best of both worlds

mr p and i have been on the go... NON... STOP.

for two people who truly enjoy sitting at home watching movies, playing video games, playing on the computer, and all other non-active activities, being busy all the time is getting tiring!!

i guess that's what happens when we have so many friends and family away from us...

last weekend was supposed to be our "free" weekend between going to DC and virginia, but when mr p's best friend says "come visit me, mike and dana are having a pool party" we couldn't pass it up!

luckily we are practically telepathic and decided that a date night in on friday and kick(butt)boxing must happen before going.

we headed out saturday afternoon for philly, and by the time we got in the pool, lemme tell you... we... were... READY! it was 105 degrees outside.  on days like that you feel like a bum if you are cooped up inside, but just sit in misery outside... unless you have a POOL!!

(pit stop at the local beer-wine-liquor megastore)

a pool with beer pong rafts, too? even better!

thanks, mike and dana for hosting :D

mr p has TOLD me he plays this game, but i didn't realize how INTENSE it was until then...

after a long night in the pool... we caught some Z's, woke up to play some fruit ninja on the xbox kinect (so awesome!), grabbed dim sum in philly's chinatown, discovered the awesomeness of five below , planned our future home in west elm , had our first shake shack experience IN PHILLY (wtf were we thinking?? why haven't we been to the one in NYC yet!?!?)  and explored the beautiful city (since it was only in the 90's and not over 100)

so... it was the best of both worlds:
date night in.
HARDCORE workout saturday morning.
visit to the beer store
saw AWESOME friends
who hosted an AWESOME pool party
ate dim sum
and many many more.

truly the best of both worlds :D

next up: virginia!!
hopefully the weekend will be even more relaxing with plans for a day at the beach in the works :D 

now... if i could only get through this monday! the thought of having tapas for ladies night tonight is making me lose my focus...

I'm so sad that we missed you guys! We were actually in Virginia on Saturday visiting my other half's baby niece and then Sunday was a mixture of cleaning and trying to survive a sinus/allergy headache. Maybe next time you guys can see the new place and we can introduce you to a few new places to eat in port richmond :)

I know it was unbelievably hot there but you still look like you had an amazing time (thank goodness for friends with pools, lol). The food photos are making my mouth water and I love all the shots of the city!

oh my goodness.
so much wonderful food all lumped together in one post. I can hardly stand it! (as I eat my salad and sandwich ... blah).

jenn @ beyond the stoop said...

don't worry... i eat salads and sammiches and all other foods that could be classified as rabbit food during the week so i can splurge on the weekends :P

I just stumbled on your blog and love this post. The food, friends, photos, all great. Now, most importantly, where do I get me one of those pool beer pong thingys?

I'm so obsessed with Shake Shack it's unreal. When I first moved here I swear I went every Saturday (I've tamed myself since then). Cheeseburgers are my favorite food and I have to say theirs are some of the best :)
