Training in DC

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

I spent the last week up in DC training for my new job! Well, technically I've been here a month so it's not exactly new. I think I would have had a nervous breakdown if I had been sent up there without having an event or anything under my belt - it was much easier to comprehend everything since I was able to put it in context. Anyway, the week was awesome and it was so great to meet more of the Share Our Strength team.

I figured out the best time to go to the White House - during rush hour! On Monday we didn't have to be at the office until 11am, so I went exploring in the morning. Everyone was power walking/biking/etc. to their job and I was just standing there snapping pictures. Don't mind me!

I was so happy to meet up with one of my favorite childhood friends from Texas - Lauren. We haven't seen each other in probably 10 years! She's a nurse at Walter Reed, so we were able to grab dinner one night.

One night I went walking down to Georgetown. Holy cow, it was so cute! I definitely want to go back to visit. (Disclaimer: I don't {think} I have a cupcake addiction, however I am addicted to how cute cupcake shops tend to be.) Here's Sprinkles Cupcakes.

And here's Georgetown Cupcake - they have a show on TLC. I actually tweeted this picture and said something along the lines of "I walked all the way to Georgetown Cupcake and they were closed!" They replied saying this was just their lab for the show, and that the bakery was one block over. HELLO, maybe you should put a sign on your door saying that. Because I just went to Sprinkles and got one of their cupcakes instead.

Seriously, Georgetown is so cute.

On Friday afternoon, I took the train up to Baltimore to spend the night with Frances and Tom - and Lindsay came down (over? up?) from Philly!

Frances and Tom just moved into this new condo about a year ago and it was my first time seeing the place. Look at these amazing views!

Adam surprised me with a new wedding ring! SIKE! This is Frances' insane set.

We went to a yummy dinner at Kali's Court. If you're ever in the area, I highly recommend it. After dinner, Lindsay and I went out in the Federal Hill area and were up to our normal shenanigans.

I had to wake up Saturday morning and fly back to Atlanta for another work event - what a week! Needless to say, I slept for a solid 12 hours on Saturday night.

I'll leave you with this little gem. Someone had this bib made for Mitchell for his birthday. Love it!
