Baked and Wired Cupcakes - Yum!Yesterday we began the day with a trip to her gym. When I go to the gym I am in an old basketball gym with small windows way up on the ceiling. It was a treat to be in a well lit gym with many many windows looking out on her streets and neighborhood. I tried the stairmaster - that is a decent workout and then I spent quite a bit of time on the elliptical. Lastly I went into the weight room where I did my stretches. I wasn't sure of the weigh troom etiquette but I seemed to do okay.We came "home" and showered before heading off for some shopping and eating in Georgetown. We were doing a little birthday shopping for Emily. She picked up a few things -non workout for a change - in between a great lunch of pizza and our cupcakes that I was thankful for yesterday!
Today we took a walk to the Jefferson Memorial and FDR Memorial. Em had not been to the FDR Memorial since she moved here and that needed to change. It is one of my favorite walks so I was delighted. It was sunny but cold. We laughed at the differences in our choice of attire. I was quite happy in capris and Em was all bundled up. She has lost her thicker Vermont blood!
DC vs. VT blood
Can't beat this walk!
Forgot to mention we saw Beau Obama doing his "thing"
Then we went to a fantastic brunch at Logan Tavern. One of Em's college friends met us there. I had the best eggs benedict ever! We meandered back to Ems and now we are doing nothing. Well I am. She is cleaning and organizing around the homestead! Soon it will be time to head to the airport and back to Vermont. I am always happy to be home but the thought of reality and being back at work tomorrow is a little more than I can bear right now so I'm going to stop thinking about it! Tomorrow at work will be here soon enough!
