Weekend re-cap

Just a little update on my weekend. We got a lot of the family together and took my son John out for his 25th birthday dinner. Here he is with sister Amy.

Hubby and mother-in-law, waiting for the rest of the crew.

The gang is all here. My brother-in-law with his family. We went to a Brazilian steakhouse. They come around and carve all different meats at the table. Filet, lamb, prime rib, chicken, etc. Very large salad bar with everything you could imagine. Very nice and delicious place.


My son moved to Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia a few weeks ago. I just love this town, very old and historical. Everything is walking distance from his apartment. He is 2 blocks from Main Street. You name it, it is there. Starbucks, cheese shop, bakery, music store, Gap, sushi, hardware store, and the list goes on and on. Here we are at the local farmer's market.

Inside the farmer's market, waiting for lunch.

He moved into a little studio apartment on the 9th floor. This is the small kitchen galley and his front door. He also has a huge walk-in closet next to his bathroom.

Now remember, it is only a studio. Here is his new couch he bought with his bed behind it. He still has some kinks to iron out, like cords to his electronics and window treatments. All in all, he keeps it really neat and tidy!

This is his view from his windows. It looks out over Fairmount Park, very pretty.

I hope you all had a nice weekend. I must say, it was real nice getting that extra hour from daylight savings!!



  1. Looks like a fabulous time celebrating!!! ... I remember the days of my first apartment .. much the same but without the grand view... HHL

  2. Hey Ronda,
    So happy to see you around the blog world again:) I love how your family all gets together.
    The town sounds adorable. I've always wanted to live near "Main Street"...but we never live anywhere that has one!
    Love the apartment...reminds me of my first one. Must be fun to have kids John and Amy's age. But don't they live with us forever???:)
