New Year, New Stuff!

Oh dear, how delinquent I have been in posting on Zahra Does. I should just change the section to “Zahra Does Stuff Rarely”. But hey, it might be March but it’s also a new year! And with a new year comes new resolutions and awesomely grand plans to improve, most of which are never realized. It’s expected!

2010 has brought great changes for us: we both got new jobs, I have finally gotten a KitchenAid stand mixer and a Le Creuset dutch oven, and, two years later, I gave in and we bought a wedding band for me. Official married lady status: ACHIEVED.

Since it’s almost spring (hello Norooz in less than a week!!), lemme just tell you that it was an insanely snowy winter. And you know what else? My Texas-made boots are USELESS in the snow. I found this out the hard way.


Zahra Nourani in the snow. It happened.

They soak the melted snow right in and freeze my toes.


We had the awesome chance of being at the Grand Canyon when it snowed too. It was super beautimous. I apologize for the hugeness of the photos, but I thought they were way too pretty-ful not to share!


But you know, the best part of the winter was that we had about 2 months of down-time to enjoy everything. So hey, there are benefits to unemployment!

Pretty pretty benefits.


If you ever get the chance, do go see the Grand Canyon during the winter. It’s spectacular.

And then go eat a whole lot of broccoli cheddar soup in a bread bowl. It’s the right thing to do.

Now that it’s almost spring, I will *try* my utmost to at least post regularly on the goings-on. Random, mundane, everyday goings-on. Doesn’t that sound riveting??


Here’s to the spring! Hope there are more pictures to document it than there were for the winter!
