Since moving to Philadelphia in July, I feel like I’ve been stuck in a constant state of motion. If I’m not working OT at work, I’m going to multiple doctors appointments, running around the city with my new roommate aka my sister, chasing my cat out the kitchen, off the table and out of my plants, or I’m going across town to spend time with my boyfriend. Either way, I’m doing something or going somewhere, so much so it seems like the only time I’m at a standstill is when I’m in the bathroom. That’s why for me shower time is dedicated “Me-Time”. A time when I don’t have to worry about answering emails, phone calls or meows from my greedy spoiled cat…Cat Mom Life! Continue reading “Me-Time With Neutrogena Rainbath Shower And Bath Gel…”
Hey Yinz Guys….ummmm yeah I know! It’s been like a good 4 months since I’ve posted on this here blog of mine, BUT I HAVE A GOOD EXCUSE AS OF WHY! I guess the title is a HUGE give away huh? So let’s just jump right into it shall we…well in July I moved to Philadelphia, I took over my sister’s previous roommates room, a month later I started my new career with GrubHub with their Business Operations Team and then my sister and I got our new cat, Rory.

Last week I was on vacation…and Lord knows it was needed. I spent most of my time in my second home Philly, a day in Jersey and then a few hours for what was my first trip to NYC!
I had an amazing time with my sister. As of lately it’s been ruff not having her around 24/7 so being able to spend a whole 7 days with her was greatly appreciated. We wanted to make it to DC as well, but we stayed in Jersey a lil longer then expected so we had to choose between DC or NYC…and NYC won!
While in Philly my sister took me to this great place called Frankford Hall that’s was located in Fishtown. It’s like you’re outside, but you’re inside too lol! They had A bunch of different beers there, I’m not a huge beer drinker but they had a beer called Franzisker Dunkel-Weisse that I thought was pretty good. Their burgers were big, juicy and delicious…so delicious that I forgot to take a picture of it lol! And they had carrot cake and German chocolate cupcakes as their specialty dessert that day. I got the German chocolate cupcake….it was like biting into a lil piece of chocolate heaven!
So then on Thursday, me Candace(sister) made our way to Jersey to see one of her best friends Lyndsie. It was my first time there and her house and neighborhood was beautiful! While in Jersey I got to enjoy my first Jacuzzi, and I must say when it comes time for me to buy a house I would defiantly be installing one of my own. It felt sooooooooooooooooo good!
So on Saturday I made my first visit to NYC, it was extremely short and sweet! My friend Rudy came and took me and my sister around to a few spots! We went to bar called Macondo and a pizza shop called Artichoke. The pizza there was amazing, not how like I normally like my pizza….but for a picky eater like me it was pretty damn good. Only bad think about the trip was that I didn’t take any pictures, I was to busy looking up and around at everything that I forgot to take pictures. Well I did get one picture of the Empire State building lol! I had a great time there and I def want to go back, but next time stay for like a week.
Last week made for a great vacation, but I’m excited to be back home. I def missed my Virginia =^_^=
A few weeks ago I visited what has become my second home for the past 5 years…Philadelphia Pa. I never thought that I would fall in love with a city as much as I have with the City of Brotherly Love. Growing up I never had any desire to really come visit Philly… it was always New York, Miami, LA and Greensboro, NC(parts of my dad’s side of the family live there…I LOVE IT THERE) were always my places of choice. But after my little sister got accepted to Temple University in 2005, I have found myself there at least every couple of months! She is now an official Temple Alumni, and her days in the city are now numbered. She will be moving soon, and that means my days of free room and board may be numbered as well 😦
Believe it or not, with the amount of time I have spent in Philly…I had yet to take an official tour of the city. One of the main attractions of Philly is the Liberty Bell, so while we we’re in Old City we decided to take a quick stop there before we went to Happy Hour!
After the Liberty Bell my sister, mother and I meet up with Martin who is my sisters best friend. With no real plan we just did some bar hopping and Krispy Kream donuts smashing…and when I say smashing…I MEAN SMASHING! MMMMMM DONUTS! *Homer Simpson voice* lol
So here’s just some of the pics from when I was in Philly!
