The Weekend is HERE!!

Sorry in advance: Since I haven't blogged all week this is going to be a LONGG picture heavy post...hope you enjoy haha

WAHOOO! 4th of July weekend is HERE!! So I don't know about anyone else but this week seriously could NOT have gone slower. Sorry about not posting since Monday but between babysitting for 3 hours in the morning, going to my internship for 5 hours in the afternoon, and shredding at night I am sooo tired! This morning started off a little rough with waking up 15 minutes before I had to be at the girl's house and looking sick nasty all day but....babysitting is done, my internship is done (for the week at least haha) and I've shredded for the day so THE WEEKEND IS HERE! As I'm sure you can tell by the picture above I am so excited for the 4th and hopefully some nice weather! I'm off to Vermont for the weekend so this will be my last post until then but I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! I want to share pics from my FANTASTIC weekend to DC...btw def planning on moving there so if anyone know of any jobs opening next year for a Com major let me know haha ;)...but before I do so I want to say a couple Thank Yous! 

So a couple days ago Denise over at Seersucker Scrapper (who has the cutest blog so go check it out now!) awarded me the Lovely Blog Award which I feel so honored to get! 

The Rules:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his/her link.

2. Pass the award to 5 other bloggers that you have newly discovered

I absolutely love LOVE discovering new blogs so here they are! (obvi in no particular order)

Be As You Are (PJ literally JUST started her blog and its great so def go check it out!)

Alright! So even though this happened SUCH a long time ago I would LOVE to thank my koozie swap partner Ashley (she doesn't have a blog) for the adorable koozie she sent me! I can't wait to use it (if it ever gets halfway decent out haha) 

Next I want to say thank you Thank You THANK YOU to my absolutely AMAZING summer swap partner Bonnie over at Meanderings of Life for her fantastic package she sent me! I am one lucky lady and am getting spoiled! 

Everything still tucked away in the box

All my great goodies! I got a SUPER cute beach bag that I can't wait to use, the book 10 Little Blue Envelopes that looks great and I'm going to read after I finish book 7 of Sookie Stackhouse, yummy body lotion, a great water bottle, and a gorgeous wooden box!

And look at all of these goodies that were in the box! I can't wait to use all of them and are SERIOUSLY spoiled! 

Ok so last but definitely not least, as I've said before my trip to DC was the best time ever and I've totally fallen in love! Thank you to all for your great suggestions...we didn't get The Matchbox but my friends agree with you and said it was fantastic so I def want to head there on my next visit (or if I end up moving there haha) 

Friday S and I woke up and headed over to the Hill for our friend C (who's interning for his state rep) to give us a great tour of the Capital! It was so amazing and even though I went there in 8th grade I loved hearing about all of the history, and seeing a few things that I didn't before (sitting in on the House...SO COOL) which made it a great tour! After the tour S and I hit the white house and a bunch of monuments and then went to meet friends for happy hour and dinner at Tony's and Nick's (I think that's it) that was right on the harbor in Georgetown. It was SO YUMMY and pretty and we all had the best time! That night we all headed over to Adams Morgan to Brass Monkey which was soooooo much fun! It was a great bar, and was really cool because it had a ton of different levels (including a rooftop bar) that we just kept discovering!

Saturday, after a VERY late night we all woke up late, had brunch, and went to the Holocaust Museum. Really no words can describe it except...WOW. I visited there in 8th grade but really didn't get as much out of it as I did this time and it was incredibly sad and very moving. A group of us then headed over to the Jefferson memorial after and then to Clyde's in Georgetown which was sooo delish! After dinner we went to Georgetown Cupcake which were the best cupcakes I've ever had (and now I'm wondering if they ship haha) went back to their apartment and then went to Brass Monkey again for another great (and late!) night. 

Sunday we were going to go to Georgetown to shop but it was raining so we all went to the mall at Pentagon City where we did some shopping, and then I left for my funnn (haha) plane ride home! Overall a GREAT weekend! Ok so here are pictures but for your sake (sorry this is LONG!) no captions this time as I'm sure you know the people and places.

Have a great 4th of July weekend!

    I also wanted to thank you for becoming a follower of my blog. So, Thanks!

  4. Aw, thanks for the award!

    That is the greatest box of stuff! I really should be in on these swap things. I just started listening to the 7th Sookie book on CD. I am in a hurry to get through the series because it's addicting and I want to know what happens, but I'll be really bummed when I've read them all and I have nothing else to look forward to!

    Looks like you had fun in DC. I was there in May and did the regular touristy stuff but really wish I had more time to explore. I hope to head back sometime soon!

  5. Looks like a great DC trip :)

  6. What a fun time in DC! Happy 4th :) xoxo

  8. I'm so jealous that you got to spend some time in D.C. I have always wanted to go there and have got to get my butt down there!

    I hope that you had a wonderful 4th of July!

  9. Gorgeous DC pics! I moved away a few years ago and still miss it daily!
