A Cut Above the Rest


Over the weekend, a friend hosted a surf n turf party. Since he’s a Massachusetts native, I knew he would have a different take on the seafood that I grew up loving, and he makes what just might be the best steak in the city so I was definitely excited despite the heat!

No wonder I was excited!

This was all that was left after a plate full of shrimp. Even these didn’t last too much longer.

How cute is that pillow?


Weekend Roundup

Some presents were left for me by the ASOS fairy!

We went out for a low-key going away party Saturday night. I absolutely used it as an excuse to wear my new items!


Here’s a close-up of my new bracelet and belt.

After nearly seven years of searching, I have finally found a place in DC that sells my favorite drink on the planet- Cheerwine!

The Southwestern burger at BGR in DuPont.

Perfection, bottled.

 I met two of my favorite ladies for lunch on Sunday, and we ended up at BGR relaxing over burgers and Cheerwine before heading out for some fro-yo and siting in some sunshine for a few hours. It was a wonderful way to spend the last afternoon of my weekend. Of course Game of Thrones and Mad Men took up the last few hours!


How was your weekend?
