Fabulous Weekend Weather

Last weekend started with Josh treating me to a fabulous dinner at Cava. Cava is a Greek tapas restaurant on 8th Street SE, and it is possibly one of my favorite places in DC. (I know I claim that a lot of places are my favorites...but this one is superb.) Cava is delicious, affordable, and low key...all things I like. We split one appetizer, two entree tapas, and a bottle of wine and I was stuffed...but in a good way.
Saganaki-A yummy cheese that is doused in brandy and then lit on fire. AMAZING. This was the first time we had it.
Scallops Risotto- the scallops were cooked perfectly and the risotto was creamy and flavorful.
Spicy Lamb Sliders-my favorite dish at Cava.  Grilled lamb with spicy tomato sauce and tzaziki!

After dinner Josh and I walked around 8th Street and spotted The Capitol Hillbillies. They are a Blue Grass band that sets up shop randomly around Capitol Hill. I have seen them at Eastern Market on the weekend several times, and it was a great night for some music!



On the way back to house Josh and I stopped at The Sweet Lobby. They were the winners on an episode of Cupcake Wars, and I have been dying to try them. I thought the cupcakes were good, but the macaroons were PHENOMENAL! I would go so far as to say better than Laduree from Paris! EEEEEE! I am craving the macaroons as we speak!


The next morning we went to CrossFit. It was a tough WOD, but as always I was so glad that I went!

After CF, Josh made us breakfast and then we went and looked at CrossFit shoes. We have both been wanting a pair for a while and wanted to do some more research before we made a purchase.

After a quick snack and a shower, Josh and I both went over to our friend Deon's house for a cookout. The weather was gorgeous so it was the perfect excuse to hangout with friends, grill some delicious food, and have a few drinks!
Sweet Friends!
Phil's New Do!

The next day I went to a birthday brunch in honor of my friend Kathryn. It was at a place I had never been to called Pearl Dive Oyster Palace, and it was divine!
We started with the donuts!
And some delicious cocktails
The Birthday girl in sunny yellow!
I had the Steak and Eggs. The eggs were buttery and fluffy and my steak was cooked perfectly and was so flavorful.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATHRYN!

After brunch, Beth and I did some antique shopping and then she dropped me off in Georgetown. I perused the shops and then Josh picked me up and we went to his place. I was EXHAUSTED for some reason and took like a 2 hour nap. When I woke up from my blissful slumber my handsome man had already started dinner...SHISH KABOBSSS!!!!



I spent the rest of the evening drinking wine and watching TV! The End!

Happy Memorial Day Everyone! 
I am so thankful to those who have served and continue to serve our great country. Thank you for your selflessness and loyalty. You are all heroes!
