Weekend Shots

me and cCm at the Georgetown VV
I posted a little about my trip to D.C. previously, but I wanted to share some other fun shots! We went sight-seeing, we ate great food and did lots of shopping. Of course no trip was complete without a stop to Vineyard Vines. Not to mention a stop at J.McLaughlin where Stephanie at Prepfection and I literally ran into each other! It is too funny that I saw her there because that is where we met back in November!
One night we didn't have reservations and it was getting late. We stayed at the Mayflower and wanted something that we could walk to. Well, we ended up at the Daily Grill. It was fabulous. It honestly might have been one of the best meals I have ever had in my entire life. Not to mention our server was excellent and made for an even better dining experience. If you are ever in the D.C. area, I highly recommend the Daily Grill. There is one in Georgetown and then one near Dupont Circle and they even offer take-out. We got several appetizers and my main course was the Salmon Farfalle pasta. I dream about this meal.
We went to several of the Smithsonians. My favorite is the air and space. As you can see from above, cCm loved it too.
We got a private tour of the FBI in Quantico. It was really need to see the makings of an FBI agent. We even got to do a shooting simulator!
We were major tourists and saw the White House decked out for Christmas. I had to take the requisite picture, I mean when in Rome, right?
Of course no trip was complete without a late lunch a the Tombs. They were also decked out in their Christmas decorations. Where do you go when you are in D.C. ? Have a fabulous day!

DC is great! the Holocaust museum is the saddest place ever though...good gravy. makes the tears flow.

I had to notice in your picture of your food the straw paper that was on the plate...I hope that was from you and not the kitchen! glad you had fun!

I love DC! It looks like you had a great time, especially by the looks of the Vineyard Vines hats! The Smithsonians are some of my favorite places in the world. There is always so much to learn! Have a great day!
