Top 5 Favorites of the Week: 2/12 – 2/18


1. Surprise bulk package of Shawn White’s White Mint gum at my door

Sam sent over a box of gum for me! I’ve got an addiction to this sweet mint flavor, and rarely chew any other gum. It has nothing to do with the giant Shaun White picture on the packaging, it’s just a great gum! Haha I realize how odd this sounds. Try the gum and you’ll understand.

2. Lauriol Plaza Margaritas

Discovered Lauriol Plaza’s pitcher of swirl margaritas last weekend. They were incredible! Can’t wait to go back. Yeah, the wait time for a table was a little crazy at 8 pm on a Saturday night, but next time I’d get my name on the waiting list and head upstairs to the third floor/covered and heated deck, where there is an almost unknown bar in the back.

3. Touring the Capitol Building

As soon as I knew my friend Kara would be visiting last weekend, I emailed my congressman in Texas (yep, still a Texas resident!) to set up a tour. I’m so glad we were able to get a guided tour of the building.

4. Getting the new Twilight Breaking Dawn movie for Valentine’s Day

Guilty pleasure.

5. Having my friend, Keri, visit from New York City this weekend!

Keri, me, Kendrick at party last spring.

Can’t wait to have her in DC this weekend and go show her around the local hot spots. She was one of the first friends I made in college, and even after graduation we’re still close!

Keri has seen her share of the DC tourist sites, so I think we’ll just keep the weekend low-key.

Keri, what would we like to do this weekend?

    Aren’t those the best Margs ever!? I don’t even go there for the food only the swirls! I think the next best place for them is Tortilla Coast! They have the best Sangria Margs! It was nice meeting you last night as well!
