..and that doesn’t have anything to do with me turning 30.
Okay, maybe it does.
So while I was on my blogging hiatus I had a big bday! I documented it all in hopes of sharing it here on the blog. So now for your viewing pleasure, my 30th in pictures (mostly)
The day started with a trip to Longwood Gardens. It’s a beautiful property of outdoor flowers and fountains, and the most amazing conservatory. Its on the grounds owned by the DuPont family.
After the amazing tour, we went to lunch at a cute cafe nearby called Sovana that was ranked in Philly’s Top 50 Restaurants.
I had the goat cheese sandwich on toasted raisin bread with an arugula and fennel salad. Really good except that there was roasted cauliflower in the sandwich (I thought it was on the side) and I wasn’t quite digging it.
Joe had the papardelle with wild boar ragout
He liked it.
Later we went out AGAIN to the Stella Pizzeria in Old City, Philadelphia. It’s a swanky Steven Starr restaurant packaged up to look like a regular pizza shop.
Wine in a glass (not the wine variety) nice touch!
Sausage Pizza on top, spinach pizza on bottom- good stuff, with a few leftovers
Then we were off to see Bill Burr at the Tower Theatre! He is a hilarious comedian, you might have seen him in Date Night or on the Chappelle Show.
Here’s one of my ABSOLUTE favorite sets. HILARIOUS!
(FYI- some not-so-kid friendly language)
Pheww…as you can see it was an awesome, fun filled day! Joe planned everything and I enjoyed every minute!
Today is not nearly as exciting, doing my remaining school work and finishing up my portfolio. TEDIOUS!
Hope you’re having a great weekend!
Celebrate any bdays recently? Wha’d ya do?
Do you enjoy stand up comedy?
