Hey Bloggy Friends! I hope you are having a fantastic Sunday. I know it's snowing on MONICA in Cleveland - but I hope the rest of you are having nice weather and sunshine like it is here in Philly!
I am excited because I am taking an overnight trip to NYC tonight!! My friend TREY is visiting with his boyfriend, Chris, from Ft. Myers, FL. They flew in yesterday and are staying for a few days. They invited me up to stay the evening with them and I jumped at the chance. One of my favorite things about Philly is the close proximity to NYC. I have never had a huge desire to live there - but I have always wanted to be familiar with it. So, this is part of my process in making that desire come true! I'm taking the Greyhound around 5 this evening. I'm not sure what we'll end up doing but I'm sure it will include a few friendly cocktails and a stroll around some neighborhood in the city. I'm sure I'll report back - hopefully with a little video!
We had a fun weekend. Alan and I decided to take another little road trip yesterday to Lancaster County, PA. We spent the afternoon in Reading antique shopping, wine tasting and browsing in a cute village called Stoudtburg. It is a village that is modeled after a town in Germany. It is super cute and I kind of felt like I escaped to Europe for the day. We finished the evening with a nice Mediterranean dinner on Penn Ave in Reading and headed home to watch some TV.
Unfortunately Alan doesn't get MLK day off tomorrow, since he works for a European corporation - so he will not be able to join me in New York. Looks like it's a girls night out! Ouch!
Enjoy my little video that sort of pertains to todays post. The last bit of video that I have of my brother and sisters visit is our drive back to Kentucky after their stay was complete. Needless to say, I was a little skeptical about packing all four of us into our small car for the 700 mile journey home. Besides a few little minor "claws coming out" moments, the trip was rather enjoyable and pain free.
See it for yourself below!
Have a great day and I will talk to you next week. It is a big week for me because I am starting school at Temple on Tuesday! My trip today will be a nice little last hoorah before I hit the books!
Love you all!
