DC recap!

What a weekend! This past weekend I was in DC for my sister's medical school White Coat Ceremony (medical students get short white coats when they start school).

Friday:
Friday I got my haircut. I still haven't found anyone I like in LA but I love my DC place. If any DC girls need a recommendation, just let me know! Then my mom and I headed to Georgetown for shopping and lunch. I stocked up at Vineyard Vines. Since I am still unemployed, I just got some bacis (white and black polos and a bracelet). I am so in love with this jacket- it looks even pinker in person! BUT I really can't justify a jacket like that for southern California living. We had lunch at Pizzeria Paradiso then headed back to the hotel to meet my dad. We met my sister at Lebanese Taverna for dinner.

Saturday:
We all met for brunch at Open City. Get the waffle with Nutella. So good! Then my sister left to get ready for the afternoon ceremony. I wore my favorite Lilly dress yet again (definitely a smart investment!). The ceremony was great. They read two things about each person while they walked across the stage to get their white coat. I loved hearing funny/random facts about each person. I am so proud of my sister, the future doctor! There was a reception after then we headed to Founding Farmers for dinner. YUM! There are almost too many options! The corn on the cob is to die for!

Sunday:
My dad left so it was just the girls. We had brunch at Ardeo.We showed our mom one of our favorite little gift stores, Periwinkle then headed to Bethesda for some more shopping. First stop: the local Lilly store, Tickled Pink. I guess they were trying to clear out summer items to make room for fall because there wasn't much in the store :( I did get a really cute anchor belt (on sale!). We ended the trip with swirl margaritas and dinner at Lauriol Plaza

My google reader is very full right now so I may not be commenting but I will be reading!

  6. Finding a new hair dresser is so hard! Especially in LA, since there are about 12,335,435,434 hair dressers! Looks like you had a fun weekend!

  8. It sounds like you had a fabulous time, and congrats again to your sister. It sounds like you managed some retail therapy of a most discerning kind (hee-hee), good for you!)

    And I totally understand the hair issue, it can be such a nightmare finding someone good, that you can also trust.

    Sending you a smile Miss Nautical!

  9. I'd love to hear where you get your hair cut in DC... I've been living here 8 years and I still haven't found someone that I love.

    Glad you enjoyed the white coat ceremony... I remember going to my husband's ceremony 6 years ago. I still can't believe he's a resident responsible for people's lives!
