Mifflin Ave

If you've ever seen NBC's "The Office" (American version), then the name Mifflin may sound familiar to you!  This is Mifflin Ave. in, where else, Scranton, PA!

Ahoy Matees!

Yes, that is a pirate carving a fish out of ice!  In the Poconos they have an ice carving display and this years theme was Caribbean Pirates.

Spring is in the air

The windows at Anthropology in Rittenhouse Square are ready for Spring (as are most Philadelphians!)!  I love this store and their window displays are always so pretty!

Snowboarding at Shawnee

This past weekend we went snowboarding in the Poconos at Shawnee Mt.  This is a picture of the "learning" slope aka "bunny" slope where I spent most of my time!  (technically not in Philadelphia, but very close!)

Rittenhouse Square in the winter

Turtle Power!

This one goes out to my sister, who had a Ninja Turtles birthday party when she turned 4!  Saw this guy in Rittenhouse Square the other day!  Heros on a half shell, turtle power! (if you dont know what I'm talking about- where were you in the 80's and early 90's??)

Snowy Trees

The snow in the trees is so beautiful! 

This will be the end of my "snow week."  Its kind of hard to find other things take pictures of when everything is blanketed and piled with snow but I will try!  Hope you enjoyed all my snow pictures!

I hope the snow plows come through soon!  Some streets are plowed but some still look like this!

This ones for the birds

You might need your reading glasses but if you peer into the bushes you can see the birds!  These birds are always here, rain, snow or shine (unlike the postman, ha!) and...sometimes they will fly out at you so be careful!

Snow Hair

The guy caught my eye while I was walking around the city.  I love how the snow stuck in certain places, giving him snow hair!

Mr. Snowman

Welcome to snow week!  You may not think snow is as exciting as I do, but since this is my first winter living somewhere that has snow, I am just loving taking photos of it!  I saw this snowman in a parking lot and he is HUGE!  I might try to make a snowman on my back deck later today, but it will be no where near this size!

I hope you enjoy my snow picutres!

Before and after: the 2010 storm

Before and after (actually during).   The top shot was taken at 8:30pm on Friday night, right after the storm started.  The bottom shot was taken at 8:30am on Saturday.  It got worse from there, but I couldn't figure out how to make 3 pictures look good in a collage!  This storm was the second worst in Philadelphia history!  Needless to say, I will be taking the train to work on Monday! (this isnt my car, but my car does have a big bubble of snow surrounding it)

views from the highway 2

Philadelphia!  Love this skyline!

views from the highway

This is Boathouse Row along the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia.  I love this area because each house is painted and designed slightly different from the others and at night they are all lit up with twinkle lights which is so pretty!  This shot was taken from the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) and of course I was not driving!!  (P.S.- its pronounced like skoo-kul, not school-kill) :-)

Car Show, take 2

This is my favorite picture I took at the car show!  This is a view you see coming down the elevator from the exotic car section to the Mercedes/Lexus area.  My husband really loves cars so I just took tons of pictures at the show & wanted to share them!

Philly Fiat

The Philly Fiat was featured at the Philadelphia car show!  I took lots of cool pictures at the car show so you may see another one or two coming up. (the car show goes through Feb 7)
