To get into the holiday spirit, my family headed to the National Harbor in DC to look at their decorations. The Gaylord National Resort hotel puts on a gorgeous Christmas display with a train and more!
They even had a life sized Peep there near the train! haha
Outside at the harbor was just as pretty. They had ice skating and a giant tree.
They also have a Peeps store that was all decked out for the holidays. We didn’t buy anything put it was really cute!
There was also a really random weight lifter statue that made me giggle.
This made me so excited for Christmas and to get to see my family again in just a few weeks
Are you getting ready for the holidays?
Because we didn’t spend the actual holiday together, my immediately family and our soon-to-be family member Travis spent as much time together over the long weekend as we could. On Black Friday, we went to Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard near my sister’s house and enjoyed some wine and cheese around the fire. We really liked some of their sweet wines. None of us are really dry wine fans, but they had quite a selection. We did a tasting of 7 different types before deciding on a bottle of Rose.
The winery was really cute and made for a relaxing afternoon It was nice to spend time with family doing something we don’t normally do!
Are you a wine fan? I only like sweet wines!
It has been forever since I have done a WIAW post! I found it fitting, though, to wrangle up all of the miscellaneous food pictures I have taken recently through our travels from the Maryland Eastern Shore to DC to York, PA and back to DC. We were busy little travelers!
Dessert in MD before we left home….ice cream with white chocolate covered pretzels that I bought from the Boy Scouts
Shoofly pie for dessert…soooo good!
Mom’s stuffed shells <3
Banana chocolate chip mini muffins from my mama
Free drinks at Farmers Fishers Bakers waiting for a table to open up! Peach bellini is SO GOOD.
Cinnamon rolls and biscuits
Oh my gosh this is the best place ever.
Corn taco with pulled chicken, BEST KALE SALAD EVER, and some farmer’s hash!
Mini chocolate cupcake and peanut butter caramel cheesecake.
Seriously, if you’re in the DC area, you must go to this brunch. Absolutely the best meal ever.
What’s the best thing you have had to eat lately? I don’t think I could make up my mind if I tried!
