Weekend Snapshots November 15-17, 2013

Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend.


I had a jam packed weekend full of fun events! The action began on Thursday. Chris and I went to see Elton John perform at the Verizon Center. It was incredible!!! He played for two and a half hours straight and I enjoyed every minute!! We were in the cheap seats, but they weren’t too bad and I was so happy we had the opportunity to see him perform.

On Friday, I had a make up class and then had to deal with internet issues at home. Sorry I wasn’t able to get a post up for you all.

We shared a cheese plate to begin. The brie was my favorite!

20131117-222109.jpgMy Dad, Chris, and I split six oysters. The oysters were incredible!!! They may have been the best I’ve had, which is saying a lot because Sea Catch has really good oysters too! I think these were better!!

After dinner, we walked over to the W Hotel so my parents could check out the P.O.V. Lounge. The P.O.V. Lounge is a rooftop bar that has incredible views of DC and overlooks the White House.

We had a great time with my parents are were sad for the night to end.

Early on Saturday, Chris and I headed to Richmond for one of my college roommate’s engagement party!

Chris’ brother-in-law ran the Richmond marathon so we got to visit with his sister, brother-in-law, and niece as well!

After lunch, we headed down to the marathon finishing zone. We were all very proud of Jamon for finishing the marathon!! Quite a feat!

A little later in the evening we headed to the engagement party.

On Sunday, Chris and I had to get out of Richmond to make it home for a Comcast appointment. The good news is that we have the internet again! Bad news is they have to come back again this Friday! Boo!

20131117-222036.jpgI spent Sunday doing school work and preparing for the week ahead.

We bought a frozen pizza from Safeway for a quick and easy dinner. After dinner we caught this week’s Walking Dead. What did you all think of the Governor’s return?? Very interesting!!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
