Monday Roundup: I'm Cold Edition.

It's been really freezing here this winter. All those polar vortexes and whatnot. But in addition to being really cold, here's what I've been up to.

My parents came to visit me at school, which is always nice because I get fooood. And it's nice to see them, of course. We had a great time at one of my favorite restaurants called Lena, where I had a seviche trio appetizer and a blue crab burrito. I also love their mod decor. 

I also had the opportunity to go to another restaurant, this time an asian fusion one. I opted for the bento box, and it was very good. I believe it had shrimp tempura, california rolls, seaweed salad, potato salad, and those ball things. That's not their real name. Obviously. 

I have been obsessed with watching Downton Abbey. I'm on season 4, but I'm also rewatching season 1 with someone who has never seen the show before. If you're at all into period dramas, I recommend it whole heartedly. 

And finally, I got these super cute Joan & David Quella pumps. I wasn't going to buy them because buying such high heels without trying them on is risky, but they literally have perfect reviews on Amazon. And the reviews were right. For their height (5 inches), these are very comfortable and I can definitely walk in them. Not a mile, but to the club and back at least. I bought them at I believe there are some left, but in a different color. 

How has your week been?
