6 Reasons Why You Should Attend the Ubiquitous Expo

Happy Saturday! I had the pleasure of attending the 2016 Ubiquitous Expo at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC last Saturday (8.27.16).

Things To Do in DC: Visit FREE Museums

Happy Wednesday! I feel so blessed to live in the DMV (DC, Maryland & Virginia area) because I have access to amazing & FREE museums in DC! I've been to New York a few times (here & here) and the museums are not free. In addition, some of them are underwhelming (like the MoCADA) and can't ...

Spring Hiking

Happy Spring! I think it's safe to say that it's FINALLY spring here in the DMV. Spring officially started on March 20th but the weather has been off. It randomly snowed almost two weeks ago and it was really cold last week. However, spring really showed up and showed out this past weekend. It's been showing out ...

Dining at Founding Farmers

Happy Tuesday! Today's post features my favorite restaurant Founding Farmers. It's a lovely restaurant to dine outdoors at especially during the spring and even during the summer (when it's not too hot). Founding Farmers has three locations in the DMV, see here. I prefer the Potomac location to the DC location because parking is convenient and free, the restaurant is less ...

Lunch at Eggspectation

Happy Friday! It's getting warmer and warmer in the DMV. I am so happy! As a result, you can expect more Out 'n' About posts, God willing. I like to take full advantage of the warm weather mainly by walking around outside, acting like a tourist and going to free outdoor events. Somewhere in that list you ...
