My Week in Pictures – Week 52

Happy Christmas Week!

Crappy picture, but we finally hung some of our art up on the walls in the dining room.

IMG_4384

Pizza Party for P and R! Sort of a last minute open house party, which was nice.

IMG_4385

Sibling and spouse dinner at the Munich Haus after a super secret surprise present mission. It was a great meal, and now it’s funny that P and R’s Western Mass wedding reception will be there during the summer!

IMG_4388

I’m usually too busy to bother making presents, but after I saw this fabric, I had to make Scott a pillowcase.

IMG_4389

Christmas cards!

IMG_4394

By the end of the season, the mantel was full of cards.

IMG_4393

Lots of presents, all of which we had to transport somewhere else…

IMG_4392

Christmas morning at my parents’ house! A and I got matching cookbooks.

IMG_4396

Oh I’m sorry, did you want this gift?

IMG_4399

Stopping at my ILs, I’m not sure what my FIL is smirking about!

IMG_4400

Driving up to our third stop of the day

IMG_4401

Christmas dinner, yum!

IMG_4403

Wine selfie!

IMG_4404

Behind the tree

IMG_4405

One last family dinner before P and R headed back to YVR. Yay for Christmas crackers!

IMG_4412

I’m happy to say we ALL enjoyed the paper crowns!

IMG_4419

I’m sure you’re not surprised that Dave photobombed all the shots before this one.

My Week in Pictures – Week 51

Hellllloooooo again! Yeah, yeah, I know, it’s been awhile. I totally lost my blogging mojo after that crazy winter. I’m not really looking forward to catching up on four months worth of posts. I guess that’s my own fault, right? Fair warning, I have a feeling they’re going to be short posts, I wasn’t really big on taking pictures for awhile. Anyways! Let’s finish up 2014, shall we?

Our Christmas tree!

IMG_4365

A festive manicure

IMG_4366

My work holiday party beverage of choice – a super boozy porter! Yum. I honestly can’t remember if I had one or two of these… in any case, I will spare you the pictures I took of the crazy shenanigans, in order to protect my innocent co-workers. :)

IMG_4368

Mmm, turkey meatball sandwiches. We love this recipe!

IMG_4373

Pierogi Day! A was in charge of the apple filling this year. He’s totally channeling Babci by peeling apples with a bread knife.

IMG_4375

Team Pinch!

IMG_4376

Team Butter and Boil (aka me! and Papa!)

IMG_4379

The aftereffects are… messy.

IMG_4381

Another present! This might have been my favorite wrapping job. Cutting up cards is the best way to create new gift tags.

IMG_4382

Knitting and owls? TOO CUTE.

My Week in Pictures – Week 50

Another 5K this week! This time it’s the Hot Chocolate Run, which is my favorite. I choose to do the fun run this year, which was the right choice, versus the walk (which I did last year) or the competitive run (ha!). Here we are, waiting for the race to start.

IMG_4348

High spirited band

IMG_4349

Chasing a Girl Scout cookie!

IMG_4350

By the time I was coming to the finish line, the competitive run had started. It was fun running against them for a bit.

IMG_4352

My reward!

IMG_4353

Bex and JMysz do a wonderful job DJing and MCing in the freezing cold!

IMG_4355

Later that day, Dave and I went to get our tree. Sadly, we had to miss our annual tree outing with Tracey and Nas due to a scheduling conflict.

IMG_4356

I love that Lilo greets me when I make my coffee at work in the morning!

IMG_4359

Onion rings for dayyysssssss!

IMG_4361

Getting a head start on wrapping presents!

IMG_4363

I couldn’t resist the woodland creatures, of course.

My Week in Pictures – Week 49

With Thanksgiving so late last year, the holidays were in full swing so quickly! I had an event at the Springfield Office, so I visited Kim and we visited the rotunda Christmas tree.

IMG_4333

We were excited!

IMG_4335

There was also a massive gingerbread house in the cafeteria.

IMG_4336

IMG_4337

Leaving work at dusk

IMG_4340

The Christmas tree at my worksite isn’t as impressive, but it did include giant polar bears.

IMG_4342

The other highlight of this week? Getting my pretty Thanksgiving sale yarn!

IMG_4345

IMG_4347

Hi, pretties!

My Week in Pictures – Week 48

Gosh, I’m still not into December? This is slow going! Remind me the next time I fall so far behind. :)

Doing my part of the sun-porch reno by painting the ceiling. Here’s the before:

IMG_4298

And the during! That’s just a blue clear cup, the paint is a more neutral white/off-white. And no after pictures yet, I still have another coat to do once it warms up.

IMG_4299

I couldn’t resist a warm cider donut at the famers’ market.

IMG_4301

Thanks Lynette for the bright pink coat! I love it!

IMG_4302

Oh fall. I would *kill* for 57 degrees right about now!

IMG_4304

Oh, this snowfall seems so quaint and pretty now that we’re into February and have multiple feet on the ground.

IMG_4308

I ran a 5K Thanksgiving morning! It was a slog (see snow above) but totally worth it.

IMG_4310

In a race first, I was dead last, for almost the entire race. It was fun having a police escort!

IMG_4313

We spent our Thanksgiving day at Dave’s aunt’s house, and it was super low-key. A small group with lots of food and board games.

IMG_4314

Tetris, anyone?

IMG_4315

Five desserts for five people. I approve.

IMG_4316

I told Angelica she was my spirit animal for having three pieces of pie.

IMG_4319

Breakfast of champions!

IMG_4320

Pub crawl – with random bag of candy! That’s how you do it.

IMG_4323

Thanksgiving number 2!

IMG_4327

Again, super low key…

IMG_4328

And more dessert!

IMG_4329

Now I really want some pie.

My Week in Pictures – Week 47

Exciting week! I went on a client visit for work. Don’t worry, I’ll spare you (most) of my photos from up in the sky.

A Lego model of the Mark Twain House at the airport. Love it!

IMG_4263

Yarn-bombing at the Philly airport

IMG_4264

It was a pretty gross travel day, thank goodness we weren’t delayed too long!

IMG_4265

One we got above the clouds though, it was gorgeous.

IMG_4274

It was a nice and relaxing flight, especially since I wasn’t sharing a row with anyone! Bliss!

IMG_4275

Sorry, one more air shot:

IMG_4279

Snow in Cleveland!

IMG_4282

I’m ready to present!

IMG_4289

And before we knew it, we were back at the airport. Such a whirlwind!

IMG_4291

My wonderful co-worker let me have his first-class seat for the first half of the flight!!! Of course, I had to take advantage.

IMG_4292

Hmmmm, hash. I love breakfast for dinner.

IMG_4293

Knit Night at B&N

IMG_4294

Dave found the best way to store his headphones

IMG_4295

I’m always sad to put away the skull.
