no, i'm not talking about florida...
i'm talking about DC! my bags were first packed with leggings and jackets, but after mr p checked the weather I decided I could wear my skirts and dresses leggings-less and jacket-less.... and still be sweating. who would have thought!?
mr p and I took the Acela train down there from Newark Penn Station Friday after work. we have driven there before, usually taking between 4 and 5 hours to get there by the time we make our way through rush hour. this train took us 2.5 hours! I was so impressed. the driving time from jersey city to DC, and from jersey city to boston are about the same, but the train to DC was an hour quicker (totally worth it!!) after taking the train to boston each week for months on end earlier this year, I had so many rewards points built up that we didn't have to pay a dime to go there.
I took my fancy camera with me expecting to document the entire weekend (hey, I don't get to see these friends often!) but I guess I was caught up in the moment and didn't take it out of our friend's apartment the whole time we were there. we danced the night away at dodge city, grabbed late night pizza at & pizza, made breakfast from farmer's market goodies, bbq'ed in a park for a birthday, ate tapas for dinner at bodega, ate brunch at bus boys and poets, and furniture-shopped at miss pixie's vintage and room and board.
...and the only decent picture I have from the weekend is from the metro station. (in case you missed the picture, it's also posted here) 90-degree weather in October will do that do you. at least we got to see our friends in far places, it's the real memories that count :)
