Adventures in Philly

by jenna on June 4, 2010


Things got a little crazy this afternoon in the park. We tried really hard to be normal but….it’s hard.
This is how I prefer to wear my hair when I go out. If you didn’t know already, this style was just featured in the latest issue of Vogue.
That was a little better.

Clearly it was a fashion show.
And lunch, obviously, was amazing. Sabrina took us to DeBruno’s and I almost freaked with all the options! In the end, I chose three little dishes from the hot bar.

Two little grape leaves:

Gigantic beans in tomato sauce:

And some roasted veggies.

After lunch we walked 5000 blocks to Phileo frozen yogurt (actually we walked four blocks and then took a cab but that just sounded cooler). It was so awesome to meet some of y’all and I was so excited we had such a great turnout!

I then stole a baby.

He’s coming back to California with me…..his mother told me it was fine.


Okay fine. I put him back where I found him. Happy now?

Babies. Amazing. For like, five minutes and then I definitely want to give them back! Oops.

Looks like you’re having so much fun — giant beans and stuffed grape leaves both look amazing! Please find the place I had a mojito when I was there and get one…it was life changing. Just need to remember the name of it now…small details!

Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine June 4, 2010 at 3:11 pm

That baby was adorable, I agree :) Glad you’ve had fun in Philly so far, hope you enjoy your last few days here!

What an action shot! Kudo to the photagrapher.

I think your having TOO much fun! :)

A related post at the bottom of this one shows you with shorter hair – I love your hair now – but I think you’d look really awesome with it chin-length too !! Either way you win :)


Heather (Heather's Dish) June 4, 2010 at 3:22 pm

what a cute baby :) i love your hair this length…it frames your face better and it looks beautiful…not at all fried like you said it was!


Lindsay @ Summit Sandwiches June 4, 2010 at 3:23 pm

You girls are ADORABLE! I love the pics of you all jumping. I’m impressed with the air you got on that one! You look like you’re having an absolute blast.


Stacey June 4, 2010 at 3:32 pm

Tammy (Defining Wellness) June 4, 2010 at 3:34 pm

I had SO much fun today. It was awesome to meet you, and I really hope it’s the first of many get-togethers. Thanks so much for taking the time to meet us at Phileo. Hugs!

Much appreciated!

Marisa June 4, 2010 at 3:49 pm

Oh my goodness that baby is cute! I love the hair. I also LOVE your dress. I will have to check out the Urban here in Mad-town to see if they have it.


Mara @ What's For Dinner? June 4, 2010 at 3:51 pm

how fun!! I’ve never visited Philly outside the airport…


Robyn @ Frugal 'n' Fit! June 4, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Frozen yogurt + Babies = Perfection


Helen June 4, 2010 at 4:04 pm

It looks like you guys are having so much fun! I love all the cute summer outfits. I’m glad there was a good turnout for your meet-up, I love the blog world!!
Plus that baby is too cute to leave behind!


Adam June 4, 2010 at 4:07 pm

What a cutie… Hope the boyfriend isn’t reading this “gulp”–ing to the baby comment :)


Katherine June 4, 2010 at 4:08 pm

So fun! You guys are adorable and seem to be having a blast :)


Diana @ frontyardfoodie June 4, 2010 at 4:50 pm

haha that baby has got an expression huh!? Adorable.

I now want to go to Philly. The husband says no……….so we settled on Boston.


Ellie June 4, 2010 at 4:57 pm

OWWW. . . Love the baby, I want one (in 6 to 10 years when I am settled and married!)


Sadye June 4, 2010 at 5:00 pm

You can take Mason anytime you want! He’s very good and will know how to do dishes and laundry in about 10 years. Good deal, no? It was great meeting you today! I think I need to lay off feeding Mason carrots, because his nose is as orange as his hair in these pictures!


Suzanne de Cornelia June 4, 2010 at 5:00 pm

Very cute pix–what a fun day! Can’t resist babies or dogs, either.


The Actors Diet June 4, 2010 at 5:02 pm

um, i know that baby! that’s my friend sadye’s adorable son!!!


Camille June 4, 2010 at 5:05 pm

Hahahaha, oh my goodness! What red hair he has!


Cynthia (It All Changes) June 4, 2010 at 5:06 pm

I love the group pictures :-)

And I’m sure the baby would have loved it in California.


Megan @ The Oatmeal Diaries June 4, 2010 at 5:59 pm

That baby ginger is seriously the cutest thing ever! You should have kept the little guy! Glad you had fun at Phileo :)


Lisa @ bakebikeblog June 4, 2010 at 6:48 pm

What a fun day!!!!!! You girls are too funny :) LOVE IT!


Ginny June 4, 2010 at 6:49 pm

It was so nice to meet you today!!! I wish I hadn’t had to run so soon but I’m still happy to have met you. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip! Come back to Philly soon :)


Jessica @ The Process of Healing June 4, 2010 at 7:15 pm

Awwwww the baby is precious!!!


Daisy June 4, 2010 at 7:17 pm

even that babies nose is orange. adorableeeee


Melissa Cari @ Miles for Markets June 4, 2010 at 7:21 pm

It was so great to meet you today! Wish we could have had more time (or at least a place to sit!…next time :) ) I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend here!


Amber K @ sparkpeople June 4, 2010 at 8:03 pm

Glad it was a fun meet up! Cute baby! I’d steal him too.

Luckily my niece and nephew are 7 months old and I can steal them anytime I want to. =)


Heather June 4, 2010 at 8:27 pm

I’ve never actually thought about ever visiting Philadelphia, but from the pictures it sure does look like a beautiful city.

Do you do much to your hair as far as styling goes? I think your cut is cute and I am thinking about having something similar (with bangs) but I’m a “wake-up, brush hair and go” type of girl.. I don’t use any products besides shampoo and conditioner!


Ash Bear June 4, 2010 at 8:29 pm

I am so glad you are having the great opportunity to experience Philadelphia! Today as Bolt Bus jetted me across the Ben Franklin bridge I realized how much I miss Philadelphia. I moved to NYC a year ago and while it has it’s perks it definitely doesn’t have the Rocky Steps, Boathouse Row, BYOB restaurants, or Sabrina! :)

Have fun!!


Suzanne de Cornelia June 4, 2010 at 9:08 pm

Had to add these librarians doing Lady Gaga. Cute & funny.


Nora@LiveLifeEatRight June 4, 2010 at 10:25 pm

That baby is ADORABLE! Looks like you ladies are having so much fun! Can’t wait to see all of your adventures this weekend! ENJOY!


Sarah (OC2Seattle) June 5, 2010 at 12:02 am

Hmm . . . it could have been entertaining if you had kept him 😉 But he probably would have missed his mama eventually. Looks like you guys are having a blast!


jenny (green food diaries) June 5, 2010 at 12:06 am

lovely dress! looks like it has all my favourite colours in it. the grape leaves look yummy.


Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter June 5, 2010 at 12:13 am

awww that baby is absolutely precious!


Kelly June 5, 2010 at 6:23 am

Haha! My fiance always says I’m going to be a baby-stealer b/c I’m always talking and playing with random babies. I just love babies, even the furry kind. :)


Melissa @ For the Love of Health June 5, 2010 at 6:43 am

It looks like you guys had so much fun! Would have loved to meet you! :-)


A Teenage Gourmet (Sami) June 5, 2010 at 7:00 am

The jumpy pictures are so classic. =] My friends and I do them too!


Melissa June 5, 2010 at 7:14 am

Welcome to Philly!! I’ve lived here all my life, but last weekend was the first time I ever went to DeBrunos! It’s amazing in there! Soooo many choices.


Paige (Running Around Normal) June 5, 2010 at 7:28 am

Amy D June 5, 2010 at 8:48 am

Love the pictures & I have to agree, your dress is super cute. I am so jealous I couldn’t be at the reader-meet-up!! Did you guys feel like celebrities?


Alycia @ Fit n Fresh June 5, 2010 at 11:59 am

haha what an adorable baby!! And I am loving the action shots! (:


Annie D. @ Annie's Simple Life June 6, 2010 at 4:19 pm



Corinne (breathe and savor) June 8, 2010 at 1:31 pm
