How was everyone’s Memorial Day Weekend? I’m feeling relaxed and ready to take on this short week after a couple of workout classes, some fun brunches (at The Fainting Goat and Martin’s Tavern), a much needed night out on U Street, and lots of reading time–I made my way through three and a half books–so May’s reading roundup will be a good one.
What’s been happening around here?
Last week, I grabbed frozen rosé (or frosé) with my friend Olivia, and it did not disappoint. I’ve found that sometimes rosé has a weird consistency (when I made it myself this time last year, it was definitely refreshing but a little too icey and not as sweet as it could be), but we stopped at Black Jack on 14th Street and found the BEST frosé we’ve ever had. The pictures don’t even do it justice–not only was it super pretty, it was exactly the right consistency (almost Slurpee-like) and dangerously fruity (again, almost like a Slurpee). If you find yourself in the area during happy hour this summer, definitely stop in. At $8, it really can’t be beat, but I’d totally pay the non-happy hour price of $12 for one of these!
On an unrelated note, I wanted to highlight a new page on the blog where I talk about the copyediting services I’m offering. I explain my journalism background in further detail on there, but if you’re looking for an extra set of eyes as you take on blog/freelance work, I’m your girl!
And one last thing…I’m such a die hard spin class girl, but I finally took a pilates class for seriously the first time in years and loved it. I went to a little studio in my neighborhood and had a blast trying something new. I always worry that the class will seem too “slow” for me, but it definitely flew by and I’ll hopefully be able to go back there soon! I really love the energizing atmosphere of spin classes and wasn’t sure if I would feel the same way about pilates, but it was an upbeat, challenging workout for sure.
What did you do this past weekend?
