Hey guys! Highfive for FRIDAY!!!
I am going to share photos from our long weekend in Philly today. I would say we crammed a lot into the three and a half day trip. So we've got LOTS of pics from our first time away from the babe. I am so grateful to my parents for watching her and giving me the peace of mind and confidence to switch into total vacay mode.
First off, upon landing we discovered that K's luggage was in Dallas and would "hopefully" arrive within 24 hours. This put a little kink in our afternoon plans as we had to schedule in time to find something for him to wear to the Rehearsal that night. After checking into the hotel, we immediately hit the streets looking for lunch and shopping in Old City.
We had lunch at The Little Lion.
My sandwich was HUGE. Poor K got shafted again when they told us they forgot to put his order in...but it worked out as we ended up sharing this delicious short rib concoction.
Cute little Philly.
Ok y'all this is my biggest regret of the trip, possibly one of my biggest regrets EVER IN LIFE. After our lunch we stumbled upon a storefront called People Prints. It's a 3D Printing shop where you literally have yourself printed three dimensionally, sizes starting at 3 inches tall. WHY WHY WHY didn't we make this a priority to return??? I will forever feel like our china cabinet is missing a tiny statue of us.
This is a terrible window shot but you can still see some of the glorious composites.
There's Independence Hall. This was taken on our walk to Century 21.
Rooftop chillin'. The breeze up there was great.
The Bride!! Her dress for the rehearsal dinner was her mom's wedding gown. LOVED IT!
Later,On our ride back to the hotel we saw a crowded restaurant that we wanted to revisit, but upon further inspection was a BYOB and we felt like that would be a hassle. But, if you are in Philly, Radicchio Cafe looked awesome! Oh, and K's bag had arrived once we returned from the dinner. Phew!
I started the day bright and early with hair and makeup in the Penthouse Suite.
BTW, we stayed at the Hilton Penn's Landing, 5 stars!!
Our table was a lot of fun. Too much fun!
...which is why I'm not sharing after-party photos! ;)
The next day we had brunch at the Hotel and then hit the town.
I took K to Reading Terminal Market, which I fell in love with when I first visited.
Then we had THE MOST relaxing happy hour on the deck at our hotel.
After which we got cleaned up and walked to dinner at Panorama, upon the recommendation of our happy hour bartender. I said "give me pasta and give me wine"...
And they delivered. Look at this wine list, every single one is served by the glass!
We each ended up doing a wine flight. We were also delighted to learn it was Philly Restaurant Week and that we could choose three things from the existing menu for $35.
We ended the trip eating their delicious chocolate cake in our King Size hotel bed.
It was a wonderful weekend away and we came home feeling refreshed and ready to see our baby.
Congrats to Patrick and Abby and thanks, y'all, for such a fun celebration. We love you!
Have a great weekend!
