So I jetted off with a few of my friends from DC (leaving all the boys behind!) to a GREAT relaxing weekend at my friend Betsy's house on Bald Head Island in North Carolina. You literally had to take a ferry over to the island where there were no cars and you got to drive around in golf carts. It was so nice being out of the District and hanging out and cooking dinners with good friends. :)
Cheers to a great weekend

The next weekend, Wesley and I decided we were itching for a trip to New York so we hopped in the car and drove the four hours (well it really took us six... ahh traffic!) up to NYC. We still can't get over that we can pop up to New York any time we want because we were so close. It was the perfect weekend to go since it was Elizabeth's birthday. We went to an AMAZING dinner at Mas (farmhouse) in Greenwich Village (http://www.masfarmhouse.com/). If you are in the NYC area and are looking for somewhere incredible to eat, I would definitely suggest this place.

Wesley and I were then home for a couple of weekends (trying to avoid the heat!), but we did try to get out a bit. After attempting to lay out in the public park by our house.... yes just in the grass... with cars flying by.... yikes...., we decided to venture to one of the public pools in the area. It definitely wasn't a country club......... but at least it was somewhere to go! We stayed in town for the 4th of July, which is always fun in the District. We went to a cookout at my friend Katie's house and I attempted to make a few festive treats. Yea yea... slice and bake I know... I tried, okay!
So needless to say, Wesley and I are a little tired out! We have some down time here in DC for a while, so hopefully we will jump back on the blogging bandwagon. Is anyone else in shock that it is already the middle of July?! Happy summer everyone!!
