Hello! How was your weekend? Mine went from Nashville to Baltimore to DC to Nashville. Lots of planes and trains.

On Friday we arrived in Charm City to meet up with Alanna and Milad! They were in town for a few hours and somehow escaped the camera so our precious time together will somehow go undocumented. In exchange, here’s a throwback pic of Alanna and me from 2007… BFFs.

Alanna was kind enough to let us stay at her place for the night. Anthony and I explored Hampden, a cute little neighborhood not far from where I went to college._DSC0367Hampden is really happening these days! We strolled over to a new brewery to kick off the weekend.20160513_175550Up next was Grano, a cute little pasta bar that was full of sizzling pasta dishes and smoky tomato scents. But first: salad! I figured we should eat something green for the day.grano_pasta_baltimore_DSC0379Then we watched our pasta chef cook our noodles and sauces over an open flame. Yum. grano_pasta_baltimore__DSC0381Cheese plz.

We called it an early night and were up bright and early on Saturday to catch the train to DC! First item on our to-do list was a run with Anne and her husband Matt!IMG_0846The four of us headed out for a quick five miles along the Custis trail. Anne and I used to run together about every week when I lived in DC — I miss her! Good seeing you, Anne!20160514_110746After our run, I jogged straight over to Northside Social to have coffee and talk running + blogging with Brae, mastermind of the ZOOMA women’s race series. So fun catching up with her!20160514_121843Fast forward through a power nap and it was party time.20160514_172948The main event of the weekend was our friends’ wedding! Anthony’s friend Victor put a ring on it this past Saturday with the lovely Lauren. Look at this cute couple!20160514_211130The ceremony and reception as held at the Larz Anderson House, a beautiful historic DC home full of regal decor fit for an American the Downton Abbey family.

Congrats to the happy couple! Now I’ve got to go back to reality and tackle my Monday to-do list. See you tomorrow.

  • Do you cry at weddings?
  • DC/Baltimore people: Favorite neighborhood? (Hampden is up there for me!)
  • How long have you known your best friend?

  1. I cry at everything! I am also a sympathy crier, so if I see someone else crying, I’ll start to cry too. It’s like I don’t want them to feel alone so I cry too. Looks like a fun weekend!

  2. I cry at everyone’s wedding including my sister’s while I was walking down the aisle as a (pregnant) matron of honor. Talk about embarrassing.
