And of course I planned what I was going to wear. I had brought along both jeans and dresses just to have a choice and I’m glad that I did, because in the end, I had to choose the warmer styles.
I cannot even begin to tell you just how bleeping cold it was here this weekend in Washington, D.C. It was absolutely freezing! You can’t tell by the pictures, but I thought my face was going to fall off.
But despite the arctic temperatures, the Mr. and I left Little M with my mother as planned and we spent the weekend in Georgetown.
I had booked a room at the quaint boutique Latham Hotel on M Street and without going into too much detail, we took advantage of some much needed time alone (ahem) and enjoyed being back in our capital city like the good old days.
On Saturday morning we went to see the advance screening of The Secret World of Arrietty (which hits theaters on the 17th) and then we were going to go for an 8 mile run. I decided to wear a casual striped blue and white dress, purple tights, patent brogues, my chunky red scarf and my tweed coat. I was a bit cold walking to our car, but the cold winds didn’t start until later.
Unfortunately we got caught in a mini snow storm on our run, but we survived!
On Sunday we went to mass at St. Matthew’s then we had brunch at the Circle on Dupont where the old Jury’s hotel used to be. We could hear the wind blowing from our hotel room and I decided against my flowered dress and went for jeans, grey suede boots, flowered blouse, blazer and red scarf.
I took off my coat to take these pictures to show the outfit. Luckily the wind stopped for a few minutes and which made it bearable.
After brunch we tried walking around for a bit, but we decided it was best to head back to the ‘burbs, relieve my mother of her babysitting duties and see our little man. He was so happy to see us he kept shouting “MAMI. PAPI. MAMI. PAPI” and jumping on us.
This was possibly one of the best weekends we have had in a very long time. It re-energized me for the weeks ahead, reminded me of why I love Washington, D.C. so much and of course, I had my lovely husband all to myself.
Nothing better than that!
