played my best game of BBHP EVER. Ever ever ever. It was epic. I became a something special with my 5 PERFECT SITES. yes that is right. I am from Idaho and I like to shoot digital buck. A-mazing.
Also walking home I over hear this:
"no way man. N-O-W way"
(in my head...wait isn't that "now way"?)
"No dude, I am going to get my jammies (I kid you not blog readers he said jammies) on. so N-O-W way"
( in my head again. OMG...figure out no...is N-O)
"Seriously dude, I just want some jammies and my tv... N-O-W way am I going there for you. N-O-W. I said N-O-W"
(head: no you said now...so really he does't understand)
ahhh yes. Friday night. Fab-u-lous.

And I have to say I am really digging this cube of a cake. Not sure how this would work for cutting and serving, but I love the contemporary design of this:
I also bought and have recived my wonderbar...so far...so wonderful. I will write a full review once we have had some time to get to know each other.
Vera Wang Dress as seen on Bravobride
I am a big fan of large sashes and big full skirts that are odd layers of fabric. What I really like is the back of this dress has all those layers and they look unfinished but completely polished at the same time. Stunning.

Monday I had to work but met up with my parents in the evening for dinner at Potenza which was absolutely delish.
Tuesday the parents did some marathon sight seeing while I was at work and then we met up at the Brickskeller where I had the most amazing beer that I have ever put in contact with my lips. More of a desert but this beer was epic!
After air and space we headed to Arlington National Cemetery.
We then trucked up to the National Cathedral which I had not seen since my adventures to DC way back in High School, so it was neat to see it again. I forgot what a stunning cathedral it is.
Sadly we had to say goodbye and the parents headed back to be parents to the poodle who I am sure was antsy without them! But we had a great trip and I am so glad they made it out here while I am living in DC!

Digging the white. Just need to have some commitment to press the "purchase" button.

Could someone tell me what my problem is!??! (If any of you remember the epic baby flu of 2008 that I had- I oddly feel a bit like I did the morning that the terrible on-set of that hit me)
I know that this is emotionally manifested and I am in no way going to have baby flu relapse 2 years later, but I just feel icky this morning.
Some prayers/crossed fingers/good energy sent my way today would be greatly appreciated.
In other news, Carly and I have been having a great time together and I am sad to see her go today. It is strange when the old world and the new worlds of my life come together and they feel like such separate things but then in front of my own eyes I see them mix and mingle- and its just a little-- unexpected. But I will post some news later on our fun adventures- bus tours-eating-drinking-and anything else I missed.

Own a dance studio.
This is where I danced back in Idaho. Dance Arts had the most amazing environment and my dance teacher there was one of the most inspiring people I have ever met. I will be totally honest, when I started ballet (and I started late compared to most people) I sucked. Bad. But I can not even begin to tell you about the time Lary invested in me. By the time I headed off to college I had gained so much technique and skill and I ended up becoming a dance minor in college. Unfortunately I did not really buy into the dance program in college so it wasn't the experience I was hoping for, but some of my teachers there were equally as inspiring and I learned some great things from them as well.
I feel a need to really be expressing myself through dance again. I think for awhile I really was just emotionally disconnected from things which dancing is all about emotion (and technique) but if you aren't ready, or emotionally available to be passionate about it, it will be a constant struggle. Because let's face it- there is nothing natural about pointe shoes or the form of ballet.
Now I feel like I am in a place where I am in tune with my passion and emotion for dance and I am hungry to brush off the shoes and really make it apart of my life again. Sadly I have been less than impressed with the DC dancing scene as far as finding a studio that is close by, affordable, and comfortable. Hopefully I can find one and get back into it.
Or my roommate is going to have to deal with me using our dining room chairs to do barre exercises in the evenings!

Let that soak in for a minute.
You read right.
This place is in Erin's hood so Brooke and I ventured up there, had some "classy" girls time sipping on some wine before we hoofed over to the bar. Upon arrival we promptly order our beers (if the strawberry one is on tap--get it! Don't even think twice!) and two--t-w-o, orders of fried pickles. Trust me for three people this is barely enough. Once you put on of those fried, battered, pickle spears in your mouth you will wish you would just have them coming with your beers!
We also devoured some amazing grilled cheese sandwiches where you might say "oh bar food" au contrare!
Brooke enlightened us to this fact: "When asked about the debate about buttering the bread or the grill when making grilled cheese sandwiches the chef of the quarry says "I butter both"'. Now that is what I am talking about. Screw the debate over what technique is better, the more butter the better (thank you Julia Childs)
Another great part of this adventure is my pictures were taken on a disposable camera! I can not tell you how much fun it was to run around with a wind and click camera (which we occasionally forgot to use the flash). Pretty sure I am going to start taking one out with me more often. Anyways, this also means I have yet to scan them into my computer. So you will have to wait in suspense to see the photos from this adventure. Probably better...once you set eyes on those pickles it is just downhill from there!
Photos to come!
