DMV Weekenders

The name says it all, doesn't it?

My neice +Anquinnette Anderson and Paris organized this group of professional women for what they hoped would be a way to connect and network and most of all, have fun being comfortable with like-minded women.

They did themselves proud. I was fortunate enough to be invited to one of their outings, at The Melting Pot in Columbia, MD on May 4th. I arrived nervous but energetic. The women came in and the first thing we all noticed was that the staff was outside and we immediately thought, "are they closed? on strike? or taking a smoke break". Luckily they were just opening and when we sat down we instantly hit it off!

The women ranged in ages from last 20's to early 40's and from single to newly married-13 days.

We laughed, told jokes and enjoyed fondue. Some of us didn't know how to 'cook' using the fondue pots and some of us got a steam facial but we all got something out of it; we gained some new friends.

These ladies talked about everything from reality shows to Jamacian men.

At the end of it all, we all agreed that it was the best Saturday afternoon spent meeting new people and we all agreed that we enjoyed each other's company.

Yes, the DMV weekenders truly are a great group of ladies!
