Are You Kitten Me?
I wrote more of an introduction over there, so you should check it out, leave me a bazillion comments about how pretty the blog is, then add it to your google reader. Ok go!
Are You Kitten Me?
The past few weekends have been pretty normal and boring. This weekend was pretty much the opposite.
Friday night we did a holiday bike bar crawl with some of Eric’s friends.
There was a lot of this:
And a whole lot of this:
Which meant that I spent all day Saturday looking like this:
Moving along, Sunday morning we were up way too early and left Philadelphia at 6am so we could get to Eric’s cyclocross race, Limestone Cross at the Kiln, by 8am.
The season is winding down and despite the early wake up call and below freezing temperatures, I was excited to see Eric race again.
There were only about 40 guys in his field and Eric started towards the front, then moved in to the lead, and dominated the entire race.
See how NO ONE is around him?
He was all smiles crossing the finish line and snagging first place!
I had told him that if he didn’t podium he was riding home, so good thing he did.
And I am really happy and proud that all of his hard work this season paid off and he finished it on a high note.
After the race we stopped by Vegan Treats to celebrate.
Their cases were filled with Christmas themed desserts. We grabbed some donuts and a red velvet cake. Not a bad way to end the weekend.
I know I don’t have to explain myself, but I still feel like I should. Things have been kind of boring around here. Not in a bad way, it’s definitely been good, and we have settled into a nice routine. Unfortunately being busy with work and doing the same sort of things every weekend makes for boring photos.
We didn’t see each other much last week so Eric and I decided to go out to dinner Friday night. We went back on forth on a nice dinner or pizza, and of course pizza won! I don’t think I will ever grow tired of the Yukon Gold pizza at Blackbird. It’s like all my food dreams rolled into one.
Saturday morning we went back and forth on going out to brunch or cooking at home. Cooking pancakes at home won out. We always use the perfect pancakes recipe from Vegan Brunch, it never lets us down.
We spent a good part of Saturday seeing how far north we could walk from our neighborhood until it got too sketchy. Also known as, how far north can we go so that homes will be cheap and inexpensive but we won’t get killed.
We have 2 windows in our kitchen and during the afternoon there are two very bright patches that the cats take over. This happens every single day.
This might be my new favorite photo of Grissom. He looks so regal.
Grissom in the front, Kitta Marie in the back.
I headed out on Sunday to try to get some Christmas shopping done.
But all I bought were a pair of Hansel from Basel knee pad tights. Shopping Fail.
We stayed in Philly and spent yesterday cooking and eating.
The cats even got special food and were completely zoned out all day.
Eric did most of the cooking and I did a lot of uhhh…
We had a small piece of Texas.
And then it was time to eat.
We loaded out plates with green beans, brussel sprouts, roasted potatoes, mashed potatoes, seitan, tempeh, rolls, cornbread muffins, mac n cheese, dressing and kale.
Our overhead kitchen light went out so we had to move the table into the living room.
All in all it was an epic feast.
