national donut day

Thank you Instagram, once again, for filling me in on yet another important National Holiday.

In case you didn't know, today is:
National Donut Day.
I mean…any opportunity to justify a donut trip...

So...Happy National Donut Day to you & yours.
Have an extra one for me, I'm full. 
{Instagram…I owe ya one.} 

*Federal Donuts has multiple locations throughout Philly. If you're local {or not} and you visit, I highly recommend the ricotta lemon & the strawberry lavender. Go get one!

one more reason to love where we live

Reason # umpteen,trillion,million as to why we love our town…
{drum roll please}

The Patco speed line.

We can see it from our back yard.
Hear it while we go to sleep.
And ride it into the city any time we please!
I mean c'mon. 
Little boy daydreams are basically made of this. 

Side story: I wish I had a recording of the conversation they were having up there in the front seat. We were in the last car, which happens to be the first car when you're going the other direction. So...there's a conductors seat right next to where the boys are sitting, and it was empty. Thing 2 was freaking out the ENTIRE ride, convinced no one was driving the train and we were never going to get home. Thing 3 & 4 were trying to explain to him why no one was sitting there, only they didn't really know, so their reasoning was completely incorrect, though creative…you had to be there, but it was hilarious, the whole car was cracking up.

Sometimes you and a girlfriend talk about how nice it would be to sneak away for a night in the city, and then your hubbies tell you to go for it.
So you do. 
And we did. 
And it was fabulous. 

We shopped in Rittenhouse Square, got tattoos on South Street, dressed up for a fancy dinner at  Talula's {ummm, can you say ah-mazing?! If you haven't yet, you must go to one of their secret suppers…again, it was ah-mazing.}, watched the broad street run from our hotel room, brunched at Parc, and made plans for next years overnight getaway. 

I clearly value girly time. 
{I mean how obnoxious in your face have I been over the years with all my "girly events"}
And I highly recommend it to everyone.
{and it doesn't have to be a fancy over nighter…simple is beautiful…and way cheaper.}
Just do it. 

*I was not paid to endorse the above mentioned dining establishments in any way. I just really, truly love eating there and think you should too. 
*I was not asked by Nike to end my post with their trademark catchphrase. That was all my idea.
