[Sorry I fell behind in blogging this weekend / today. I’ve been crazy busy – but here’s a weekend recap for good measure ;)]
Having friends visit for the weekend always gives me a reason to explore Philadelphia (since we never seem to do so when it’s just Steve and I). Lucky for me, one of my best friends from Penn State came down to visit this past weekend!
Dan was pretty excited to have his picture show up on my blog 😉
Since I was having a rough week at work… I decided to take my rest day from any form of working out and make myself some mojitos. Win. When it came time to eat, the boys ordered themselves some pizza (with Mogli’s help of course)…
and I heated up some left-over tofu fajitas. I realize I am subjecting myself to ridicule by posting this – just as much ridicule as I got while actually eating this. Pssh haters – my fajitas were bad-ass.
And just because I didn’t do any formal kind of work-out doesn’t mean I didn’t work up a sweat playing PS3 Sports Champions! haha Seriously, it’s awesome. If you have PS3, get the ‘Move’ package – and then play Bocce and tell me you’re not addicted. Steve prefers Gladiator Duel – but to each his own, eh?
Since I took my rest day Friday – I decided that I needed to drag my lazy self out the door for a run before I went out for the day. There was probably 537% humidity outside, but it wasn’t terrible. I set out to do 4 miles – and then I passed an animal rescue fair that was taking place in a field by the sidewalk I run along. I think it’s safe to say I stopped… and then dragged Steve and Dan back to the fair after I was done and showered.
- 4 miles in 34:30 (8:37 min/mile)
Tell me that isn’t the cutest thing you’ve ever seen!? Bah. I think my new career option is just volunteering full-time at an animal shelter.After my detour at the animal rescue fair, we made our way into the City of Brother Love!
After some amazing treats at the Reading Terminal Market (including a vegan chocolate cupcake!), we ventured off to find the Mutter Museum. Their tagline is “Disturbingly Interesting” and they weren’t messing around. I wasn’t allowed to take pictures inside – but imagine a wall full of skulls, a 40lb colon, the skeleton of a giant (7’8″) next to the skeleton of a midget prostitute… and some other insane medical anomalies. If you ever find yourself wandering around Philadelphia and want to see some really effed up medical stuff, you should definitely visit the Mutter Museum.
