Hi friends! How was your weekend?

Ours was a pretty good one – the weather was unbelievably beautiful (but, um, made me slightly concerned about global warming?) and luckily we got to spend a lot of time outside on Saturday. Here’s a recap!

Friday

Friday night was dedicated to watching the Yankee’s playoff game. Fabio picked up some pizza from our favorite take-out spot, Wise Guys, and then we enjoyed it while watching the game. When we were done eating, I painted my nails and sipped on some wine.

Jack watched the game with us too. 🙂

It was a nice night, and the Yankees won!

Saturday

On Saturday morning, we headed into D.C. to celebrate two of our friends tying the knot! They held an intimate celebration at The Bird, which was a cute spot in Logan Circle I hadn’t been to before.

My forever wedding date!

P.S. – I wore this dress from Lulus and I thought it worked well for a fall wedding. 🙂

We were joined by a bunch of our close friends from college, which was so nice. It was great catching up with everyone!

The space was half indoors and half outdoors, which I loved. We wound up eating inside, and then hung out outside for a while mingling!

The food was also delicious – I got the chicken and waffles. Yummmm!!

I also loved the details they included – like little white pumpkins covered in succulents and take-home mugs with their last name printed on them.

And we had gelato and cupcakes for dessert!

I was stuffed so I wasn’t able to finish everything, but it tasted SO good! I definitely recommend The Bird if you’re in the area.

After the official celebration was over, we all headed over to Wet Dog Tavern to keep the party going. This was another fun outdoor bar that I hadn’t been to before, but would absolutely recommend. It had such a fun atmosphere! We spent the rest of the afternoon drinking outside with our friends, and it was such a perfect way to spend the day.

Our buddy Hershman!

Eventually, we headed back home to watch the last Yankee playoff game. They sadly did not win, and Fabio was SO disappointed. Poor guy. Maybe next year!

Sunday

Sunday began with meal planning, and then Fabio and I headed off to the grocery store.

Unfortunately, I spent most of the rest of the day working, but I took a break at 4:30 to start making dinner (we’re having meatloaf tonight! I don’t know if we like meatloaf, but I guess we’ll find out!). And now I’m relaxing while it finishes in the oven.

Work is probably going to be crazy again this week, but I’ll try to pop in again if I can. Hope you have a great Monday!

Question of the day: Meatloaf lover or hater?

Fabio claims he’s a hater, but I’m trying to win him over. I’m the least picky eater on the planet.

  1. Friday nights in with wine + DIY manicures is my heaven. That’s typically how I spend my Sunday evenings! Also, that cupcake with the little Oreo on top is calling my name!
