Alexandria Trip - Part 1.

This week has been a busy, sleep deprived one so I apologize in putting the re-cap off for so long!

Our trip to Alexandria, VA was a blast! I love when all most of my favorite people are in one location having a good time together! Which makes me think of how fun our wedding is going to be, no matter what happens! If all of the people we love are there, that will be all we need!

Anyway, back to the trip...

We flew into the Reagan airport around noon and were almost immediately confused tourists. The metro really threw us for a loop, until the nice attendant came to our rescue and explained everything to us. After that, the metro was actually kind of fun! I'm sure it gets old after a while though.

After we stored our bags at the hotel, we walked up King St in hopes of stumbling across a good place to eat lunch. We succeeded! We wound up eating at a place called Hank's Oyster Bar. They had some TASTY bloody mary's....but they're only for horseradish likers because you could DEFINITELY taste the horseradish.
They brought you a cute little bowl of goldfish to start off with!

And they brought you a tasty little bowl of dark chocolate at the end! I think I ate most of it.
After our lunch, we had a few hours to spare so we went into downtown DC to check out all of the tourist-y things.

That night, Savannah and Dan had a welcome party for their out of town guests at The Chart House.  It was so fun to meet Dan's side of the family and to see my friends that don't live in Charleston!
Me with the bride-to-be
The Chi O's

After the welcome party we found a bar with a great DJ and sang, danced and stayed up well past our bedtimes!

Stay tuned for part 2...
