Now, I know you must be thinking, why would you get a manicure this early, it will surly chip and fade before next Friday. Not so fast my friends, it's a new system called Axxium Gel by OPI. I read about it on Lis Loves Blog, and decided I must try it for myself!
I can tell you one person who I'm sure will be joining me!
Ok so those are clams, but you get the idea.
This week is also DC's famed Restaurant Week were we are able to go to wonderful establishments and have a three course meal for a set price. $2o.10 for lunch and $35.10 for dinner. This gives us a chance to explore new places at great prices.
On Sunday I will be joining a group of my sorority sisters from UF at BlackSalt for our monthly brunch. I feel so lucky to have such dear and wonderful sisters that I share so many great memories with living and working in the same city as me! After brunch we are planning on touring the National Cathedral.
Josh and I were going to make a day out of Sunday and go to Willow for dinner, buuuut we only get one free day a week. Instead of indulging on Sunday we will be able to celebrate Jack's birthday with cake on Saturday and have a nice dinner with Josh's work team and their wives Saturday night.
We brought in 2010 with Adam and Sam in NYC. They hosted us in their awesome apartment, and we had a blast exploring the Big Apple with them. We saw all the sites, ate at great restaurants, cheered the Gators to victory at the Cornerstone Tavern, and watched the ball drop in our PJ’s with chocolate fondue and champaign!
A few days later it was time to celebrate my big 3-0! Our friends joined us for a great night full of merriment, cheese, wine and cupcakes! I couldn’t imagine celebrating this milestone with more wonderful people!
Monday - Asian Lettuce Wraps
Tuesday - BBQ Salmon, Jalapeno Cheese Grits and Asparagus
Wednesday - Chicken Parmesan with Baby Spinach

Here is a link to my favorite soup, which I will be having for lunch with a lean protein this week.

I discovered Spark Recipes this weekend and LOVE it. You can type in any recipe and it will give you the nutritional information. You can then make online cookbooks to store your recipes and share then with others on the site. It's really great!
