Friday Faves: I’m in Philly


Good morning Loves and Happy Friday.  As you read this I am in Philadelphia enjoying an extra long weekend.  I’m attending The SITS Girls Women Get Social conference and I’m extremely excited to meet up with all the lovely ladies from The SITS Girls community.

I have always wanted to go to Philadelphia and BF’s favorite NFL team is the Philadelphia Eagles so we’re both really excited to be in Philly this weekend.  If you have a favorite place to eat or visit in Philadelphia drop me a note on Twitter and let me know, I’m always looking for fun things to do.

Happy Friday and Happy Labor Day.  What are your plans this long weekend?  I am headed to Toronto to spend tomorrow afternoon at a family picnic and Sunday at the new Ripley’s Aquarium.  As you may have noticed I love nature, especially anything to do with water; so look forward to lots and lots of pictures to come.

Enjoy your long weekend.
