Weekend Snapshots May 31 – June 2

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!

Happy Monday everyone! It’s a very weird Monday for me, my last day of work was Friday so I’m spending today running errands and doing my usual weekend tasks. I don’t think the fact that I am finished working and about to be a student again has really hit me yet! I’m sure it will as soon as I’m up to my neck in law school reading. Anyway, since Friday was my last day, my boss surprised my team and I with cupcakes to celebrate and say goodbye! I had a chocolate cupcake at work, and let Chris enjoy the red velvet beauty in the photo above when I got home. They were HUGE cupcakes from a store called Edibles Incredible in the Reston Town Center. It was such a treat and I was very thankful. Sad to say goodbye and move on to the next phase of my life, but I’m excited at the same time!

Monday, Monday, Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! I had a pretty quiet weekend myself, Chris has been preparing for the Virginia Bar Exam which is coming up this week, so I laid low with him for most of the weekend. On Friday night, we decided to order dinner in from Piola. While we waited for our pizza to arrive, I threw together a salad for each of us using up some ingredients which were leftover from the week in my refrigerator. Spinach, carrots, cucumbers, hard boil eggs, fresh mozzarella from last weekend’s caprese salad, and grilled chicken from chicken fajitas that I made earlier this week. Fajita recipe coming this week!

Monday again! Monday always seems to come too quickly, doesn’t it? I had great weekend visiting with family and spending time with some great friends. On Friday evening, I had plans to meet my friend Caley and her boyfriend Robbie at Truckaroo. Truckaroo is a festival down near the National’s Stadium in Southeast DC. All of the popular food trucks in DC park inside of the Fairgrounds, and serve up their specialities from 11-11 on select Fridays during the summer. They also showcase live bands and serve alcohol, at National’s Stadium prices, mind you!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I traveled home to Delaware this weekend to get out of the city heat. I left Friday morning, and made it down to the beach around noon. My Mom and Aunt Jackie were in Lewes celebrating my Aunt’s birthday, so I met up with them to do a little shopping and for lunch! Before lunch, Aunt Jackie introduced us to a cute boutique off of Route 9 called Coolspring Cottage. They had a ton of cute women’s clothing, and very unique pieces you can’t find just anywhere. They also have an entire floor of cash only sale items, which is dangerous but amazing!

Happy Monday!! I hope everyone made it through the storms and excessive heat this weekend! We lost power at my building on Friday night, but it was back on by Saturday afternoon. Thank goodness! Before the storms hit on Friday night, Chris took me out to dinner at Medium Rare to celebrate that I will be attending law school at American University this fall!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your first “official” weekend of summer! It was hot and steamy in DC, but I still managed to spend some time in the sun, and eat some great grub! Friday night, I threw together a quinoa salad with garbanzo beans and leftover roasted veggies from earlier in the week. Dressed with a little olive oil and red wine vinegar, this was a light and quick dinner that I enjoyed before Chris and I met a few of his friends out in DC!
