Where did our weekend go? “Poof… all gone” as Sophia would say.
We had quite a busy weekend and are facing quite a busy September and October. First things first… inevitably (as this was really a matter of time), Sophia’s social calendar has eclipsed ours. Saturday afternoon marked a first birthday for her friend Anya whose parents hosted a soiree with one of the most delicious spreads I’ve seen in quite a long time. The Georgetown cupcakes didn’t detract from the delicious-ness, either.
Sophia’s daily outfitting consists of pants and a t-shirt, so this dress was quite fancy, fancy and I must say, my to much secret delight, she loved her girly outfit.
We continued our general business with an outing to Bethesda Row … where I was inspired to cook a gourmet dinner.
Let’s not kid ourselves, it looks a little monotone. However, it is anything but monotone in the mouth. Hubby’s famous pan-seared shrimp and my Israeli couscous with Dates, Pistachios, Cardamom and Ginger. A whole weekend, lots of fun, lots of yummy food and new experience with new friends — what else can you ask for?

She looks so cute in this beautiful dress!!!
Oh man, what a cutie your little girl is! And I just love sandals on toddlers. 🙂 OH, and the shrimp dish might be monotone but all I saw was..”NEED TO EAT THAT” and then wished my hubby had a famous shrimp dish. 🙂 I can mentally place a sprig of fresh basil on top for a pop of green if you’d like though, ha.
Aww, thanks! I’ll definitely take a sprig of basil. I can’t get over your little boy’s cut off jean shorts with suspenders!!! Oh and on the NEED TO EAT … your post this morning was … well … as you waned, mouthwatering. 🙂
