Hey, isn't that … political offspring Bristol Palin and her husband, Dakota Meyer, toting shopping bags on 14th Street NW on Tuesday?

The Alaskan couple's stormy relationship has long been tabloid fodder, but now it's all marital bliss, it seems — the casually dressed duo held hands as they carried their haul: a garment bag from Men's Warehouse for him, and Gap and Victoria's Secret purchases for her.

No word on what brings the 26-year-old daughter of former Alaska gov and onetime vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her husband to the Lower 48, but 28-year-old Meyer, who was a Marine and a Medal of Honor awardee, often has far-flung speaking engagements.
