Over the Weekend, A Fun Girls Weekend


I may be a few days late for my Over the Weekend post, but there were so many fun things that happened, I couldn't not share. I thought it would be a fun mid-week treat to share with y'all what this past long weekend brought to DC... some special visitors! My mother and good friend Lindsey came all the way up from Tennessee!!!

Since I had the day off Friday for the holiday weekend, my mother, Lindsey and I hit the ground running for our girls weekend. We definitely didn't waste any time, as my mother had us up, dressed and ready for a day of sightseeing by 9:00 a.m.


First stop was my office, to show them where I spend most of my time. I then showed them around the Capitol, even getting the opportunity to visit the senate floor and Speaker's balcony. I was so excited to experience things that I haven't even done since moving to DC! 


After visiting the Hill, we headed to see the White House, Museum of American History and Chinatown. I tell you what, the First Ladies exhibit is something to see. If you haven't witnessed the actual gowns worn by some of America's most famous women, you MUST check it out. There are gowns worn in the 1800s, all the way up to our current First Lady, Michelle Obama's recent Inaugural gown. 

Friday night we ate at a place I have been DYING to eat at, Lincoln DC. It's a restaurant dedicated to our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. The floors are made entirely out of pennies, ceilings featured mason jar chandeliers, and the menu is made up of gourmet southern dishes. Lincoln DC definitely lived up to the hype and deserves a visit by anyone who graces DC's presence. 

Saturday was probably my most favorite day, shopping in Georgetown. We started the afternoon off by eating lunch at one of DC's most famous places, Martin's Tavern. Martin's is known for the "proposal booth," where JFK and Jackie O. got engaged. It's a quaint little booth, located by the windows and marked with a placard so as to make sure everyone knows what historical moment took place there.


Here are some photos of different goodies I picked up whilst in Georgetown (make sure you say it with a rather regal accent).

Rebecca Minkoff trunk show at Urban Chic in Georgetown
I knew there was a Rebecca Minkoff trunk show going on at Urban Chic. I have been longing to own the mint green large tote, which is perfect for work. When I arrived, there it was in the front row! It just so happened to be the last one from the weekend and I made it all MINE!! I absolutely love my new tote and haven't stopped staring at it. 


My Tory Burch flats finally arrived and now I am ready for the summer!
Aside from some shopping and eating, my mother helped my roommate and I freshen up our apartment for spring, by picking up a new rug and some accents. It really brightens up the room, don't ya think? Only in DC can you have an Americana inspired living area, ha!


We capped off the weekend with a fun Easter Sunday brunch at Farmers Fishers Bakers. Another place I had been itching to go to, and so glad that I did. They offer an all you can eat brunch buffet, that is sure to please any southern sweet tooth. 

All in all I had a wonderful time visiting with my mother and great friend, over the weekend. 
Hope y'all are having a great week, Happy Hump Day!! 

Giveaway ends this Friday at noon!!

XOXO,
