Reunited and It Feels So Good!

Well, this has been quite the busy (but fun!) week!   Last week we found out that Brooke was offered a job here in D.C. and, next thing we knew, she and her parents were in the car and headed for the East Coast!!!   The Franklin gang got here mid-week and we got to spend some time with them at Mr. Smith's piano bar over sangria and (much to Daddy Franklin's disappointment) some not very cold beer! :( It was nice to have both of our girls in one place at the same time and to know that it wasn't just for a few days on a vacation but that it was for real...we actually all LIVE in Washington, D.C....our dream has finally come true!!!

Momma Franklin, Brooke, and me at Mr. Smith's

Anyway, our happy hour at Mr. Smith's was just the beginning of a great weekend with friends.  Although Amy flew back to Tulsa for the weekend on Friday, we still had a full house for the weekend because our other friends Jen and Liz came to visit and spend the night to celebrate Jen's 24th birthday.  Jen (my girlfriend who is studying to become an optometrist in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida) was home for the weekend so with some help from Liz (my girlfriend from since I was a lil tike on swim team), we threw her a b-day bash at our place with some homemade red velvet cake (in honor of red hair of course :D ) and then hit the town in Georgetown for some drinks and fun!!!  Made it home (thank you Metro for being our faithful chauffeur) and got some Z's cause we are all getting old and need our beauty rest! :)

German pancakes and recovery the morning after!!!

After waking up late and getting ourselves together, Seth and I spent the rest of the weekend enjoying Brooke's company and resting up from the busyness.  Went to Chinatown on Saturday for dinner, some window shopping (emphasis on WINDOW, no real shopping thanks to my student budget haha!), and saw 'Inception' (good movie!).  Spent Sunday gettin 'er done and getting ourselves ready for another busy week here in our nation's capital.  Although it's only been a month since we have left Utah, it is hard to imagine all that has happened in our lives in such a brief span.  While we miss our family and friends back out west, we wouldn't trade this opportunity for anything.  Life is treating both of us so wonderfully and we feel blessed every day to wake up to each other and with all of the other wonderful people in our lives (near and far) who surround us with their love daily - thank you!!!

Well, I guess it's time for me to get my butt in gear and get going but hope you all start your weeks off great and that each day brings you nothing but good :)  Love you all - til the next time...

I love your morning after pic or "mourning after" more like it(although none of you look like you had a rough night at all--bunch of light-weights!) but it looks more like a LAN Party. Everyone has their laptop. Too cute! Love you!!! :D
