The Twins go to DC! Well, technically little J already lives there. The real reason for the trip was to try on bridesmaid dresses for the upcoming nuptials of Big Brother. Turns out, a bridal store like David’s Bridal was everything I dreamt it to be and more:
Average bridal customer
The worst part? We had to register our information since the bride didn’t have an account (got her dress elsewhere). Which means we inevitably are on 39473865 wedding mailing lists now, great! But on the bright side, the dresses were cute (& inexpensive), the wedding will be in Puerto Rico, and The Twin bought me a burrito afterward.
After the suburban scare known as Springfield, VA.. we headed off to Georgetown, where I was able to acquire my much-lusted after whale hat from Vineyard Vines!
For professional preps only
First seen at the Head of the Charles last year, I had been on a mission to get one of my own. The VV store in Copley was giving them away to children last November (I was too mortified to ask for one), but finally I was able to procure one in Georgetown!
Afterwards, we headed back to The Twin’s abode in Columbia Heights, where there were presents for yours truly waiting:
Yes, that’s a WALL-E toothbrush, al paca figurine from Peru, and CHOCOLATE COVERED BACON!!
Next day: Nat’s game. Sorry to say to my beloved Bravos, Nationals Field is pretty much the nicest ballpark I’ve been to (although have not made it to the new Yankee Stadium). Even the recycling containers were awesome.

The best part? The Presidents race, of course. Like sausages except our fearless leaders and not in Milwaukee.
Abe takes a huge lead
But then stops to tear up a Mets sign
George, Tommy J and Teddy all take advantage
But Abe doesn't seem to care
After the game, the Presidents were out and about in the stadium. I got to say hello to GW.
George really liked my new Dooney
And of course, the best president of them all..
And this is totally unrelated, but I really like this shirt:
Prey Twin weekend = success.
