Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Covered In White

Cold, chilly snowflaky white, that is. We've been watching it come down...and down...and down. "Be careful what you wish for," I've reminded myself -- just a few weeks earlier, I was hoping we'd get snow. Lots of it. Ahem.

Presidential food obsessions, from Barack Obama to Lincoln. (More prez food likes and dislikes here, if you're still going strong. A lot of these include drinks and food trivia.)

Yes, you too can make a tablecloth dress. Really. Potholes & Pantyhose has even included pattern pieces!  (Go here for more photos...)

A frugal buffet for twenty? Sure, if you're careful, and vary your ingredients. This one, via the Frugal Queen, sounds delicious. (Invite me over...please!)

Practical advice from a Hollywood personal trainer. 

What you would say to your younger self...what she said, from Say It, Rah-Shay

A studio apartment, five days and less than $300 -- and the result. Go here for the overall description, and here for the step-by-step process. Beautiful. 

And for those of us who are still surprised at the stupid things we're capable of:

Have a good week.
