Big news everyone, this weekend I became an official DC resident!
If you follow us on instagram (or check our our new instagram feed sidebar! –>>) you’ll probably have seen some of these photos, but a catch up from September and the first week in October is probably in order. We’ve been moving and shaking here at LoL.. guests visiting, work travel, work in general, weekend fun & more!
Too cute,, right? Shes adoptable!
infact, S & I had to be dragged away NOT to adopt her..
you saw this recipe right?”
I’ve also ended up at eastern market EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND. It just never gets old…
I want them all
Its still been unbelievably warm in DC, considering that its October now. I’m ready for fall personally!
sidenote: some of the photos borrowed from Lindsay at seayoulater.wordpress.com but I was there.. so it still counts 😉
DC is said to be a ghost town in August. Congress is out on recess, and everyone else is on vacation escaping the crazy DC heat & humidity. Well, even though neither of us are Hill staffers, we decided to embrace that outlook anyway and took a short hiatus for some summer fun (and work!) in August.
Here’s just a few pictures and snipits of what you missed while we were away (don’t worry – we’ll go into more detail soon with some belated posts about our adventures):
S – From bridal showers to baseball games, with 2 weeks of traveling in between!
E – Traveling home, friends visiting, taking advantage of the fantastic warm weather!
What have you been up to?

When we first started this blog, we warned you there may be posts like this….and we’ve been pretty good about hiding our obsession so far. But we HAD to take to the blog today for this public service announcement about the BEST.INSTAGRAM.EVER. Usually we save Thursday posts for “What’s Getting Us Through the Week,” but I’ve been so obsessed with this Instagram that it’s basically the only thing I’ve even been doing all week anyway. And after showing it to Elyse, I’m pretty sure she feels the same.
Introducing: PUPPY PLAYTIME.
The pups! taken from puppyplaytime instagram!
I first discovered this page when I (perhaps mistakenly) searched #shibasofinstagram and spent about an hour looking at all the adorable Shiba pics! As you may know, Elyse and I are both proud Shiba owners and we just can’t get enough of em! The owner posts a few pics a day of both Axle the cuddly Shiba puppy and Leeroy the goofy chocolate lab.
So if you’re on Instagram, you NEED to follow these two little guys! And if you’re not on Instagram…you need to get one for this reason at least! Can’t wait to see my little Shiba pup this weekend at home! 🙂
If you’ve ever wondered what happens when you google “Sequester + Puppies” – fear no more, I have the answer. It is this.
Being in DC, we’ve obviously been hearing non-stop about sequestration over the past few days and this adorable buzzfeed article with puppies definitely helped make light of it. So regardless of how you feel about the sequester, or what side of the aisle you happen to be on, I think we can all agree that puppies make everything better.
Here’s to hoping we make it through tomorrow!
This weekend I flew home to my dear New Hampshire for a 2 day, 3 night stay at home. The trips home are never long enough and I always find myself sad to leave. Ho hum, I suppose its just part of growing up.
Anyways, one of my favorite things to do at home is go to Beaver Brook– 2000 acres of land and over 30 miles of trail to hike, bike, horseback ride around or in my case walk around with the dogs!
At 20 degrees outside my mom and I were quite bundled so forgive the outfits but it was otherwise a beautiful afternoon:
into the wild we go
Our fearless leaders
Mom & me (I told you we were sporting goofy winter attire)
Okay so maybe I have an obsession with these two pooches, but I just love them so much! Last pictures of them I swear
my what big teeth you have
& my number one little man!
We spent a great majority of our time curled up by the fire keeping away from the cold. Sweet home NH!
