Today was the laziest of Sundays. Yesterday I drove down to the eastern shore in Maryland to visit one of my friends. He had a barbeque at his house on the bay and it was amazing to see old friends and make some new ones. Needless to say I indulged in some great beer, food, and fun. After leaving the bbq, my old college roommate and I went to her apartment in Annapolis and spent the rest of the night catching up on eachothers lives. We stayed up late laughing and ended up sleeping until 1:30 today. YES. ONE freaking THIRTY. How is this even possible? I don't know, but I slept like a rock and it felt great to sleep past 6 am for a change. We then proceeded to lay on the couch and watch three hours of "The World According to Paris". Yes, I am okay with admitting that show entertains me. I ended up back in Philly around 8 and I am certain I will sleep like a rock again tonight.
Must be hard for my friend to wake up to this every day!
The sunset over the Chesapeake:
Here's a couple more pictures I want to share just because they are pretty. I've been running a lot on Kelly Drive just because I find it easier to run with so many distractions and it's generally safer than the park. I live in such a beautiful city and although the adventurous side of me would love to live somewhere else one day, I really can't imagine loving a place as much as I love Philadelphia.
A shot of the sunset over the Schuylkill River:
And of course, the obligatory photo of the cutest nephew EVER. I feel so lucky that I get to spend every day with this kid and watch as he grows and changes:
As for the week ahead, it will be very busy. Watching Jimmy Rollins break the world record for longest batted ball on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway tomorrow. Tuesday I get to see Cliff Lee take on the Red Sox in a World Series preview. Wednesday I am going to happy hour with my bff to see DARREN DAULTON (woot!) broadcast his segment with 97.5. And of course the excitement of one of my absolute favorite holidays, Independence Day this weekend :)
Yay for friends. Yay for food and beer. And yay for being healthy to participate in celebrations of all kinds. Hope your week is as action packed as mine.
