Wedding Details: The Honeymoon!

After much thought and consideration Ryan and I have decided where we are going for our honeymoon. We recently decided that we would both rather go on a shorter, US trip for now. We wanted to have a few days at home just to relax and recoop and we wanted more time to save more money to go on our "big" honeymoon trip next year.

So we thought and we thought and we decided on a place that we both have always wanted to go. Not only will this be the perfect place for the nerds that we are but what better place to spend our nation's birthday than in our nation's capital...


Yes we will be spending the 4th of July on the National Mall watching a brillant display of fireworks. We will be there for 4 days and we intend to hit up as many tourist spots as we can. We both love history so we want to take it all in. On our "must see" list are the National Mall, the Smithsonian, the Holocaust Museum, the White House, Arlington Park and a few others.

Ryan did a lot of research and everything he found said that the hotel we chose is the best in DC. We will be staying at the Hotel Palomar which is located in Dupont Circle. When we called to make the reservations Ryan told them it was our honeymoon and the instantly upgraded our room. A+ for customer service so far.

Needless to say we are super excited about the honeymoon! Our next goal is to find some great restaurants. Anybody got any suggestions?

I love DC! Make sure you spend some time in Georgetown shopping. :) It is such a cute area. Also, there are free shows every night at the Kennedy Center. When I was there, we saw the National Symphony Orchestra. And one of my best friends from college (Brad Howard--Ryan probably knows him) lives in DC, so I will ask him for some restaurant suggestions for you guys!
