Friday Night Playlist: The Anniversary Edition

Two years with this guy - how'd I get so lucky?

Two years with this guy – how’d I get so lucky?

Tonight, my husband and I celebrate two milestones: our two-year anniversary and our first date-night since the baby was born. Definitely a reason to party. And by party I mean a nice dinner at our favorite restaurant, The Pickled Heron – the Fishtown BYOB holds a dear place in our hearts not just for their impeccable French food but also because they hosted our rehearsal dinner – and a concert at Union Transfer.

The soundtrack for our evening is a compilation of romantic tracks, most of which are relevant to our relationship: “If I Ain’t Got You” is our wedding song; we’ve seen the Foo Fighters (multiple times), Amy Winehouse (R.I.P.), Arcade Fire (while pretty round and pregnant), and The Postal Service (In Paris – stealth brag); and “Tiny Dancer” was the last song played at our wedding – an epic ending to an equally incredible day.

Feel free to get romantic, too. Happy Friday!



Bonne Fête!

Yesterday, I ventured over to the Eastern State Penitentiary for their 19th annual Bastille Day celebration. Surrounded by fellow Francophiles, I beat the heat with ice cold Kronenbourg and hoped Marie Antoinette would throw a Butterscotch Krimpet my way.

Admittedly, the ice cold French beer that was a remedy yesterday isn’t so much today, so I’m nursing my hangover on “La Fête Nationale” with lots of water, coffee a fresh slice of homemade Quiche Lorraine, and a celebratory playlist.

Bastille Day

All that Kronenbourg seemed like a good idea yesterday.
