Taylor went for business and I tagged along.

I went to Founding Farmer’s twice. I loved the strangely unexpected yet amazingly cohesive 17 Vegetable Salad. The Green Goddess and Pimento Cheese spreads with toasted, crusty bread were also great. As were their roasted root vegetables and Virginia Green Beans with candied lemon {hello!} Taylor enjoyed his Skirt Steak and Enchilada.

I also met my friend Hanna at Northside Social while Taylor was at a client dinner, and enjoyed a nearly-Leaf-esque lunch at Chop’t.

Went on a few runs around the monuments. Saw the cherry blossoms, the Lincoln Memorial, Korean and Vietnam War memorials, MLK, Jr. Memorial and the Tidal Basin as well as the World War II memorial and the mall, past the White House, Washington Monument and Capitol. Drew a map on my hand for the first venture.Image

Left my water bottle on the bus to Georgetown. It was there when I boarded a returning bus. What.are.the.odds?!

It rained on Friday, and my shoes got wet. I was forced to be the cool tourist sporting tennis shoes and jeans to dinner.

After dinner at Shop House, Chipotle’s Asian sister which I thought was pretty good (even though it was quite spicy and I would have ordered differently next time) I suggested Taylor check out Shake Shack on the walk back to the hotel from Dupont Circle. He was a fan.

I want to live in Dean & Deluca. Their stores are pretty fantastic.

I also explored Capitol Hill where I enjoyed the Eastern Market and Capitol Hill Books.

On the way back from Capitol Hill I stopped at Union Station to pick up our train tickets to the airport on Saturday. For this navigation nerd, the whole trip was a fun public transportation adventure.

Made sure to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on the travel day back home.

Oh and remember Party Pants? Yes. I did. Thank you, H&M.

Where Am I?
