Where In The World Is Jill?

It was a whirlwind week!

Tuesday, Veteran's Day, started very early for a trip to Philadelphia, PA. It was very appropriate to be in the city where the birth of our country took place.

We saw Independence Hall

The Liberty Bell
The Korean Memorial
The Vietnam Memorial
And we enjoyed Martha's Ale at The City Tavern (established in 1773)

A little work was even accomplished before the sightseeing.

Wednesday was a little more work and flight back to Atlanta.

Thursday night DF Heather, her DH Michael, and I went to the So You Think You Can Dance Tour Show. It was fantastic!
Our seats were great

The dancing was fabulous!

Heather and I did a lot of screaming. We hung out after the show for 45 minutes hoping to see the dancers - Heather was waiting to see Gev and I was waiting to see Joshua and get a picture with him. Tiredness (and age?) eventually won out and we headed home before they came out. The crowd waiting was still large. I'm very jealous of those young and rested enough to stick it out.

Friday I headed to Tallahassee for Homecoming. I was barely functioning by the time I arrived.

Saturday DF Teresa and I went to Wooly Bully and Really Knit Stuff. We managed to help out the local economy with a few purchases. Then we met up with Selena and her DH Kevin to go to the football game.

Teresa and I stopped by to say hello to Renegade and Renegade-in-training

Aren't they beautiful?! Teresa and I were even in the tunnel when the team came off the field from warm ups and Renegade and Chief Osceola went on to the field. We were definitely in the spirit!

It was a black out game.
The Marching Chiefs don't have black uniforms
The game did not go the way that we wanted, but we had fun.

Sunday it was back to Atlanta to start this week - and catch up on some sleep.
