We stopped for a treat at McDonald's today. Doesn't he look excited?? Ha! I had a chocolate milkshake and some french fries - a match created by the gods.

Gemma and Oscar gave me these earrings and a matching necklace for my birthday. They bought them at the Gaudi house when we were in Barcelona.

A cloudy and soon-to-be rainy day on Grand Canal Dock.

This is an amazing fishmonger right around the corner from our flat. We've lived here for a year and today's the first day we've bought anything from them. Oops. What you can't see in this picture is that it's freaking SNOWING! Ugh!!

Getting stuff together for the charity shop and the clothes bank. I love decluttering!

Here is Wes trying to rebook his flight to Lisbon. He got up at 4:30am and went all the way to the airport just to find out it was cancelled due to about 5 cm of snow. The flight was already sold out by the time he tried this, so no Lisbon for him!

Wes made BIG promises of burritos at this new place on Baggott Street. We had to stop by his office on the way there and this is the view from his top floor office. We were starving as we walked up to the burrito place and it was CLOSED! BOOO!!!!

After a crap selection of breakfast goods (i.e. bread and milk) in the house this morning, I made sure to rectify that for tomorrow's breakfast!

I bought these new kitchen towels at IKEA yesterday and I LOVE THEM!!!! Even Wes said, 'Oh, they're nice!' I washed them and hung one up today.

Headed to IKEA, sittin' in my favorite seat on the double decker bus!

We saw a robin in the park this morning. He was so cute!

I made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing today. Nom nom nom!

Another in my post box series (aka a boring day). The symbol on this one stands for 'Posts & Telegraphs' and is post-1949.

Wes called me around 8:30am to tell me there was smoke all over Capel Street. He thought it was a bomb, but I assured him that we probably would have heard it if that were the case. Turns out it was a fire at one of the head shops. I had to chuckle at the irony there, but I do feel bad for anyone involved. I took this around 1:30pm and they were still working on it.

I have started walking into work with Wes and came across this on my way home. It's part of the original Dublin city wall and gate ca 1240 AD.

Birthday package from my parents. AWESOME!!!! The BBQ chips are my favs! As you can see I couldn't wait to tuck in to the Combos before taking the picture. I have no willpower.

Someone was VERY happy that we were home!

This was in the bathroom at La Pedrera (Gaudi House). Does anyone know what it is?? Don't just say sink, because there was a normal sink in there.

Pig legs at the Boqueria Market. I was very bummed that Gemma and Oscar didn't have one of these hanging in their kitchen. I thought all Spanish people did this.

Happy birthday to me! In honor of my birthday, I'll post two pictures.What a wonderful day!

Boring day - impromptu salmon cakes for dinner. They weren't as good as they looked.

Not sure what is going on at The Church, but they certainly are trying to appeal to the masses!

I started this B complex vitamin the other day and holy crap it works! After a slow start this morning, I did 3 loads of laundry, washed the dishes from last night and this morning (thanks to Dublin City Council turning our water off around 8pm), vacuumed, changed the sheets, cleaned the bathroom, swept the kitchen floor, and started dinner. Nice!
