Emmy made her way to Philadelphia and we left the city and headed for the beach.
Adam gets home from work before I do, so the day the cod arrived, I got a text from him that went like this:
Adam: What is this?
Me: THE COD, I THINK!!!! YAY!!!!!
Adam: Ummm, I thought you had a stalker…..
Well played Em!
When I got home, I quickly introduced Emmy to Mackenzy and Layla. Mack thought it was the greatest thing and wanted to make Emmy feel at home by making fishy faces.
But Layla….well she had a different opinion of Emmy.
That night we also took Emmy for a trip to Rita’s. Mackenzy even shared her gelati!
Emmy became an Eagles fan at our Fantasy Football draft this year. She even got to spend some time with City, Em and their girls!
Next up for Emmy was a trip to the mountains for Labor Day weekend! She got to meet some old friends while sitting by the lake.
Mack and my niece made sure she was well fed. Worms are delicious, yo!
The girls love making fishy faces.
And while Emmy became and Eagles fan on this visit, she also likes the Steelers!!!
We had a lot of fun with Emmy and Mack was sad to see her go, Layla not so much. Lol
After the mountains, Emmy went on a trip to the Jersey Shore with Citymom but I did see her again at the Philly GTG.
She came out for dinner and drinks, at Chickie’s and Pete’s, the first night a few of the ladies were in town.
We left her in the box for a while….opps!!!
But then we let her out and she ate some crab fries! Yummy!!!
After that night, she stayed in the room a lot. Such a party pooper! But she did get some Wawa and some alone time with Foxy Roxy.
Until her next adventure…..
After the beach Emmy was supposed to continue on to Philadelphia, but I codnapped her! I thought she might want to be around to help welcome another Bosh baby into the world, so I brought her back with me to the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
This is how Emmy arrived at my doorstep:
It is fitting since most New Jersians act like they are rough and tough on the outside but really we are all fragile and sensitive on the inside <3
Well, what is a jersey girl to do in late spring?
So Emmy wouldn’t feel left out, fish face!
Then we decided to take Emmy to the Pride of New Jersey.
ITS CAMDEN BITCHES!!!
See it is so welcoming and inviting
For starters, you can get a quality education
Or you can go to the aquarium, where Emmy felt at home:
I think she fell in love in a hopeless place.
Outside the aquarium there is a front row seat to the beautiful skyline of Philadelphia, which I caught Emmy staring at longingly:
It was then that we realized it was time for her to go and we got ready to ship Emmy off to her next destination in her journey.
So, we gave her a superhero sendoff.
Emmy came during a very busy time in life. We were just putting our house on the market and frantically cleaning and preparing for showings. Unfortunately, Emmy got the cold shoulder for awhile. However, this time toughened Emmy up and we both became part of the Fvck around gang. We tried to decide what our gang colors should be….I look better in blue she looks better in pink…what to do, what to do?
After we got done rapping Tupac lyrics, we got down to business! I work from home and could always use some help around “the office”. So, Emmy graciously offered to jump on some conference calls with me.
All work and no play makes Emmy a dull Cod. So, we headed outside with Addie and Jack for some playtime.
He was a little nervous being handled by such young hands; so, to ease his nerves, we packed up and headed to one of the greatest attractions, The King of Prussia Mall! The second largest mall in the country. Surprisingly, they didn’t have a Cod store. L Emmy had the sad; but, still enjoyed the shopping!
Being that I was already on the crap list for holding Emmy all to myself for so long, I had to pack her up and ship her off. She was a little nervous about heading to Jersey next; but, I assured her Angie wasn’t a GTL kinda gal and she’d have fun.
