The Busiest of Weekends

As I sit here to type this on Sunday night at 8pm, I can hardly keep my eyes open. We had such a busy weekend and I'm exhausted! The weather was beautiful...a sunny, breezy, 70 degrees both days. Perfect.

Saturday was spent running some much needed errands. I went to the doctor again and then we went to a million car dealerships (ok, maybe I'm exaggerating). We're both in the market for new cars soon-ish so we wanted to start looking. A couple test drives later, I came *this* close to buying a new Mazda Cx5 but decided to think it over a little longer {the cars salesmen loved us for that}. Of course, ice cream was for dinner. It was well deserved!
Chris test driving a Challenger. My Saturday outfit. Soft serve with LOTS of sprinkles.
Sunday was a beautiful day spent in DC! We managed to find street parking and ended up walking 6 miles all around the memorials and to lunch at District of Pi {AMAZING pizza and beer}

One of my favorite quotes by MLK

Jefferson
How lucky are we that DC is right in our backyard? I've lived in the DC area for 22 years of my life and I'm in awe every single time I'm down there. I just love it. It's beautiful on the gloomiest days and has this amazing, powerful energy. In our dream world, Chris will get a fancy lawyer job and we'll buy a multimillion dollar row-home in Georgetown. In the meantime, we're looking forward to getting a bike rack and hitting some trails around there this Spring/summer and only wishing it's where we lived.

How was your weekend?
Linking up with Sami!

  4. My teen and I ventured to DC last summer. It's one of my favorite places... She was a little confused by what the National Mall was though. She thought we were going shopping!
