Weekend Snapshots June 14-16, 2013

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.

Weekend Snapshots June 7-9, 2013


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!

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!

Salt and Vinegar Potato Salad

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!!

Kiawah Island, SC in Pictures

Hi guys!! Sorry it has been so long since my last post, I’m trying to keep my head above water on the law school front right now. Things are going well and I’m enjoying it so far! I have some new recipes that I made before I classes began which I hope to post soon, but for now I have my pictures from my last vacation before law school for you to enjoy.

In early August, Chris and I were lucky enough to be able to head down to Kiawah Island, SC for a few days during the PGA Championship. The resort and golf course were absolutely gorgeous, and I felt extremely fortunate to be able to attend such a prestigious event.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and hopefully I’ll be back with another new post soon.

Without further ado, here are some pictures!
