1. My dad was in town all weekend. We share a love of two main things, the first being eating delicious food (especially anything Italian or chocolate). So, we ate.
Pizza at Il Canale at Georgetown, aka the best traditional Italian pizza I’ve had in D.C. so far.
This guy had fresh buffalo mozzarella, eggplant, mushrooms, zucchini, and artichoke hearts, all on top of the softest, most perfect crust ever. It seriously reminded me of that amazing pie Penpal and I enjoyed in Epcot this past July.
A dark chocolate cupcake from Sprinkles, aka a blast from my west coast past.
Obviously we both hated it.
So what if I was the only person outside showing my knees. I’m embracing the option of dresses and shorts for as long as humanly possible before it’s necessary to embark on the wearing-12 layers-on-each-half-of-my-body adventure I like to call winter on the east coast..
My grandma had Alzheimer’s, so it is a cause that is extra close to my heart. Although can we talk about how irritating slow walkers are sometimes? Slow runners don’t bother me in the least, but slow walkers.. forget it.
4. Last night I attended a performance of the Great Gatsby ballet at the Kennedy Center with my friend Justine. Because we’re fancy locals like that.
I’m a major English major nerd and love this book, so I was obviously ALL over the idea of getting tickets when Justine suggested it. Plus I like to pretend I could have been a bigtime dancer if I hadn’t quit ballet and tap back when I was 8. I mean, probably, right?
I’m a horrible shopper and although I tried them on at the store last week, I didn’t actually buy them til this weekend, online. Want to be my personal shopper? Please?
Ugh, I can’t even believe I just wrote that, being I’m a diehard desert climate loyalist, and prefer temperatures so hot you want to stick your head in the oven for relief. Don’t tell anyone please.. this girl’s already on to me though.
If I read it, it has to be true, right? Dear Shape magazine, Penpal thanks you.
Is it just me or are you seeing my shoe collection a lot today?
9. With this new job, I get to work from home half the week. Clearly I’m being very productive.
What are your Monday things?
