i'll say it once and i'll say it probably say it many times again, but never in my wildest dreams when i started this blog did i think i would make friend from it.
but i'm very glad i have. because now i don't know what i would do without so many of them.
on saturday i ventured to washington dc for the night to hangout with maxie, deutlich, livitluvit, lexa and many many many many other talented and amazing bloggers.
after my plane landed in dc and deutlich and maxie came and picked me up and we headed straight to the park for a picnic - a picnic with only minor snafus. i.e. there wasn't a grill.
thankfully we had some macgyver's in our midst because we somehow turned a fire pit into a grill thanks mainly to livitluvit's wonderful boyfriend B, katherine and franco beans. who knew that you could strategically place some sticks and basket weave aluminum foil and turn it into a gill?!?!
but brilliance doesn't hide the fact that i don't like nature, or bugs. i really don't like bugs.
after the picnic me, maxie and deutlich headed over to livitluvit's for an impromptu dance party and lots of vodka consumption before heading over to a bar (somewhere in dc) so help katherine celebrate her 30th birthday.
where we drank lots, took many shots and had the funniest exchange of the entire evening: so i walk out of the bathroom to find that deutlich had dropped her whole beer and glass on the floor causing a huge mess of beer and broken glass on the floor.
obviously i see this and start giving her shit, playfully yelling at her for being a sloppy fool, when simultaneously a girl walks out of the bathroom door that i happened to be standing in front of hitting me in the elbow causing me to drop my drink breaking it all over the floor exactly where deutlich's broken beer glass was still laying.
after the above pic was taken we hopped to another bar to dance and then to another bar to eat - what those bars are called i'm not sure, all i know is that the second, SECOND that i got into deutlich's car to head to her (beautiful) house to crash i was out like a light. maxie was too, so i don't feel as bad.
sunday morning the group got together again for a delicious brunch at bar pilar (see i remembered something!), and we added a friend in marie, who i was so so so excited to meet. even though i had to apologize to her for my hungover dirtiness - it shows the real alexa flavor right?
something else that adds flavor is bacon - and the coolest thing about bar pilar (after the company i was with) was the bacon bloody mary which i had never heard of. i mean it's BACON in a bloody mary which is a win win in my eyes.
so i just went back and read the above post and it doesn't even begin to capture the awesomeness of the weekend or the fabulousness of my DC friends. i was genuinely sad to leave and i'm counting down the days to our next get together in august.
deutlich, maxie and lilu - i can't thank you enough for your hospitality and awesomeness. for serious.
but lilu, you still owe me a video...
