A Jersey house party and a great Sunday

Last weekend we took a little drive up to Neshanic Station, New Jersey to have a little cookout and campfire with some friends that we haven't seen in a while. It's amazing that you can drive less than an hour outside of Philadelphia and feel like you are a million miles away. The area is absolutely gorgeous, the trees are turning colors, the rolling hills are breathtaking and the are farm animals at every turn. We stayed at Nicole's parent's house which is so gorgeous and cozy. 

This is my pal Nicole, cooking us up some delicious food for dinner. We spent the night hanging out by the fire and playing some lawn games. The favorite game (of course) was Hammerschlagen, which Nicole had learned about at my family's annual Oktoberfest party. Yay, hammerschlagen has been introduced to Jersey! 

The next morning we drove over to Lambertville for some brunch at the Full Moon Cafe, which has an impressive eggs benedict menu. I went with a benedict that was served on a croissant. BryGuy had the crab benedict and our friends both had a version made with bacon, yummmm. 

After brunch we strolled through beautiful Lambertville and crossed the Delaware River to get to charming New Hope, Pennsylvania.  

We checked out a few boutiques and antique shops and soaked in the crisp fall air. 

After some leisurely window shopping through Lambertville and New Hope we parted ways with our friends and headed on the road back to Philadelphia. Until we saw this sign... 
We pass the New Hope Winery every time we take the trip between New York and Philly and we always say we should stop. Well this time, we gave it a try. They had some delicious wines, my favorite was a spiced wine flavored with orange peel and cloves and was served warm. For $10 you get to try five different wines and you get a souvenir wine glass to take with you. 

It was really such a nice weekend. It's always good to spend some quality, unrushed time with friends and just explore new towns and try new things. 


  1. Marissa you're a wonderful photographer! :]

    1. Thanks bioartist! I'm slowly but surely working on improving my photography. I purchased a dslr over the summer (along with a dummies book) so I'm trying to figure it out on my own, but I think I'll eventually take a photography class to hone my skills.

      Thanks for reading and commenting!

  5. Additionally, in a slightly different implementation, some of the world's major race tracks, that is race car racing, have also installed Jersey Barriers as a way of protecting the racers and anyone else involved in the sporting event, namely spectators.cheap custom t-shirts

  10. They simply show support for the group they're rooting for. A few of us need the valid cut pullover that the players wear on the ice; that is in case you're a no-nonsense fan. Basketball jerseys

  11. Uh F-Zero was the TITS in 91, Yoshis Island, ZeldaLink to Past/ChronoTrigger, Mario Cart/SuperMarioWorld & Turtles inTime OMG, fantastic games. SF2 was the game that started al the fighting craze... PERIOD. Mortal Kompats don't belong on this list, as they did nothing for gaming other than the rating system & Ultra Hype that evaporates after a wek of playing unlike SF, also pick one of EarthWorm Jims not 1&2, they're almost identical. Also StarFox was just good, i bought it, got boring in a couple of weeks.

  12. Link to the past 20-30 hours? Nonsense. Even on your first playthrough not knowing where anything is MIGHT take 8-10 hours if you're really taking your time. The game can be beat in 3-4 hours with all collectibles and you don't need to be some masterful speed runner to manage that. I was doing it as a kid and I'm not very good at video games. It's an amazing game but I often see it described like it's some sort of mega epic when it's something most average people could clear in an afternoon or two.

  13. I visited various sites but the audio quality for audio songs existing at
    this site is really wonderful.

  14. A Link to the Past should not be #1, in my opinion. The concept of the Zelda games is not suitable for everyone. I had to use walkthroughs for Ocarina of Time, and now I'm wondering why it's suddenly regarded as one of the greatest games ever, especially with all the hullabaloo about the Water Temple. Super Mario World on the other hand, has a easy to use/understand concept of just making it to the end of a level, with no frustrating no-hints given puzzles that you can learn from and not get frustrated with from getting lost, and again, was a pack-in game. Arguably the best of all games packaged with systems.
