The Lansings

Matthew and I headed home to Virginia this past Thursday for a long weekend at home to see my best friends from home, my family, and to celebrate the marriage of one of my best girlfriends from college and her now husband!! It was such a wonderful trip home–we got to see not only all my besties from Virginia, but my besties from college too, all in one spot! While I wish we had more time to spend with everyone, it was a fabulous weekend!

We started off with lunch with my Mom and Dad on Thursday afternoon when we landed in Dupont.

Next, we went out to drinks at Circa, Dinner at Cava Mezza, then rooftop drinks at Whitlow’s with my atown girls and our significant others! It was sooo fun to see everyone!

On Friday, Matt and I slept in, then went and grabbed a delicious Ethiopian lunch with my family (including my brother who met up with us in D.C.) around the U-Street Corridor. It was delicious and unique! We spent the rest of the afternoon walking around D.C. then took a nap to prepare for the night out.

Friday night, Matt and I met up with Susan, Stephanie, Sean, and Emily for dinner down at the Waterfront in Georgetown at Sequoia!

After dinner we hit up F. Scott’s for the welcome party for CPK & G’s wedding! It was a blast and we had a wonderful time meeting new folks as well as seeing great friends!

My college roomies & I (the bride is on the far right!)–love these girls so much!:

My handsome guy and I!

The next day, Saturday, we went on a 3 mile run around The Mall and explored some of the monuments, then went to lunch with Elaine & Jeffrey in Georgetown, then hit the showers to get ready for the wedding!

The wedding was amazing and the bride looked GORGEOUS!

The speeches, the dinner, the band, the dancing….everything was amazing! I’m so happy for your C&G, you guys filled the room with love and seriously cut a rug during your first dance!! I wish you nothing but a lifetime of happiness and I know you two are meant to be!! xoxo! LOVE YOU!


On Sunday, Matt and I ended the weekend with a yummy brunch in Clarendon with my best friend Tory and her boyfriend! We had a lovely weekend with everyone and were sad to head back to “real life”…good thing we have two more weddings on the docket this July! 🙂
