Summer Lovin, Had Me a Blast!

Hey's that time of the week again, so I'm sitting down to write my Blog and get ready for another week!  Things have been so busy (partly because work is busy, and partly because we're having too much fun), but I wanted to take a second to catch y'all up to speed...

Last week was Veronica's birthday, so we turned the weekend into a celebration, starting with a Happy Hour in V's honor!  Also, to celebrate in style, Seth, Veronica, Audrey, Tensie, and I headed to National Harbor for the Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival (delicious by the way!)  After the festival (and a little nap), we went to Rosa Mexicano for some more food and drinks...and even got to hear the Pops Orchestra playing from our table on the patio!

 In other news...Seth and I have a big announcement: we have a new addition! Her name is Maggie J., another Basenji mix.  It kind of happened quickly - I got home one night and Seth had decided he wanted to get another dog...and he had already picked her out!  So, before we knew it, we were off to pick up Maggie to bring her home....and she has fit in so well, especially with her sister :)  We can't wait for you all to meet come visit soon!

 As if our social schedule wasn't keeping us busy enough...there is a little thing called work :)  I can't believe I'm now officially on the downhill side of the summer...time sure flies!

Well, that's about all she wrote for now!  Summer has been great so far, but it's also tiring me it's time for bed - good night, and have a great week!

Another Day, Another Dollar

Hello there!  I'm sorry this has been a bit delayed, but between work and everything, life has been busy busy busy!!!  Being busy is actually a good thing though, because time really does fly by - it's hard to believe we are almost done with our 4th week at the firm!

Speaking of work, I have been really luck to have had a lot of really interesting assignments under the supervision of some amazing attorneys.  Our firm is full of great people, and the Recruiting Department makes sure we have a good time on top of all the hard work!  In fact, we usually have an activity at least once a week to take a break and get to know each other.  So far, we've had a welcome cocktail party to meet the other attorneys, played trivia as part of a game night, gone on a crab-boat cruise, watched a National's game from box seats, and celebrated the firm's 50th Anniversary with a party at the Washington Golf and Country Club...and lots more fun (and of course, hard work in between!) to come!

Aside from work, we are keeping busy with fun-filled weekends!  Two weekends ago we went to a wine festival in Virginia and camped overnight to enjoy the beautiful weather.  And this past weekend was the Capital Pride Festival...and boy did we have a good time!  We had people over before heading down to the parade...and then came back to our place...before heading out to dance the night away!  The next day?  Recovery by the pool with Seth and Veronica :)

Well, that's about all she wrote for tonight...but more to come soon!  Much love until then :)
