Weekend Edition

The weather the past few days is what makes living in the DC area all year worth it. Sunny in the 60's and 70's is pure heaven!

To make it even better, I got to spend this past weekend with lots of people I love and don't get to see enough (including my husband). Seriously we just hit the 36 hour mark of time together for the month, and yes I'm counting sleep time.

Friday night we picked up friends in quaint Bethesda where I enjoyed some Hagen Daze Carmel ice cream ( not sure there is a better way to start the weekend).

We were up early on Saturday to have breakfast (sausage and cheese biscuits-I will make and share recipe soon) before heading to a friends family funeral. It was a beautiful ceremony, and inspirational to see the love and adoration the family had for their mother and grandmother.

Afterwards, I split ways with Josh and headed to Baltimore for some girl time with my besties! I was asked to bring dips to add to the game watching smorgasbord. I had elaborate plans, but decided to simplify things with a veggie platter, Carmel dip with apples, my friends simple taco dip and spinach dip. Did you notice the presence of fruits and veggies with all dips? I'm a health nut I tell ya! I had a great time with my friends, which took a bit of the sting LSU handed us, off. After the game, they pub crawled, but since I can't really pub or crawl-I headed back to Virginia for the night.

Bright and early Sunday I dropped Molly off at day care and we took our friends and house guests to our fab diner for breakfast. After a fun breakfast where everyone but me fixed their fantasy football teams for the day, I was off again to charm city. More fun with the besties, and a little window shopping.

Lacey took us on our first trip to a salvage shop. Housewerks, which was neat to look around.

After a fun day together we ended the night with dangerously delicious pie which is famous in Charm City, but the sweetest part of the day was spending time with my dear friends!

Lots of Love,

The weather was glorious this past weekend and I'm glad you got to get out and enjoy it.

It must have been nice to get some extra time in with your husband and see your besties too!
