DC Recap

12 Apr

 I got back from DC this afternoon and took a much-needed nap. I had such a wonderful time with my friends and feel like we did thousands of things but didn’t hit everything up. I don’t think I will be moving to DC though as I hate the Metro, Beltway and the traffic. I think I would seriously kill someone and I really don’t want to go to prison. I took thousands of pictures but will highlight the fun stuff…..and of course, THE FOOD!!

Friday we were just running around and shopping….nothing wrong with that. I started the day with a sandwich thin with peanut butter, dried cranberries and banana with a side of grapes (and two cups of coffee of course)

We went to this thrift store called Unique Thriftstore which was half an indoor flea market and half thrift store. It smelled like mothballs but got some awesome buys

Don’t worry, I didn’t purchase this beauty….or get lice (I think)

Some other buys include


After shopping, we ate at Lebanese Taverna for lunch.

I had the Traditional Mezza Platter which included hummos, tabouleh, baba ghanouge, a kibbeh, a grape leaf & two falafels.

I’ve never had Lebanese before but this was freakin amazing! I need to eat more Lebanese food this kept me full for so long.

We walked over to Whole Foods and could barely contain myself!

 After that, we went to Ross and TJ Maxx then I came back and took a nap while my friend hung out (she doesn’t like naps which I am still trying to wrap my mind around that notion).

For dinner, we met up with one of our sorority sisters for dinner at La Tasca in Rockville

Hello Sangria, I shall drink you….or two.

We all split a tapas special they had 10 for $60, not too bad for three people. We didn’t even finish it all!

Warning: Food porn below


Great minds think alike–we all had on black jackets and yellow purses. We looked like Steeler fans or bumble bees!

After that we headed to Buffalo Wild Wings (whose colors are black and yellow…freaky) for beers but we were so full from dinner we didn’t stay too long.

We got back home and hung out with the doggies

There is more of DC to come and you will soon see why it requires a post of its own……
