DC Minication Recap

DC was absolute heaven. Relaxation and fun and exactly what we needed. After sitting in traffic we finally made it to our hotel around 4pm. Our hotel was the Rouge and to be honest I don't have a single complaint. The decor is kind of kitschy but the accommodations are new and very nice. Our room was super large and we had every amenity that we desired. Plus all of the Kimpton Hotels are super pet friendly and they were amazing with Daisymae.

We relaxed for a little while, watched some cartoons, unpacked, and then headed out to explore our area of the city.

We were in the Dupont Circle/ Logan Circle area and it's mostly residential, but they have everything that you could want for {I mean we were two blocks from Whole Foods}. So that night we grabbed dinner at Agora. It was a Mediterranean tapas style restaurant and super delicious. they were very accommodating to BK and she did fantastic all through dinner while we ate and enjoyed a beverage. 

After dinner we headed back to the hotel to hang out for a bit before I set off on my mommy adventure to DryBar. My time at DryBar was nothing short of amazing. I mean you drink champagne while watching great movies i.e. Mean Girls & Bride Wars. My stylist was not only super sweet, but amazing at what she did. The rest of the staff was so kind when I was the last one in there a few minutes past closing time thanks to my MASSIVE hair. I even met a training manager who sat down and took an active interest in me. Needless to say I will definitely be back. If you're thinking about going, just do it! For real, I promise you will not regret it. It will be the best $40 ever spent on your hair. 

 I mean my hair looked damn good y'all!

Saturday morning we woke up bright and early to meet up with one my bestest friends, Brea. She took some beautiful pictures of us, we gallivanted the city, but most of all we got some quality time together. Love her. 

After Brea headed back to Maryland for a prospective client meeting, the hubs + baby + I set off to the Kite festival on the National Mall where we met up with his family. It was so beautiful to see the historic spots in the city, and we got to relax and enjoy each others company, and the weather was perfection. 

Saturday night we left Miss BK with her Gigi and Grandpa while S & I headed out to dinner with his brother and our soon to be sister in love. We had an amazing time. Some yummy dinner, lots of laughs, gelato, and we finished off the night with a few beers back in our room before we grabbed the baby for bed. Unfortunately we only have one picture, but I have to say that it's a good one. 

Sunday brought Easter baskets, bloody mary's in the hotel lobby, lunch at  2Amys, and then the road trip home. It was the perfect way to spend Easter weekend. I couldn't have asked for anything more.
