I hope everyone had an amazing and relaxing Mother’s Day!

These are some photos from our girls trip to D.C.! My mom had been wanting to go for so long so us girls surprised her with a trip there. I actually hadn’t ever been either so it was a fun first for me too. The Ritz Carlton hosted us and we felt completely spoiled – it is such a gorgeous hotel. They just did a remodel and its so pretty. We had mocktails at Quadrant on the main floor and they were soo good πŸ™‚ also so many of you asked why mocktails and asked if I am pregnant haha – not pregnant but I just don’t drink alcohol and neither do my sisters or mom.

We did the White House tour, Holocaust museum, Lincoln Memorial, National Art Museum, Mount Vernon, Arlington National Cemetery, Washington Monument, D.C. Temple, Archives Building, and lots more. We had busy days and walked around and tried to see as much as we could. My mom basically cried at each memorial and would say “I just love America” haha she is so cute. There was a Sweetgreen right by our hotel and it had a new salad on the menu I hadn’t tried – their ceasar salad but not just any ordinary caesar salad β€” you have to just try it. SO GOOD. We also ate at 2Amy’s which was amazing! I brought home Baked and Wired cookies and cupcakes for David and I to try that night too.

Also this Vince coat that I wore basically the whole weekend is one of my best ever purchases. I got it when I was pregnant with Rosie two years ago and seriously still LOVE it.

Hope you all had a good weekend – ours was incredible!!!! Will post about our weekend later this week!

  11. I could see the D.C. temple from my bedroom window growing up- I thought a princess lived there 😍

  12. Hi Amber! I just have to ask you a question I’ve been wondering for a long time. What’s your job? Or what did you educate as? Been wondering about this for years now, because i feel like you’ve always just spent time with your family and doing crazy fun stuff.

    Love from a 17 year old norwegian girl who think you have the ultimate dream life. Almost feel like I know you after following you for so many years. I remember when you came to Bergen a couple of years ago. I live just a couple of hours away and wanted to meet you soo bad but had to stay home since it was the national day.. Truly adore you and look up to you!

  13. Love this post it looks like you ladies had a blast together :)! Happy belate Mother’s day Amber! How was the White house tour btw? My friend is moving to D.C. in August and we were thinking of trying to do one.

    I also loved the red/pinkish (?) swimsuit you wore when you were wish your sisters. Do you remember where you got it? πŸ™‚

  18. I love these photos! I think I spotted someone in the background wearing a colonial outfit – so fun! A white house tour would have been at the top of my DC list, so cool you got to go and experience it. We all need a little girls trip and this one looks so fantastic!

  23. Hi Amber, I’m glad to see your post! I was starting to get a bit worried that something happened since it seemed like you hadn’t posted in a while! So nice to know you had a little “break”. The D.C. trip must have been fun! I’m from Richmond so it’s a short trip for us luckily, and I just love going up there.. Especially for the Cherry Blossoms festival. Have a good week and Happy belated Mother’s Day! xoxo Magdalena

  24. Glad you had a girls trip, especially in DC! I miss my mother and sister and I really want to do a girls trip with my ladies too!Your family is so beautiful and your mother looks great! She looks younger than you because you look like you have fifty years old.
