Last weekend was gorgeous. I mean really, really. When the weatherman says the phrase "low humidity," which is so rare in the swampland that is DC, people usually do a double take, then drop everything and head outside. We had planned to do work on the house all weekend, but those plans were deferred for lazing about outside, enjoying the breeze (there was a breeze!) and just in general loving life.
We went to eat at Le Diplomate, a French café near Logan Circle.
The whole entryway is beautifully tiled, but I tried to minimize the obnoxious instagramming and just snapped a quick pic.
If anyone's curious, I had a gruyère omelette with a green salad, and it was maybe the best omelette I've ever had in my life. I did actually take a pic with my phone, but it just didn't do it justice.
When we were walking to the restaurant, we saw a stack of books on the street with a "FREE" sign on them, one of which was this beautiful hardbound art book from the National Gallery. I have been really good about not buying books for a while because we really don't have space for them, but it was free and I have my limits, people. It was published in the 60s or 70s and has pretty cool old photos in the intro also. Maybe I'll post some pics of the inside pages later this week.
Next stop was millennium, which is a cute shop that stocks mostly mid-century furniture and accessories. We were looking for a nightstand for Peter, and they had a couple of contenders. We didn't have the car, though, and we didn't really see anything we loved enough to drive back into town the same day. I've heard their merchandise turns over quickly, so I doubt either of them are still there at this point.
This shop is tiny but packed with goodness. Maybe they won't notice if I just move into a corner somewhere.
I snapped a few pics when we were walking around, but I'll save those for another post. I can't really remember what else we did that day, but I'm sure it involved coffee and sunshine. :)
So, what about you guys? Did you have an awesome weekend too? Anyone else wanna paint their house like a watermelon?
