I drove to NOVA Friday to see Becca and spend some quality time with mom and dad. Becca and I snuck Cinnabon into the movies (we saw Moonrise Kingdom - so should you) but still had enough room in our bellies for Ozzie's after. We're both huge fans of the Great American Restaurants, but neither of us had tried Ozzie's yet. I started with the arancini and she started with the arugula, fig and apple salad. We split the beef short rib ragu with marscapone polenta... yup, it was as good as it sounds. GAR's never go wrong. Our waiter told us the ragu was the wait staff's collective favorite, and we could see why!
Saturday was spent doing returns, shopping and... wait for it... eating at another Great American Restaurant. I can't help it! Carlyle is my family's fav. We popped into Le Village Marché and Best Buns (where I picked up a coconut macaroon and a loaf of poblano cheddar bread). I picked up a few goodies for the house at TJ Maxx and World Market - can't wait to show you!
Today I'm back in Frederick nursing a day-long headache and angrily eyeing the hardwood floors, which are covered in dog hair no matter how many times a week I vacuum. I'm hoping I'll have more energy/creativity to blog this week.
To make up for the lack of a fashion post on Friday, here are two more tucking-in pics. Embrace the tuck!
