DC eats & recap

hello hello, happy hump day! We just got to one of the coffee shops here in town, No power and tons of trees are down including in our yard, eeek! Hopefully it comes on later.

I’m linking up with Jenn, sharing our D.C. Eats!

We we’re only there for 2 1/2 days, but still lots of fun things to do and eat. If you missed Monday’s post– here’s what we did on Sunday.

Our first dinner there was Mexican theme, all time favorite. My aunt & uncle did such a nice presentation with everything. From the taco salad, burritos, lettuce wraps & Mexican wine. Perfect lame game Super Bowl Sunday dinner.

Monday was our touristy day 😀 Before heading into the city, we enjoyed coffee & breakfast. I enjoyed some fage greek 2% with strawberries, pb & a few nuts.

We drove all over the city seeing the monuments, my uncle did a great job being a tour guide!{ it was a rainy day outside so we drove to most} Plus we visited the Natural History & American History museums.

Once we were done with the two museums, we had one more stop in mind 😉 but we needed something in our bellies first. We walked over to Clyde’s of Gallery Place for a bite. George & I agreed to split a salad and a burger. Great place, something for everyone!

We finished our Monday night with cupcakes and the rest of our first second trip to wholefoods ..which by the way I think we created a monster with George. He is now in love with their waffle cookies.

The rest of the evening was spent with lots of laughs, talking & all being on the couch : )

Tuesday morning we woke up to my uncle making some scramble eggs and more of that delicious whole foods coffee. We lingered around for awhile, until it was time to hit the road. We wanted to be back by rush hour/ ALL THIS bad weather!!!

Celebrating 3 years

Hey hey. Good afternoon.
wow what a beautiful fall day! Nothing beats an east coast fall day, am I right?!
I just got home from the my first test of the semester.. fingers crossed!

Let’s get to today’s post! Yesterday George & I celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary! 🙂 boy, does time fly or what!
We, or should I say I decided to nix the original dinner plans for a late lunch due to my test today, but it worked out perfectly!IMG_6482
Cards, chocolate & flowers. Simple, yet a way to my heart ❤
Earlier in the morning we had some coffee at one of the local coffee shops, followed by me studying for a short period of time..
than off to Manayunk to do the trail we had walked back in earlier September but decided to ride bikes! 🙂

IMG_6483It’s such a nice trail. Some parts are shaded, some have full sun & you pass along the water with the city skyline in the background.

We rode all the way down to the Philly art museum and water works, took a small break and decided that we were more than ready to eat!
Thank goodness after the bike ride I ate my quest bar, because the place we originally wanted to go to was closed on Monday’s 😦 BOO! IMG_6448We walked around until we found something that tickled our taste buds. Wine.. and pizza? Sounded like a perfect lunch after a ride.

We opened our cards, and enjoyed each other’s company, reminisced & then realized how SORE our booty’s were from the bikes! hehe.
Of course I couldn’t leave without something sweet to finish the day.

Chocolate cupcake, filled with butter cream. Frosting is ganache topped with toffee.. SOLD.

Was the perfect little anniversary day to us! We were able to celebrate and then I was able to study more at night <— lame but the truth.
I love going on our little adventures together, couldn’t imagine being with anyone else!

Here’s to more adventures & many more anniversaries.
