Crave and Lost DC pics

18 Apr

 I went to Crave Dessert Bar tonight with my women’s networking group tonight and it was great! Sorry no pics, I forgot my camera in the car 😦 I had a Blueverry Bellini, Hummus Platter and two cupcakes—Coconut Dream and Cocoa Cocoa (yay for cupcakes being half off on Sunday!)

I do have a pic of the Kashi Go Lean Cookies N Cream bar I had on the way there though 🙂

13g of protein? Yes please!

And now for the last of the DC pictures that I got after I got my camera back yesterday (thanks again Monique if you’re reading this!)

Riley living the ruff life.

I was stoked to stop at 7-11 and get a slurpee! We don’t have 7-11 here in Charlotte and occasionally crave a slurpee.

We went to Bethesdaon Sunday morning and walked around that area. It was so cute with a bunch of restaurants, shops, etc.

We ate at Cosi for lunch, which is Panera-esque.

I had the Tuscan Steak Salad with whole wheat flatbread.

We then ventured to my coveted destination of Georgetown Cupcake. I’ve been hearing about this place for the past two years and was super psyched to try it. They just opened up in Bethesda recently which worked out perfectly.

 I got the Cherry Blossom cupcake and the Chocolate Mint cupcake plus a free Cookies N Cream cupcake.

 We walked around after that and went through this cute square with shops and restaurants.

We went to La Sandia at Tyson’s Corner for dinner.

I don’t know what this dish is that my friend got but it looked so good not to take a picture.

I had the fish tacos with refriend black beans and yellow rice.

I almost forgot about the gift my friend who I was staying with gave me…..

AND recipes of hers that she wrote out for me since she knows I love to cook 🙂

I absolutely love it!!! Thanks again friend for taking the time to write out all of those recipes, I will definitely be using 🙂

On a final note, where the eff did this wknd go? I feel like I didn’t even have a wknd, oi.

Sunday Funday

18 Apr

Some of you may have noticed that I didn’t post pictures from dinner last night. Why you ask? Because I had a date last night. And it was a first date so I really didn’t feel like whipping out my camera because they could have made it awkward 🙂 Anyways, I’ve been talking to this dude online for the past two wks and he seemed pretty cool so I decided why not?

We went to Encore which is a nice restaurant I’ve been wanting to check out for some time. I had the Pan Seared Tilapia with jasmine rice and seasoned vegetables. One of the best pieces of fish I’ve had in awhile! I think it went pretty well, good conversation throughout the meal then we had a couple of beers afterwards. I finally got home around 1230A and passed out from lack of sleep during the day and all the fun activities. So yay date 🙂

I slept in until 10A which was sooooo nice since I wake up early during the weekend. I had intentions of making an omelet with onions, cheese and avocado but it somehow turned out like this

Ugly yet delicious. Nothing wrong with that.

I have absolutely no meals for the week so I got working on pierogies since there’s none left from my last batch.

The potatoes with cheese and onions

The dough (which was way stickier than last time I made pierogies, anyone have any thoughts why or what I can add to make it less sticky?)

After boiling them (I made 13 with that little ball o’dough!)

I went to get a much-needed pedicure afterwards. I was super proud of myself since I didn’t get red this time like all the pedicures I’ve had and went with OPI’s “You’re a Pisa Work”

Target was the next spot and I went with the sole intention of just getting aluminum foil but made the mistake of wondering over to the clearance rack in the accessories section and found this beauty 🙂

 And how adorable is the inside?

I came home and got some Lincoln love

Then made a turkey and cheese sandwich on a Thomas Whole Wheat Bagel Thin with a side of honeydew

I’m going to pop in Couples Retreat soon and then get ready to head to Crave Dessert Bar for dinner and drinks with my women’s networking group. Never been there—excited 🙂 And people who say Sunday is a day of relaxation? Liars, I tell you.
