NJ Weekend

   This past weekend we were in New Jersey for our friends Nick and Suzie's wedding. I always love when we have weddings in NJ because we get to see family and friends and spend the weekend in our hometown. 

    Friday night when we got into town I had dinner with my parents while DFH attended a beer tasting with friends.  Later that night I met up DFH and our friends BHB and JLM for drinks. 

   When we go home we have a couple local favorite restaurants that we have to hit up. One of them being the Bagel Club for their porkroll egg and cheese breakfast sandwich.  
   After breakfast we did a little shopping at the outlets before it was time for our all time favorite pizza at Viramis. (Obviously eating is the highlight of our weekend). I always get their salad pizza and DFH got their tomato basil and a slice of plain.  How I wish I could eat Viramis everyday.  Luckily, we had a Giftcard that was expiring so we ordered two pies to take home. We had planned to freeze one, however by Sunday night the pies were pretty much gone, we just cannot resist the deliciousness. 

     Saturday night was Nick and Suzie's wedding. The ceremony was held outside in a gazebo. They asked us to turn our cellphones off so I do not have any pictures, but the gazebo was so pretty lit up by lanterns and candles.  

DFH and I during the cocktail hour. 

    The wedding reception was held at the Cock N' Bull a colonial themed restaurant in the cutest town which was perfect for their rustic fall theme.  I loved the centerpieces. 

The picture quality is awful I am hoping my iPhone 6 will take better pictues.  Anyways, the bride and groom during their first dance. 

Our good friend Luke was the best man. 

     I have known Nick and his family since I was in 3rd grade so it was great to chat with his family who I hadn't seen in years.  The mother son dance was so sweet. 

    We had a great night catching up with friends. Sunday we got up and hit the road with DFH's grandparent's grandfather clock from the 1940's in tow. It was a tight fit with both of us, our suitcases, and the clock, but so glad we made it work.   I am in love.  

Have a great week!


  1. I love your blog so I can keep up with you from afar!! That pizza looks amazing...thin, crispy, yum. The wedding looks beautiful, and y'all make a great looking couple! And finally, LOVE the clock! Even better that's it's an heirloom, so special!

  2. Sounds like you had a fun weekend. Your food pictures make my mouth water, I can't tell you the last time I had a bagel sandwich and now I'm craving one.

  3. I've been staring at that bagel for 5 minutes!

  4. Glad you had a fun weekend! I'm originally a Jersey girl, too - which part of the state are you from?
