I’m lovin’ Philly! What a cool, little city!
So, first things first, THE HOTEL!! As you know, I am a tad obsessed with all things hotels. I can’t help but take photos and blog about them. Maybe my next blog will be a hotel blog?!
We’re staying at the fancy-schmancy Hotel Palomar in Philadelphia. The hotel lobby is swanky, sophisticated, and modern.
My room is similarly funky and fun.
I LOVE the huge shower in the bathroom!
(Yep, I’m totally obsessed.)
After we checked in to the hotel, Sabrina, Jenna, Anne, and I headed to lunch at Di Bruno’s, an indoor farmers’ market and eatery. The place was basically a foodie’s paradise.
After wandering around for awhile, checking out all of the options, I finally decided on a Cheddar-Jalapeño Bagel.
And, on the side, I had some grilled veggies.
I also drank a can of grapefruit-flavored seltzer with lunch. I really enjoyed eating outside and chatting away with the girls.
Sabrina tricked me into drinking decaf iced coffee this morning, so, by afternoon, I was plagued with a serious caffeine-withdrawal headache. So, I took a pit-stop at the ING Direct Cafe for a caffeinated iced coffee with soy milk. Apparently, I have a caffeine “problem.”
Then, we strolled over to Rittenhouse Square, where we took some fun photos!
Our final destination of the afternoon was Phileo Yogurt for a blogger/reader meet-up.
I’m not sure what I was expecting at Phileo, but I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. It’s make-your-own fro-yo with toppings. Loved it!
I filled my bowl with Cake Batter, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, and Oreo Cookie-flavored fro-yo and then added peanut butter chips, cookie dough chunks, chocolate spinkles, and white chocolate chips. It was so delicious. I really wished I had filled my cup more!
A fabulous group of women came out for the meet-up this afternoon. I loved chatting with everyone!
Now, Jenna, Anne, and I are enjoying a glass of wine from the hotel’s happy hour while blogging. It’s not a bad way to end the afternoon!
Cocktail party and dinner next!
