Hello fellow bloggers!
You thought I forgot about you didn't ya?
All's well and we snuck off to Philly for a little break from reality. Hubby's in-laws are from Philadelphia and we needed a break from Bambi, our closest neighbor. (Let me tell you, he LOVES shrubs!)
Anyskittle, I don't know what all the fuss is about the city. Personally I think it is overrated. Sorry no offense to anyone who resides in the city, but I prefer Bambi leaving me little 'treats' on my doorstep to someone drunk trying to get in my door!
But so far so good; surprisingly Philly has been good to us all. We came here Saturday night, and we are currently at my sister-in-laws house. The children are enjoying the sights, smells, and scenery that the city has to offer. But I believe, that if we stay any longer my children will want to permanently stay. To them, this is real living and they don't really want to leave. But alas, all good things MUST come to an end.
We plan to make it back home Friday which is just a six hour drive, and I will then give you all the scoop on everything that has happened thus far.
We have gone shopping to catch some of the after Christmas sales and got some really good bargains, but I grew tired after store # 16. We still had 184 more stores to go to. Franklin Mills mall has over I believe 200 stores and is one of the biggest malls in PA.
My daughters went to Macy's for the first time. They didn't buy anything as their budget won't allow it, so all they did was some window shopping and took some pics with some handsome mannequins. The real boys weren't around, so I guess they had to go for the next best thing!
Well, I gotta go and sight-see the city some more and catch up with the other half of relatives that I didn't meet. Hopefully, New Year's will be a blast!
It may not be NYC but it's close enough.
