Weekend Wonders

This weekend I was so busy I don't even know where to begin!Friday bEw and I drove into DC and stayed at his house for the weekend!
First we met some of bEw's friends at Policy for a drink. It was a really neat atmosphere but we left after one drink because it was a little too wild.
We headed into Georgetown for Friday night and stopped into Mr. Smiths, the piano bar, and had fun singing a long to a lot of good songs. Then we headed over to The Guards to meet up with my bff from high school, eFm! I was SO happy I got a chance to see her! Then we ended the night with pizza at Avocado... we just stumbled in and ordered but once I tasted the pizza, I was in heaven! It tasted just like my favorite Pittsburgh pizza place-- I couldn't believe it!
The piano player at Mr. Smiths was great. He played everything from Dixie Land Delight to Frank Sinatra!
 The next day we shopped Wisconsin and M. I pretty much wanted to buy everything in every store. bEw loved the Vineyard Vines whale heads and wore it around for a good 20 minutes.
Taste of Georgetown was going on and we had to check it out so we headed over to the booths and tasted some awesome stuff. One ticket got you one tasting and the tastings were very generous. My favorite tasting?
Serendipity's frozen hot chocolate! So yummy-- it almost tasted like a chocolate milkshake but something was different about it and I can't put my finger on it!
The best part of Taste of Georgetown was the wine/beer/liquor tasting tents. It was fun to sample different things that you wouldn't normally buy/order. 
But, all in all, the best part of the day, and really the entire weekend was being with so many fun people!
 That night, we had dinner in Old Town Alexandria and then went back to Georgetown for another night out. We started off at Rugby. I always love visiting Rugby-- the decor is super preppy. I wore my Annie Griffin dress and got tons of compliments. I think I need to get another one of her pieces. After Rugby, we headed to George for a drink. I really liked that atmosphere as well.
Then we made it to Adams Morgan... Needless to say, after being in heels all weekend my feet were absolutely killing me. So much to blog about last weekend-- I told you I was busy!!! More to come tomorrow! Have a fabulous day!

Looks like you had a wonderful weekend! I am loving that sassy pink dress!! So cute!! I have always wanted to spend time in DC. The only time I have been was for the First Lady's Luncheon and presidential inaugurations! I'll be up there this time next year for all of the fun election/presidential festivities though... so maybe I'll get to enjoy myself around town!
