Rosa Loves… Brunch in DC. 

You all know that brunch is my favorite meal and every weekend I look forward to enjoying a morning of delicious food with friends. The photos of these wood-fired pecan sticky buns I took at Blue Duck Tavern over the weekend are evidence of how awesome brunch can be in the city. Yes, brunch in DC rocks, especially when hanging out with lovely people like Arlita

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Rosa Loves… The perfect weather for a day in Georgetown.

After a few days of rain and incredibly high levels of humidity, which were responsible for my ‘crazy hair’ last week, we finally had gorgeous weather this weekend. I got up early on Sunday morning and after watching a couple of episodes of ‘Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown’ with my husband, I was on my way to Georgetown to meet Arlita of Rock and Sole for brunch. Since the metro is kind of unpredictable on the weekends, I ended up arriving earlier than expected to my destination. Luckily, Olivia Macaron was open so I stopped by to say hello to Ana Claudia, the owner of the shop, and to get some tasty macarons for a birthday gift. Once I met Arlita, we decided that since the weather was just perfect, a table outside at Peacock Cafe was a fabulous idea. Over cocktails and eggs Benedict, we had such a great conversation and we were able to learn a little more about each other. We then walked around Georgetown for a bit on our way to a Sweet & Spark Party and admired the beautiful houses in the neighborhood. 

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend too!

Rosa Loves… Brunch with one of our favorite DC bloggers. 

Blogging has given me the opportunity to meet awesome people. One of them is the lovely Wave of Pich and Roor. Honestly, it’s so hard not to love her; she’s funny, sweet, and has an incredibly kind heart. On Saturday, a group of friends and bloggers got together for brunch at Bistro La Bonne to say goodbye to Wave as she is moving to NYC. We spent nearly 3 hours at brunch; clearly everyone wanted to spend as much time as possible with this fabulous lady before her move. After an epic selfie, we all said our goodbyes. While we are sad to see her leave DC, we cannot wait to hear all about her new adventures in NYC.

We’ll miss you Wave! DC will not be the same without you. NYC is really lucky to have you.

Rosa Loves… Deviled eggs & French toast after a fashion show.

I started my day very early on Saturday because I had errands to run before meeting Liz. A couple of weeks ago, we had found out that Kara was hosting a fashion and beauty trend event at Neiman Marcus and we thought it would be something fun to do. After the fashion show, we were super hungry so we headed over to Ardeo+Bardeo in Cleveland Park. I love this place for brunch, it never disappoints. I decided to try the deviled eggs and the French toast this time and both dishes were equally delicious. Liz is quite the foodie and loves to take photos of her meals just like I do; we had a great conversation about photography, food, and life in DC.

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.

Rosa Loves… Mini Donuts & Champagne.

I love brunch and a couple of weekends ago, I think I might have overdone it a bit. I hadn’t seen some friends in a while so I scheduled brunch dates on Saturday and Sunday. It was awesome. I met Ashlyn and Faith at NoPa Kitchen + Bar that weekend and our brunch involved champagne and a sampler of mini donuts, which included churros with chocolate sauce, vanilla donut holes with mascarpone cream, and chocolate donuts with caramel sauce. Diagnosis: Delicious! No, wait, incredibly delicious! I honestly think that donuts and champagne are a fabulous combo, especially when spending time with these ladies. 

DC Event Alert: The DC Meet Market starts again on Saturday, April 5th in Logan Circle and it is a great family event. I’ve been before and I love it. It features some of my favorite local vendors, including Baked & Wired and Diament Jewelry as well as local artist Kelly Towles. Click on the button on the right column for more details.

Rosa Loves… Waffles, bacon & mimosas.

We got a bit of a break from winter on Saturday here in DC. After getting 7 inches of snow earlier in the week, we were able to enjoy a beautiful spring day. Carmen, Rebecca, and I decided to take full advantage of it and had brunch at B Too. We even got a table outside; the weather just couldn’t be more perfect. Over waffles, a mini bucket of bacon, and mimosas, we had a lovely chat about consignment shopping and the possibility of more snow this week. Oh well, we can’t wait for spring to arrive and stay here for good. 

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the warmer weather too.
