Garrett surprised me on Mothers Day weekend by taking me on a little shopping trip to Georgetown.  Everyone told me I would love it.  And everyone was right.  The houses along the streets are so gorgeous and quaint.  And the shopping is to die for.

So it only took us about 45 minutes to park.  And we may or may not have gotten a parking ticket....which I need to remember to pay.  But other than that it was awesome.  We ate at a fantastic little pizza shop that supposedly Obama loves.  My favorite part about M street were all the adorable store fronts.

This Anthro might look small from the outside but it was the biggest one I had ever been in.  It was 2 stories.

The had an Ann Sacks there that I was really wanting to check out, but by the time we got to the store it was closed.  Big bummer, because look at how beautiful everything is just from outside the store window:

I was so excited when I spotted Georgetown Cupcakes.  Not that I've ever watched the show DC Cupcakes.....but I totally would if I tried one.

Except the line looked like this:

I wasn't that desperate for a cupcake.  Maybe I'll try another day.  For now, I'll just be satisfied with Sweet Tooth Fairy.  Their raspberry lemonade cupcakes are divine.

Garrett surprised me with my mother's day present a day early and took me to Sephora to let me pick out a new perfume.  I have a slight obsession with perfumes, so this was perfect.  He had a few he was trying to decide between, so he just let me pick.  I married a smart man.

I decided on Miss Dior Cherie by Christian Dior.  I have had a few samples of that one and love the scent.  It lasts forever.


  1. i've been wearing miss dior cherie every day for 4 years now... it's by far my most favorite perfume ever. did you get a chance to check out intermix while you were in georgetown? that's where i got my first pair of michael kors shoes. ahh memories

  2. Omg i love Georgetown! I was there this past friday actually :) my mom and i just went there for a fun day out. We had lunch in this yummy italian restaurant, and went shopping. Have you been to the little mall in georgetown. It's adorable. It only has a few big name stores, but the rest of them are all local boutiques

  3. How bout' this? You come take a little California vacation to Carlsbad. Spend some time at the beach. You can stay here at my house and teach me to sew a skirt. Your projects are adorable.

  4. I love Georgetown. You should totally get in line for a cupcake. They are delish & the line moves fast.

  5. I know that cupcakes are the superstar of the dessert world right now. And I know there are some really good ones out there. But I am with you, no way am I waiting in a line like that to eat a full days worth of calories :)

  6. Rather than wait in line, do they ship? A chance to taste them without the wait...
