Aquarium of the Pacific Night Dive

Earlier this month Leeann and I went to Night Dive at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. This was such a fun event! The Aquarium of the Pacific puts on this event three times a year. The event is 18+ (there's a bar for 21+) and there are food trucks, music from local bands, DJs spinning in the Aquarium’s galleries, and local artists sharing their collections. My favorite part was petting the stingrays. They swim right up to the top so you can pet them. We also saw a sleeping sea otter that was sucking its thumb. Nothing cuter than that! I could watch the jellyfish for hours-they are fascinating!

Tiny seahorse!

Annapolis Wedding

Earlier this month I headed east for a friend's wedding. H was a year ahead of me in elementary school and then we reconnected working together at a summer camp. My camp name was Pink and her camp name was Ariel :) I had booked my flights before I started school, not knowing what my work load would be like. Fortunately I was able to finish all of my reading on the plane and then typed everything out once I got to my hotel (I have to do outlines every week-they are the WORST!). Back to the wedding...
I flew into Baltimore Friday and then headed to Annapolis to check into my hotel. Fresh, warm cookies at night and free breakfast in the morning equals a good stay at Country Inn and Suites. There was a mall nearby so that was nice too-I did some shopping Saturday morning. The wedding was Saturday afternoon. The ceremony was at a cute little church called St. Margaret's. We then took shuttles to the reception. The reception was at the Sherwood Forest Clubhouse. Gorgeous location! The photo below doesn't do it justice-the clubhouse has a barn feel and was just so cozy and pretty-the lights, the big windows, beautiful!

Loved this nautical touch

I flew home early Sunday morning so it wasn't a long visit but I am so happy I could celebrate with the bride and groom. Congratulations H and J!
