Ok well apparently I spoke to soon about the sunny weather, because today I feel like I’m back in Seattle! Haha! The morning started out with a gorgeous sunrise, but a heavy cloud cover rolled in and it’s drizzling. The weekend forecast calls for sunshine and 60+ degree weather, though, so let’s hope that happens! But really, as a whole, the weather here is fantastic (even with the summer humidity) and I have no major complaints!
So, my friend Jen came to visit last weekend. It was a great trip! She took a red eye from Seattle, so Clint and I decided to stay the night prior in DC to avoid the 2am trek north at 5am. It worked out wonderfully as we were able to spend most of Friday evening with my cousin and his girlfriend. In the past 10 years I’ve seen this cousin twice, so it was a really fun time being able to hang out and hopefully we will be able to do this more often. The next morning Jen arrived and after some airport mixup/shuttle fiasco, she got to the hotel and we got our day started. First stop was breakfast at Old Ebbitt Grill near the, then onto as many “must see” houses/memorials/monuments/houses/museums as we could fit in: White House, Washington, , Lincoln, , MLK Jr, FDR, Jefferson, and the museum of . We got lucky with GORGEOUS clear, blue skies and not-so-cold temperatures.
The rest of the weekend consisted of Chick-fil-A, wine tasting, showing off my new stomping grounds, introducing old friends to new friends, and of course – watching the Seahawks win! Overall it was a fabulous weekend and I’m SO glad to have had a familiar face visit!
Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!
