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…]

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.

Poppy and rap song suggestions are most welcome (as I find it is those songs that really get me pumped up for a run). [Read more…]

At the suggestion of a friend, I went to Seasons 52 Fresh Grill at Tyson’s Corner, for dinner on Saturday. I was very intrigued by the fact that they state that every item on their menu is less than 475 calories. [Read more…]
As you know Cairo, Egypt holds a special place in my family’s heart. Despite the chaos that is currently going on over there right now, we all look back on our time in Cairo fondly and lovingly. Whenever we get the chance to sort of re-live our experience there, we do.
I accompanied my mom and our good family friend (her daughter went to Cairo American College with me and is my high school best friend) to a concert at the Freer Gallery of Art to hear Naseer Shamma play various musical instruments with his ensemble. [Read more…]
