Juxtapose


              Opposites attract...right?
                  I do believe they do!

Sundays remind me of.....




Sitting here on a late Sunday evening/morning and thinking about how I love Sundays..

While others may loathe them as the beginning of another work week..I have learned to love them. 

We all need a lil down time and time to enjoy the sweet and scrumptious moments in life..sooooo

Let there be BRUNCH!! 

I loved this easy look from brunch a couple of months ago..

Here's to more Sundays off..

Restaurant Week Virgin!!

Happy Monday to all and to all a Happy Monday!

Its been a pretty busy past couple of weeks, but I have managed to sit down for more than 5 mins on my day off and upload some pics and write a blog post!

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending Restaurant Week here in D.C. for the FIRST TIME!!  Yup you heard it right...in the 11 years that I have been here in D.C. I have never had the opp to go. I think I thought it was wayyyy out of my league (I'm pretty frugal, and I always thought my lil coins couldn't afford all the fabulous food and atmospheres lol)
But lo and behold, one of my blogger buds and now coworker Franky J , explained it all to me as the Restaurant Week connoisseur that she is and I was sold!

We decided to go to Ris which is located right on L st., very easy to get too and it was a perfect night, so walking was a must that night.

I had briefly checked out the menu before going, but I wasn't dead set on what I was going to choose from the prefix menu...spontaneity at its best huh?? lol
And for $35 for the 3 course meal, I was very satisfied!!

Check out the pics from my yummy nite..
