Cherry Blossoms

Yesterday kicked off DC's 99th annual Cherry Blossom festival. We decided to make an appearance despite the temperature. It was in the upper 40's here yesterday, but the sun was shining so it turned out to be a pretty nice day. The first year I lived here I went to the cherry blossoms with my friend Melissa on the most gorgeous spring day. I should say I went to the cherry blossoms with Melissa and the rest of America on that day. I think yesterday's temps scared some people off so all around it was much more pleasant walking around the Tidal Basin. As you can see the blossoms are beautiful!

Later Matt and I went to dinner at Mad Fox Brewery in Falls Church. Both of us purchased a living social coupon a while back and we decided to try it out last night. We both bought it because it's a restaurant that specializes in beer and pickles. If you know me, you know pickles are pretty much my first love and beer isn't so bad either :) I really like this restaurant. The ambiance was great. You could see the brewing tanks, and it was really open, and had a cool bar. We couldn't even decide what we were going to eat there were so many good options. We got the fried pickles (the whole reason I bought the living social), fig and balsamic pizza, and ribs. Everything was delicious. I can't wait to go back to try all the other stuff we wanted.


  1. Love the pictures! Sounds like y'all had a great weekend! Although, I can't believe y'all got snow after the Cherry Blossom Festival had already started! Craziness!

  2. Oh, man. I am sitting here salivating. It's disgusting really. Can we please go eat fried pickles and drink beer when I come visit (this summer!)???
