Over The Weekend Happenings and Looking Forward to DC

sweater- Forever 21,   jeans- Goodwill,   boots- gifted,   earrings- gifted,   headband- Target

The weekend is over and it was a good one.  On Friday night my brother, Isaac, had his last home game.  It was a game that determined if they won in their league or not, and they did... win in their league, that is.  It was fun.  Of course, the night that they took a team picture and cut the net, was the night that I forgot to take my camera.  I'm still a little mad at myself for that... oh, well.  My sister, Rebekah, came down for the weekend from Michigan and was able to come to the game.  Then on Saturday, my sister-in-law had one of her three baby showers.  We went and played games, ate food, and watched Jordan open her the baby's gifts.  Out of the bags came little hats with antlers, little blue onsies that were so small you didn't see how a baby could fit in them, and blankets so soft that you wanted to cuddle up with them.  Sunday was a quiet day and was spent everyone together before Rebekah had to leave later in the day.  Oh, and at 9 o'clock precisely, I ran up to my room to watch Downton Abbey, of course!

Now that the weekend is over, it is time to get into strict school mode for the next couple days.  I need to get a lot done because of the days that I'm going to miss because of my trip.  Yes, I leave this Thursday for DC!  I am super excited.  I have never been to DC... unless you count looking at it through an airport window.  It's going to be a busy trip jam packed with sightseeing.  It is also nice to be having my brother and sister-in-law going along.  Let's just hope Jordan doesn't go into labour in the White House...  That has been my little joke, but I don't think Jordan thinks it's very funny though...  Hopefully when I get back I'll have a lot of pictures to show and stories to tell. :)  Well, I need to do school.... yay... not...

  8. Oh have lots of fun in DC! I've always always wanted to go and see all the great patriotic sights. ;-)

  9. I love everything about that outfit! The sweater is super cute, and I love the jeans with the boots :)
    You're going to D.C.?!?!?!? I've been there 4 times, and I love that place so much :) You'll have an amazing time! If you ever need a good place to eat lunch that's not too expensive, you can go to the cafeterias in the tunnel system under the Capitol. The bigger one (I think it's under the Longworth building) is better :) And the White House is so much fun - just take your time, don't rush through it, be sure to ask the secret service people in the room questions - they'll talk to you, and they have some cool stuff to say, and if there are huge school groups, you can just stay behind and let them pass :)
    Can't wait to hear how it goes!

  10. I seriously want to steal your sweater....don't be surprised if you find it missing when you return from D.C (Which by the way, Have an excellent time! DC is the BEST!) I can't count how many cities I've been too via the airport and never actually went out in them, sometime I would actually like to really GO somewhere!

  11. I hope you have a fun time in DC! I went a few years ago and really loved it!
