this weekend was spectaular. i’m pretty sleepy right now, so the post is going to go heavy on the photos and light on the words. :p i took the real camera with me today… side note: i bought a 35mm f/2.0 lens for my canon rebel two months ago, and i was pretty convinced something was wrong with the focus. i was going to send it away for an inspection. but now i’m pretty sure it’s all user-error… and i just can’t figure out what i’m doing wrong!! all the photos from today were taken with this lens…
saturday morning’s main event was a trip to target, which puts me in a great mood even if i find nothing exciting. it’s one of the most pleasant targets i’ve ever been to, i always have sweet chats with the cashiers, and there is a starbucks inside.
then i headed to the pool with mama and papa, chinese food, and a taste of a new [to me] breyers – dulce de leche. it was called “frozen dairy dessert”…? but had great stats, and was super creamy.
last night, a few friends and i went into philly to celebrate my birthday [you aren’t going to hear me complain about getting a ‘birthday month,’ haha]. for living 20 minutes from the city, i never visit… we had dinner at marathon [where i had actually eaten on my last trip into the city months ago, with fran], and then went to fishtown for a few drinks at kraftwork. we moved to an outside table, and it was a beautiful night. it was a really fun night.
EP and i followed up with a beach day today. :-) it was the first beach day of the season.
dunkin donuts trip! egg + cheese on an everything bagel. caramel iced coffees.
and then onto the beach.
with a break for pizza, and skee ball, of course. and some gelato [i had a mix of dark chocolate and “peanut butter and fluff”].
the drive home wasn’t insanely full of traffic, but it’s early in the season. :p i bought groceries, cleaned my dirty kitchen, had the best shower of my life, and then rounded out the day with some pierogies.
