Between the DC Wise event, out of town guests, a show at the 9:30 Club and work, this week has gone by at warp speed.  I’m happy it’s Friday even though it means my work week is beginning instead of ending. How was your week? I’m always on the hunt for affordable art and Amber Interiors has some great resources. Cupcakes and Cashmere has tips about how to make a cheap bottle of wine taste amazing. I’m having a dinner party next week and I’m tempted to make these pumpkin spiced peanut butter cups.  Or maybe...

thank you!

Last night’s Mad Men themed party and silent auction was a roaring success.  We raised $26,000 (!!!!) for N St. Village, threw a fantastic event (hello photo booth with props..always a highlight) and everyone had fun.  Most importantly, the money we raised will help many women at N St. Village. I personally would like to thank Cork Wine Bar for donating a wine tasting for 4 and Ford’s Theatre for donating tickets for their new winter play, The Widow Lincoln and a Ford’s Theatre membership.  To all my wonderful friends,...

my favorite happy hours | 14th St., NW

my favorite happy hours | 14th St., NW

I love happy hour.  I like to meet friends early, have a few cocktails, discuss random topics (are you watching American Horror Story Freak Show????  Eiiiieeh!) and get home at a reasonable hour. There’s lots of happy hours on 14th St. but below are my favorites. Barcelona Wine Bar is a chain with locations throughout Connecticut and in Atlanta. Generally, I don’t like chains but this one is clever.  It has a wonderful patio and decent Spanish tapas.  They recently started offering happy hour from 4-6pm.  Go early..this place is popular...

lucky 7

When I think about my wedding day 7 years ago, it always makes me smile.  Everyday I feel lucky to have my husband in my life.  While we have our ups and downs just like any other couple, he’s my biggest cheerleader. As I said last year, he makes me laugh and for that, he’ll always be my #1....

fall bedding | duvets

Every Fall when the temperatures start to drop, I switch from my summer quilt to my down duvet.  This year, I have to replace my duvet cover because it has a tear.  I love my Donna Karan Essentials bedding but my duvet color (a pale grey called Opal) is discontinued.  I’ve found a couple of replacements that will work with my current color palette.  Which one do you like? Matteo linen duvet (currently on sale at One Kings Lane), Dots & Stripe Duvet, Tile Duvet  ...

latest and greatest according to my instagram

It was a heck of a weekend.  We spent 9 hours in the car, attended a wedding, checked out the cute town of Milford, PA (you must go to Fretta’s Italian Deli if you visit..best Italian deli I’ve seen in years), and visited with family.  Then I worked on Sunday and now I’m really tired.  Happy Monday! Do you follow me on Instagram?  You can see all these adventures and my latest and greatest if you do.    ...
