Eric and I started the weekend off right with some good food. We ate a lot of salads and I’ve recently become obsessed with artichoke hearts. They are taking my salads to a whole new level.
I also baked some bread, which I hadn’t done in a while. I used this recipe from The New York Times and it was really simple and turned out delicious.
Friday afternoon we grabbed some beers at Kraftwork in Fishtown.
Then we walked over to the newly opened Frankford Hall. It’s Stephen Starr’s latest creation and is a German-esque beer hall. I’ve been anxiously awaiting its opening because I kind of love all things German. I minored in German in college and studied abroad in a small town outside of Berlin. It’s a really nice place and I love that most of it is outside. They also have a few titsch-tennis tables (ping pong).
Finally, on our walk home we stopped in Standard Tap for another beer, hah, and shared some fries.
I made friends with the cutest cat on the walk home. It’s hard to tell in these photos, but his face looked EXACTLY like Grissom’s. It addition to loving all things German, I also love all things cats!
Pretty much all of Saturday was spent watching my blogger BFF Leslie get married!!
I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Leslie, and her now-husband Charles, over the past year! We’ve had a lot of fun running together, shopping together and enjoying a beer or two together, so it was really nice of them to invite me and Eric to join them on this special day!
Leslie and Charles both attended Villanova and their ceremony was held at the chapel on campus. I had never been to the campus so it was really nice to finally see it.
Leslie looked so pretty and her dress was gorgeous. Like I can’t stop talking about it gorgeous.
Their reception was held at Greystone Lodge out near West Chester and was such a cool place for a reception.
Leslie even had a whole blogger crew and blogger table.
There was a cocktail hour then a sit down dinner out on the covered patio.
And then the best part, A PHOTOBOOTH! And what’s even better, the photobooth printed out two of each, one for you to keep and one for Leslie and Charles! We had a lot of fun in there!
On Sunday, Eric and I met some friends and went to the Piazza because we had heard there was a big adoption day event going on. The place was packed with people and animals and it was kind of awesome.
After that we headed over to the Punk Rock Flea Market. It’s a big event packed full of sweaty, smelly hipsters and punks and people sell all sorts of things, from clothes to records to cupcakes and so much more.
