one for the record books.

Happy Monday, all! I am treating myself to a vacation day to soak up a few extra hours in DC before I head back to Rhode Island this afternoon. {cv} and I had an epic weekend--one fit for the record books. Here are a few photos I took over the weekend {using Instagram}. As always, I am linking up with a {little} dash of ash for her Instagram Mondays series!


{cv} and I made it to the District on Friday after work--and dove straight into this festive weekend with dinner at Chef Geoff's Downtown, surrounded by some of our best college friends. Saturday came quickly, but with it, so did a Georgetown basketball game and an evening of fun at a gala for an organization {cv} was involved with at Georgetown. I sported the sparkly number below from Rent the Runway {it's the Mini Sequin Pixie Dress from Mark & James by Badgley Mischka--and I LOVED it!}. On Sunday, we managed to squeeze in some touristy stops before {cv} flew back yesterday afternoon. I was super excited to see the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial and the National Christmas tree. Suffice it to say, it was enough to remind both {cv} and me how much we love and miss DC.


To cap off the weekend, I met up with nearly forty gorgeous ladies at Urbana for blogger blitz dc! Evenings like the one I had last night remind me why I blog. I loved meeting everyone who came--and I just wish I could have spent more time with each of you. There will be a post with lots more photos coming on Thursday, so watch for it. To those of you who came--thank you from the bottom of my heart from traveling near and far to be there! {Much gratitude to the phenomenal staff of Urbana who helped to make this event possible--and to the always lovely {mr} for suggesting their space!}


Many, many thanks to Elizabeth at Spike the Punch for being so generous to offer these beauties!
I know Amy and Holly will look absolutely stunning in their necklaces...
I just wish I could give a necklace to everyone who entered!


I hope each of you have a great Monday--can you believe the holidays will be here before we know it?! eeks! I better use this day off wisely ;) see you all tomorrow!
