the capitol

it was one of those weekends.

you know, the ones where you have so much fun that going back to work seems excruciating.

we took a mini road trip.



ans stayed with some fun people.


we didn't do much "downtown" tourist-y stuff because jon stewart's rally to restore sanity was taking place. and dc was packed.

we did, however, visit great falls & georgetown.



it was in georgetown that we made a decision that would forever change my life.


we visited georgetown cupcake. this place is insane. we went there two days in a row, just so i could stand in their out-the-door-and-up-the-street-line and enjoy their freshly baked cupcakes. their salted caramel is the one i want to eat every day for the rest of my life. the red velvet, milk chocolate birthday, and pumpkin spice are also to die for. i love cupcakes way, way too much.

I love me some cupcakes (or "pupcakes," as my 4-year-old calls 'em). Those look delicious.

It's settled. We're going to DC just to get those cupcakes before we come stay at your house. I am sooooo jealous.

p.s. I was going to slyly nudge you in the direction of purchasing and shipping me a couple of these - until I saw that they are $29 a dozen & the first dozen costs $25 to ship. Maybe if you win the lottery...

I always have a few posts to catch up on! So jealous of your mtn biking adventures, I pretty much missed the best of the biking season. Soak it up! That was a sweet post about your hubby, I'm glad you found each other. And the cupcakes...I could use one of those right now!

My sister and I frequent Georgetown cupcakes often. She's a huge fan...and she lives in DC. They are yummy :) Glad you had a fun road trip. Nothing like getting away for a while.
