Busy Bees

Okay, so no excuses but I know this post is way overdue (yea yea... Wesley called it that I would start out my post this way). We have had a very busy June and July! Between weddings, bachelorette parties and weekend getaways, we are finally back home and relaxing for a bit. It has been a little hot here in DC (ummm 105 degrees...hellooo!!), so between work during the week we have spent a lot of time indoors. We have also been doing a lot of apartment shopping since we are having to move out of our current place at the end of August. Does anyone know somewhere cheap we can move in the city?! Here is a recap and some pics from the last couple of weekends......
Bald Head Island - Memorial Day
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 I was off again to Rosemary Beach for Erin's bachelorette party. We got there Thursday night and laid on the beach for the whole weekend. Friday night we stayed in and had little appetizers and the lingerie shower. Saturday night we got a limo and drove around the area and had champagne. We had dinner at Red Bar .... yom!!! ... and went out at Bud & Alley's.

Pretty girls!!

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 ( 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!

This past weekend we made the trip down to New Orleans for Erin and Lee's wedding weekend. We went down on Thursday morning so that we were able to have one day to spend exploring around NOLA. We got there and met Candace, Charles and Megan and went straight to Acme Oyster. We then walked around Jackson square and went to the rooftop pool which was amazing. Thursday night there was a get together at Lee's friend's house. Friday was the Bridesmaid's Luncheon at Court of Two Sisters with the Rehearsal Dinner that night at Crescent City Brewhouse. It was all so much fun and great seeing so many good friends! Satuday was the wedding with the reception at Rosy's Tap Hall - such an incredible time! My parents also came down, so it was great to see them too. Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Smith!

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!!

Looks like you are having lots of fun! By the way, I love the cake and I am sure the cookies tasted great. It's great to read some postings for a change.
Can't wait to see both of you.....
one day {{hugs from across the miles}}
