Weekend Recap: East Coast Wedding + D.C. Adventures

Hi friends! We’ve got another weekend recap today ’cause your girl has been on the MOVE.

Weekend Recap: East Coast Wedding + D.C. Adventures | Dancing for Donuts

Yep, I went out of town AGAIN. And now maybe you can see part of my motivation for wanting to be my own boss…not enough vacation days😂

It’s a pretty big wedding year for us😂 (I suppose we’re just at that age) and  since we’re both from the east coast originally, it means that a lot of our weddings are out that way, too. The good part (since the 6 hours, cross country flights are definitely NOT the highlight), is getting to spend more time with our families!

We were able to fly into DC on a red eye last Thursday night and stay with Alex’s family the nights before and after the wedding, which was so nice!

Though we spent most of Friday trying to wake up after barely sleeping the night before, we did venture out during the day for a last-minute trip to Sephora, walk through Georgetown and lunch at Leopold’s Kafé. We also went out that night for Sonny’s Pizza and drinks with some of Alex’s friends and brother, but I didn’t actually snap any pics of that…sorry😁

Saturday morning, we picked up our rental car and drove up to Lancaster, PA for the wedding. It was for our friends Will and Justine from b-school at this beautiful venue called The Farm at Eagles Ridge. I didn’t take a ton of photos (sorry for being literally the worst blogger ever this weekend), but I snapped a few! The grounds were stunning, the band was amazing and the cake was AWESOME.

On Sunday, we joined people from the wedding for brunch before heading back to DC. Since the weather wasn’t amazing, we stopped by Union Market for a quick lunch and a treat. Alex’s favorite, and now mine too, is the smoked white fish salad at Neopol.

We shared a bagel with the fish and then a pb & j doughnut from District Doghnut. It was SO hard to choose, they all looked amazing, but I think we made the right choice!

Afterwards, we just hung out at home until Alex had a ton of his family and friends over for Chinese takeout and margs, aka the most fantastic way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo😂  One thing I love about Alex’s family is how welcoming they are – it’s always one big party over there and it’s always so nice to see everyone!!

For our final day in DC, we actually fit in some exercise at a nearby gym, met some of Alex’s friends for lunch at Glens Garden Market (their salad plate is like $11.50 for a TON of amazing food), and banged out some work.

We were also spoiled enough to get some of our favorite cupcakes from Baked & Wired from Alex’s mom – if you haven’t had them, I swear they’re some of the best cupcakes I’ve ever had…second only to Magnolia Market’s of course!

Also how CUTE is Alex’s dog?! It was his birthday yesterday!! We landed back in LA around 8:30pm, then went home and crashed. It’s safe to say we had a super fun, yet exhausting weekend. It’s always a good time back on the east coast, though😊

Be back soon, once I tackle my very terrifying inbox…thanks for stopping by💗
