5 of my favorite things: DC Style

1. Georgetown. Cupcake.


When I interned in DC the summer of 2009 everyone kept talking about this little cupcake shop in Georgetown. We tried to get there all the time but the line was constantly out the door. We finally got there one day after work. The run from the metro to the shop was SO worth it. I bought myself 4 cupcakes. I ate all of them that night. No shame and I was in love. About 6 months later I started seeing that little cupcake shop on TLC. They are worth the wait and all of the attention they get. Who doesn't love a good cream cheese buttercream frosting?! 


2. Jefferson Memorial


The Jefferson has always been my favorite memorial. I think that's because it's usually the more peaceful of all of the major memorials. It's way off the beaten path and it's just easier to take a car there. 


3. Remembrance. 

Pentagon 9/11 Memorial
One of my all time favorite things about DC is the ability to go to a place and reflect on something from our nation's past. It's not always the best moments in history, but I firmly believe you should always remember the bad so you can help prevent it from happening again.

Marines Memorial
4. A Framer. FINALLY.


We finally got some pictures of us that are decent enough to be framed. 

5. The US Capitol


The Capitol will always hold a special place in my heart. I spent one of the best summers of my life running through the halls of that building and I learned so much about our country. I'm almost 100% positive that I can still recite the video they play before the Capitol tours word for word. 



Happy Friday everyone!! I hope your weekend is a great one and very restful. I know I will be doing A LOT of resting.
