Weekend Recap

Well that was a whirlwind of a weekend! I have a ridiculously busy week ahead, so I'm just going to let the pictures speak for themselves. Hope y'all had a fab one too!

Trying to convince friends to come out in their green dresses.

Best response ever. 
I'm also coming to realize that I need to upgrade the iphone to get better front camera quality.

Happy Monday

So... I'm still trying to figure out what to talk about on this blog. Should I do make up Mondays? or just talk about what I did all weekend? oh.. or maybe a recipe? I'm still not sure, but for today I'm going to give you a weekend recap, because it was pretty awesome.

Friday I got to leave work a little early (a whole 45 minutes) and went to a MARCH MADNESS party with some of my old co-workers. It was pretty awesome, but probably would have been better had I had any allegiance to the teams playing (Missouri and Norfolk St.), but it was an epic game, and the beginning of a series of major upsets that killed my bracket (Kentucky is my final pick, go SEC!). After a few complimentary beverages I headed home to get ready to hit the town. My roommie KJ had a few friends visiting her for the weekend so once they got home and dropped their stuff we headed out for dinner and a few cocktails at Oyamel. If you have ever met me you know that I am obsessed with Top Chef. Honestly, one of my favorite things about living in DC is being able to hit up all the restaurants of the Top Chef Alum. Jose Andres is a former Top Chef Master's contestant, frequent Judge on Top Chef and employer of sever Top Chef Alum. He's the 2011 James Beard Award Winner for best chef, and his from Spain so I love him. Jose Andres owns several of DC's finest restaurants Oyamel being one of the best. It was my first time there, but I am sure to return.

On St. Patty's Day I had the highlight of my weekend (not really but it is my favorite thing to do ever) and stayed in bed until NOON. It was wonderful. I spent the rest of the day outside eating lunch, playing in the garden, etc. Then it was time for the real festivities to begin. I met a few friends at Lola's, my new favorite bar. We quickly be-friended the wonderful bartenders David and Adam, and drank Black and Tan's, Guinness and Jameson for the rest of the night. Sorry I didn't take more pictures... but it's probably better that I don't put any incriminating evidence of my debaucherous ways on the Internet.

Sunday I played in the garden some more (It's still a work in progress so I'll do a post later). Did some spring cleaning, and drank one GIANT diet coke to kill the Guinness headache.

All in all it was a wonderful weekend, I just hope these mild spring temps continue. How was your weekend? Get into anything fun on St. Patty's Day?
