Yep, I finally checked a box on my Bucket List!! Last Thursday I got to meet up with four of my bloggy buddies for a great day of food, fun and thriftin'! It was everything I thought it would be and more. Ever heard of King of Prussia? It's in Pennsylvania and home to one of the biggest and best Malls in the whole country. And we were there! Well, not exactly there, but we did drive right past it, and not just once, but twice! And we could have gone in too. But where's the sense in that? My fun money wouldn't have lasted more than a nanosecond in that place.
In my ridiculous excitement, I took lots and lots of pictures, some with my head hanging out the window going over the Walt Whitman Bridge from South Jersey into Philadelphia.
It was such a beautiful day.
A view from the Delaware River.
Love this city!
The Philadelphia Art Museum.....can you see Rocky?
Beautiful Boathouse Row.
Crew teams from all the nearby universities are frequently spotted practicing here.
The oh-so funky and hip borough of Manayunk.
And here we are!! We met up at the Bear Rock Cafe for coffee and a quick bite to eat.
(L to R, Stephanie from Conversations From The Cul-De-Sac, Wendy from Relatively Unique, Jessi from Yankee Belle Home and Deb from Confessions of an Ugly Mom.) Aren't they just the most beautiful group of gals eva! You can't tell from the picture, but sweet Jessi is expecting her second little bundle. Doesn't she make just the cutest pregnant lady?
Jessi worked nearby and was able to meet up with us for breakfast, but then had to leave :(
And Steph, Wendy and Deb are all from Hershey. Yep THAT Hershey. As in, like only 5 minutes from Chocolate World!
Our first stop was an upscale furniture consignment store. Kind of an oxy-moron isn't it? Upscale and consignment in the same sentence!
We didn't buy anything here. But we sure had fun lookin!
Lots of deliciousness!
Steph, Deb and Wendy waiting patiently for me at the door. Sorry girls, I just couldn't get enough of all this eye candy!
Look what Deb found at the Salvation Army!
Well, it was so much fun we decided to do it again. At the Hershey Spa! Suh-WEET! You all are welcome to come too! A chocolate bath might just be worth the flight!
