Yesterday I traveled to my college hometown on the beautiful Main Line and spent hours with my dearest friends Jess and Kait. It was so good to be back- to drink dreamy chai from the Gryphon, enjoy an almost too good to be true veggie burger from Christophers, browse the eclectic (pricey) boutiques and catch up with such amazing souls. I seriously forgot that it was my first unpaid furlough day from work (knowing that I landed my dream job and will be escaping at least part of the budget cut also helped a bit).
Mike suggested we go on a Saturday adventure- starting with brunch at Andy's Diner home of the 97.5 The Fanatic broadcast. The all you can eat breakfast buffet did not disappoint- sauteed onions in the homefries=amazing. Since we were new to the area we googled "thrift stores," hit up a local Goodwill and walked away with handmade turquoise earrings, a curtain rod, bandanna for the dog and a budgeting notebook all for about $6!
Groupon happened to send me a deal for a fabric store in Philadelphia so we headed back into Philly and searched Fabric Row for upholstery fabric for our master bedroom headboard project.
|This particular store had a very particular odor and isles and isles of fabric that weren't so easy to navigate...|
The amount and variety of fabric was amazing- and the eclectic owners were quite entertaining, however we couldn't find a fabric that stole our hearts more than this $50 a yard (ouch!) fabric from JoAnns:
|It's neutral enough to be able to change with our style over the years but still so boho chic!|
We ended our adventure back at home where I spruced up the garden, harvested a few tomatoes
|(Thanks Dad- some of these are from your garden too!)|
It has been a seriously amazingly sweet weekend- and I hope you've had the same. <3
