Here I am at the end of my vacation (insert “booooooo” here). There’s so much to say and so little time to do it… so I’ll summarize the highlights for you:
-Interesting people are found on planes. The worst that I spotted was a mother and son team that matched. Not coordinated for a family photo- but matched as they were walking through an airport. Mother and daughter coordinating I get… but really- that poor kid. Loeb’s Deli was where we ate as soon as we got to DC and were on our way out to explore. It was also the place where I got assaulted by a crazy old woman in the bathroom for “crowding her at the sink”. I was leaning in the mirror and fixing my makeup. But apparently that’s reason enough for a good shove and cursing. Good to know.
- It’s hot in DC. Like super hot. Which is unfortunate for when you decide to walk EVERYWHERE. But we persevered. And perspired. And covered some serious mileage during our trip. Check out a few of the sights we walked to:- I realized that boy will be boys. As my brother and I were taking this picture, there were two men to the side of us making the Washington Monument strategically placed in their picture to look like a penis. They were probably 60. Hence the knowing smiles my brother and I possess in this picture.
- I had interesting eats all weekend. My favorite restaurant? Madhatter in Dupont Circle. I had the Alice Burger, which was a veggie burger. I wasn’t as huge of a fan of how chunky all the veggies in it where, and it fell apart when I bit into it. But the sweet potato fries were awesome!
- My favorite restaurant is different than my favorite meal. The fav plate of food was breakfast on the last day when we went to Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe. It was a book store, cafe, and bar all in one! They pretty much give you an excuse to sit and never leave… love it.I had a waffle craving and this was killer. Funny that my favorite meal was so standard- but sometimes that’s just what you’re looking for…
- Because of the days and days of walking and walking and walking, I didn’t officially workout. I tried once to go to the fitness center to do weights. But turns out the only weights they had were also part of the first weight machine ever made. Whatev. They were the first thing I did when I got to the gym last night once I got back home. No worries!- This is my favorite picture. My mom is yet to embrace the new technology we like to call the “digital camera”. We often take two pics. One with the digital for fun. Then one for the “real” camera. - Needless to say, the fam had a great vacation! It was the first time my brother and I had ever been there- and we crammed in everything we could. My favorite part was probably the American History Museum. Or Ford Theater. Or Arlington…. I’m overwhelmed with choices!
-Now it’s back to normal. And unpacking. Ugh- unpacking is worst than packing. I’ll probably just live for a week out of my suitcase… before I have to pack it again for the Healthy Living Summit! Such a hard life… :p
Have a wonderful and lazy Sunday everyone!
