Ok first things first—who watched the Royal Wedding this weekend?! I got up around 5:30am and went over to Kristyn‘s apartment to watch with some gals, and we had the best time analyzing everything from Meghan’s loose hair wisp to the royal family’s reaction to Reverend Michael Curry’s impassioned sermon. The British really know how to put on a wedding, and even though my commitment to Harry and Meghan’s nuptials really wrecked my sleep schedule for the rest of the weekend, it was worth it.
This week is shaping up to be a really good one because it ends with my Memorial Day Weekend trip to Key West! I’m sneaking out of work early on Friday, so it really feels like a four-day week. It’ll be nice to spend some time in the sun with one of my good friends from college as we explore another new city together. If you have many must sees or eats in Key West, definitely let me know!
To kick off this fun week before the official start of summer, I thought I’d share 10 things you might not know about me. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts, and, selfishly, I love reading these on other blogs—so I thought it would be fun to share another one so you can get to know me a little better.

I wanted to pop in with a quick post on a fun bar I went to last night here in DC—The Royal Wedding Pop Up Bar! This is the latest themed bar from Drink Company in Shaw—they’ve done popular pop-ups in the last, like the Cherry Blossom Pub and the Christmas Bar, so even though this one is set to close after Sunday, definitely keep an eye out for what they do next.
Located right next to the Shaw Metro on 7th Street, it was super easy to get to the bar itself. Because of its popularity, Monica, Kristyn, Jenn, Laura, and I waited in line for about an hour, and while we were getting antsy as we got closer to the bouncer—who was wearing a t-shirt that looked like a Buckingham Palace guard uniform—it was so worth the wait!
Once we were inside, it really felt like we were transported to Windsor. The front of the bar had a beautiful garden display with so many white flowers. The actual bar itself was lined with British flags, and the bartenders either wore the same t-shirt as the bouncer or Union Jack bow ties. In the back of the bar was a photo booth room complete with a throne. where you could snap pictures with Meghan and Harry, William and Kate, Queen Elizabeth II and her corgis, and Camilla and Charles. The ceilings and windows were made to look like you were inside of a Cathedral. There were Meghan and Harry flags everywhere. Truly no detail was spared and it made me even more excited for the wedding than I already was!

Happy Friday, friends!
How was everyone’s week? Mine was super busy, but it flew by. On Monday and Tuesday, I worked out after work, and then on Wednesday, I was able to get dinner and drinks with two of my great friends from college who I haven’t seen in over a year. We all met through the school paper, The Cavalier Daily, and it was fun to reminisce about old times and comparing our day-to-day lives now. It really is true—the older you get, the more you need people who knew you when you were young.
Last night, I went to a Royal Wedding Pop Up Bar here in DC with Monica, Kristyn, Jenn, and Laura! It was so much fun—and I’m going to write a short recap post I am hoping to get up later today or tomorrow. Kristyn is hosting us at her apartment on Saturday morning for a watch party of Harry and Meghan’s big day, and although I and reading the wake-up time, I am so excited to see them tie the knot—and the nap I plan to take after!
I hope everyone has a great (royal wedding) weekend + stay dry if you’re on the East Coast! x (PS—the picture above was taken from my trip to Clemson, South Carolina last month!)
