Happy Tuesday! Sorry this installment of Weekend Snapshots is basically two days behind! This past weekend was a busy one and Chris and I didn’t get back into DC until 10 on Sunday so I didn’t have time to write my post. Last night I needed to catch up on laundry and buy groceries to make it through the week. So here we are!
We traveled down to Richmond this past weekend for one of Chris’ best friends weddings. It was truly a beautiful affair and I am sorry to report that I was having too much fun enjoying the festivities and therefore did not take very many pictures.
I do have one from the rehearsal dinner, which just so happens to be my new favorite picture of Chris and me.
The rehearsal dinner was held at the Country Club of Virginia, which featured gorgeous views of the country club and golf course.
On Saturday, Chris and I had breakfast with his friend Peter at the Jefferson Hotel.
I had the incredibly decadent Shrimp and Grits, which was served with eggs over easy on top. I gave the eggs to Chris!
After breakfast, the boys headed to a groomsmen lunch and I shopped in Carytown with Ally – her boyfriend was also at the groomsmen lunch. I loved Carytown and want to go back! There were so many cute shops and restaurants.
The ceremony was held at the historic St. John’s Church. Chris and I went there once last summer to see a Patrick Henry reenactment – Give me Liberty, or Give me Death! (Picture from last year!)
After the ceremony we headed to the reception at the Commonwealth Club. It was a perfect venue for a reception and the food was fantastic! Chris and I danced the night away and had a wonderful time!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Hopefully, I will be back this week with my gazpacho recipe! Stay tuned!
Hi guys! I have a new recipe for you today! This past year I found myself sticking to some of my old favorites like broiled pork chops, blackened tilapia, roasted veggies, turkey burgers, and crock pot pulled chicken and pork. I did find some new favorites though and this recipe is one of them!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! It was beautiful in DC this weekend after Andrea rolled out of town. On Friday night, I had the last bowl of gazpacho that I made earlier in the week. I had it every night last week! I love gazpacho and had not made it in two summers. I’ll be posting my recipe here soon – it is a winner and completely guilt free!
Hi everyone!!! I want to apologize for the complete lack of posts over the school year. I had hoped to post at least once a month and instead ended up not posting at all. It was a crazy but successful first year of law school. I am happy that I survived and am enjoying a break from school work this summer!! I am working as a law clerk this summer in Old Town Alexandria and am loving my position so far.
This past weekend was hot and busy!!
On Friday night, Chris and I walked to Pete’s Pizza in Clarendon. I bought a Groupon a few weeks ago because I had been dying to try the pizza there and we decided it was the perfect time to use it up!
Hi everyone!! Hope you’re all doing well and that you had a nice weekend! My first big legal writing project was due last Thursday, so I took some time to relax this weekend, which was wonderful! Since I’ve start school I’ve been making a lot of big, easy meals so Chris and I can eat leftovers throughout the week. Pulled pork and pulled chicken are go to meals, but I wanted to shake my pulled pork up a little and decided to make carnitas! These were great as tacos and over rice like a Chipotle burrito bowl!

Hi guys!! Happy Friday! Has it been a long week for y’all?? What better way to celebrate making it to the weekend than by embracing the last few peaches in your grocery store and treating yourself to these decadent Peach Dumplings?
Hi guys!!! I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend! I have a new recipe to share, it’s perfect for barbeques or for upcoming tailgates you may be attending! I’m a huge fan of Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips, so when Tracy posted a recipe for a Salt & Vinegar Potato Salad a few years I made a mental note, but never got around to making it until earlier this summer! I’m sorry I waited so long! This is not you average potato salad, it’s much better!!
