Valentine’s Day Celebrations!

With this weekend being Valentine’s Day, I decided to write an entry on what my boyfriend and I did for it.

Friday:
– Fridays during lent means pizza for dinner! We had takeout from this great little place called Pete’s Famous Pizza. Everything on the menu looks fantastic, but you really have to try the vegetable pizza. So good. Plus, since it has so many vegetables on it, nobody will feel bad for eating pizza. Win!
-We also used this day as our card/gift exchange. We’ve both had a lot of expenses come up in the best few weeks, so we only did little things for each other. I like this better in a way because you really have to put some thought into the gift to ensure that it’s nice.
-That night, we cuddled up in bed and watch a nice romantic movie, Clerks.
All in all, rated a 5/5. 

Saturday:
– First stop, the Mutter Museum! I know, it can be creepy to go to a museum dedicated to medical oddities, but it was so much fun! We walked around learning about advances in medical technology and knowledge, looking at skulls to adopt, and looking at intestines in jars.
-We worked up a bit of an appetite looking at gross things, so we walked towards Go Popcorn to pick up two bags. First of all, the inside of this place is adorable. There’s an old popcorn cart against a wall, the workers’ are dressed in an old-timey style, and the menu is in old fashioned print. I highly recommend going with another person so you can try their flavor.

-For dinner, we had reservations at Me N Mo, a cute BYO restaurant on South Street. This place is known for their meatballs, and there’s no doubt why, they were delicious! They offered a sampler option, so M and I each chose two to try: Classic (beef, veal, and pork) with a la vodka sauce, Beef with marinara sauce, Vegetable (chickpeas, lentils, mushrooms, celery, and carrots in a creamy mushroom sauce, and Spicy Pork with a spicy meat sauce. All absolutely to die for. Before we even finished eating them, we were talking about getting meatball sandwiches from there later on; that’s how good they were. We each got our dinners, which included homemade pasta, and enjoyed indulging in some nice Italian food. Nothing more romantic than that! Except one thing. Except being the cutest (aka only) couple in the restaurant and getting a complimentary slice of limoncello cake! It was SO tasty and so thoughtful of our server to do that for us.

How cute is this place? Over on the left was the bar and behind all of the tables were old machines used to make pasta!

-After dinner, we indulged and watched another masterpiece movie- Sharknado.
All in all, rated a 5/5.

Sunday:
-Since we were a bit tired from our weekend adventures, we decided to take it easy this morning and make pancakes from scratch! I know, I know, we’re little shitty overachievers, but what can I say besides yes, yes we are. The pancakes were so good. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take a photo because I was unable to take the fork away from my mouth.
-UPDATE: Lunch is minestrone soup made from scratch. How good does this look?

M is such a good cook! 

So, that’s how our weekend went. How was everybody else’s? Did anybody else get free cake? Has everybody survived the icy chill?

    1. It really is! I would say it’s a tie between the soap lady and the wall of skulls.

      The soap lady is a well-preserved body of a woman who, due to various chemical reactions, has been preserved because her body has literally turned to soap.
      The wall of skulls was a huge exhibit that had as much information about each person the skull belonged to, including the region found in, age, and cause of death. These skulls can be “adopted” as well.

      1. You pay a certain fee in order to metaphorically adopt the skull. That money is used to preserve the skull or for general repairs. A little card is posted next to the skull that has the information about the person who adopted it, so everybody who visits can see who owns it.
