I should go away more often!

That's one pooped kid up there. So is his mama!

Hi peeps! Last week I was in Philadelphia crashing hubby's work trip. I haven't been since I was in like fourth grade for a school field trip. My most vivid memory from that trip is of Betsy Ross' house being so small that my teacher couldn't actually fit in it. We were all like, "Why isn't Mrs. Sebastian coming in?" Of course evil children that we were, we knew why so we kept asking our chaperones and snickering afterward.

But I digress, while I was in Philly I pretty much ignored my Etsy shop and had fun with my son. I did check in once in a while to see if I'd had any sales and such. Well do you know what? I need to go away more often! This week I was apparently on the front page twice, reached 2500 hearts and broke 200 sales! And I sold approximately one thing a day while I was gone! Well if that's how it has to be, I'll go away all the time! ;D

Highlights of my Philly trip:

*Please Touch Museum - great spot for kiddies! It's moving soon to a new location.

*Philadelphia Museum of Art - Alexander Calder Jewelry exhibit was freakin' awesome.
Shout out to my gals at Accent Beads for reminding me!
*Soho Pizzeria and Bar in Old City - Fan-freakin'-tastic pizza. I wish I could get such a good slice in DC.

*VIX Emporium - handmade shop of course full of fellow Etsian work! The owner, Emily was also very nice.

*walking - Philadelphia is a very walkable spot. I enjoyed it a lot.

I did see the Betsy Ross house again but I didn't go in. Too tough to do with the stroller. That and I kind of have a soft spot in my heart for my evil childhood memory. If I had liked Mrs. Sebastian, I'd have gone in again to create a new memory.
