TWTW - the one with the old school and the old fools

Friday night was gym, tanning, laundry. Minus the gym and tanning and plus frozen treats a la MFD. MFD: are you taking this picture to shame me? lolol and no.
Saturday morning I went to Lola's house, then I got my nails done and picked up a wallet to replace mine that was lost in the great purse water spill debacle of 2015. You see the ziploc bag there? That was my wallet for a while. hahahaha. I also cleaned the kitchen, read, and hung out with los perros.
Saturday night was our 20th high school reunion. MFD and I headed down to the city with Kim and Christy to meet up with friends for drinks at the Twisted Tail before we set sail on the Spirit of Philadelphia for the reunion. I had an absolute blast. While it's easy to see what many people are doing on facebook, actual face time is irreplaceable. We graduated with over 600 people and knowing everyone in school was impossible. I can't shit on facebook though as I actually know some people better now than I did then, which is awesome. So I spent Saturday night hanging out with my friends who are in my life regularly now, reconnected with some old friends, and made some new ones. MFD and I didn't get a picture together and barely saw each other all night. That's okay...we see each other a lot.
We unveiled our time capsule, which was quite popular. As you can see, MFD's sense of humor is the same.
MFD's note to himself says fart dart doodle, which is still said in our house to this day.
Philly looked good from the water.
We went back to the Twisted Tail after the boat docked, more fun ensued as well as a celebration of Melissa's birthday. My fun, beautiful, full of huge amounts of life friend. Happy happy.
Sunday I woke up not feeling too terrible, thank God (and a late night Wawa stop and water). Kim went to have lunch with her family and Christy headed home. For the first time in a very long time, I found myself with a day spread out before me with no plans. So I laid on the couch and read the rest of my book. It was glorious. Sometimes you need a do nothing day. I so rarely get the opportunity so I snatched it right up.
Otherwise I changed sheets, did some laundry, wrote some blogs, and made dinner. MFD headed down to the shore and Kim and I laid around on the couches like lazy old ladies. I was asleep before 9.

Weekly food prep sans photos because I only have a pic of oatmeal (who wants to see that? No one): this week's breakfasts are oatmeal. Lunches are spinach salads. Dinners are spaghetti & meatballs, honey dijon chicken with rice and steamed broccoli.

Tomorrow is the one year anniversary linkup of Show Us Your Books. Jana and I are doing two giveaways to celebrate the occasion - you don't have to link up to enter. See you then! 
I don't have today off. As a matter of fact, I have a day full of meetings. Pray for me.

  1. I have to work today too, no bueno. I love a do nothing day especially after a night of celebrating. Can't believe it's been 20 years for you already, mine will be next year. The time capsule sounds like a fun idea, our class was too big so it ws more a group effort. Glad you had a great time.

  4. Glad you got to feed Lola!!! Love that your baby blanket now keeps her warm! So happy you had a nice reunion and a no-plans Sunday!
    Glorious weather!
    Have a happy and easy week!

    Love, Your Momma

  5. What book did you finish?

    I think it's really neat that you and MFD went to the same school ("neat" for lack of a better word). My 10 year reunion was last year and there was no way I was going home for that. I'm assuming Scott's was too.

    I'm really glad I'm not the only one who gets the laundry started on a Friday night...

  7. My 10 year reunion is coming up...in about 1.5 years & it is stressing me out because I have absolutely no idea what to do & I'm planning it. I was stressing to my friend about it on the phone last night actually. Yours sounds like so much fun!

  8. Looks like such a fun reunion! Good for you for going, I didn't go to mine. If I were more active on FB I would probably connect with more people that I went to high school with. I can't get over your niece's full head of hair!! That smushy newborn phase is the sweetest.

  9. Oh my gosh looks like so much fun! Our reunion was so much fun. I'm also jealous you were able to get your nails done. A pedicure was on my wish list this weekend and I never found the time.

  10. Your high school reunion sounds awesome!!! I haven't gone to any of mine yet. I didn't start at that high school until mid-way through my sophomore year so I didn't exactly grow up with those people and hardly speak to any of them now. I love that both you and MFD are still connected to some of them and enjoy those events! That is awesome!!!

  11. Yay for more Lola lovins! And the reunion looked fun, and double yay for no hangover! <3

  12. i don't have today off either, but thank goodness no meetings lol.

    your high school reunion sounds so fun! i didn't have the best time in high school, plus i'm on the other side of the world, so i didn't / won't attend any reunions. it's funny though, the people i speak to now (on facebook) are the ones i didn't talk to in high school, and the ones i did talk to in high school i don't talk to on facebook. life is weird like that.

    do nothing days are my favourite :) i probably have more of them than most people, but i still relish them. on sunday, i thought i was going to have 6 hours of do nothing on my own time, and kc came home early with the kid he works with and i was really irritated. haha.

  13. I skipped my 20 year because well, quite frankly I spent 4 years itching to get away from those people and had no desire to shell out $500 to spend a night hanging out with them. Scott's is in November but I don't think we're going to that either because cheerleading ruins all Saturday night plans. I REALLY NEED to see who he went to high school with, though.

    Hooray for niece face time!!! Being an aunt is awesome.

  14. Your 20-year looked like a lot more than than my 10-yr! Awesome to connect with old friends and even make new ones though.

  15. My 25th is coming up in a few months & I dont think I'll go - I haven't gone to any past ones, why start now :)

    I am so jealous of a day with no plans... SOOO jealous!

  16. I cannot remember if we did a time capsule or not....but I only graduated in a class of 48 so I knew everyone anyhow. Actually 600 pretty much summed up my entire school. K-12 in fact. We all fit in one gym.

    The pugs are adorable as per usual and the pictures of your niece are going to make my ovaries explode so you know there is that.

  17. Did you and MFD graduate the same year? Sounds like a fun night with new and old friends. Philly looks gorgeous at night. That's perfect Sunday was free of plans so you got to relax up!

  19. Fart Dart Doodle... I like it.
    Do nothing days are always my favorite. We've had a lot going on lately so when I get another one I'm going to savor the shit out of it.

  20. I was so not into high school, sadly. It look like your 20th reunion was a blast, though!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That sounds like such a fun time! My 10 year just passed, it was a blast.. I hope the 20th is too. :) Everyone definitely needs that lazy day, I took a weekend or two.. I've been feeling like I'm coming down with something for two to three weeks now but nothing full blown yet so its annoying because I just want to sleep but not feeling sick all the way yet. Enjoy your week Steph! Take Care -Iva

  22. It looks and sounds like your reunion was a blast! I'm kinda dreading mine because the planners will make it lame. But I do agree with you about Facebook and old classmates. I'm definitely better friends with people I hardly knew back then because of social media. It's cool how that works. Confession: I've never had a Klondike Bar. Isn't it just like an ice cream bar without a stick?

  23. This sounds like such a blast!! 600 people is a huge graduating class! That's awesome that you still connect with so many on facebook!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sounds like it was a great weekend! I can't get over how big your class was. Mine was 127 people. I went to a small private school. That is so great that you keep in touch with your high school friends. I haven 't really since my life is very different than most of the people I went to high school with.

  25. That sounds like a good weekend, complete with fart dart doodling. MFD, I am judging you for not sharing that ice cream with me. You know how to fix this.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I wish we had done a time capsule that would have been fun to see.

    I agree you can't beat face time, Facebook has nothing on a good party.
