#ThrowbackThursday – The Philadelphia Flower Show

I’m not a fan of cold weather and winter is tough for me. There is one thing that keeps my going until Spring arrives – The Philadelphia Flower Show. I love seeing all the amazing flowers and imagining how one day I could make my yard look like that – if only all the deer would go away! I especially love bulbs, like tulips, hyacinths, irises and more so today’s throwback is to some tulips from the 2010 Flower Show.

#ThrowbackThursday Philly Flower Show

By this time of winter, my cabin fever has set in and I am so ready for spring! I love being outdoors. I love flowers and plants and the taste of sun warm tomatoes straight from my yard. Sigh. One of the things that keeps me going until then is the Philadelphia Flower Show! I can’t wait to go this year!

So today’s throwback is to the 2015 Philadelphia Flower Show. I’ll have lots of photos for you the second week in March.

#ThrowbackThursday The Philly Fanatic

Hubby and I went to school right outside of Philadelphia and as it turned out, our daughter chose a college in Philadelphia as well! The first parent’s weekend, we went out for the festivities and who was there: None other than the Philly Fanatic, the mascot for the Phillies baseball team.

This is my daughter with the Fanatic and my hubby photobombing them!

Sharing the Fun!

I was recently at a conference in Philadelphia and wanted to share some photos with you. I had a nice time meeting both old and new friends and Philly was so much fun. The hotel was in Center City and the weather was great, so it was not a problem walking around. We were able to share the city with friends who had never been there before which was cool. I love Philly. It’s a great city.

So now onto the photos! If you can’t see the slideshow below, you can click here to see the photos.

Guilty Pleasure Cliff Lee

It’s that time of year when a girl’s fancy turns to . . .

Baseball! So today’s Guilty Pleasure Monday is one of my favorite baseball players, Philadelphia Phillie Cliff Lee. I had so been hoping that the Mets would be able to acquire him, but with their financial issues, Cliff went to the Phillies. Don’t even think the Mets were even in the running to get him, although they sure could use some strong starting pitchers.

How about you? Do you have any other baseball favorites you’d like to share? Like David Wright? Or Jason Werth? How about Mr. Utley?

Guilty Pleasures Monday – Phillie’s Chase Utley

With my beloved Mets out of post-season play (again!), I’m rooting for the NL East Champion Phillies to go all the way!

There are so many players on the Phillies that are certified cuties, but I’ll start with Mr. Dependable – Chase Utley. I just love his work ethic and his boy-next-door charm. Did I mention his good looks as well?

Here’s hoping you get another ring, Chase!
