Ending the summer with cheese steak and romance!

The first day back to school was today.  6am HURTS!  I woke up every hour on the hour from about 1am to 6am.  BOO!  It totally sucks.  But such is life.  I will get used to it once again.  My baby was so groggy when I woke her this morning at 6:45.  Poor dear.  She was a good girl though.  She was thrilled to see Becky, and according to her she had a decent day for the first day back.  She had a couple of moments, but who didn't?  I know I did.  

So, I made it through... the rest of this week shouldn't be too bad, but we'll see what tune I'm singing next week when the kids return.  Agh! 

Now without further delay, I know everyone is dying to see pictures of our Philadelphia trip.  ;-)  I'll show you a few because I'm not in the mood to upload a gazillion pictures tonight.  We did have a fantastic time!  It was perfect! (Except for Andrew stressing about our GPS messing up for a bit... and the parking.  What is it with men and driving that stresses them so much?)  Anyway... other than that it was perfect!  I love him!  :-)  Like you didn't know.  

We started with a cheese steak from Pat's. Such a fun experience! We were going to do Geno's in the same day, but it didn't happen.  We were stuffed!

We saw lots and lots of sites after our lunch and I have pictures, but you would just be bored... so, I'll continue on with our food...  

On South Street we stopped in for a refreshing treat from this AWESOME yogurt place!  Georgia Peach was what I had and Andrew had Snickerdoodle.  AMAZING! See the row of choices behind me!?  There were like 30 different soft serve yogurts to choose from!  And they were all fat free!  yay

Saturday we hit a few more places... but on the top of Andrew's list was running up the Rocky stairs!   It made me laugh.  I was amused at just how many people were there to do the same exact thing.  hilarious.  That poor art museum is probably totally pissed that people just come there because of Rocky.  

And now... the ONLY picture of us together from our trip.  Aren't we cute?! :-) 

And of course we ended the trip with a cheese steak from Geno's.  Andrew and I both agreed this was our favorite.  We liked the bread, the meat and the service better!  But if you haven't been you should still eat at both! :-) 

So, that's our trip in a nutshell.  It was a fun time but now it's back to reality.  

When oh when will I be a SAHM like all the other mommy bloggers I read?!  What are your secrets?  Those of you who are WAHM, how did you get your gig?  I need some suggestions and maybe one day I can stay home too.  A girl can dream! :-)  

Don't expect much in the way of blogging for a while.  I'll do my best, but I can't make promises of frequent updates with school and such coming upon me.

Everytime I come back to look at the blog here I see these pictures and I can't help but want to eat more cheesesteaks at either of these venues. part of me thinks a day trip up there would be worthwhile...and I have an EZ-Pass!
