Fabulous Philly Weekend

Hi friends!

How was the holiday weekend for y'all? I hope it was full of all good things for everyone.

Our weekend was a great one, and much-needed.  Long story somewhat shorter...

I was already scheduled to go to a bachelorette party on Saturday night in Center City, Philadelphia.  Last weekend I mentioned in passing to Rob that it would have been nice to get a room in town together if things were different - not a good idea to leave his Dad alone, obviously, but a girl can dream. 

Before I knew it, Rob had spoken to his brother about taking their Dad for the weekend so we could get away! So we booked a room for Saturday night, and then spent the rest of the week looking forward to our getaway.

It was a wonderful and rejuvenating weekend, for sure.  It was great to be able to walk around without worrying about when we needed to get home.  We did a good deal of shopping, and HELLO 4th of July sales (there's nothing like buying cute new undies for very little cash thanks to killer sales - can I get an Amen, ladies?).

And can we discuss the greatness, the pure bliss, that is the Heavenly Shower at Westin hotels? If it were up to me I'd still be in there, pruning up and sighing with delight the whole time.  Not to mention the Heavenly Bed.  And yes, that is actually what they call the shower and the bed.  Deservedly so.

In closing, things I've learned about myself this weekend:

- I just can't "hang" anymore.  After dinner on Saturday, the music got way louder and the place got way more crowded.  I couldn't hear anything, I practically had to mow people down to get to the bathroom, my head started aching from the noise.  I can't believe I actually went out and experienced that all the time at one point in my life.  What was I thinking?

- Speaking of things I can't do anymore - drinking, eating and sleeping do NOT mix for me now.  To place this discovery in context: I used to go out til 2 or 3 in the morning, get a pizza with my roommate, eat a few slices and go to sleep.  On Saturday I had a total of 3 drinks, ate half an order of french fries, and was tossing and turning all night.  It was sorta depressing (and, let's face it, a real waste of a Heavenly Bed).

- It's okay for me to shop for flattering, attractive clothes.  There ARE outfits which don't look too bad on me.  Believe me, this is a long-standing issue which I will be delving into in the near future.

As I said, I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and that week will prove to be a great (and fast!) one.

You are too funny. Love the outfit. And so glad you had a getaway. Large crowds and loud noises make my head spin too. I think it's called getting old. haha.

So excited that you got to get away for awhile with your hubbs!

not being able to hang is just a sign of age. If I eat past 8 anymore and have alcohol, I'm up from 4 to 6 a.m. guaranteed. It sucks!!!!

Yeah, seriously, who am I kidding, I'm totally getting old. Rob went through the same thing I did with sleeping, too. I had to *gently* remind him that he's not in his 20's anymore. haha

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I want you to know I do have your comment just a-sitting there waiting to be published but Blogger hates me... as usual and is giving me errors this morning. I'll have it up there eventually.

Glad you had a fabulous weekend and let me tell you, I am the same way. I look around at clubs and think, "Who are all these morons and why am I here with them?" Give me a nice dinner out and I'm content.

I, myself, am on vacation with my crazy energizer bunny family this week. I haven't had much time in blogland, but I'll be back in full force next week.

Yep! It's age. The same way I can't sleep on just any surface anymore, I can't eat/ drink drink bad and expect to sleep. I have night sweats and toss and turn ALL NIGHT!

Love the top! I love drapey things! You look too cute. :)

p.s. Glad to see you looking and feeling well!

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
