NOLA April 17th, 2014

I was down in New Orleans for a nice long weekend. First, celebrating Traci’s bachelorette party with some lovely ladies… then a quick visit with Esther. And, as I was flying home, realizing this trip just might have been my last big hurrah before baby burrito arrives in 10-ish more weeks. EEEEeeee!!! On that subject, walking around Bourbon Street and the French Quarter Festival while pregnant was… hmmm, interesting. Lots of sweet comments and well wishes from random people about my baby bump, (and thankfully only one random belly-rub). That is the thing I always love about NO, that everyone is just so nice and friendly. And it was a great trip. French Quarter Festival was a blast, so much good music and revelry. My only regret was having to pass on all the massive plates of boiled crawfish. I was too much of a weenie to risk eating the shellfish while pregnant, but boy was it tempting. There was more than enough other food to satisfy any pregnant woman’s dreams — gumbo, prailines, alligator tamales, snowcones with condensed milk… NOM NOM. It was food heaven. Ok, enough rambles, here are the pics:

cabin weekend March 24th, 2014


nora_photo 3
We spent the weekend at the cabin hanging out with the fam. The men did campfire and camping things (not pictured for good reason) and whatever else, while the women dined and shopped! Here, we have Nora rocking her new tutu and testing out a colorful hammock chair at the Plow & Hearth tent sale. I was so tempted to purchase this awesome seat, but we don’t really have a good place for it. The pitfalls of city living is not having a good hammock tree.

And a beeeeauuuutiful mountain sunrise. Just one perk of pregnancy is not being able to sleep like a normal* person and being awake at all sorts of odd hours of the day that I normally sleep through.
  *I realize many normal people are regularly up for the sunrise, but I have not typically been one in the past.

Pink Tie Party March 22nd, 2014


pinktie_photo 2
On Thursday Matt and and I went to the Pink Tie Party at the Reagan Building, a kickoff celebration for the Cherry Blossom Festival. If you love pink and people watching and finger food, THIS is the event. My favorite was all the pink attire – bow ties, sparkley heels, women inappropriately adorned in tutus… I loved it all.

I eagerly jumped into a photo with this girl and the greatest new invention I’ve witnessed yet in 2014: the champagne dress. Oh how I wish I could have partaken in a glass of the bubbly, but not drinking for 2 will be worth it ;) Keepin’ it classy with a tall glass of water instead. Not like I totally missed out anyways, there were root beer floats, so I’m not exactly complaining.

groundbreaking! March 20th, 2014

Yesterday was the official groundbreaking at The Wharf. It was rainy and overcast, but the weather didn’t overshadow the celebration of the great things to come at the southwest waterfront. I’m so proud of Matt and all the hard work he has put into the team that is bringing this massive project to The District.
