Saturday - flight left at 10:25 a.m.
Arrived in Philly around 1:00 p.m. and took a cab drive to our hotel - I was in heaven - 100 MPH on the highway is MY style:) We hit up the lobby bar and had some grub, and this was then followed by some much needed "Pawn Stars", "Storage Wars", "Gypsy Wedding".
Sunday we got ourselves up (I hit the gym for a 5 miler, squats, planks, and some shoulder routines) and off to Macy's we went - we shopped our tails off - I bought new black leather booties. Some of you may have seen the new blue skirt and top I bought on instagram. We visited the Reading Terminal, had lunch and then back to the hotel to get ready for the Meet and Greet.
The night then proceeded to a a few "other" places in Philly. I may/may not have stumbled in and hit up the market for a GIANT SIZE Kit Kat bar
Monday was AWFUL to get out of bed - but we did. Headed to the conference, I presented at 1:15 p.m. and then a nap was in store for this mama. I HAD to make it OUT again that night. AGH!!!!!! So I snoozed a bit, then woke up and got ready for our "Wine Down" reception. We enjoyed some bubbly and smooshing and then off we went to Vallani for dinner (Mediterranean). Then back to a few "other" places as well. LOL
Killer to wake up on Tuesday AGAIN (see how there is no more running/working out in here - bad girl Mel). Headed BACK to the conference and had a full day - then back to the room to get ready AGAIN. We hit up the Capital Grille for dinner. I gnawed on a steak and out we were AGAIN. AGH!!! Now, Sunday I was missing my babies. Baby missing face right down there.
Our flight home was fine and I was back in STL hanging with the family. Yes my 5 days of "non-reality" have ended and I am back to being "little ole me".
Now I am going to read some blogs, comment some comments, and get back in SHAPE! LOL See ya later Philly - next up San Diego in May. HUZZAH!
P.S. my girl Gina is having an awesome baby hat give-a-way over on her blog - they are so stinkin cute. Check her out.
