We left for DC around noon and checked into our hotel around 2:30, giving up plenty of time to nap and catch some Shark Week before heading out to the concert. We ended up staying at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza, thanks to Michelle who pulled some strings and got us a great deal. The place was very nice and within walking distance to the concert venue so it was a win-win for us.
Once we rested up, we were ready to hit the streets and head towards the Verizon Center. We stopped along the way for some burgers at the Green Turtle and after the girls had a few daiquiris, we were ready to dance the night away with Britney and Nicki Minaj.
Michelle and Angie, petrified of how high up we were. Until the Bud Light kicked in. ;)
Lindsey, and myself, ready for B. Spears.
The only halfway decent picture of Nicki Minaj I have.
After Nicki Minaj opened, the crowd went absolutely nuts for Britney. She sang about 5 or so new songs to start out with, which I have never heard, but when Hit Me Baby One More Time started, the audience had a whole new vibe. Every single person was on their feet and was singing along. This was the Britney we knew and loved! The show was amazing. Next time, we'll definitely be springing for the good seats. ;)
Oh, and I can't forget! Look who I ran into at the concert.
I knew my girl Megan would be there but with over 5000 people, I never guessed I'd actually find her!
Loved seeing you boo!
After the concert, we decided we'd head in the direction of our hotel while trying to find a cab. Needless to say, we ended up back in our room before ever seeing an available taxi. Then, it was more Shark Week, a pizza from a rude delivery man, and then bed.
Monday morning, we all got up, showered and headed to the outlets to do some much needed shopping. After several hours of trying on clothes, trying not to spend our hard earned money in Vera Bradley, we were all exhausted and ready to head home.
It was an amazing weekend with my amazing BFF's and I can't wait until next time. :)
