Happy Friday, lovelies! And happy first day of April! I'm so happy that the weekend has finally arrived. J & I are off on a little weekend getaway to Philadelphia. It's been years since I've been so I'm really excited to check it out again. It'll be nice to stroll the city and check out some new shops & restaurants. And we'll also be catching a hockey game on Sunday.

I have to be honest though, I'm most excited about the hotel. Gorgeous decor, luxury linens, breakfast in bed and nightcaps. Really, can anything beat that? All in all it makes for the perfect weekend escape.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Oh and if anyone has any suggestions of places to eat or any shops I should check out while in Philly I'd so appreciate it!

See you all Monday :) xoxo

Dawn said...

Good Morning Dawn, don't sweat it my friend, you sound busy this weekend and with such a short amount of time to do things I understand. Sorry the weather is not cooperating. At least it stopped snowing in Phila. A great place to eat is Amada!! It's in olde city and you could taxi it and be there in 10 minutes. They serve authentic Spanish Tapas and the atmosphere is just right but you will need reservations. If you decide to go...here is the number...215-625-2450. Address is 217 Chestnut St. in the historic part of town.. enjoy darling. Dawnxo

Ah have a wonderful weekend - I love Philly. I love the Chestnut Hill neighborhood - walking down the cobblestone street of Germantown Avenue is beautiful and there are fun little places to eat or grab coffee. I actually spent a lot of time sitting in the coffeeshop reading on that street - great atmosphere. I was also a rower in college, so I am partial to boat house row! Oh there is so much I could go on and on - you will have a great time!
Much love,
B
