B&B Friday! (2/26/10)

Welp, my area had yet another snow day today!
I would be happier having school off if it wasn't supposed to be
my first day working at the University Library,
and the fact that they're probably going to take a day out of our Spring break now... :( Blah.
But I made the best of it and baked some yummy chocolate chip cookies,
and am now baking some Grandma's Spaghetti for dinner (family recipe♥)
... So, clearly, I'm not suffering too much :p

On to this week's B&B's!:

  2. It is very hard to make a decision between these. I suppose I'll go with the Marblehead one, but it is certainly a close call.
