3 Day Weekend: Cupcakes, Shopping, and Fun!

Monday, May 31, 2010

I hope everyone had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend! I desperately needed some time off. Nicholas and I wanted to get away for a night so we decided to head to Georgetown on Saturday. I got up super early on Saturday morning to volunteer at a children's running event and then we left as soon as I got home. We ate lots of yummy food (a definite must for any trip) and I did a little (ok...a lot) of shopping!

I must admit my favorite food highlight of the trip was our discovery of Georgetown Cupcake!

There was a line outside the door to buy these delightful cupcakes, but definitely worth the wait! I tried to talk hubs into buying a half dozen (seemed completely fine to me), but he seemed to think eating 3 cupcakes was a lot! Nicholas got the two cupcakes on the left: Chocolate Coconut and Peanut Butter Fudge, and I lot the two on the right: Vanilla Birthday and Red Velvet. So yummy!

I checked out their website after our visit and found out they ship! Haha that could be dangerous...

On Saturday night we went to J. Pauls for dinner. I love their soft pretzels with mustard (they bring out instead of bread) and tasty oysters!

(Goofy picture we took in the elevator mirror on our way back from dinner)

Here are some of my shopping highlights...

Fun green bangle from Fornash!

Green Thumb Belt (Anthropologie)

Unintentionally keeping with Friday's blue and yellow theme I'm wearing this belt with turquoise pumps and a yellow skirt today! It's a little matchy-matchy with the heels and the belt, so I threw in the pink bag to break it up.

Apparently I just cannot get enough of blue heels lately because I fell in love with these bright blue beauties from Aldo too!
Douvier Pumps (Aldo)

I love full skirts! They have such a fun, retro feel!
Pulsations Skirt (Anthropologie)

These were just too cute to pass up!
Eyelet Peep Toe Wedge (Bandolino)

We got home Sunday evening and then had a relaxing, but productive, day yesterday...we started packing for our move! Less than two weeks to go!

Did anyone else get away this weekend? Any good shopping adventures?

  2. Love all of your Lilly. I'm starving and those cupcakes and soft pretzel look super yummy. Where did you get your green purse? Love it! No shopping for me this weekend, as it was spent at the beach, but I'm hoping to get some shopping in soon. Love that green bangle!
