anyways, Mr.President is a fan of tuna fish so I being the fabulous (HA!) girlfriend I am I decided I would whip up a tuna casserole the other night. Sounds like a sweet gesture in theory - but it failed miserably. The above photo is the proof in the pudding (or tuna) that it was not good. It tasted like wall paper paste and salt mixed together.
Bless Mr.President's heart, he tried a few forkfuls before he politely said "Can I be honest without hurting your feelings....I don't want to eat this". I can't blame him, I wanted nothing to do with it either.
Tuna helper you are NOT in fact a helper at all, but instead a gross mix of sodium and putty. YUCK! No wonder it is so cheap at the grocery store. Avoid it at all costs!
