Washington, D.C.- Day 1

Happy Monday! We arrived in D.C. Saturday night and I'm pumped! I've never been before and I'm going to sightsee the crap out of the next 9 days!

Saturday night, we went to a really cool local pub, The Sixth Engine. We had black truffle and goat cheese, Mac N Cheese, Flatbread and homemade chips! It was a great meal!

Sunday, I went out sightseeing all day while Brian was in meetings. I started by walking to and around the Capital. I started pretty early in the day so I was lucky to be able to get some great shots without to many tourists and runners in my way :) 

After I conquered the good ol' Capital, I headed down the mall and walked to the National Monument.

Once I walked the Mall, I headed into town a little bit and had brunch at Teaism. I'm not a coffee or tea drinker, so I settled on french toast and cilantro scrambled eggs. It was good and I wish I drank tea because they had about a bajillion to choose from.

After brunch, headed towards The Smithsonian of Art and Portrait Gallery. It was cool for awhile but it was so nice out and I needed to escape and get back outside! 

Made out of foil!

I somehow discovered some very nice shopping as I was headed to Fords Theatre and decided to spend the rest of the afternoon outside rather than inside. It was sunny and 55 out and the last thing I wanted to do, was be inside! I stumbled upon Lou Lou's and I love this boutique! It's super cute and a local boutique here.

I did some more shopping, saw Fords Theatre, The Navy Memorial and then headed back to the hotel. Brian was out at 3pm and it was so nice we decided to rent bikes! We always rent bikes on vacation if it's available and this was a perfect place to do it! I had been walking for 6 hours and my tootsies needed a break!

We ended the day at The Dubliner for some fish and chips and chicken pot pie!

That's it for Day 1! Today I am headed out to lunch with Brian and then going to Union Station! I will update tomorrow!
