Hey bloggies-
Left New York once again this weekend to pop over to Philly…haven’t been in NYC for a weekend since the the weekend of June 17th!
Before catching my train to Philadelphia I met up with a friend at the Shake Shack for a drink. I opted for a glass of rose.


How cute are these glasses? Spot for your finger too! Almost wish I had saved mine (it was plastic).

Once in Philly I met Matt who is working at University of Pennsylvania for the month of July. We caught a late night showing of Happy Potter, which was fantastic!!
I slept in until 9:45 Saturday morning, which felt amazing, and then met back up with Matt for brunch at The Continental. When asked if we wanted to try the basket seats I pretty much jumped for the chance. I love unique decors and why not swing in between bites of food?

To start off they gave us pink lemonade water ice to sample:

I went with savory, Crab and Leek omelette with a coffee:


Matt went with sweet, the tiramisu waffles…I think that face says it all:
and a spicy bloody mary made with bacon infused vodka:

After brunch we walked around a bit, stopped by the Franklin Institute and down to Penn’s Landing.



Before biding Matt farewell we stopped by Eulogy Belgian Tavern for an afternoon beer. I had to show off their extensive selection of brews.

I went with the Delirium that was on tap:
and had a few of Matt’s mussels. The beer was delicious, the mussels were okay, the beer sauce was a bit too rich for me…I guess I prefer wine sauces?

I spent the rest of Saturday with my mom and sister, playing tennis, running and walking through the park.
Today is still somewhat up in the air, think I’ll work on a photo book at the moment and have a workout planned tonight once I get back to NYC, but as for the rest of the day…well only time will tell 🙂
Catch ya later,
Nicole
