Thanksgiving 06

Steve Own's This Place

We had a great trip and (like probably the rest of America) way too much food. We started our travel on Wednesday, but after an almost two hour trip to Tyson's Corner (normally it takes us about 10min) we aborted and went shopping instead. Thursday morning we got up early and made our second attempt with little to no problems. The whole drive was about 3 hours which is probably about 6 hours short of what it would have been if we continued on Wednesday. We made it with plenty of time for Turkey day so it was THE BEST decision. Friday we explored Manayunk (sorta like a G-town) and did some more shopping and eating. After that we picked up 3 "half-cooked" pies from Charlie’s off the Boulevard and proceeded to eat ourselves into another food coma. The good news is we still have about half a pie left so the fun doesn't have to stop yet!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving as well!

(And yes I will post the first set of our Major House Project soon.)

Halloween Antics

Breaking it down.

So for the first time in as long as I can remember I got away with not dressing up for Halloween. It was pretty nice not to have the stress of "What am I going to be this time" or have to worry about spending money on some outfit for just one night. As you can see from the pictures we had plenty of fun for Steve’s b-day on Friday night so there wasn’t really a reason (or perhaps I completely drained myself Friday) to go out Saturday. Although recently I had this great idea (as of in the last 3 seconds) that from now on I should just wear my Little Bo Peep costume for Halloween. I’d be consistent and over time people would come to appreciate it. Granted I couldn’t be in the “guess what I am this year” games, but hey I’d at least be wearing something which is better than I did this year.
