After multiple flight cancellations, changes, and delays, I finally made it home late last night from my trip to DC. It was such a long day and I shutter to think that lots of people had it much worse than I did. While I attempt to catch up on life today, I give you my weekend in photos and some of my favorite places to visit if you happen to find yourself in our beautiful Capitol!
Our weekend started off with the best ever Italian at my favorite place in Arlington, VA, called La Bettola Italiano. It's this tiny little place that is always kind of empty, but I can never understand why because their food is fantastic and is such a great price. I got baked tortellini (holy cheesiness) and my friend and I did some much needed catching up over wine.
On Saturday we took my Hybrid Dodge Charger rental (which was awesome but kind of intimidating to drive, by the way) and headed out to Virginia wine country to two of our favorite wineries... Barrel Oak and Aspen Dale.
Fabulous wine, fabulous scenery.
On Sunday, we headed to Georgetown to do brunch at Serendipity, do some shopping, and then visit the Capitol Building (my favorite in all of DC... though I might be partial) to see the Christmas tree. There were giant snowflakes falling while we were perusing our favorite shops and we were really taking in all of the Christmas decor.

I hope you all had a great weekend and got into the holiday spirit like we did! See you back here tomorrow for another fun (and easy) Christmas project!
