Surviving pre-school: D.C. area blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. If work's got you down, just think: Many of you are one day closer to a three-day weekend thanks to Monday's President's Day holiday. Until then, distract yourself with some great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere. We've got a report from the front lines of the Valentine's Day weekend cupcake skirmish in Clarendon. No blood was shed, but a trail of buttercream ... From a new blog we just discovered -- Mom of a Million Mistakes -- here's are some tips on surviving pre-school -- for parents.

Valentine's Day may be over, but to me, loving chocolate is a year-round activity, so this post from EveryFoodFits was especially welcome. Kimpton Hotels are sponsoring a chocolate lovers day, Feb. 17. Chocolate tastings, wine specials. What's not to like? Details here.


Clarendon Nights has a report on the pre-Valentine's Day cupcake war between competing shops. Champagne? Free wine tastings with mini cupcakes? Sounds like competition is good for the consumer.

Secrets to surviving pre-school (for parents) from Mom of a Million Mistakes via Wheaton Patch. Secret #1: No one minds a store-bought treat on party days. Only home bake if you love it and have time.

With this glorious picture and post, Tim at The 42 blog reminds us that baseball returns to Washington next month.

The Capitol Fashionista has some great shots from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Some shots from Rachel Roy's show and love the red gown from Luca Luca.

Chocolate? Fashion? What more could we ask for? Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the day. I'll be back tomorrow with more great posts from the D.C. area blogosphere.
