{night on the town}

What do you wear when you go see a Broadway show? A romantic maxi and some serious sparkle.

The ceiling in the main theater was incredible!

such fun being with my mom and my Mimi!!

Naturally, I made them pose the same way. We were laughing hysterically… everyone was staring!

My mom and grandmother (Mimi) were in town two weekends ago to visit for a girl's weekend. Oh did we do just that!! Three generations with DC at our fingertips? Yep, we made the most of it!

Saturday began with big hugs and sangria as we chatted in my living room. Then we got ready and made our way over to Founding Farmers Restaurant. Y'all. It is SO worth the buzz. The food was delicious! Later that night we went to the John F. Kennedy Center of Performing Arts to see The Lion King. It was just as spectacular as you can imagine! The costumes, the music, the lighting, the percussion, EVERYTHING! I could go on and on. The best part was how the opening scene, "The Circle of Life", began with these amazing animal costumes coming down the aisles. You could practically feel the energy and excitement in the room. The actors were looking right at you as they were singing and the cheetah walked right by us (by far my favorite costume). The whole setting was truly breathtaking. I could've spent hours just looking at the costumes and up at the ceiling at the beautiful crystal lights.
Sunday morning we headed towards U Street to have brunch at El Centro on 14th St. $35 for all you can EAT and drink… don't worry, I tried every tequila cocktail they served ;) and we may or may not have ordered 4 rounds of churros with chocolate sauce. A movie and nap wrapped up the rest of the afternoon. What a weekend. So lucky to have these two women in my life. Love you both!

What other Broadway shows have y'all seen and loved? Has anyone seen The Lion King?

Love Always,
