A Day of Adventures in Old Town Alexandria

Hi guys!

I'm sorry for being one of the worst bloggers ever! Life has been kicking my ass but I finally uploaded and edited pictures from last Friday so I wanted to share them with you.

Unfortunately, my boyfriend and I had work on Valentine's Day so we had a late dinner at Cooper's Hawk Winery (which is amazing by the way!). We also wanted to have a day to just sleep in and be with each other without school and work getting in the way, so we both asked for Friday the 16th off to have a little late Valentine's Day celebration. We actually ended up doing the opposite of all ideas we had discussed earlier on but those are the best dates anyways!

We started our day with lunch. I felt really bad because my boyfriend really wanted Brunch (I did too!) and we went to Jackson's thinking they might be serving some (but they only serve Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays). We still decided to pig out though. I love their Lobster Cobb salad and my boyfriend had crab cakes. One of the best parts about living in Northern Virginia is the Great American Restaurants chain! They have the best bread (called "Ozzies" if you ever get a chance to go to one and want to ask for some).

After lunch, we headed back home. I was a little discouraged because it was raining and full of food, so I didn't feel like doing much of anything. We watched a movie on Netflix called "How We First Met" (my boyfriend is a sucker for romcoms, however - me, not so much). It was kind of funny, Adam Devine was in it if you've ever watched Workaholics! 

After our food digested and the movie finished, we decided to get off our butts and try to do something outside for the rest of the day. We ended up going to Old Town Alexandria (I have never been before - unless I was a little kid and I don't remember). We walked around and looked at the houses and little shops. We were full off of our lunch so we had no desire to eat right then. My boyfriend snapped a few pictures of me for me to post here. 

I also took some pictures of local shops that are worth checking out! 

Chart House is near the harbor!

King Street

A store with lots of preppy clothes!

Once we got bored with Old Town we went to Georgetown! We got lucky and the line at Georgetown Cupcake was short so we got some. 

From L-R, top to bottom: Strawberry Cheesecake, Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Teddy Bear Red Velvet, and Red Velvet Swirl Cheesecake 
After getting cupcakes we just walked up and down M Street, going in and out of stores. When we finally got hungry we decided to get some burgers and fries at Good Stuff Eatery!

Anyways, I don't want to make this post too long. I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's day whether you were single or had someone special (for 21 years my Valentine has always been my mom and my dog). I can't wait to make more posts for you guys <3 p="">
