What a week! Packing officially began last weekend and our apartment quickly became dominated by boxes. Though we escaped for an incredible happy hour at Carmine’s (thanks Jill Collins!!) and for a DC date night, most of the time was spent emptying closets. Though it has been a flurry of activity, we still found time to pull our favorite articles and blog posts, from all of you, for Friday Minutes.
Here’s a list of things you should know:
Western New York Minutes:
From the Orleans Hub: The Orleans County Chamber of Commerce just announced their annual business awards and we were thrilled to see several Medina, NY recipients.

DC Area Blogs:
After hearing about Whaley’s brunch menu soft opening, Bad Sentences (Kacy) rushed right over. Here is her recap.
The Bitches Who Brunch have made a great sell on why we all should be heading to Tysons for a spa day.
