Carly Comes to Town

Hi there!  Well, another busy week and times just keeps flying!  And this week was no fact it flew by quicker than we would have hoped...because our friend Carly came to visit and is already gone :(  

Carly, a mutual friend of ours from Utah, flew in on Wednesday night for a pharmacy conference...but lucky for us she stayed at Hotel Longhurst-Roman!  On Thursday, Seth worked from home (I had to go in to the office) and got to have lunch downtown with Carly...and they sent me pictures to make me extra jealous! :)  It was really nice to see a familiar face from Utah, and we got extra excited for our trip out west in three weeks!!!  

As you will see by the pictures below, we had a fun weekend!  On Thursday, we took Carly to Ping Pong for a wonderful outdoor happy hour before calling it an early night (since we all had to get up in the morning).  Friday night we headed to Old Town Alexandria to meet Mom and Dad for dinner at our go to, Il Porto.  It's always fun to visit, especially when the weather is nice and you can walk by the pier.  On Saturday, we went to my friend Sunitha's brunch before cleaning up for a little get together at the casa.  Veronica and Tensie came over to meet Carly and head out for a night on the town...including A LOT of dancing - yay!  This morning we got up and took Carly to the aiprort and have enjoyed a day of playing catch up and gettin 'er done :)

Summer Time in the City

Hello again!  It seems as if I've been really struggling to get these updates done every weekend, but here goes nothing!

Between work and activities, it's been buuu-sayyy!  But busy doesn't mean there isn't room for a little fun in between (maybe no sleep, but certainly time for fun!)  In fact, sometimes a little bit of work gets mixed with a little bit of two weekends ago when Dad, Seth, and I packed into the car and drove to Connecticut for my niece, Marialyse's, graduation.  It was a fun weekend getting to see all of the family and I'm glad we were able to make it!  Congratulations, Marialyse!

Speaking of fun, last week was great because we had a mid-week holiday to celebrate the 4th of July. We spent the day BBQ'ing and soaking up some sun at Veronica and Audrey's.  To really show our patriotic spirit we ran up to the local market and bought some fireworks for our big finale :)

As a matter of fact, given that the 4th of July is now almost a week behind us, it's hard to believe how quickly the summer is will be done before we know it!  And work will be done even sooner - and that makes me so sad, because I really am loving it so much!!!  But since time is passing by quickly, we are continuing to make the most of it by filling our weekends with a good brunch, pool time, and fun nights with friends :)

Well, that's about all I have time for tonight...RuPaul's Drag U is wrapping up and I have to get some beauty rest...because as you will see below, I'm up with the sun every day :)
