Day-cation in the Country

J and I decided to take a spontaneous drive.  With all of the craziness that has been happening lately in our lives, between apartment craziness, job craziness, family craziness, even city craziness with three blazing fires in one week, we were in desperate need of a "day-cation".  (Did I just make up a word???)  We spent our afternoon/evening in the artsy Lambertville, NJ and then walked over the narrow bridge into New Hope, PA.  We had both been there numerous times before, but it was nice to go together for the first time.  What a change from New York City!  The place was practically dead!  It doesn't truly come alive until the spring/summer time, so we had a nice and quiet evening.  We finally settled on this place called Bitter Bob's BBQ and Comfort Food.  That sounded about right.  After all, we've been hitting the gym pretty hard (sorta... ha) and grilling veggies for dinner (kinda... ha ha), so what better way to celebrate than with good ol' fashion R-I-B-S?  ;)  We had a real feast!  Exactly the comfort food that we needed!  The ribs weren't the absolute greatest, but they got the job done with two very different sauces to keep your taste buds interested.  The ribs also came with an amazing side of sweet potato fries!  After a night in the country we headed home, and I have to say, it was nice to come home to the chaos of the city, fire truck sirens and all.
