the weekend that was...

1. Afternoon stroll in Rittenhouse Square on Friday. I also perused LOVE Park but no Philly Jesus sighting.
2. Despite a 30+ minute late train and being crowded by a bunch of jackals standing in the aisles so they could rush out the door first, I was full of glee because Friday night held no plans. I read, picked up a bit around the house, and relaxed until MFD got home from the Neshaminy Soccer Alumni golf outing. We watched some OITNB and vegged.
3. Lori came over Saturday morning and we hit Bed, Bath, & Beyond and Marshalls. I got a few new towels and some fall stuff. It's crazy when you have to buy fall decor in August to make sure the good shit's not gone. Lori also brought me a sweet Christmas sign.
4. We picked up Trevose Pizza and visited Gamma and Pop. Look how much bigger Pop's pants are than they need to be.
Nobody puts Gamma in a corner
5. We took the dogs for a walk, and Geege got a lift on the way home. My Geege is getting old!
6. We hit Target and had a late lunch at Red Robin. Stephen & Aubrey came over and we ordered in.

7. Weekly food prep. Breakfasts - hard boiled eggs, banana, and raw green peppers. Lunches: PB&J on whole wheat or salad with veggies and tuna. Snacks: peaches, plums, cucumber slices, Chobani mango greek yogurt. Dinners: baked chicken/caprese salad/green salad/steamed veggies/pasta salad with veggies.

8. Sunday we were supposed to head to the shore early to get a day in at the beach but it was overcast and rainy. I did some purging, organizing, and hausfrauing. MFD did some work and the lawn, then we headed down the shore for the afternoon.
My hair makes me laugh sometimes.
9. Joseph A. Ferko String Band concert Sunday night in Wildwood. We made it home by 11:10. Holler.

  1. Sounds like a great weekend. I can't believe Fall shopping is a thing yet, I'm not ready!! That Christmas sign is too cute though. It is a good thing he is wearing suspenders or everyone would be getting a show. Poor Geege is tuckered out, I feel his struggle.

  2. You always do so much! My weekend was mostly video games with Significant, and laying around reading, but I liked it. When you say weekly food prep, is that meal planning, or do you actually prepare everything on the weekend?

  4. I am so excited that fall is around the corner...although it really doesn't mean much here. I'm fairly certain in was in the 90s all of last September. I need to get my butt to the beach as soon as I have a free weekend.

  5. I love that Christmas sign... I've had it pinned on Pinterest forever so that I can make my own. I'll have to venture out to find it in a store because that would be much easier!

  10. I cant believe its August and so many peps are preparing for fall. Ill be in the US in the fall and it seems so far away! Also do you prep your boiled eggs in advance? Do they stay good texture? Im curious, it sounds like a good idea. As usual your weekend sounds packed and fun!

  17. I didn't do shit really... again... only this time with kids. But still it was a good weekend. I need to get back on the food prep bandwagon. Somewhere along the summer I fell off. And Fall stuff.... I just don't feel ready, giving it another week!

  22. Few things make me more upset than fall things in August. Perhaps Christmas things in September does that.

    It sounds like you had a fabulous weekend. I managed to score a mild sunburn at the pool despite mounds of sunscreen. Sigh.

  23. Sounds like a great weekend!

    I haven't been to Wildwood in AGES... I keep wanting to hit up the beach, but the summer is getting away from us, and it's getting so COLD out. Grrr Arrrgg.

    Your dog looks so exhausted in your arms! Too much playing! ;)

  24. No Philly Jesus sighting for us either! I love your town so much!

  25. I love no plan nights...and your Pops pants being too big is so cute and reminds me of my grandpa's. Those suspenders work wonders! Looks like you had a fab weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That Christmas sign is so much fun!! i want one for my house...honestly though...I cringe at the thought of already having to think about the upcoming holiday season...I just want to savor these last few weeks of summer. And your Pops is presh!! :)

  27. Seriously, how do you always get so much done?! Another great weekend in the books!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can't even imagine shopping for fall in our 100 degree heat. I guess, to be fair, we don't really have a "fall."

    ReplyDelete
  29. I read The Vacationers too! I liked it, but I thought there would be more humor.

    ReplyDelete
  30. OMG I love your pop!!! LOL. I always love your weekend posts. Great variety for your food this weekend too!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Glad you made it to the shore after all. Also, those XXL pants made me chuckle!

  32. I just bought some yummy fall scented candles from Bath and Body Works... 2 for $22 - HOLLAAAA!
    Pops is so cute... I want to squeeze him!

  33. What a fabulous weekend you had!!!
    I haven't bought one single Fall item yet. I guess I'm just not ready to give up summer yet. I know I better be buying soon though or the shelves will be bear and I'll have to skip right on to Christmas!

  34. Another awesome email :) Oh snap I need to respond to your email - I'm very ADD, esp when work has me tied to a phone :) You're so religious with your food prep - I'm jelly! I have no coordination, patience, or consistency to do that! Have a great one Stephanie! -Iva

  35. Sounds like such a busy and fun weekend!! I am jealous of your Red Robin trip - I haven't been there in forever. I think that needs to change asap! :)
