My Week in Pictures – Week 5

Colorful yarn!

It helps when it’s gray and snowy out.

Sunroof snow drifts from inside the car

Delicious food! I met Alissa, Susan, and Baby V (aka Chunky) at the CIA for a fancypants lunch. This octopus was amazing.

IMG_4503

My main fish course wasn’t too shabby, either.

IMG_4505

We totally splurged and got tableside ice cream! Here’s a fun video of the action:

And the mini cone!

IMG_4508

The dessert also came with this assortment of mini pastries for each of us! It was all delicious, of course.

Group shot!

I really enjoyed these lamps. What a fun touch!

IMG_4513

The area surrounding the school is gorgeous!

IMG_4515

IMG_4516

The drive home through the Hudson River Valley wasn’t too bad either. (It was freezing, so I didn’t get out of the car. I’m sorry for the blur!)

IMG_4518

When I got home, I had this loot from Pampered Chef waiting for me. I won it in a blog contest!

IMG_4521

Not too shabby!

My Week in Pictures – Week 3

Finally putting away the Christmas decorations

IMG_4464

Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?

IMG_4465

The downside of posting months later is trying to figure out what the heck we ate! This looks like some sort of avocado panzanella stacked salad.

IMG_4473

I’ll stopover any time

IMG_4475

Green soup! :)

IMG_4477

Another gorgeous sunrise

IMG_4478

Neil deGrasse Tyson! We went to go see him at Foxwoods, and it was totally worth the hassle.

IMG_4480

Even despite this –

IMG_4481

A’s birthday tart crust

IMG_4483

I’m pretty sure it was a Doria Greenspan recipe, but that doesn’t really help you, does it? Sorry!

My Week in Pictures – Week 2

I finished a pair of mitts in record time!

IMG_0030

Someone yarnbombed the T-Rex! I’m sad it wasn’t me, although I’m glad I didn’t have to knit a scarf that long.

IMG_4450

A has a new home

IMG_4451

Festive raccoon!

IMG_4452

I knit my mom a toe sock for her cast. Exciting!

IMG_4457

Cloudy sunrise

IMG_4458

Free breakfast at work!

IMG_4460

I did not know. But this is hilarious!

IMG_4461

Agent Perry hat! (And yes, I had to look up the character’s name.)

IMG_4462

I will gladly model any ridiculous hat made by one of my friends.

My Week in Pictures – Week 1

Happy New Year’s Week (in May)!

It’s egg o’clock!

IMG_4420

Mid-winter sunset

IMG_4422

Prepping the little sweater for steaking! So many ends.

IMG_4425

Textural frost

IMG_4426

Last sunset of 2014…

IMG_4428

New year, new project… and healthy snacks! ;)

IMG_4444

This must be SNL? Probably a JT marathon!

IMG_4446

First (sticking) snowfall!

IMG_4447

It’s so festive

IMG_4449

It’s currently 81F outside and I kind of miss snow. Sort of.

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.
