Weekend recap

Friday, I made Geof and I a steak dinner and then did some work. Gwen called me later in the evening and we had another great conversation. She is such a wonderful person and it just reminds me that I need to try my hardest to get out there to visit her. After both of our husbands hollering at us, we finally managed to get off the phone. I realized Geof only wanted me off the phone to be his Rock Band partner in the basement. I agreed because we bought the microphone for it and I got to sing Lady GaGa.

Saturday, I got up and worked for a few hours and then we got ready to head off to a wedding at the Adventure Aquarium in NJ for our friends Greg and Alison’s special day. The venue is right on the Delaware River and has a magnificent view of Philadelphia. The actual room that the reception was in was part of the other side of the aquarium with great views of the shark tank. It was filled with many fish and of course lots of sharks. It was definitely one of the most unique venues that I’ve ever been to a wedding in. They did such a nice job tying the whole aquarium theme together and had turquoise and orange as their primary colors. We had a really nice time and it was a beautiful night.

Kind of blurry, but there is the shark tank in in the backgrond.


Loved the cakes, even if Greg is a Mets fan!

Candy buffet and pretty blue decor

Fireworks when we were leaving that were going on at the Riversharks game

Sunday, I worked for another few hours (things are crazy with work right now) and then headed off to the gym. I don’t usually go on Sundays, but was glad that I did. It wasn’t crowded and actually somewhat cool in there for a change. I came home, caught up on some blogs and Geof cooked us dinner. We watched some baseball and hockey and called it a night.

What a unique place for a wedding reception. I could not go though because I am terrified of sharks. I still love the idea!

Sounds like a fabulous weekend! I love the cakes and the candy bar! And how fun that they have Lady Gaga on Rock band! I've only played guitar hero, which I love, but they don't have Lady Gaga (as far as I know at least).
