the weekend that was

Friday was a dreary, you need a Brown Betty cupcake sort of day.
When I was getting that, I caught the Army / Navy pep rally in Liberty Place. 
I love that. 


After work I headed up to Pottstown for a weekend with cousin Gail. Friday night included:
festive sangria, Christmas Vacation, wrapping my remaining five gifts, pajamas, meatball sandwiches, corn dip, Elf, Tommy the cat, 
and lots of laughs with Gail, Aunt Carrie, Crystal, Sue & Rob.


We slept in until 9 since we were up until 2. It was lovely to sleep in.

We had a daunting agenda that we came up with at midnight the night before.
We knocked shit out, running a bunch of errands and hitting Target in the morning.
There was much mayhem, tomfoolery, and driving in the right hand lane along the way.

Aunt Carrie treated us to lunch at the Pub.
I had an awesome burger and a Bloody Mary. Okay three.


We had plans to get our photo taken with Santa, but the line was long.
This was the best we could do.
Ho ho HO.


I am unable to resist monogrammed items.


Sadly, Crystal had to head home to attend an Ugly Sweater party. 
She dropped Gail & me at Frankie & Johnnie's where we were joined by Aunt Carrie.
I love day drinking. 
The three Dr. Pepper shots were probably not the smartest thing to do. 
Regardless, we had a very fun day. I love these ladies.


Gail and I purchased matching pajamas at Target earlier that day.
We put them on when we got home like the drunken dorks we are. 


We decided wine would be a good way to end the night. It was not. 
Sunday morning was a total ouch.
We sought relief in a bag of Wawa treats. 
I did get my hangover helper, the pepperoni & provolone bagel, among other things.
Like this pickle.  A bagged pickle. It made me laugh.


My drive home was fraught with peril: rain, poor visibility, hydro planing, hangover. 


I couched it all day with my dogs. I didn't do a goddamn thing. It was awesome.


Sunday dinner: spinach feta turkey burgers, mac & cheese, corn.
The burgers were amazing. I doubled the recipe using ground chicken instead of turkey. 
I also added garlic powder and dried mustard. 
I prepped and MFD cooked. That sounds like a win to me.


The weekend in shoes. Check out my awesome sequinned slippers.


Am I the only person that can't read or hear the word nutcracker without laughing like a 
10 year old boy?
