Weekend Favorite’s

IMG_0829{Friday evening sunset, this is how you start the weekend}

My schedule is so packed that I never have a minute to be alone for a bit of creative thinking or time to do absolutely positively nothing. And, as much as I would like to slow down the clock, the holidays will be here in the blink of an eye. So, carving out time is always a must each weekend; I begin each morning with a few chores and then call the afternoons and evenings mine.

Saturday afternoon started with a brief fashion show at Bloomingdale’s in Tyson’s Corner with my BFF- Terlene to view the contemporary British designs for women called Hobbs of London. As the champagne flowed it was wonderful meeting those with a similar interest in the fall-winter styles.

Weekend Reprieve

What is it about taking a Friday off from work to enhance your weekend? Is it the added daylight hours or the warmer weather that forces one to sneak off from work? Well for me this added indulgence means heading off to the galleries to see what’s on in Washington DC or the surrounding metropolitan area.

A painting by Claude Monet at the Kreeger, which is a private museum and the former home of David and Carmen Kreeger. Their home was designed by modernist architect Philip Johnson. The couple collected paintings and sculptures from the 19th and 20th century with works by Boudin, Cezanne, Picasso, Van Gogh and Washington’s own artist Sam Gilliam.

And, lastly nothing is more priceless than having dinner with family at our favorite restaurant {Timbuktu’s} in Maryland for crabs, scallops and lobster. We get together each spring break for fun and frivolities.

Stay stylish,
