a visit to Georgetown

Oh, our trip to my parents' in Virginia?  (which is conveniently three minutes from my most favorite city in the world, Washington D.C.)  Yeah, we did lots.  I'll get to most of that eventually but I had to share this little outing to Georgetown.  One of the many things we did that day- but it has to have it's very own post.  Mainly because ever since the first time I went there back in 2004 I fell in love.  The brick streets & sidewalks, the old architecture.  I mean, really.  I don't generally say swoon but that's the only way to describe it.  Swoon! Times infinity.

It was a cloudy/rainy/cold day and all I had was my camera phone so i couldn't do it the justice it deserves but take it form me.  Take a trip there.  Especially if you love shopping and cupcakes (:  Oh yes... and this was also the time Tony and I broke our CUPCAKE FAST!  We went the entire month of October and almost November without a single cupcake (until H's birthday)... we've both decided the only cupcakes worth spending dollars on are these ones.  Georgetown cupcakes... oh and Sprinkles of course!  We'll probably save lots of money since they are currently 9 hours away.  Sigh... I miss it already.
Haha I just realized that guy in the big photo above pushing the stroller wasn't even Tony.  Crap!  Oh well... I guess I'm just continuing the trend of posting pictures of random passer-bys in this post.  But can you blame me for snapping one of those darling preschoolers taking a stroll holding on to loops tied to a rope?  It was just too cute not to.

Oh, and happy December!!  Ack!

Georgetown is most certainly a swoon-worthy town! It is just beautiful. & breaking your cupcake fast (why would you even have one?!) for GT Cupcakes is a must. They are the BEST cupcakes ever. Mmm!
