DC Chillin'

I had the MOST amazing time this past weekend in DC visiting the lovely Mr. & Mrs. R! The trip started a little shaky (flight delayed two hours, made me check my carry on at the gate), but were quickly improved upon entering baggage claim where I was greeted by Mrs. R. By the time we made it back to their cute home in Shirlington Village, it was already past 1 AM, but that didn't stop us from chatting until well past 3 AM.

Friday morning we were up at 8:30 AM and walked along this cute creek and played at the dog park (mind you we were minus an actual dog), and then headed over to Five Guys with Mr. R and enjoyed a bacon-wrapped hot dog and fries (delish). Then we dropped Mr. R back off and headed to Georgetown.

Had to make a stop at Dean & Deluca for divine chocolates (two small truffles cost me $3) and the absolute best soy chai latte I have ever had. We did some window shopping, and just enjoyed the hustle and bustle of college students assembling last minute Halloween costumes. I also picked up these since they were only $8!

Next we were off to Clarydon for more shopping and wine tasting.

We had to get a picture with the gorgeous fall foliage behind us. Gotta love those long arms of Mrs. R! We grabbed a glass of Buehler chardonnay (super good, highly recommend) at 3 Bar & Grill and then enjoyed a wine tasting at Best Cellars.

Back in Shirlington that evening we decided to stay local and hit up Bungalow for some beers in mason jars, and darts of course!

Mrs. R enjoyed a Blue Moon (that's a lotta beer!)

The lovely hosts Mr. & Mrs. R - aren't they just so cute?

After hitting the hay a little late (4:00 AM anyone), we all decided to sleep in a little and then Mrs. R and I were off to Crystal City Shopping Center for last minute additions to our Halloween costumes. While we were there, we took the chance for a photo-op with a pretty fabulous couple.

Then we were back home and prepping for Halloween madness. The plan was to catch a taxi into the DC area and hit up the bars there. Well, after waiting 2 hours and still no cab, we decided to make the most of the evening and headed over to Bungalow again and we had a frickin' blast.

Black Cat & Slutty Sailor (no getting around it)

Halloween crew: Black Cat, Lederhosen Man, Mexican Mask Man, Pinocchio (minus the nose) and Slutty Sailor with Chocolate Cake Shots (yum!)

Had to get a pic with Layfette - his costume was dead on!

Sunday was here before we knew it and sadly it was back to the airport for me...our weekend of fun was jolted a bit by a run-in with the law. We fought them, but they won.

Thank you so much Mr. & Mrs. R for having me this weekend. It was a fabulous visit and I cannot wait to do it again in Spring 2010 and experience all those fabulous cherry blossoms!
