H Street Festival 2012
September 16th, 2012
Yesterday we went to the H Street Festival, along with just about everyone in DC it seems! So crowded, so much to check out. It was a perfect weather kind of day, we ran into lots of our friends and neighbors, ate some delcious street food, listened to live music, and Val and Ty picked up an awesome new piece of glass artwork for their house. Great success!!

This past weekend I went to Austin with 10 lovely ladies to celebrate Jessica’s last hurrah before she gets married next month. We had an amazing time checking out the best parts of the city — live music, delicious Mexican food, the craziness of 6th Street, drinks overlooking Lake Austin, the campus at University of Texas… and I’m sure much more that we missed because it was such a quick trip! The best/most random compliment of the trip was a comment from a passer-by while walking around the campus: “Good luck on finals, ladies!” We all decided it was okay that we can still possibly pass for college-aged.
We spent time some time perusing the Pecan Street Festival, trying not to completely melt in the hot hot heat, placed some bets and cheered for our horses in the Kentucky Derby, did some shopping, and completely over-utilized the hotel cookie shuttle to get around town the entire time. The highlight of the weekend for me though was our visit to Rebels Honky Tonk, where we spent the night dancing and trying to learn the two-step. Oh, and watching the bachelorette ride the mechanical bull. Yes, a great time was had by all. I’m ready to go back to Austin again already.

lazy pets, sharing the sun.
Pics from the weekend — I didn’t take as many as I should have.
Cherry Blossom Festival and Fireworks down at The Wharf, Southwest waterfront. Don’t all the houseboats look lovely with their pink lights??!
and, sad Peep. Easter has come and gone…
H Street Festival
September 18th, 2011
Yesterday we checked out the H Street Festival and all the eye-candy it had to offer. It was PERFECT fall festival weather – cool and comfortable. We ate some delicious street vendor food, ran into lots of friends and neighbors, and enjoyed all of the people and dog watching. Love this neighborhood!
the Atlas Armada ran up and down the streetcar tracks. human-powered!
