Bites of My Life

Last week was one of my favorite weeks/weekends in D.C. During the week there was a party at work on Monday, lots of Barre 3 classes, dinner at my now, favorite restaurant and just good chill nights.
Part of the fam came to visit this weekend which made it just perfect. I had been stressing of what all to eat, do and show off to them. Everything ended up going as planned and the weather was actually perfect, so I don't think it could have been a better weekend!
This week marks week 4 in this beloved city. Nothing crazy is on tap for this week, but all four of the roommates and I are headed to NYC on Friday to visits friends working in the big city! 
-The intern life isn't so bad when it involves picking up dozens of the best cupcakes in town.
-Barre3 D.C. is my new happy place.
-Roomie dinner at one of the best restaurants. Table side guac was must and I may have asked this guy if I could have his job. I can make some mean guacamole in case you didn't know. 
-Not a very appetizing picture, but Wednesday night quickly turned into a good night when we discovered Wine Wednesday at the Whole Foods across from our dorm. $5 gets you 5 different samples of wine paired with 5 different food samplings. My favorite was the herb roasted veggies. 
-Finally pulled myself out of bed for an early morning barre class. Walked halfway there in the rain, but it was one of those happy mornings where nothing could rain on my parade. Pun intended.
-I make and take my lunch to work everyday. A version of this quinoa salad with fruit or nuts for a snack is my go to. Looks pretty good for being cooked up in the kitchenette!
-Mom, dad, Claire and her bf, all got in town on Friday! I loved getting to show them around my city for the weekend. 
-Good Stuff Eatery was high on the agenda of things to do while the fam was in town. This was the aftermath of our lunch. 
-I had been waiting to try out Meskerem, a highly rated Ethiopian spot in Adams Morgan. I knew my family's adventurous taste buds would be willing to try it out! No silverware is involved, instead you get plates of injera bread to scoop up all the yummy spiced dishes.
-Loved mom and pop being here, wish they didn't have to go so soon!
