Thanks to a coworkers forward, we went on a tour of houses in northern VA with really over the top Christmas light displays. Unfortunately I took pictures with my now defunct AT&T phone. Until I manage to get those emailed, maybe a picture from this less tacky display on Pennsylvania Ave will be a good placeholder.

After a fast paced NYC weekend, we were happy to stay around town this weekend. We did brunch at Founding Farmers (thanks Jen & Robert!!)
I had a Pimms cup and carrot cake pancakes...(mouth waters) and Barrett had steak and eggs.
On Sunday, after Mass, we had a shopping excursion south of DC. Bernadette's reward for her patience was a visit to the Shirlington Dog Park. She loved it! She was like a kid on the first day of school: really excited but a little scared, too.
All in all, a great weekend was had by all.

Not really like the movie, though we witnessed several Salvation Army ringers who brought microphones and were convincing everyone to sing Frozen tunes! It was a successful fundraising approach.

Barrett (and Bob) had a scrumptious burger at Scarlotta, it had chunks of brisket in it!!
We went to see the Rockettes and Santa at the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular. Super awesome!!
And Bob captured us on the big screen in Timea Square, that's Barrett waving next to the "t" in tkts

There were a few familiar faces, but lots of new ones, too. My favorite beer of the night was Anderson Valley Winter Solstice, but there were a lot of really tasty offerings we enjoyed 2 oz at a time.
Barrett pondered buying a kilt, and I enjoyed some mead.
Just trying to keep you guessing!

Our night shift concierge, Debbie, gave us a great recommendation for breakfast this morning: Saints Paradise Cafeteria...where LOVE is the main ingredient!
This was about a 1/2 mile from our apartment and it was a brisk morning walk, but we were not disappointed!
Also, we sat next to the Pastors reserved rable, hoping he might show.

Due to some bathroom renovations, Barrett's parents have welcomed he and I to stay with them as we prepare to leave for our fishing trip.
The feline host, Albert, joined Barrett and I for some snuggles while we watched Scandal. He asked a lot less questions than Barrett.
