Philly 2013 - part 4













MAY13MON We were suppose to wake up early but we ended up waking up around noon. We ate cupcakes and drank Fresca for breakfast. We walked to the Love Park and took pictures, did some shopping downtown and then walked to El Vez for lunch. We started with their original guacamole and the blood orange margarita - soooo good. I got the special (chicken burrito) and Elyssa got the tacos. Loved it. The restaurant has a photobooth so we took some fun pictures. After lunch we walked to the Magic Gardens. We took lots of pictures of the beautiful mosaics and then headed back downtown to get gelato at Capogiro (#1 ice cream in the world according to Nat Geo!!) I got the grapefruit and coconut and E got the mojito and some dark chocolate. So excited that I got to try the best ice cream in the world! It was really really good - less dense than typical gelato (it was almost like a frozen yogurt consistency). We headed back home and took a nap before I left for the airport. E dropped me off and then we said bye (for now!). Had a wonderful weekend exploring a new city with good people.

Philly 2013 - part 3

MAY12SUN We slept in and then got ready to go out for brunch at Green Eggs. While we were waiting for our table, we went to Brown Betty across the street where we got cookies and cupcakes. We (by "we" I mean "I") ate all the cookies before we got called for our seats. At Green Eggs, I got the veggie benedict with traditional potatoes (so good). After brunch, we went to Rita's (!!) and then drove around Philly trying to figure out what to do. We decided to go to the Italian Market but most places were closed. A+J needed to go get ready for their bus ride home so we headed back to Elyssa's apartment. At home, we tried our six cupcakes (lemon, chocolate, vanilla, sweet potato, pineapple & red velvet) - pineapple and vanilla were my fav. We said bye to A+J and then we got ready to take Cliff to the airport. We dropped him off and then me and Elyssa had leftovers for dinner and chatted about everything. After dinner, we watched the most recent episode of Grey's (Elyssa fell asleep) and then I watched Modern Family until I fell asleep.
