Philadelphia Weekend

I had no intention of ignoring the blog this weekend, and really I didn't. However, my MacBook is acting up and iPhoto won't load when I try to upload pictures, here or anywhere online. I have an appointment at the Apple Store at the King of Prussia mall in a couple hours, so hopefully we can figure out whats wrong... and why the fan keeps turning on when its not overheated. Anyway, its been a great weekend away with hubby in Philadelphia. We arrived around 7pm on Sunday, checked into our hotel, found the testing site, had some dinner, and watched The Office on netflix till we fell asleep. Yesterday while hubby was testing, I checked out the King of Prussia mall, and amazingly restrained myself from purchasing anything. Its a really nice mall too! After I picked up hubby from his test, we headed into Philadelphia to check out Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. It was really cool to be standing in the same room where such important things happened for our country. Afterwards, we went to The Great American Pub, recommended by some friends, and had a wonderful dinner. Then we saw The Amazing Spiderman, and fell right to sleep when we got back to our hotel. Anyway, here are some pictures from our trip. Hopefully my laptop will be fixed and I can go back to regular outfit pictures again tomorrow!

Cheese Ravioli.... soooo good!

We've loved our time away. Its kind of a vacation for us, more like a business trip for hubby. But we still had fun and enjoyed ourselves in a different city.
