4th of July weekend recap

Friday, Geof and I took the day off and headed to Delaware for some tax-free shopping. My mom and I both got him gift cards to Best Buy for his birthday so that he could use them towards a new camcorder, which is something he has wanted for awhile. After Best Buy, we made a quick stop at Ulta and then headed off to dinner at Don Pablo’s. After dinner, we drove home and got ready to go out.

We went to The Deck for Geof’s birthday and Kelly and Jim met up with us. It was a beautiful night on the river and we could not have asked for better weather. Geof had a nice time and that’s what was most important.

Pretty roses Geof got for me at The Deck

Saturday, Geof and I went to the movies to see Eclipse and about 20 minutes before the movie ended a siren started going off and we had to evacuate the theater. There is nothing worse than being left hanging (even though I have read all the books). The fire engines came and it seemed to be a false alarm. We got some free vouchers and then went to dinner at Spice. I got the usual Chicken Tikka Masala with Paneer and it was delicious as always, although the service could have been a little better.

We stopped for some Rita's Water Ice on the way home...notice Geof's orange lips :)

Sunday, we spent the afternoon at the pool and then went to our friends, Jamie & Beth’s, house for a BBQ. We called it an early night because we had to get home to the dogs. We ended up taking them for a late night 3 mile walk and got to see some fireworks along the way.


Another beautiful day at the pool!

Monday, Geof and I went back to the movies and saw The A-Team and timed it perfectly so that we could see the conclusion to Eclipse. The A-Team was really good and even if you’re not into action movies, a shirtless Bradley Cooper should be enough to make you want to see it. That man is beautiful. In the end, Eclipse was exactly as I expected and the movie was decent, although the books are much better (which is usually the case). After the movies, Geof and I went to Uno for dinner. I hated the pizza that we got and barely got down a slice. We headed home and spent the rest of the night with the pups.



It was really nice to get some quiet time and dates in with Geof. With me working so much and him traveling on and off, I feel like it’s easy to get disconnected. This long weekend was a perfect time for us to enjoy each other and have fun. I hope that everyone had a Happy 4th!

mmm I love rice!

TS Hendrik said...

That sounds like one packed weekend. The sirens cutting through the movie may have cut it short but it sure makes for a great story.

Melissa said...

I'm glad you had a nice weekend and got to spend some time with your husband! :)

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

What a nice weekend :-)

I so want to see A-Team just for Bradley.

Brittany said...

I love outside places! (I'm assuming that The Deck was one)

I can't believe the fire alarm went off! I would have been SO mad. At least they gave you free vouchers though :)

The pool you go to looks so fun! I love water slides :)

Glad you got to see fireworks on your walk! It seems like you had such a FUN weekend!

Gwen said...

Girl you look fabulous!!!!

I'm glad you had such a fun time. That pool looks like so much fun and your dinner at Spice looks delicious!!

I have no desire to see Eclipse (I know shoot me know) but I would love to see the A-Team. LOL!!!

Glad you had a happy & safe 4th my friend!!!

XOXO

Linda said...

I liked both The A-Team and Eclipse. Looks like a great weekend!

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Glad you had a great 4th of July weekend!! I'm jealous you still have Don Pablos...all ours closed, I thought the whole franchise went under...guess not!

I think I may be the only one who not only didn't see Eclipse this weekend but has no desire to ever see it. Call me crazy, I just don't get it.

First of all, thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. Yay! They made my day.

Your weekend sounds fabulous! I love the scarf that you're wearing in one of the pictures.

I loved Eclipse, too, though I agree that the books are sooooo much better. But the movies are good, I think, as movies go.

I have got to see The A-Team. Is it wrong that Bradley Cooper is pretty much the only reason that I wanted to see it? Now that I know it's also a good movie, I'm definitely going.

Hope you have a great week!

MCW said...

I am loving that picture of you when Geoff has orange lips!
So many people went to water parks this weekend and now I am DYING to go down a slide!!!!!!

Brittany Ann said...

Glad you got some quality time with your man this holiday weekend!

Meghan said...

I am majorly jealous of your weekend! It sounds heavenly - full of good food, movies and time with your man! I am glad you were able to finish Eclipse, too, and I definitely agree with your review!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the sweet comments - now following your lovely blog too!

Miss Sweet Tea said...

Hey sweet friend! You look so great in that first picture!! Relaxed and happy! I am planning to see Eclipse this weekend. I didn't read the books, but watched the first two a few months ago, and now I'm hooked! Your dinner at Paneer looks awesome, but I just hate bad service!! Boo!

I spent most of my weekend at the pool too, and it is so tiring! Haha, isn't that funny??! But seriously, laying out/playing in the pool really wears me out...I took 3 naps on Sunday!

I'm glad you and Geof had a nice weekend! And luckily, this is a short work week so that's exciting!

Danielle said...

I laughed out loud at your A Team review because my sis told me I had to see it since Bradley Cooper is pretty much shirtless throughout the entire film. Love it :)

Sounds like a great weekend!

Sweet Southern Prep said...

Wow, you had such a fun weekend, with beautiful weather!! So did you end up getting to see the final 20 minutes? Or, will you have to go back? That sucks they left you hanging!

Michelle @ Flying Giggles said...

Wow, what a fab weekend! I cannot believe the alarm went off. That reminds me of the first time my husband and I went out of town without my daughter. We were looking forward to sleeping in and the smoke alarm went of at 6 am - false alarm and we did not get to sleep in.

carma said...

enjoyed seeing your pics! And you did score a deal on the 2 for 1 movies :D I used to love watching the original A Team movies back in the day...

Beach Bum & Baby said...

I may need to hop on the twilight bandwagon huh? I didn't realize that you were into it too!! That really stinks that you had to go back to finish it!!
Hope you are having a fabulous week!! xoxo

That pool looks like so much fun!

I can't believe you didn't get to see the end of the movie. Glad it wasn't a real fire though!
