Afterward dinner we stopped at this outdoor shopping center for gelato. I loved the outdoor setting with the flowers and lights.
I had a free day on Thursday and got to spend it with friends. One of my good childhood friends and her parents recently moved to Baltimore. They drove in to spend the day with me.
We had such a good time shopping and seeing a few exhibits at a Smithsonian.
I love wisteria. It smells so lovely.
Side note about wisteria...I found out while I was on this trip that my city is finally getting an Anthropologie!!!!! The store it is going into has a big pergola covered with wisteria. It is going to be the perfect setting for the store.
We saw Julia Child's kitchen, the ruby red slippers, and the first ladies' inaugural ball gowns.
We also saw the Hope Diamond and a lot of other fab jewels.
I would wear this crown everywhere if it were mine: the grocery store, work, walking Nuts, etc. love, love, love.
Last year when I was in DC I went to Georgetown Cupcakes. This year I wanted to visit Hello Cupcake in Dupont Circle. SOOOO glad I did. I fell in love with this cupcake bakery.
Ginger and I
See that pink cupcake. Strawberry buttercream frosting with strawberry cake. Pure heaven.
It was a great trip, but I was so happy when Ty and Nuts picked me up at the airport. There are a couple of work events happening in DC next year and I hope to return. What a fun city!
