We spent the weekend at a friends house on the Jersey Shore to celebrate Joe’s 30th Birthday!
We got a late start after work on Friday and had to make a pit stop at his parents house to pick up the surfboards.
By the time we got to Jacquie’s house it was almost midnight. We stayed up for a little while chatting with everyone, but finally called it a night.
The next morning I woke Joe up with a birthday muffin!
Instead we hung around by the pool. It was really humid, so it was nice to be in the water.
The boys shucked some clams. 300 to be exact.
Chef Matt made antipasti platters for lunch.
And he planned a huge seafood feast for dinner.
Everything was so delicious, but in the middle of dinner a huge storm came and we got soaked. Nobody wanted to leave the food, so we just opened the umbrellas and waited it out. It stopped eventually 🙂
As it got darker, we moved the party inside. I made Joe a skydiving monkey cake, which was really good, but barely got eaten because everyone was so full of fish!We stayed up late again and birthday debauchery ensued, but it was a really fun time.
The previous days rain seemed to have killed all the humidity, because it was actually pretty chilly out! We didn’t stay long; we were both hungry and cold so we headed to Surf Taco for lunch.
I had one mahi mahi taco and one shrimp taco. Holy yum!
It was an awesome weekend of family and friends and a great way to celebrate Joe’s b-day. I still need to fit in the weekends 12 mile run, but I have that planned for Wednesday morning..I am loving the cooler temperatures!
Crazy busy week ahead as we leave for Ireland on Friday!!!!!!!
How was your weekend? Do anything exciting?
