Hi friends & family!
I'm a weekend behind but wanted to share my Washington, D.C trip! I was out there during the week for work and stayed the weekend for fun (what's a business trip if it's not fun, right?). I've been to D.C several times and it just doesn't get old. I'm in love with D.C, I would totally live there. In a freaking heart beat.
If you ever visit D.C, I highly recommend the Night Tour on the double-decker buses. I had never done that before but one of my colleagues from the work event wanted to and ended up tagging along. It was about $45 and totally worth it. It was about 3 hours long, you learned so much from the guide and was able to go around some distance during that time. Loved seeing the city through a different view.
I'm a huge brunch connoisseur; I think most of you know that. My friend Monika, who lives in D.C, took me out to brunch on Saturday at Founding Farmers. I've heard of them and was so excited. The food was amazing. I don't even know how to explain how delicious it was without getting sad that it's so far away from me. We had some beignets with three dipping sauces to start, some Intelligentsia french-pressed coffee and I got the stuffed Banana Foster french toast which was to die for! Monika had the blueberry pancakes (sounds simple but out of this world!) and shared some hash browns (soooooooo tasty).
Since I've been there so many times, I didn't end up doing too much touristy stuff. Monika and I visited the Air & Space Museum since that was the final Smithsonian I hadn't visited yet. We hit a bar, snacked on some falafels...so much fun! Thanks, Monika - it was great seeing you and catching up! :)
Like I said, loooooooooooooove D.C. Can't wait to go back!
|I got picked up at my hotel (for the work week) by a limo to get to The InterContinental Hotel in D.C! Fancy!|
|The historical Willard InterContinental Hotel|
|My hotel was so cute! I felt like a princess from the 1800's.|
|The 'back' of the White House. There's my friend David taking a selfie, haha.|
|Love the monument. You can see D.C so perfectly from the base of it.|
|The 'front' of the White House. Obama was home!|
|The Capitol Building. The lights nor the flags were up, which means that Congress is not in session. #FunFact|
|My FAVORITE in D.C. The Lincoln Memorial.|
