A Peek In Our Week

 
 
I was watching one of the morning shows last week and it showed the top ten cities in the U.S that had the best Christmas light displays and Philadelphia was one of those place.  So one day last week we went into the city and to Franklin Square to see what it was all about.  Macy's had a light show going on to so we stopped there to watch it as well. -L
 
 
We had a great dinner afterwards and I had this pumpkin martini! -L
 
  Most of my runs this week were done on the Treadmill but I did managed to do one run outside because I received my new procompression tights and wanted to try them out! (Nothing like a new piece of gear to give you motivation). -L

I finally finished wrapping all my Christmas gifts and finally watched one of my favorite Christmas movie, Elf. -L
 
 
I did 13 miles on the bike this week and attempted to do 10 miles running but had a little incident that only allowed me to do 5 instead! -M
 
 
We are getting new furniture delivered for Christmas so I decided that I wanted to paint my walls. Remember those Pink-ish walls I talked about earlier? Well I finally decided it was time.   While we were painting in the living room, we left the paint can with the excess paint in it in the Kitchen ( didn't want to risk spilling it on the carpet).  When I walked out to the kitchen to get more paint, I saw our Weimaraner had knocked the paint can over ( the lid wasn't on tight), and it was COVERED in paint. He was literally sitting in a pool of paint. He knocked over an almost full can.  Because he had it all over his paws, we had to wrap him in a bed sheet and Scott carried him upstairs and we gave him a bath.  Thank goodness for my mom and our house guest that was here because while we were bathing the dog, they were able to clean up all the paint off our kitchen floor.  I really wish that I had taken a picture of him covered in paint sitting on the kitchen floor but I think we were just all in shock and had to formulate a plan of how to get him out of there with out him dragging paint throughout the house. Oh what a weekend!  -M

  1. Sounds like your week was equally good and trying! My sister had a similar experience with her bull mastiff. She was less than thrilled! Oh well, think of the stories you will have to share about this Christmas season! :)

  2. Ohhh you have had a week! Its so tricky to paint with a large dog, when I painted my LR during thanksgiving we had to put up chairs and an end table and block our 80 lb german shepherd out until the paint dried. She was not a happy camper! lol But I couldn't take the risk of her nails moving the plastic covering the wood floors or her hair getting in the paint! LOL I admire your energy too, the only mileage I have been doing lately is in my car....Great post! Can't wait to see the finished room.

    1. I guess it was actually my own fault for containing the dog in the kitchen with the paint!

  4. Anytime I paint with Lola in the house I get super nervous! That looks like a very beautiful Christmas tree! I love outdoor lights at Christmastime.

  6. Lacey, we had similar weekends! I also went to dinner after walking through our holiday lights and had a pumpkin curry dish, while you had a pumpkin martini, ha ha! And Elf is my absolute favorite holiday movie.

    Meranda, what a crazy story with your dog and the paint! Good thinking to wrap him up in a sheet to get him upstairs into the tub. He has a guilty look on his face, ha ha!

  7. Oh, boy! There are times I'm very glad I don't have an animal! Hopefully you got it all cleaned up and the lost paint wasn't too expensive!

  11. Oh my! The things our dogs can get into!!! I would have been tempted to just sit down and make one of those Fabulous martinis!

  12. That martini was delicious. I'm sure I would never been able to make something like that at home. Although it would be cheaper. I need to try that.
