Bloggies in the pod

Hi friends! How’s your weekend going? Hope you’re having a beautiful and relaxing day so far :)

Thanks so much for the Philly recommendations! The official HLS events are over, so we’ll see what kind of shenanigans the Pilot and I can get into today ;)

Yesterday, in between events, we met up with some friends to hit up the Rittenhouse farmer’s market.

The market was really cute- lots of flower vendors, produce, goat cheese (!) and fresh lemonade. We each grabbed one, and I loved the option of having it sweetened with Stevia instead of agave.

As much as I love to visit other farmer’s markets, it’s always a legendary tease because there isn’t a ton you can take on a plane home with you.

I’m hoping to head back to that area today, because the surrounding stores looked very appealing ;)

For dinner, we went to pod, which is a modern family-style Asian restaurant.

The atmosphere was pretty amazeballz:

Sleek, modern, and I’m a fan of any place with conveyor belt sushi :)

To start, we shared some salty warm edamame:

Thai salad for me (cabbage, cilantro, egg, peanuts, avocado, vinaigrette)

+ one of the few rolls I can roll with for the next few months: California

The best part:

brownie

Chocolate hazelnut brownie with espresso ice cream.

Yeah.

It was so much fun chatting with the girls, being told crazy stories by the Pilot and feasting on glorious food :)

After dinner, we went to a wine bar, the hotel bar and called it a night. It was the latest this old lady’s been up in a while ;)

Have a great day!

See ya later this afternoon <3

  1. Great 7 minute cardio/abs workout.

  2. Super excited about this ab workout! Looks like it’s fast-paced, yet very challenging! I love the x-files move–never seen that one before! I’ve been looking for some new ab workouts and this one fits the bill! Thanks :)
