What's got two thumbs and spent 31 hours in the city of brotherly love this weeknd?


That's right.

I headed to Philadelphia for the lovely wedding of my dear college roommate, Julie.


Landing at 5:30am does have one advantage: you have no choice but to adventure out into the city.

My pal Tania and I headed over to Reading Terminal Market, an amazing collection of lunch counters, farm stands and any kind of sweet you can imagine.

We scored the most delicious Amish breakfasts.

And spent some time wandering around all the deliciousness.

Tiny jams!


Pumpkin whoopie pies.  
I saved mine and it is sitting in the fridge awaitng my lunchtime consumption.

5 lbs of lollipop!

Beautiful chocolates.....

...and some strange ones, too.

It was a wonderful reunion weekend of sorts, but with only 8 hours of sleep in two days, I'm kinda paying for it now....

Stay tuned for further photos of my Philly adventures.

{ how was your weekend? }
