Weekend in Pictures

Happy Dry Monday! So happy the rain stopped just in time for the beginning of another work week! This weekend was pretty chill for me and I contemplated not doing a weekend in pictures, but my friends got very hostile about that idea. So to humor them, here is my uneventful weekend.

It started out with birthday celebration number 1 at Eat Bar for my friend Katie's birthday. I love the atmosphere at this place and the tiny sliders and apps are delicious.

This picture represents the majority of my weekend. Rain. I spent a lot of time running errands and relaxing at home. Which I don't do too often, so it was a nice break.

Then there was birthday celebration number 2 for Katie on Saturday night. I hung out at her place while she got ready, isn't this a freaky shot of her in the magnified mirror?

Then we went out and celebrated with lots of drinks and friends at Urbana in Dupont. Even though the rain was a damper, Urbana was super cozy with their round booths and big chairs.

Sunday morning I had brunch at Le Pain Quotidien. I have to be honest, while the food was good I wasn't super impressed. It was kind of expensive for small portions and I definitely left still hungry. But I must say I do love the concept of the long communal table in the middle of the restaurant. Even though it doesn't really add to any community because people just leave a chair empty in between.

I also took lots of pictures of fall leaves. While the majority of the leaves have yet to change (and this freakishly cold weather better not mess that up!) I was still able to find a few pretty trees.

Sunday afternoon I headed down to Old Town Alexandria to have cider with a friend. I honestly don't get down to Old Town enough, and having just been up to New England, I have to say Old Town has the closest resemblance. I'm definitely going to have to get down there again once the leaves fully change.
