Back in our nation’s capital!

Hello from D.C.! I drove up this morning because this weekend is my 10 year high school reunion! Yikes. Times flies, huh?! It will be fun to see everyone again! :)

On my drive up this morning, I swung by Woodbridge, VA to have lunch with my friend Michelle from my Microbiology class last summer!


I heart her :) It was great to see her!

We had lunch at Wegmans at their amazing salad bar. Mmmm…


I loaded up on greens, some bean salads, chicken, and my favorite — watermelon! I don’t know why I insist on getting the heaviest fruit possible at a pay-by-weight salad bar, but it’s just sooo good and juicy I can’t help myself :)


After lunch, I swung by Alexandria to see Matt (he works here in DC during the week) — his 10 year high school reunion is actually this weekend too, but up in Pittsburgh! So he will be going to his, and I’ll be going to mine. Sniff. I was glad to see him briefly though before he left!

I’m home now and my mom and I have a hot dinner date shortly, but first — exciting news! I heard earlier today that I advanced to round 4 of Foodbuzz’s Project Food Blog!! Thank you all SO much for voting for me. I’m so excited!

Here are all three of my Project Food Blog posts, in case you missed any of them:

To celebrate advancing to the next round, I bought the most adorable (and amazingly priced – $12!) apron at TJ Maxx.


(Actually, I bought it just before I heard about advancing… don’t tell ;) )

Isn’t it sickeningly cute?! I want it to be a dress!!

Heh. Clearly I heart ruffles.

I’m off for a quick run before dinner — have a wonderful night! And stay tuned — an epic recipe is coming up on the blog tomorrow ;)

    I think that is the cutest apron I have ever seen. What’s for dinner, anything good?

    That darling apron would make a cute dress. Get another one and sew up the sides (haha).I had no doubt you would advance to Challenge #4. Have a great weekend.

    When I first read this, I thought you said “I want to be a dress!”

    And for some reason, that made perfect sense to me.

    I’m totally feeling apron envy. It’s adorable.

    Like Jenna, I also read “I want to be a dress” and it took a minute for me to realize that was not a rational thought.

    Congratulations on advancing, Anne! Super news. What’s the next stage? Enjoy D.C.!

    I love that apron! I totally thought it was from Anthropologie. $12 is a MUCH better than what you’d pay for one of those though!
