Whew. I feel like the past week and a half has been a marathon. Or what I'd imagine a marathon feels like.
I flew to D.C. and spent a week with my grad school cohort doing training and stuffs. Luckily I was able to squeeze in a few nights of hanging out in Georgetown with my good friend, Katie. We share a mutual love for margaritas and mexican food, so we went to Bandolero one night. So necessary after long days of training and getting my learn on.
Katie and I lived together in college and her golden retriever, Bailey, is actually Barkley's half sister. They have the same Dad. I insisted that Bailey put on her Halloween costume.
On Thursday afternoon I took the train from Union Station home to NC. They had already started decorating for Christmas.
The weekend was spent visiting my family in NC. My sweet Grandmama Louise went ahead and made Thanksgiving dinner early so I could partake. Of course, it was nothing short of delicious. She's kind of the best. She puts Paula Deen to shame.
I also received a special delivery from a sweet boy while I was home.
Of course, I also visited my mom's parents which is always entertaining. The older they get, the more hilarious they are. My grandma spoiled me with a piece of l'objet for my collection of grown-up stuff.
It was a short trip but made me crave the upcoming Christmas season. I can't wait to be home for a whole week. Good stuff.
