One thing that I didn't expect I would be doing on April 26th - laying by the pool.

Thank You Mother Nature

I thought it would be nice to get out of the house away from all distractions (studying, chores, day-to-day crap) and spend the day in DC enjoying the cherry blossoms and spending time with each other. I think that in most cases when you have no plans and just go with the flow its invigorating. Unfortunately that wasn't the case for us. We ended up in some crazy traffic and were ready to rip each others heads off after we had been in the car for a few hours. Slow moving cars bring out the worst in people....let me paint a picture of how slow: there was a grandpa taking a stroll on the side of the road, I think he may have required a walker but left it at home, that was keeping up with our pace for miles...and miles...and miles.

And when we FINALLY got into the city there was not an inch to spare. I guess we weren't the only ones that wanted to get out of the house. We drove around looking for a parking space and ended up getting lost and suddenly we were on the freeway again. I wasn't ready to give up and thankfully we somehow ended up on the backside of The Capitol and I convinced Tanner (who was so ready to drive home) to stop when I spotted a place to park.

We parked and when we stepped out of the car it was an instant transformation for both of us. We completely forgot that we were upset. Its crazy how weather can affect your mood. But I'm glad it does -- because thanks to the beautiful weather, the day could not have been more perfect. We spent the rest of the afternoon just walking around the Capitol, talking, taking photos, people watching...oh and we went to this grill called the Capitol Lounge that had the BEST, greasy food that we've had in along time. What an amazing - and in the end - relaxing day!

A New Side of Brambleton

Tonight we saw a side of Brambleton that we never knew existed -- live reggae music and old rhythmless rich people dancing. Needless to say, our night was complete.

A Night at the Circus

I had been trying to win Britney Spears tickets from local radio stations without much luck and actually began having a strong hatred for the people that got through and won. So, when Christy asked me if I wanted to go three days before the concert I nearly crapped a brick. Tuesday the 24th I actually got off work early and we made the trip to DC and had an awesome time with Chris and Christy (who we haven't hung out with forever!)
Britney is freaking hot and such a great performer. Hands down one of the best concerts I've ever been to. It was fun hearing all her new songs and she took Christy and I back with some of her classics too. Britney kept all of us (except Chris) entertained all night!
