Back Home!

Hello friends! We are back from our ‘mini- vaca’ and I have my usual post vacation blues.

I get to sad when it is time to come home!

We ventured up to our Nation’s Capital (said with my best Forest Gump voice, which is bad).

Both Luke and I had been to DC once before, but never together. So when his parents had meetings to go to and invited us to go with them, we jumped on the opportunity.

We were there for 4 days and we crammed A LOT into those days.

My feet and back will never be the same.

When I asked myself should I bring walking shoes? My answer should have been YES YES YES.

Believe me black flats and flip flops DO NOT work when walking 15 miles a day.

I will put together a post with pictures of our trip tonight, because aren’t posts just so much better with pics?!?!

On our trip I experienced a couple of firsts…..
· My first time to meet an out of state bloggy friend
· My first time to see a secret service person
· My first time to get pick-pocketed
· My first time to shop at H&M
· My first time to ride a subway

It was such a great time! (minus the awful pick pocketing)

I am thankful for opportunities to be able to go on great trips!

Recap coming soon, I know you are on the edge of your seat!

Hope you all had a great week. I haven’t been commenting but I have kept up with everyone.

A special thanks goes out to Google Reader and my iPhone. Without these two I would be lost.

Isn't DC amazing?!? We just went on a trip there in the fall. We had the best time. You are not kidding about walking so much. I wore a pedometer because work was having a "step it up" competition. We walked over 17 miles on both days we were there. It was crazy.

And H&M??? AMAZING!! I love it :)

Glad yall had fun :)

Welcome back home! I LOVE Washington, DC so I can certainly understand the post-vacation blues after going there.
