This weekend was one for the books and also enjoyable with our spring weather finally showing up. I have been to D.C. several times, but hadn’t never seen the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. It was a neat museum with lots of cool sites, including the hope diamond. One of my favorite sites to see there. Also, got my picture with my husband in front of the famous T-Rex from Night at the Museum.
After spending a couple of hours in the museum, we went to the national mall where you can see the national monument on one side and the capitol building on the other side. It is so neat to see both of those and reflect on our country. I am so thankful to live in such a great and beautiful country.
Our D.C. adventure ended at a local restaurant called the Protein Bar which had lots of healthy food and delicious smoothies. I definitely recommend this place for a quick bite to eat if you are trying to eat healthier.
Friday evening we enjoyed some ice cream and for me that meant non dairy Ben and Jerry’s ice cream (my new favorite is the peanut butter half baked) and watched The Greatest Showman (The Greatest Showman). One of my new favorite movies! I love the singing and dancing in it and being a musical theatre fan makes it the perfect movie! I definitely recommend watching it, even if you aren’t into musicals. My husband loved it and is not a big musical fan.
Our weekend ended with some shopping at the outlets. I loved being able to shop and try on so many different styles. My favorite outlet stores are Loft, American Eagle, and JCrew. I posted links for all of my clothes in the pictures, including my fun gingham flats I wore in D.C. I normally wear a size XS in the tops and a size 2 in pants.
I hope you all had a fun weekend and enjoyed the outdoors some! Let me know in the comments if you all have any ideas for future blog posts and if you’d be interested in me sharing my hair tips and tricks.
