Photo. Overload. In lieu of a 'Lately' this week, I decided to let you all in on my quick (and amazing ;) trip to D.C. I hadn't been since I was a kid, so I was beyond excited to get back! My maid of honor and I went to visit one of my other bridesmaids. We didn't get through a quarter of the D.C. sights that we wanted to see, but we did work through quite the restaurant list. Here goes!

We arrived Friday night after a full day of work and immediately relaxed at Proper 21. After unwinding with some crab dip and pizza, we moved onto the W Hotel's rooftop. It's apparently one of the best views of D.C. Although, in my opinion, Laura's apartment rooftop definitely rivals it ;)

We moseyed on over to Busboys and Poets for brunch late on Saturday morning. From there, Laura took us on a tour of the monuments (we didn't make it through them all, but boy we tried...)!

A tourist sweetly offered to take our photo in front of the Washington Monument...then proceeded to have us block the monument.

That started a trend with us accidentally blocking most monuments in every selfie. Behind us is Capitol Hill. I think.

I hear cupcakes are a must when you're in D.C., so Meghan and I figured - when in Rome! Laura took us to her favorite spot, Baked & Wired. Our cupcakes each had hilarious names that I now forget, but you'll have to take my word for it. They were so delicious. And I have eaten a lot of cupcakes.

We relaxed for a hot second before heading out for dinner. Margs over at Laura's favorite, Lauriol Plaza. Fueled by chips and salsa, we let Laura and her fiancĂ© show us around. Meghan adorably had Laura and I both toast to our engagements :)

Sunday morning we ventured out to a spot Laura had been dying to stop by - Ted's Bulletin. The waitress talked me into a massive stack of pancakes that did not disappoint. After filling up, we saw the rooftop view of D.C. one more time before we made our trek home.
