And another gorgeous weekend came to an end. However, this weekend we found the perfect balance of time with friends, and time with each other. And a huge shout out to all the mothers – we hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day!
Our weekend began on Thursday, when we hosted a Happy Hour at Flat Iron in Old Town. Members of our March Madness pool were in attendance, as well as a few new faces. Not only were we held up in traffic and a few minute late to our own shindig, but we forgot to pull out the camera and snap a few pictures from the evening. #EPICFAIL. We are hoping to get another group together next month in DC as well as Alexandria, so be on the lookout for news on that…
Friday night Scott and I decided that pizza on the rooftop was the perfect way to relax after a busy week, and so we ordered Bugsy’s and just sat in the evening sun and enjoyed each other’s company. We also capped off the evening in bed watching Romeo and Juliet, which I am in the middle of teaching for the dozenth time. I always love it, and this movie pick was actually Scott’s (I think he is tiring of the one-woman show I give daily of the play and he needed the film to drown me out…)
Saturday we were up early with Miah for her acupuncture treatment, which she tolerates so well. Poor kid. And because Ivan is always left at home on our days to the vet, we decided to plan something special and meet up with our friends and their puppy for a play date. This was our first time meeting Lindsay, who pens the blog With Amour, and her fiance Jake. They were darling, and their new pup Quincy allowed me an hour of rubbing puppy belly and relishing in cute puppy hopping. Ivan feigned disinterest at first, but by the end wouldn’t let Quincy out of his sight. Needless to say, he was exhausted for the rest of the day (after Miah gave him hell for cheating on her while out….)
Saturday afternoon we were fortunate to meet up with a dear friend of mine from Hampton Roads. We met at Tortilla Coast in Capitol South to indulge in margaritas, guacamole, and great conversation. I miss my friends in Hampton, and any chance to catch up is greatly welcomed.
Saturday evening was incredibly low key, which turned out to be a blessing because I woke up sick on Sunday – AGAIN. Sunday we already had reservations for brunch at one of our favorites – Redline in DC. Brunch was everything we hoped it would be, and it gave us a chance to reconnect with some of our friends at Redline as well as indulge on what is always incredible food. Post on this to come…
By the time we got home from brunch, I was fighting a fever and body aches, so into bed I went while Scott rummaged through DVDs and dug out Pearl Harbor. Good movie, but what’s with the love triangle??? Totally disturbed me. Sunday night was much the same, with a little chicken soup thrown in for good healing measure. And of course – The Mentalist. Cheers to another season in the works!
Other than battling the 2nd cold in a month, it was a wonderful weekend full of meeting new people and enjoying the beautiful spring weather that has now come in full force to DC. Cheers to a quick work week!
