Even though I've been blogging since Dec, I still don't feel like a "blogger" although I do feel a bit closer today. Emily from thefrontburnerblog.com has recently moved to the area, and organized an awesome get together of bloggers and blogreaders. She chose an excellent location--Sweetgreen. They take the idea of "salad" up a notch. I went crazy with the toppings--seriously I had 8-10 toppings--and it was glorious.
My bowl of nutrition up-close-and-personal . . .
Emily is as sweet in-person as she seems on her blog, and it was great meeting other locals.
Group shot of all the girlies . . .
After the meetup, the Aussie & I headed to checkout more wedding bands, and I'm happy to report we both found the keeper :)
The Aussie went with a unique raw diamond band by Todd Reed.
His band will be thicker though.
We found my ring in Annapolis.
I know I'm wearing it the wrong way, but after you slip your ring on and off and on and off it starts to get harder to take off, so I opted to just put it on top. I also informed the Aussie that I'll need a matching one as a push gift ;) muahahah. But that won't be for a few more years.
No trip to DC is complete without a stop at Sticky Fingers, an all-vegan bakery! We shared a choc chip cookie, coconut cupcake, and a pb fudge cupcake. Can you say sugar coma?
I went to another Macy's to see if they had either shoe in my size, and they didn't :( But we did get a lovely dinner at Panera Bread. I did the you-choose-two with the bean soup & veggie sandwich.
It was definitely an eventful day. Time for me to unwind.
Off to watch some movie the Aussie picked out (redbox rocks!),
