Over the Weekend

Over the past week or so I have had a TON of you ask for more posts. Originally I started this blog for something fun, hoping to do one post a week and have more than just my mother read. However, everyone has been so sweet and supportive. SO, I heard you all and am really going to hit the ground running with this. So today I am introducing a new series called Over the Weekend.

Over the Weekend will highlight some of the things... well that I did over the weekend. While not every Friday - Sunday is eventful, there is always something to share. So here we go… 


Friday Night at Mason Inn

Mason Inn, a local Glover Park favorite, played host to the Taste of the South Mini Fundraiser this past Friday.
Taste of the South is a charity gala held every spring here in Washington D.C. TOTS, as it's also known, first began as a night to celebrate "all things southern." Heading into it's 32nd year, TOTS has grown into a 44 member committee and encompasses 13 states. This charity gala is an evening to celebrate a little taste of the south, but also give back to the places we all come from.

Thanks for coming!
Several hundred people came out to kickoff the weekend and support a great cause.

Taste of the South Committee Members
The Florida committee, along with the Executive council, put together the mini fundraiser.

It's Raffle Time! 
Several free tickets to TOTS 2014 and a $100 bar tab to Mason Inn were raffled off in return for donations.

Summer, Please Hurry
This summer is going to be all about the details. I found these gorgeous dresses from Francesca's here in DC.
Can it please be summer already?

Breakfast at Busboy's and Poets
A great way to end the weekend and start off my Sunday morning, was brunch with my friend Alex at Busboys and Poets. I have been dying to go there for months, so it was a welcomed treat. It was a great morning of lattes, french toast and catching up with a good friend.


Taste of the South will be held on Saturday, March 29, 2014 at the Washington Hilton.
Tickets will go on sale February 28th on the Taste of the South website.
