Cherry blossom adventure

 
Saturday we woke up and checked out the bloom cam just to make sure the cherry blossoms were out, since last year we had no luck. We and about a million other people decided to go and see "some trees" - is what my husband kept saying as we made our way through the crowd . He kept saying " all this just for some trees?" He's such a trooper we got him a pretzel and he was cool as a cucumber as I took about 500 pictures of the most beautiful trees this Texas gal has ever seen. They were in full bloom and gorgeous if you haven't ever seen them it's a definite must. I only wish the crowd would've been a lot smaller you know for a better photo op. After all this to see "some trees" we grabbed some tacos, popped a squat and enjoyed the sunshine people watching. Another great day in DC, you keep it up DC and we will never leave.

This weekend i ...

{ Baltimore's City Hall was the perfect view while I munched on a great sandwich}

This weekend was a pretty good one Friday started off with stopping at The Gathering of Baltimore to grab a bite to eat and enjoy the sunshine. I tried a grill cheese/mac & cheese sandwich which was probably one of the best grill cheese's I've ever had. Since the warm weather was here we headed to DC with about a million people to finally overdose on cherry blossom's. They were beautiful definitely worth the wait. I'll be sharing more pictures tomorrow. Overall it was a successful weekend and I was bummed to see it end. Now on to this four day work week. Happy Monday !

If you've listen to my playlists you would know I'm a huge indie rock fan. I don't necessarily like to call it that because it makes me sound like a "hipster" which I am not. But I am a fan of music especially rock. I love discovering new bands and sharing the love so here are a couple of songs I've been listening to. I hope you enjoy! Have a great weekend!

My Sunday best

Do you remember when button -ups were boring ? Thank you J.Crew for changing the way we do button-ups. I spotted Lena Dunham wearing this same shirt on this season's episode of Girls and I remember saying to my husband " I love J.Crew top!" Two weeks later it was my birthday and this was one of my birthday gifts from my hubby. It's now become my Sunday best I can't wait to wear it with shorts and sandals... so hurry up spring make your way to Baltimore.

My night with The XX




*all images edited via VSCO app*
Last week we made the hour drive to Wilmington ,DE to catch The XX first show of their mini 2014 tour. We had such an amazing experience last year when we saw them in Maryland that we were anxious to see them again. This time around they played at a much smaller venue the World Live CafĂ© downtown Wilmington, we were excited that we got tickets to their “intimate” show.  They were a little late coming on but when the lights shut off at 9:40 they began to play The Intro – the wait was worth it. They played some old and new songs which both sounded great.  I enjoyed Oliver’s bass dancing and Romy killed it on vocals.  My only complaint is that the show seemed very rushed  and for a band that has two albums and working on a 3rd you would’ve thought they would have had more material to share with a crowd that waited 2 ½ hours for them.  But regardless Oliver, Romy & Jamie played their asses off for one hour , thank you for the experience.
