Week in Photos: Week 48

It's amazing that the cats put up with me sometimes.

Peppermint chocolate chip... mmm! It's peppermint season!

Hmm... perhaps we shouldn't have let these burn for so long...

A picture perfect omelet! I've been using pre-roasted veggies to make easy quick omelets in the mornings.


We tried to take a family photo. We failed. At least we got breakfast together.

And we FaceTimed with our parents. And their dogs. From my brother's Buick.

We had a small Thanksgiving meal this year, just Shawn, his mum, and me.

Thanksgiving is over, now it's time for Christmas to make its way into EVERYTHING!

I made confetti cookies for a gingerbread house building workshop at work.

How adorable are those little peppermint candy cane sprinkles?!

Lloyd had to go to the vet this week for a dental exam. He hadn't been acting like himself for weeks, so we knew something was wrong... turns out he has mild gingivitis which gave him a gum infection. As soon as I pull…

Week in Photos: Week 47

My most favorite photo right now.

Muesli layers.

Perfectly wavy bacon strips.

I'm so jealous that he gets to hang out in bed with the cats every single morning when I'm leaving for work...

Messy cake balls. Not that kids care whether they look messy or not...

I wanted to eat this beautiful cheese plate, but it was for a catering order :(

It snowed in the kitchen! Just kidding.
I'm such a jerk for posting photos of food all the time but no recipes.

The cutest little quinoa salad cups.

I made turkey chili. And it was spicy. Like, super spicy.

Graffiti Bar in Philly, with two lovely lady friends/colleagues.

It was like a mojito and a moscow mule combined, and it was delicious.

We shared so many delicious plates. The fried spicy shrimp was the best!

Naked eclairs! Without their chocolate robes; how naughty!

I woke up with this guy on my chest.

Did someone say cat heaven?

Bought some friends a bonsai as a housewarming gift.

The most beautiful pizza. Do you like Hawaiian pizza?…

Quintessentially Me

coat: thrifted / scarf: LOFT / shirt: Gap / pants: Anthropologie / shoes: Seychelles

Do you have an item of clothing that feels quintessentially you? Something that screams your name when you see it because it's OMG-the most perfect _____, ever, no question about it, and when you wear it out you feel like anyone that sees you is getting an accurate representation of your true character? That's these pants for me. I bought them over five years ago, after coveting them online for months... (they were on my Pinterest wish list, back when Pinterest first started out...) and I finally stumbled upon one lonely pair on the clearance rack for a quarter of their original price. They were a size too big when I bought them, and I had every intention of getting them tailored... but I just never got around to it. Good thing, too, because now they fit me almost perfectly! I don't know whether I should be happy that they fit now, or if I should be upset... that they fit now. Either way,

The Cat Life - Lounging Around

Cats, cats, cats. Because.... cats.

Week in Photos: Week 46

This is what autumn looks like.

Our turkey taco game is on point.

Philadelphia at night is a whole different city.

Science After Hours at The Franklin Institute. Science, booze, and big kids.

I walked through a giant heart!

It wasn't a contest, but I won!

Never been this close to one of those before.

I had a little fun with my hair. Knots knots knots!

This is the view from the observatory at The Franklin Institute.

We're cat-sitting for some friends for a few days.

"Hey! You're not my human!"

I've been working a Sunday desk shift at a yoga studio in exchange for free classes! It's like nectar for my muscles.

Bought myself a new bracelet. I like it.

Couldn't resist the purple cauliflower at the farmer's market. That color!

Add a little egg and some cheese and you've got yourself an omelet.

My dad posted this on my wall and then I found this cat at TJ Maxx. So cute.
(That tea is super yummy but it slips through every strainer I have!)

Last weeke…
