Watermelon Cooler

So the Memorial Day weekend forecast doesn't look too promising.

That won't stop me from thinking about basking in the sun by our condo pool that is scheduled to open this weekend! And perhaps enjoying this refreshing concoction that I came up with a few weeks ago.

Watermelon cooler:

3 parts watermelon
1 part water (more or less to taste)

Blend in blender on high until smooth and frothy. Enoy!

This Time of Year

My favorite time of year in the DC area is now! It's getting warmer, the days are longer, but it's not muggy and buggy yet.

A couple of weekends ago, Mike and I wanted to check out the installation piece at the Hirshhorn Museum called Song 1 by Doug Aitken.

Of course, we had to wait till it got dark out, so we sat at the bar at the newly renovated Jaleo. I had been to the Crystal City location once before, but this time, getting recommendations from our knowledgeable bartender, I was really blown away. The cheese and charcuterie plate was amazing, and the multiple tapas dishes we order were all scrumptious in their own unique way.

The best part was a cocktail called The Last Word, and the house made flan to complete our meal.

We then headed to the Hirshhorn and immediately I was mesmerized by the 360-degree projection film that encompasses the entire circular building. It truly is a beautiful piece, and this is the FINAL WEEKEND! So if you haven't already, go see this piece! And hit up Jaleo while you're at it!

Dance My Pain Away

Kinda feel like things haven't been going my way lately. But Spring is here, the sky is blue, and I'm feeling hopeful that good things are to come!

If I ever decide to become a parent, I hope I am at least half as awesome as this guy.

Opening Night!

Tonight is the night! I've been rehearsing with some very talented actors and musicians for a local production of Man of La Mancha. It's been years since I've done anything like this so I am very excited/ nervous/tired/happy!

I'm listening to Lisa Hannigan to calm my opening night jitters. Even the way she speaks is soothing.

Merry Christmas!

So it's been some time! The last time I wrote we were about to leave for our vacation to France and Italy. I wanted my next entry to be about said vacation but organizing my photos has proved to be a challenge.

Instead I will tell you about Christmas. Over the weekend Mike and I went to visit my mom and sis in Colorado. We had a lovely holiday filled with fun, laughter, and gifts. There's nothing like being with family!

Who Am I??

I've been a bit interested in the ancient art of Ayurvedic medicine, especially after watching a documentary about it on Netflix recently. I think the idea is everyone has a different body type and depending on what type you are you should follow a specific diet and make certain lifestyle changes.

A few years back I read a book about Ayurveda but could not for the life of me figure out my type or "dosha". So I was pretty excited to find this quiz. But it turns out that wasn't much help either.

In less complicated matters, here's a pic of me and my buds dressed fancy from an event last week.
