TWTW - the one with the snow

One of my favorite events of the year is the Army/Navy Pep Rally in Liberty Place right next to my office. The place is packed and there's a lot of good energy. Video here.
Friday night was a soup and grilled cheese, fall asleep on the couch before 10 kind of night.

Saturday 
I did some food prep, hung with the dogs, painted my nails (Zoya Pandora, ho hum neutral), and laughed at Bruce experiencing snow for the first time. He was mystified and also tearing ass all over the yard.
Debbie and I went on guided street art walking tour in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philly with Conrad from Streets Dept blog. Tours are over for the winter, but if you like public art, check back with him in the spring! I love street art, and we both really enjoyed it. It was a beautiful winter wonderland but walking around in wet snow for two hours was fucking cold. I shared some more of the art on Instagram in this post and this post.
The drive back to the northeast was mildly treacherous so I was happy to get home. MFD was Clark Griswolding it up, baking peanut butter cookies, listening to Christmas music, and photographing his outdoor Christmas shit in the snow. ho ho ho. I made stuffed pepper soup and we watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2. I read Wonder starting in the morning and finishing at night. 
Sunday
After throwing beef stew in the crockpot, which involved searing the meat, I jetted over to get a himalayan pink salt massage, smelling of stew. Charming. Otherwise I read a book, ran the dishwasher and cleaned up the kitchen, did the laundry, and hung with the dogs. I'd like to tell you I cleaned out my health and beauty aids, cleaned up the shit from the shore that had taken residence on the spare room bed, and changed the bedding in there, which I've been meaning to do for 407 months now but alas I read a book from start to finish and did none of that shit. We did watch Superbad and I ordered the light fixtures for electrical work we're getting done at the shore in January. Merry Christmas, shore house!

Weekly food prep
Breakfast is kodiak waffles with syrup; snacks are hard boiled eggs and honey crisp apples; lunch is stuffed pepper soup; dinner is beef stew over egg noodles and turkey thighs with mashed sweet potatoes and snap peas. 





Happy birthday to my dear long-time friend Meem today!

Two weeks from today, it'll be Christmas. Tomorrow, it'll be Show Us Your Books.

See you back here for that!

  12. We watched the Army Navy game as well. I agree with one of the other comments I really miss Philly when I read your posts. We had snow and also helped my inlaws move. Most of the weekend was spent recharging though. What did you think of Wonder? I read it when I worked at an after school program. It led to a ton of great discussions.

  13. I bet it was fun and funny watching Bruce acclimate himself to snow. He looks so adorable cuddled up. I hope Mae is still loving on him. We don't have snow but the cold weather has hit and I would love some beef stew right now! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  14. I read Wonder in one day as well. Is that Kodiak pancake mix that you used? I keep meaning to buy more because I liked it the first time I tried it.
    Dogs in snow are too cute and funny.

  16. Yay for light fixtures for the shore house!! That's fun! I just got asked to be on the Penn advisory board. The first meeting is in January and all I could think was "damn, it's going to be cold and snowy af." These pictures do not convince me otherwise. I'll need to bundle up like Bruce. LOL
