Friday Favorites ~ Favorites Lately

Linking up with: Andrea, Erika & Narci for
Friday Favorites ~ Favorites Lately
Ted & I had to go to UPenn last Wednesday for a little checkup (good things)
While out near Philly, we love to grab a bite to eat at two awesome places.
The first being Kermits Bake Shoppe, which is right in Philly.
Our friend from high school (who happened to be on The Next Great Baker with Buddy Valastro) opened the bakery and makes amazing things... He has since moved on to bigger and better things but we still LOVE to hit them up when in town...
One of our favorite things to get from Kermits is the pizza...
OMG the pizza.... It's beyond gourmet.
Behold: (We split 3 different slices so we could both try all 3)
Spicy Sausage Pepper & Onion -The Kerminator - General Tso's
Are you kidding me? General Tso's PIZZA!? It was delicious!
As were both of the others, but The Kerminator is my favorite.
The other favorite place to eat is ZinBurger - I've mentioned this before... it's amazing.
Best burger I've ever had. I mean......

Over the long weekend we watched the movie "Non-Stop" with Liam Neeson.

He is quite possibly one of my favorite actors.
His films are always so action packed and he always always plays a bad ass dude!
I was completely hesitant to watch this movie because any movie about planes going down or being hijacked is just NOT my cup of tea... I'm a fan of flying, but it also scares the bajeezus outta me #amenforxanax
This movie was SO GOOD though. It really kept you roped in throughout the entire thing. You kept thinking the "bad guy" was this one, no that one, no this one! It was good.
I highly recommend it.
Since I did my Mid-Month Confessions on Monday and my Show & Tell Tuesday of how I met my hubby - I didn't recap the weekend as much but my favorite part was spending our first Valentine's Day together as husband and wife at home, with take-out from our favorite restaurant....
....and my favorite Champagne 
Since I mentioned in my Mid-Month Confession, that I had had shingles, which was NOT at all my favorite and looked like a cling-on - I felt it only fair to share a picture... this was after I began taking the medicine, so the swelling was going down... It was bad... and hurt like a bi-otch.  
Still on the house hunt... Still waiting to sell our current house and STILL really wanting new construction... I passed by this yesterday. It's one of my favorites.
I look at the listing pretty much every day.
Where we are looking, since it is so close to waterfront, yard size and house size are a huge factor. You either get a big yard with a tiny beach bungalow house on it, or a new house where they tore down said bungalow on the large property and sub-divided to put two new ones.... Ted wants property, I want a new house - we're trying to find the happy medium :)
I guess it is a little close huh? :-(

But I mean... look at the inside.......
Beautiful Kitchen

Looooooooove all the space!!

I found this whilst digging for my shingles pic...
My Texas Manda & me sometime in 2007
She is my favorite... I just love her

I took this picture on Tuesday during the end of the snow storm. All the little birds came out to eat from the bird feeder and these two crazy girls were watching them plotting their escape and attack.
Neither of them ever set foot outside, but they can dream...
It's my favorite, because they are NEVER this close to each other.
I dream that they become BFF's and snuggle one day....

Lilly & Tessa

And this is my motto at work lately.... being so busy, I feel like just saying to everyone....
"I'm right on top of that Rose!"

Have a GREAT weekend!!!
