Heat Wave

Summer has arrived and so has the heat! Yesterday temperatures reached the mid 90s and today the high is 101! Talk about a heat wave. Instead of sweltering in the city, I would much rather be here:

Having some of this:
Watermelon soaked in tequila with salt.
Hope everyone is staying cool and hydrated.

Weekend Recap

Last Friday, I met some friends near U Street for happy hour and a quick bite to eat. We then headed to the U Street Music Hall to see Eli Paperboy Reed. Even though he isn't super well known, he is a great entertainer. Here is a video of one of his songs:

On Saturday, we celebrated Sabrina's engagement with a bridal shower. We spent the day snacking on delicious (and dairy free) foods, playing games, and loving on Sabrina. One of the games included making a wedding dress out of toilet paper. Here is a picture of the winning team minus the veil and bouquet.
TTF for the win.

Weekend Recap

It was nice to be back in the city for the weekend. On Saturday, I spent the day doing laundry and cleaning house before going on a long walk. My new favorite path includes walking the Georgetown Canal and up the Exorcist Stairs before heading back to my house. What are the Exorcist Stairs you might ask? Well, they consist of 75 stairs that are the equivalent of a five story building that connect M Street and Prospect Street. They were also where part of the Exorcist was filmed, hence the name. 
Talk about a killer workout!
Saturday night, we went out to celebrate Sarah's birthday at a mexican restaurant in Arlington.
Happy Birthday Sarah!
Sunday, we added to our living room by picking up a love seat from a friend who is moving.

Thanks Jean Cecil!
Sunday night, Lucy, Jean Cecil, and I walked down to Volta Park for a Concert in the Park sponsored by the Georgetown Citizens Association. Lucy and I came across one of their concerts a few weeks ago when we picked up our new rug on an evening walk. Apparently, they put these concerts on throughout the summer. We went back this weekend since one of my favorite DC bands, The Morrison Brothers Band, was playing. It was the perfect night to sit outside, sip some wine, and listen to music.

I was on a role with blog posts until I went on vacation two weeks ago so here is a little recap for you.

I flew home for the weekend to celebrate Lightsey and Kevin's wedding. It really was a magical weekend and it was so special to be a part of it. I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures!
After the wedding, I stayed in South Carolina for the rest of the week and headed to the beach with my family. It was so nice not to have to catch a flight right after the wedding. We spent the week catching up, taking long walks on the beach, eating mom's delicious food, and celebrating my birthday. I wish every week was vacation week!
