Weekend Recap--sorority style
So my weekend in DC was amazing! I love seeing old friends and catching up with what everyone is doing and how their post college lives are going. My body may still be recovering from the large quantities of alcohol imbibed or the very late hours kept but it was sooo worth it. A few rounds of superlatives, shopping sprees, my first! dirty martini, and hours of laughter were just what I needed. Friday night we were low key and went out to dinner in DC and came back for pjs and superlatives (to be explained later). Saturday was really busy, we did the American History museum--hello first ladies and Julia Child's kitchen, then we ate lunch at this delicious spot, http://www.chefgeoff.com/, and shopped around Georgetown for a while. After going home to change and relax for a while, we went back out to Georgetown for dinner and bars. Sunday we had brunch at the Eastern market and shopped around all of the vendors for a few hours--it was such a beautiful weekend, though it felt more like October than almost December! I also miss having all of my girlfriends so close but we'll definitely be reunioning again soon.
I'm ready for Thanksgiving break--though I can't believe it's already here! I seriously need a few days off of work to relax and regroup. We went out to pick up the Thanksgiving wine yesterday and I'm planning on making this for the big day:
Barefoot Contessa's Pumpkin Mousse Parfaits, delicious!
