Let's go to PHILLY!!!!!

Sorry for the blog delay! This weekend was crazy. One of my best friends from high school, Andree, came in town for the weekend! She is super busy being a celeb in LA so Deanna and I were so happy she made an appearance for the 4th of July weekend!
Deanna, Andge, and I waaaay back in 9th or 10th grade..yikes.

And us now! Plus our other friend from high school, Megan! :)

Of course we thought it would be a good idea to take several rounds of reunion shots Friday night at Third Edition in Georgetown. Great bar, but not the atmosphere for a low key evening. Saturday morning when we finally were up and alive around one in the afternoon, (probably still intoxicated) we decided it would be a FANTASTIC idea to drive to Philly and do the Philly Cheese Steak Challenge. Eventually, sobriety set in and we considered that it was already two o'clock, there would be holiday beach traffic, and there are plenty of places to get cheese steak that weren't three hours away, so that idea went right out the door. Instead we went into Georgetown...SHOCKING!

Michelle, Andree's little sis, took us to this AMAZING cupcake shop. It definitely doesn't have the hype of Georgetown Cupcake or Sprinkles- but then again that's what made it even better. It's called "Baked and Wired." They specialize in pastries and coffee with a serious illegal substance undertone. ;) Their icing is nothing short of heavenly, and everyone is SUPER duper friendly which is a rarity, especially in Georgetown. 
Then we enjoyed our low-calorie treats by the Georgetown Waterfront. I got the "Karen's Birthday" flavor- chocolate cake with white buttercream icing, DELISH! 

Oh, and gazed at the people partying on their yachts, seriously who do we have to make friends with in this town...?

Well, that's only a small look into an amazing 4th of July weekend! More restaurant reviews, recipes, and totally deep insights about life coming soon from yours truly as I sit here and sweat on my deck and further put off job searching!
