Capitol Hill Block Party 2013

This was husband and my fourth Capitol Hill Block Party together and it's always one of our favorite summer events. This year was special because it was our first one living in the neighborhood, so we were able to walk over to the festival. Like always, we had a blast hanging out with friends in the sun!

My very first cronut! Bacon sriracha from Quinn's. Now we are obsessed.

The Maui jersey I'm wearing actually belongs to my in-laws. They bought it on their one year anniversary trip to Maui over 30 years ago! Husband used to wear it back in high school. So hipster.

Jameson had a VIP private party at Sole Repair catered by Quinn's, so we were able to eat and drink for free all day! The Jameson ice cream was topped with salted pretzel bits and caramel... so amazing.

Girl Talk was the headliner show on Friday night and he was awesome!



  2. This looks like it was an amazing, amazing time. So jealous! I feel like I couldn't enjoy that, even if it were available here. So tired in the evenings!

    I'll have to live through you for a bit, I spose :)

  11. Cronuts - yum. I always get hungry reading your blog.

    I love the jersey... and the story behind it. x

  12. love the maui jersey! my husband and i went there for our honeymoon and fell IN LOVE. we were literally going to drop everything and move but found that the process in bringing in pets to hawaii was intense. and since our dog is older we thought it would be too tough on him. but we love love maui!
