The United States Capital is beautiful!! Two of our best friends, Paul’s groomsmen, were in town this weekend! Cody and Christian came up for the end of their Spring Break from LU to celebrate Cody’s 22nd Birthday. On Friday we went out to eat with a bunch of friends to a delicious place in Old Town Alexandria. It was so much fun to see old friends and meet some new people who Cody knew in DC.
Saturday was beautiful! With the weather being decent I knew we could not pass that up! I am so glad we did since today is another snow day!!
Christian had never been to the US Capital so that is where we started out for the day! We also picked up another great friend, Katie, to share the day with.
When Paul was an intern he gave many tours of the Capital and really knows his way around. Also, with his work badge we can go to many places a regular tour won’t take you! It was so much fun going around the Capital with ‘political’ friends.
We were all able to soak in the history and knowledge all around the Capital. It is also so awesome to think that many important men and women around the country have walked the same hauls making laws that impact millions of Americans!
After walking around the Capitol we were quite hungry. We went over to Union Station and ended up getting some food from Roti. Roti is a Mediterranean place that has delicious food!!
Sunday was a great rest day! Paul and I started off the day with the gym to get it out of the way. Most of the afternoon was spent cleaning and making food for the coming week.
If we don’t prepare we will fail with our diet!
Speaking of our dieting: Paul and I took most of the weekend off to really enjoy it with friends…and eat Birthday cake!! Having some time off really helps us to eat some of the foods we have been craving but also start out strong for the week ahead! I am down another 7 pounds which is exciting but I try not to focus on the numbers! I feel so much better when I am being active, eating clean, and drinking lots of water.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well. What did you do??
