Washington, D.C., Part One!

My 2011 New Year's resolution: to blog atleast once a month {hey, it's a start!}

This blog post brought to you in part by Starbucks free Wi-fi. {I am working from my coffee spot on 7th Street because my house currently smells of paint and looks like a train wreck {more on our kitchen remodel later!}

Here is the first set of photos from our trip to Washington, DC. Stephen & I took a quick weekend trip {Thursday-Sunday night} at the beginning of this month. What a fun time! We stayed at the Donovan House Hotel- I must say- one of my fav's! Here's proof:

I thought I'd seen it all...until this shower!!! You walk in and go around in a circle like a shell and the water comes out of the ceiling in the very middle!!! I could so deal with having one of those!!!

Photobucket
Not only that...but you could see the other side of the shower from the room....it was too neat!! Here's what it looked like lit up.

Photobucket
Loved the clean, luxurious simplicity of the bed!

Photobucket
Trying to memorize the map of DC =)

After dinner we took a stroll down the block and realized we were too tired and ran back to the hotel and chilled for the night. We also wanted to get good and rested for a long day of walking!!

Photobucket
Yogen Fruz. Had to take a photo because it was a yogurt shop and it was German!!!

Photobucket
Beautiful architecture all over the place

Outside of our hotel.


Next: Day 2- The US Capitol and sightseeing!!

This month is special

I so amazed at how fast this year went by! I meant to post on the first of this month but I didn't want to until I had time to sit down and take my time. It is so hard to believe that in 16 days we will celebrate our first anniversary! Alot of people say, when referring to how long they have been married, that 2 years felt like 20. Well.....I have a hard time relating to that because 12 months feels like 12 weeks to me.  I look at our wedding photos and I am in 100% disbelief that it was a year ago! Speaking of wedding photos, I never really got to finish posting them. When there's nearly 700 photos it takes alot of time that I simply did not have the past few months! So for our "anniversary month" (why just celebrate it on one day only? I'm even putting out anniversary decorations! Ha! Call me crazy :), I am going to finish recapping our wedding. Then in March move on to other things that I have up my sleeve.


I have this crazy feeling this is going to be nothing short of a wonderful, BIG, and busy year! I am anxious and giddy to see where we go, what we do, what we learn this year. =)

And just because I like to add a picture to every post...this is me with my *classy* friend Hannah and her sister {childhood friends}....

And of course since this photo is so awesome ;-) Check out Sam.


Here's to ummm.....making better habits of actually posting. *clink*  =)
