My NWM DC weekend is going to have to be two posts - so bear with me! Too much fun crammed into 48 (or less) hours. All in good fun! We had a blast gallivanting around on Saturday, thus the need for some extra blog love about this amazing, amazing weekend.
Friday night Heather and I landed and got to our hotel by 9:30, where we met up with Trista and my sister.
