10 Things to do before May 9th

One of my good girlfriends was asking me the other day to make a list of 10 things I would love to do before leaving Washington. Oh my! I told her that recently I do not feel like there is enough time in the day. Between packing, working and trying to sleep, my time in this fabulous city is ticking away. I have SO loved calling Washington DC my home for the last almost 7 years. It was fun for me to put together a list of things I really want to do before I leave. It is pretty funny because of the items include food and beverage...what's new! I hope I can check off my list in the next two weeks!

1. Pictures of the city - everybody who knows me knows I LOVE taking pictures. I would love to be able to get some photos of me and girlfriends around the city. In front of the White House, the Capital, on the terrace of the Newseum, the Kennedy Center.

2. Glass of Champagne on the Lincoln Memorial - Remember the scene in Wedding Crashers where they end their night on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial drinking champagne....well I do. I would like to have a little bubbly there as well.

3. Margaritas at Lauriol Plaza - This DC restaurant gives me memories of being an intern in DC. Margaritas, Sangria and good Mexican food.

4. Run around the mall - I do this now but recently I've been so busy, I need to do this and take it in during the early morning.

5. Drinks out - W hotel, the view is just so wonderful at this hotel! Drinks at the Gibson, outdoors.

6. Cupcake tour of DC - Georgetown Cupcake, Baked and Wired, Hello Cupcake. I think I need to have a bite of each before I leave.

7. Happy hour wine tasting - Zola wine bar and kitchen has wine tastings through out the week. I have been saying I was going to take advantage and go. I should realllllly do this soon.

8. Shopping in Georgetown - no explanation needed.

9. Washington Monument - I have never been to the top of the monument.

10. Tour of the White House - please? Can somebody arrange this?

Ok, I had to add this picture. It was too funny.

I will miss DC. Thanks for being a good home for me.
