So these type of posts usually aren't my favorite to write, but I know sometimes people enjoy reading more lifestyle blog posts so I thought I'd share a few highlights from the weekend. (plus, it's an excuse to linkup with Biana for weekending!)
We finally got around to seeing The Martian! I liked the cast and would recommend it, but as usual I definitely prefer the book to the movie. We also watched the movie Run All Night-- it's one of those unrealistic Liam Nielson movies, but it was actually pretty entertaining and a good action/suspensefulish flick.
We visited my favorite store (Home Goods) and picked up this picture for $16.99! I kind of wish it featured a poodle and the Chrysler building, but it's still New York and I love it.
When I was commenting on one of Alanna's recent blog posts, one of the little suggestion links for her older posts was about best DC brunches so I naturally had to check it out. Copperwood Tavern was one of her suggestions, so we checked it out on Sunday and it was so good! I had the waffle, which is usually my standard breakfast/brunch order and it was delicious. My husband had a breakfast sandwich and his food was equally good. It definitely seemed to be very family friendly and had a nice relaxed feel to it.
After brunch we stopped by the Renwick Gallery-- it recently reopened after being closed for renovations. We had been once a few years ago before it closed, but we both really loved the current exhibit, Wonder. It was cool because the artwork was abstract to an extent, but when you read what the inspiration was behind the pieces they totally made sense. Maya Lin used marbles to demonstrate the Chesapeake Bay. My favorite was the rainbow threads-- it was so cool in person, it really did look like light rays not string! Wonder is on display through July so I definitely recommend in for anyone visiting DC-- it's right by the White House and doesn't take a lot of time to go through.
Andddd we are officially half way through November-- just one more weekend left before Thanksgiving! I hope you guys all had a great weekend and have an extra large coffee for the start of a new week.
