Hi everyone! I am here! Healthy Living Summit has officially begun and I am exhausted already! When I landed in Philly I met up with Caitlin, Brittney, Kelly, Stephanie, Erin and Allison and we all headed to the hotel!
(My group picture came out BLURRY so I will have to steal one from someone else later. SO bummed! A button got hit while it was in my bag. Sad times.)
We checked into our rooms at the Marriott
and headed out for lunch. We spread the word and a huge group ended up gathering!
So…I almost got beat up on the street, not even kidding. Yall, in the south we are nice to everyone and say hi to everyone. We were waiting to cross a street (all 14 of us, we had split into 2 groups) and this RUDE woman starts freaking out saying we needed to get out of the way and as she walked away I said in a cheerful tone “have a nice day!” (I am all about killing with kindness.) She stops and goes “WHO SAID THAT, WHO? COME ON! Ya, that’s what I thought!” Oh. My. Gosh. How awful! Totally hope I’m not offending anyone from here, but a lot of people wete rude to us.Cars honking at us when it took us a bit longer to cross the street because we were in a group…just not nice. Today did not really show me that this is the city of brotherly love! 🙁 maybe tomorrow? The shop owners at the place we ate lunch were really nice though.
We walked about a mile and found a cute little place for lunch. We kind of scared the owners, when our group walked in, they looked like deer in headlights and were actually calling employees in to help cook/make out food!
We ended up eating outside next to the restaurant, the food was really good. I got a turkey club of some sorts. Holy yum. I was close to gnawing off my arm, so getting food was a good thing for me.
I think everyone had a good time!
We went back to the hotel and checked in for the summit!
There was so much excitement in the air, I love it!
Holy swag! Our bags are so heavy I am going to have to check my bag on the way home! I felt like a little kid dumping it out on the bed to check it out!
