Archives for March 2013
So much for March 20th being the official start of “spring”. D.C. and its surrounding area has had such strange weather lately – it feels more like that start of winter than spring. [Read more…]
My most favorite breakfast food in the entire world are the cottage cheese pancakes my mom or dad make. (This is saying a lot for a person that generally doesn’t really like breakfasty food). As a child, I remember always looking forward to the weekend specifically because I knew mom or dad would be whipping up these bad boys for our Saturday morning breakfast. [Read more…]
1. I went to Mari Vana, a Russian restaurant, one night last week for drinks and dinner with a friend I hadn’t seen in months. I always pass this restaurant on my way to work and from work and was very curious about it. It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to go here so I went in not knowing what to expect. I liked it! I will say the prices for drinks and food are on the high-end of the spectrum. I left dinner finding out that I love the Russian version of pork and beef dumplings. Soooo good. I made my friend order two servings. [Read more…]
This past weekend was, oh, so much fun! As a birthday surprise I flew to Dallas so I could partake in the big 3-0 birthday festivities for my dear, dear friend Katie. There has been a lot of celebrating this specific number birthday as you’ll remember I flew out to L.A. last December to celebrate my friend Sarah turning 30. [Read more…]
Tommy and I made a somewhat game-time travel decision earlier this week. We are going to Belize sometime between June 1st and September 30th!
We had been mulling over what our big (read: international) trip this year would be – we were vacillating between Belize and Costa Rica for a couple of months. [Read more…]
I had been eager to try Lavagna’s weekend brunch for a while since I am a lover of brunch-eating and because this blog really talked it up. Tiffany and I decided to eat brunch here on Sunday at my request. The result – it was all right. [Read more…]
I finally ate here!
Still fresh of my high of completing my first half marathon earlier that day, Tommy, Tiffany, and I met up with our friends Lindsay, Mario, and Lara at Proof at 9pm on Saturday eager to see what the restaurant had to offer. Like me, no one else had eaten here before. [Read more…]
This week’s Tuesday Tidbits covers more D.C. Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon fun! [Read more…]
I have officially completed my goal of running a half marathon!
The D.C. Rock ‘N’ Roll Half (and Full) Marathon was this past Saturday. Part of me couldn’t believe it was time for the race to be here already and the other part of me was getting a little tired from all of the training and was just anxious to run the race.There was the impending threat of rain on race day (70% chance of it raining all day), which would have been awful for all the runners who had spent some much time and energy training for the race. I personally would have cried in anger and frustration if it had rained and probably wouldn’t have finished the race. Alas, it didn’t rain! The weather turned out to be perfect, and we even saw some sunlight during the day. [Read more…]
