It's hard to impress me with a burger. I've some awesome burgers in my life -- Burger Joint, Island Burger & Shakes, Shake Shack, Good Burger, Jackson Hole, Pop Burger -- you name it. So when Devra & Sarah invited the DC Metro Moms and other area blogger pals to hang out at Top Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn's Good Stuff Eatery in Capitol Hill, I was game to try yet another renowned burger place.
Thanks to Jess' mad driving skillz, we were two of the first ladies there, and after some catching up with the other moms, it was finally time to order our food. I had the Smokehouse burger and Village Fries with a chocolate shake topper. It was beyond delicious, and surprisingly the burger wasn't a giant, greasy mess. Definitely ranks as one of the top five burgers I've eaten -- ever!
The real treat, however, wasn't the amazing food but the awesome group of ladies I got to reconnect with. Along with the crew of DC moms I already knew, I got to meet Sue from My Party of 6, JJ from Caffeine and a Prayer, the adorably pregnant Diana from Diana Caffeinated, Claire Jess from Crunchy-Chewy Mama and a gaggle of very cool Amy/ie/s.
As most of you who are reading along know, I've had an awful year. I'm sad a lot. I cry a lot. This Mother's Day is shaping up to be the worst day ever, so getting out and just having fun was simply the best.
