Happy Weekend!

30 Apr

Do something fun! I hope to enjoy some wine, mountains, and sun with my hubby and dog…maybe I’ll see you at our local Virginia vineyards!

Sept. 2009 trip

Last time we went to a local vineyard was our anniversary weekend in September – and I had just gotten my wisdom teeth removed! It’s been too long. One of the best things about DC is how many day trip options there are – and I know that MJD and I don’t take enough advantage of the area. I’m sensing a trip to Rock Creek Park next weekend (or maybe we should do that tomorrow instead!).

My guys

Also, keep your fingers crossed for me on Monday when I start a new job! I’m trying to be chill about the whole thing, but any positive vibes Monday morning would be greatly appreciated! The more I think about it, the more I lean toward the wine this particular Saturday!

Beer. Food. A Visit from Mom and Dad

30 Sep

I need some help picking a restaurant for late October when my parents visit. I already decided that one night we’ll try Palena because I hear people talk about it all the time and have yet to try it. But the second night, I’d prefer something a little more low-key and with a great beer selection.

We usually always go to either Belga Cafe or Brasserie Beck for the beers and delicious food, but I’d love to try something different. We could always do Capital City for pre-dinner drinks, and a non-beer focused restaurant for dinner, but if any one has suggestions on a place that has both, please let me know!

It doesn’t really matter what area of the city, as long as the spot has good food and a lot of good beer!

Here’s a picture from their last visit. We are so fun and need another great new place to try!


No Rainbows Without Rain

11 Sep

Today has been yet another rainy day – end to a rainy week – hopefully not the start of a rainy weekend.

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed about it, overslept, and then got caught in the rain for almost half an hour waiting for the bus. Not a great start to the day.

But instead of concentrating on that I tried to be positive and remembered that a few weeks ago, after a rain storm, I saw a rainbow! And here’s the poor quality blackberry picture of it:


Hope your weekend includes a few rainbows!

It’s Almost Friday

14 May

Let’s act crazy! Artie has been a little down lately, fighting off some tummy troubles, and we think suffering from allergies. So, we were super excited to see him get so crazy the other day trying to kill this sock. Hopefully, he’s feeling like himself again.

Have a great weekend!

Good night. These pictures were taken one after the other. It’s crazy how the sky can look so different when you’re standing in the same spot,  at the same time, and just turning to face in different directions!
