Weekend Trip to New Hampshire and Maine

We took a long weekend trip to New Hampshire and Maine. Flying into New Hampshire we visited a long time friend that I hadn't seen in over 3 years who now has two cute, hysterical boys. We then drove up to Portland, Maine to enjoy it's "best foodie small town" status and visit a colleague that had just moved up there. The highlight was probably the gorgeous bike around Peaks Island. I had a feeling I would fall in love with Maine and am hopefully going to be able to get back up there again sometime soon to do some more exploring.

Birthday Weekend

I had a really great birthday weekend. 
It started off with me playing an extra in a friends indie-movie. On the way there I passed this building which I really love. 

On my birthday I made Memphis style ribs. They took a long time but tasted even sweeter as we watched the Phillies victory. 

The next day Mom and Eleanor came to visit. We went to the Wharton Escherick Museum in Valley Forge. It is one of the coolest small museums and the weather was absolutely beautiful. 

Afterwards we had lunch in Phoenixville, a cute little town. We at at the Iron Hill Brewery which was pretty good. 

Then we went to our favorite store: Terrain. They were having a fall apple festival. 

We had a disappointing dinner but the atmosphere and company were great. 

Sunday we didn't do much but did watch the Phillies win again.
Cole Hamels is so dreamy.
