Wow. Two posts in and I already seem to have taken a hiatus. Oops. For the past two weeks I have had a constant headache mixed with quite a few migraines. Staring at a computer screen was the last thing I wanted to do. Good thing my job doesn’t require it…oh wait. Hopefully I’ll get this whole migraine thing solved/fixed soon though. Enough about that…
It’s finally Spring in DC!! This past weekend was nothing but gorgeous and I enjoyed the outdoors as much as I could. On Saturday I helped with the Easter Egg Hunt out at Sully, where I’m interning. It was so much fun!! The weather couldn’t have been more perfect and we had about 150 kids there. We had a tractor pull, some nice Easter-like animals for the kids to pet (bunny, chicks, and two lambs!) The lambs were so cute! There were also crafts and refreshments and the kids seemed to all have a lot of fun. I got the task of spreading hay everywhere so we could hide the eggs (weird). It was great watching the kids look for the eggs. Some of them had awesome Easter baskets…and some of them had awesome Halloween buckets! I don’t judge.
Continuing the outside theme, a group of us had a nice outside brunch on Sunday in Arlington at Rhodeside Grill. Two words: Waffle. Station. The waffles were to die for and they had lots of fresh fruit to put on top too, so I felt a little bit healthy at least! Then Mike and I walked around Georgetown since it was so nice! I had passed the Stone House on M St. so many times but never went inside. I had no idea that they had it set up as a museum house! So even though we hadn’t planned it, we did sneak some history into our day! They had a few rooms set up as bedrooms, including rooms that I don’t think would’ve been bedrooms, but that’s their call. In the kitchen they had marks on the wall for how tall different people were back then. Thomas Jefferson was a tall dude! I liked the house though; I’m not sure I had been in a house that old with a basement kitchen (as opposed to a detached kitchen), so that was interesting to see. I just wish they had done something different with some of the rooms. I didn’t really need to see 3 bedrooms in the 5 rooms that were upstairs.
We went to IceBerry, also on M St. and man was it delicious! It’s a frozen yogurt shop and they have lots of toppings with lots of fresh fruit options, yay! I got honey dew yogurt (had to try it) with mango, kiwi, and blueberries. MMM! Mike got a strawberry-banana smoothie…boring. I definitely recommend that place though, it was delicious. We took our frozen treats down to the waterfront and just relaxed for a bit. The wind managed to blow melted yogurt all over me, but mostly Mike. For once it was not my fault! Totally the wind. We ended the day back in Falls Church at Hole in the Wall Books. It’s my goal to own a biography about every president, and lo and behold, I found an Andrew Johnson biography. Andrew Johnson! That goes right up there with Polk. I need to really make a list of who I still need, I tend to forget when I’m actually out in bookstores.
I’ll try to post a few Spring time pictures later and hopefully I’ll be a little better about updating this week! Gotta go make some dinner and get ready for LOST!
