I thought I'd end the week with one last bit of red, white, and blue for this 5 on Friday. This is a bittersweet Friday as it's already the last Friday in June...how is that possible? I'm linking up with Lauren Elizabeth & Amanda to share a few things from this week (& last week).
1. I made these cupcakes and they didn't turn out as perfect as I had hoped but they were delicious. Yellow buttercream cake + buttercream frosting + berries = delicious! And if anyone has any secrets for how to get all of your cupcakes to come out the same size please let me know!
3. I managed to pull off this double-braid-- I'll probably never be able to get it to look like that again, but I realized it's easier to just try and do my own thing, than focus too much on watching tutorials.
4. Last weekend we had brunch at a new spot on U Street: Vinoteca-- they have the perfect outdoor space. A patio in the front and a back area with a bar, a few tables, and even a place to play bocce. The food was just average, but it was pretty inexpensive by DC standards, so you really can't complain. We'll definitely be back again soon!
