Weird, Whirlwind Week + Favorites

This has been a weird week. The first few days just creeped by and I was seriously just in the biggest funk. Hormones are weird. Then the rest of the week just flew by. On Wednesday, I worked part of the day from home and then flew up to DC for two nights.



Am I good at capturing the sights or what?

Can we just talk about how much I love DC? It helps that it’s only a two-hour flight away and whenever I go there I a) have a great time and eat great food and b) get to meet up with someone I know. This time it was Melissa!


We ate dinner at The Commissary, which was perfect. Not too loud, good food, and a menu for anyone (it had burgers, pizzas, salads, sandwiches, dinner, and is also vegan friendly). I went totally out of my comfort zone and had the Butternut Squash, Purple Kale, Pears, Cambozola Cheese, Spiced Walnuts Pizza. Yes, all of that on a pizza.


The food was great and the company was even better. I asked Paula why Melissa couldn’t move to Orlando?


Then we could things like this more often — together.

Thursday I was in a meeting all day, followed by a work happy hour (i.e., I sat around drinking water wishing I could drink about 15 glasses of wine), and then we attempted to eat dinner at this Greek/Turkish restaurant Zaytinya, but it was packed and we were too hungry to wait for an hour. So we wandered down the road and found Oya instead.


It was… interesting.

The decor was gorgeous – but the marble walls made the place LOUD.




Can you spot me?

The food is Asian-French fusion and everyone but me RAVED about their meal. I SHOULD have gotten the Restaurant Week menu, but instead got Shrimp and it was “eh.” I would go back though – if anything to try their sushi!

Yesterday we had a morning full of meeting and then headed to the airport for our flight home. I also had my first strip search experience because I did not want to go through the body scanner. Good times. Thankfully the woman was really nice and the rest of the trip was uneventful.

Waiting... Can't wait to get home!

But I have to say – I love being home — no more of this!


Because my week has been so hectic, I haven’t really had time to read anything laugh, cry, sweat, or inspiration worthy — so instead I give you some of my favorite blog posts of the week.

What are some of your favorite posts of the week? What’s your favorite city to visit?

Happy Weekend!

      I had a feeling it was going to be packed – oh well!!

      I feel like the fireplace in Oya was worth the trip. Lol. They had very generous pouring of wine too – which I appreciate at a “fancy” restaurant. And their small plates were actually really affordable.

    I may have been able to eat that pizza if no one told me what was actually on it. : )

    Looking forward to seeing you soon!

      I hope you make it up there soon! The best time of year to go is March/April for the Cherry Blossoms. Did Dave get to check out any good restaurants while we was there?
