There’s no better place to celebrate the 4th of July than in Washington D.C., right?
Actually I can think of one better place: at THE WHITE HOUSE.
Thanks to my good friend Kerry (who works for VP Joe Biden), I get the crazy opportunity to dine with the President at his annual 4th of July Garden Party (OK, so he’ll probably stay inside, but still, I get to grub on some ribs on the FREAKIN WHITE HOUSE LAWN).
I was invited to this amazing shindig a few weeks ago while I was walking back from the Museum Mile Festival along 5th Avenue. Just minutes after texting back the words “YES, OF COURSE I’LL COME” to Kerry, what did I do? I slipped and fell on the sidewalk and broke my ankle.
But am I gonna let that stop me from potentially hanging out with these guys?
With that said, I’ve been obsessively shopping online (since I’m couch bound), trying to figure out the perfect outfit. Potential options include:
So far I’m leaning toward the RBL Maxi Dress and the red studs. Since it will be July in D.C. it’s going to be hot and humid (my favorite weather combination) so I’ll most likely sweat through whatever outfit I decide to wear. Swamp back here I come. Oh, yeah, and I’ll definitely be rocking a large leg brace (and possibly crutches). But it’ll be well worth it to have the chance to watch an incredible outdoor concert (yes, I know who’s performing but I can’t reveal it yet), chat with some interesting people, and watch fireworks from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Make sure to check back next month to find out all about it!
*Note to self: Buy Bo some 4th of July doggie treats. That way if this ends up happening, I’ll be prepared:
