Weekend Highlights

Hey guys! I hope many of my American readers are enjoying a day off today! Matt and I are both working today, but from home, which makes it more fun. :) I’m planning to call it quits come afternoon if I can get everything organized this morning – good incentive to work quickly!

It has been HOT here over the past few days but we still got out and about this weekend in between getting some things done around the house. Here are some of the highlights!

Saturday morning hike along the Potomac with Matt and the pup:

Hot hike = cool salads were necessary for refueling (from Sweet Leaf):

Afternoon treats with high school friends Jenny + Lara (the shared snacks are from Mom&Pop coffee shop in Mosaic District; the juice is a carrot + beet + ginger juice from Puree Juice Bar also in Mosaic… I wasn’t in the mood for coffee):


Pizza date with Matt on Saturday night at our local fave Faccia Luna:

Sunday afternoon baby shower to celebrate Gretchen’s soon-to-be new arrival – how cute is this diaper door wreath?

My outfit for the event (dress is from thredUP):


Sunday night dinner outing with Matt + my parents at Del Frisco’s Grille – the pepper-crusted filet was amaaaazing:

One last photo from the weekend – an adorable one Matt got of Ashe. She has such pretty, soulful eyes. :)


Have a fabulous 4th of July holiday to my American readers, and don’t forget about my healthy 4th of July recipes post if you’re looking for recipe ideas! I’m taking tomorrow off but will be back on Wednesday with a full report. :) Until then!

    It’s been hot here too, and it will be through the end of this week too. Summer is officially here! Looks like you had some pretty tasty eats over the weekend. That last photo of Ashe is adorable.
