How was your weekend? I hope it was eggcellente and you’re ready to make this week a good one….or you’re already ready for next weekend. Either one is fine and completely understandable!
**If you’ve been pining for pictures of me, this is the post for you. Hold onto your hats.**
This weekend was really, really great! I may have an orgo test this Tuesday, but orgo schmorgo….who cares
The weekend basically started Thursday afternoon when we called it quits on studying and went to Jefferson night at a local bar. I ate an impressive amount of pizza and had some beer too :) On Friday morning, I felt surprisingly good considering the late bedtime (for me, grandma). We had class, which I paid 50% attention in (that’s HUGE for me on Friday morning…). And then Nicole and I went to a spinning class and sweat out the previous night’s toxins and then we had a guest ENT plastic surgeon talk to us about his life/careen and in a matter of an hour, had us all wanting his life (impressive run-on sentence, no?). Bueno bueno.
Friday afternoon, I took the train home during DAYLIGHT! I almost forgot what the world looked like during the day! After snuggling with Teddy for a few minutes: I camped out at the local co-op with coffee, my computer, and orgo and got some work done. If you’re from Elkins Park, the co-op is a good place to get work done! There is enough hustle and bustle that it’s not dead quiet, but it’s quiet enough. And they have coffee + wifi! Russy was there doing his work too! But he gets paid…and I just suffer. He spent his break with me…lucky lucky girl.
“Stop taking pictures of me”
Dinner on Friday was homemade Korean BBQ and sauteed bok choy. Sheesh, I was so happy to see green vegetables…it’s just been too long.
We watched Shark Tank and other Friday night TV before calling it a night at an hour that would warrants this face…
That picture turned into a bunch of memes that are too inappropriate for the internet…but had me cracking up. Also, that’s a five finger forehead if I’ve ever seen one! I should consider bangs…
Up bright and early for the gym and brunch! I love starting the day with a workout and brunch…one of my favorite things.
I took it easy at the gym because I still felt wrecked from Thursday’s kettlebell class. You are trying to kill me, Steve!!! I did 10 minutes on the bike + a 30 minute (3 mile) run outside! Yes, yes, yes you read that right! Outside! It was 45 degrees, so I ran outside…in shorts. Some concerned citizen stopped me mid-run to ask if I was okay. You mean, like, okay in the head??? Because probably not. My legs were completely numb. C’est la vie. Then 8 minute abs with dad + Russ. We all loved it. Haha.
Entonces, brunch at Johnny Tates. Or is Jimmy Tates? I don’t know but it was inexpensive and perfect. Bagel with egg, turkey bacon, and cheddar for me.
4 (shared) poached eggs + toast + hashbrowns for pop
And an omelette + hashbrowns for Russ.
I think it’s safe to say that mine was best.
After brunch, we dropped Russ off at work, stopped at the library so I could pick up more depressing reads (think plane crashes and being held captive in Tehran). Once we were home, I showered and got in bed “for a quick hour nap”.
I hit snooze 18 times and slept until almost 5:00. iisrug842091352454yu97&&#*(&$^#&!!!!
oOOOppps! I studied for all of 45 minutes, ate dinner with ma and pa and then got ready for a night out.
I went to Nicole’s around 8:30 and we went to Ollin’s around 10:30. The rest of the night FLEW by. We eventually ended up at Cuba Libre, but not after an hour-long trek around the city. By the end of the night, my Fitbit had reached 16,000 steps, and that’s not including gym time! What a workout, but really so much fun.
Getting up to study never goes as planned. Despite my good intentions, I wasn’t doing work until almost 4:30 pm. That brings us to right now. I’m planning on doing a bit more for a couple of hours, then dinner (homemade chicken-cheese steaks with sauteed peppers and onions) Then a trip to Trader Joe’s with my favorite dad and my favorite credit card (JK!)
Edited to add: we got to spin the Wheel of Joe!!! Highlight of my weekend, for sure.
Scenes from last weekend:
Last weekend was another really great weekend. I had trouble uploading pictures this week, but it seems to be working now so I wanted to share.
Russ and I were abandoned at home, so we made pizza and big salads together. The pizza was just okay, but the salads were phenomenal. I would share the salad pictures, but Russ was in charge of taking the photo. Let’s just say he has been fired from his food photography job.
Dim Sum in Chinatown with Russ’ and his family. This was a lot of fun and something I’ve never done before! Unfortunately, most things came with shrimp, pork, or shrimp AND pork. But the things I did get to eat were really good! And the whole shrimp/ pork thing was funny.
The SuperBowl a.k.a PUPPY Bowl! We went to the SuperBowl at our friend’s, Kevin and Brandyn’s house. Forget the actual game…I spent the entire night holding that adorable 8 week old puppy! And of course, eating and watching the commercials/ halftime show. I thought the show was really, really good! But haterz gon hate.
Have a great week, kids.
