I don't feel like writing today, so I'll just share some pictures from the weekend! My mom came down with my grandparents and I got to spend the whole weekend with them. I didn't take a lot of pictures (to much of a hassle), but I did take a few. I wish we had more time together, but really there is only a month and a half before winter break and the first semester ends! The real count down is on!
Really sad, but they are going to be doing construction on the beautiful capitol building for the next 2-3 years 🙁 My mom and I finally went inside though! Every other time we tried, we couldn't because we had water bottles, etc. This time we planned ahead, and got in! We even took the underground tunnel over to the Library of Congress where I got my official Readers card! Now I can go in and study in the reading rooms they have! I feel so special 😉
My mom being a photographer 😉
Lots of Sweetgreen salads!
Lots of Starbucks...of course! I got a Whole Foods coffee (organic French dark roast) on Sunday for the first time too. It was good, but I still think Starbucks beats it all!
My mom HAD to get her Georgetown cupcake before she left! Haha 😛
We also stopped by the White House. Well, it's the first time I've been over there since all the "break-ins." Now security is amped up and new gates are built. You can't go right up anymore 🙁 More sad things. But we still got a new White House selfie!
Besides all that, I also am STOCKED up on food! My mom brought down a ton of stuff (including plantains/potatoes, and my waffle maker!), I made my mom buy me groceries at Whole Foods AND Trader Joes! (I am no longer a TJs virgin!) It was so much fun to go in there! We also went out to dinner with my grandparents to the Daily Grill on Saturday night. I got the wonderful grilled Idaho Trout. Just as good as last time!
I cried when I saw my mom and when I got on the shuttle and left her 🙁 But I will be seeing her again soon! And I'll get to see my dad and brother! It is so hard not seeing your family for months at a time :/ I don't like it.
I hope you all had a marvelous weekend and I will see you here tomorrow for a yummy recipe!
So tell me:
+ How was your weekend? What did you do?
+ What is your favorite thing to get at Trader Joes (or Whole Foods!)?
