Three day weekends are the best. Especially when one of your very best friends is only a few hours drive away at a rad internship at Highlights magazine in Pennsylvania and decides to drive down in their new car named Jacques to visit you. Just sayin’.
Since you probably already gathered that this is in fact exactly what happened to me this past Memorial Weekend, I shall provide you with some pictoral entertainment of our adventures.
Disclaimer: It was super hot and humid when we took all of these pictures. So, ya.
First stop after the requisite sleeping in on Saturday was the ever wonderful Eastern Market.
With the heat, lemonade became a necessity. Water is just not as good. And by good, I mean deliciously happy.
Annie channeled the mystery section at Capitol Books.
We then wandered past pretty, historical buildings. I may work in the most awesome one.
Mid-Post Review: This person is Annie. She is really cool.
We visited the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Not just because it had air conditioning and water fountains, but because we’re cultured people who developed a love art in London together. The second picture illustrates me wishing someone would teach us how to teleport.
Since that didn’t work , we went to Nando’s and just pretended like we were back in England. It was cheaper than a plane ticket.
One thing you should know about this city – it’s obsessed with cupcakes. They even have trucks that drive around selling cupcakes ice-cream truck style. But the absolute best place for cupcakes in the district is Baked & Wired. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise, because they are just lying.
If you told me that you didn’t want this, I would not believe you. I mean, look at it.
Because cupcakes are so popular here, we may have had to visit another shop too, though. The second time we went to the new Sprinkles because the owner is on a show Annie watched. Personally, Baked & Wired will always win for me, but Sprinkles was super cute too!
