today was soooo productive! i am pretty dang proud of myself—the two spare rooms are all the way unpacked. finally. after living here for five months… what?
as soon as we get the rooms furnished and decorated, i will show you what we’ve done with the place. i still owe you before and after renovation photos for the bathrooms and living room.. don’t worry, i haven’t forgotten. they just aren’t quite ready yet.
as you football fans may know, the packers played today. it was sure apparent around this house.
to the left of randy’s rump: a packers beanie.
to the right of penny’s rump: a packers hoodie.
on marshall’s bottom half: packers sweats.
on marshall’s head: a big ol’ piece of packers cheese.
what the crap is a packer, anyway?
marshall gets very into green bay games. i mean, just look at his game face!
what’s even better is his victory face.. right when they won which shoved them into the playoffs, or so i am told.
that shot made it for my photo of the day over on things i see
after the game, we headed
to philadelphia to my parents’ house for philly cheesesteak sandwiches.
peppers & onions~
my brother was the grill master!
he grilled up some chicken for me and my sister in law so we could make chicken phillies.
they make a couple of great short order cooks!
i know that your typical phillies use cheese whiz or american cheese (and i only know that from watching throwdown with bobby flay, so i could be wrong), but there is a spot in SLC called joni’s deli with the BEST cheesesteak sandwiches and this is how they do them.
i piled mine with peppers, onions, mushrooms, chicken and provolone. there was also mayo hiding under there. now, i am not claiming to know authenticity when it comes to cheesesteak sandwiches, but these were dang good.
sides were a big green salad and delicious roasted red potatoes.
not quite philly, but i’ll take it!
great dinner. thanks, mom!
no family dinner would be complete without a couple shots of these two handsome fellas—my two new nephews, greyson and ben.
they didn’t have phillies. they don’t have teeth.
we came home and watched shutter island. yikes. crazy flick! i really liked it.. it almost makes me want to read the book. almost. i will have to add it to the ever growing list of books i want to read but never make time for.
guess what? i don’t have to go back to work tomorrow! because i worked on new years eve, i have tomorrow off. i plan to hit the slopes.. cannot WAIT.
be back tomorrow night—enjoy your mondays!
1. have you ever been to philadelphia and had a real philly? one day i will get there!
2. are you a football fan? i am, by no means, a football fan.
