Best Shot Monday: Saturday Fun

I got the chance to spend Saturday with my friend Shelly and we went into the city we loving call "Philly". We first went to Luna Salon where I chopped off all my hair, and then to the Italian market for some good food and back up to Reading Terminal for more...good food.

I have what my sister calls "parking mojo", that mean I can always find a place to park. What I don't have is "parking ticket mojo", which means that even though I put the money in the meter it runs out seconds before I get there and I end up with a ticket that cost more than it would to park in a garage.

I digress.

So after chopping off my hair we headed to South Philly! This is the only place I took a few shots. We were so busy shopping that I kept forgetting to take a picture. I will be taking many more of Philly in July when I participate in Scott Kelby's wide world photowalk, so excited.

Fante's is a a cookware shop where you can find almost any kitchen gadget or baking supply. Did you know there is a tool to peel banana's with?

We must have spent a good 45 mins in there. I bought a bunch of stuff I did not need but I had to have.

There are a couple mural right in the center of the market, one for the landmark DiBruno Bros and one for the late major Frank Rizzo.

I am calling this one my Best Shot for this Monday. When I think of the Italian Market this is the picture in my head.

For more Best Shot, head on over the Tracey at Mother May I this Monday.

BTW: if you are ever in Philly you must go to the Reading Terminal to Carmen's Famous Italian Hoagies and Cheesesteaks and get a Chicken a la Rocco with extra die for!


  1. And let's not forget about the "to die for" chocolate covered raspberry buttercream macaroon bananas! Need I say more?

  2. Now THAT sounds like an awesome day. Friends, shopping and yummy food - what more can you ask for??? Well, obviously a banana peeler. ;) Hey, we need a picture of your new 'do!

  3. you were right in my neighborhood and you didn't even call!!

    Next time maybe we can meet up for a cup of coffee

  4. that sounds like the perfect neighborhood for me! how fun - and let's see the hair!!

  5. I'm still trying to figure out why anyone would need a bannana peeler. LOL! Glad you were able to get away and have a good time. Love the photo of the mural. Gorgeous.

  6. Oh, that sounds like the perfect way to spend a Saturday.

  7. oohh!!! What a FUN day!!! I'm jealous! :)

    And, that last shot is PERFECT! LOVE it!

  8. I'm jealous of your parking boon, but I usually manage to find friends with the same sort of mojo. And thanks for the heads up on Fante's, which offers online shopping ... that's JUST what I needed. :) Beautiful photos of what looks and sounds like a fabulous day.
