Life Via Instagram

Here's a little Instagram update from the pictures I've had on my phone this month.


// 1,2,3. Hanging out on my patio is becoming a daily routine. I usually come home from work and head straight out there. It's nice to sit under the trees and listen to the birds.
// 4. Mama Mia sittin' pretty.


// 1. What do we do the minute Andrew comes home after traveling for a month for work? Go to Chipotle of course!
// 2. I was in Racine, WI a few weeks ago for Mother's Day. Before I headed home, I HAD to have lunch at Javier's. I really miss that place! They have the best Mexican Food and the owners are so sweet to me. It was great seeing Ashley while I was in town. We went thrifting after lunch and my heart felt so full. What's better than thrifting with friends?
// 3. Eric and I caught up and had some late night food on my last night in Racine. Words can't even begin to describe how much I miss this guy.
// 4. Gina brought me to her new favorite spot in downtown Racine. It's a gaming store that also serves food. Really good food, too!


// 1. After Brian picked me up from the airport in Madison, we ate breakfast at The Sunroom Cafe on State Street. It felt so good being there. It was almost like I never left! They have really good food in a sweet little space overlooking State Street. I had the tofu scrambler. Yum!
// 2. Like father, like son.
// 3. My mama on Mother's Day.
// 4. My friend Katie opened her own salon in the Racine area and I've been dying to check it out. She's quite the entrepreneur and I'm so proud of her! It's such a cute place and I walked away with hair five inches shorter than what it was when I arrived. :)


// 1. My visit to Georgetown Cupcake was a yummy one.
// 2. Salted caramel cupcake... It was perfect in every way.
// 3. Rocky Votolato is a sweetie and he always puts on a great show. I saw him at The Red Palace here in DC this past weekend. Loved every minute! I ran into him on my way to the bathroom and I'm positive he's one of the nicest musicians out there. (And the tiniest! Haha.)
// 4. Open mic Sunday a couple of weeks ago. Charley was a charmer, and that woman next to him played just about every instrument you can think of.


// 1. Andrew and I taking a break and getting out of the sun at the Botanic Gardens in DC.
// 2. We made homemade pasta that night. Our first attempt at the dough was a disaster, but we realized our mistake and the 2nd batch turned out great.
// 3. It was so good! (They were filled with butternut squash and parmesan and tossed in a sage butter sauce.) Andrew also whipped up a little grapefruit, pomegranate, and fennel salad.
// 4. The view of the Capital building from Andrew's rooftop.
