Sunday mornings

I am lying in bed while I blog. I should have gotten up early and gone to church with Steve, but that isn't happening, obviously. He's clearly a better Catholic then I am, since he got up with plenty of time to walk down to mass. He said he tried to wake me up too...he probably did, but I am far from a morning person and very grumpy when I first wake up. Lucky him!

Yesterday was a really nice day. I woke up late (shocker!) as I was up late Friday night reading Certain Girls. We'll talk more about that later. So, Steve came over and met me, then we walked down to Union Station where we had lunch at Uno's. Not terribly exciting, but good...predictable. You know. Then we walked over to the Mall...we walked first to the Capitol, then past the reflecting pool and over to Penn NW, where they were having a big Asian Festival. Several blocks were shut down to cars, and there were street dancers and music, food of all sorts, people talking about yoga and meditation, etc. There was also a booth for SOS Children where I was talked into sponsoring an Albanian village. Steve laughs at me, he says I am a salesperson's dream and can be talked into anything. This is somewhat true, but I'd been considering this for a while, so it wasn't exactly a spur-of-the-moment decision. I feel good about it.

Once we left the festival, we walked across the Mall and over to the Smithsonian Castle. I'd never been inside and have decided that I'd like to live there! Ha. After the Castle, we went to the National Archives, which I am slightly ashamed to admit that I'd never been to before, despite living in DC for nearly four years now! While we were there, a friend texted and asked if we wanted to meet them for dinner, so we went down to Phillips (seafood) on the Waterfront, and had dinner there. It was good, yet nothing to get excited about.

Tonight is the wine and jazz festival at Mount Vernon. I am excited. Two options for an outfit....an adorable sundress (white and purple stripes, with little bits of green) and a purple caridgan OR dark blue capris with a white top from Gap? Sorry, no link to the dress....it's Gap outlet, so not on their site anymore...

I did take some pics yesterday, and will take more tonight. If I can figure out how to post them, I will eventually!

Happy Sunday!

You sponsored an entire VILLAGE? That's pretty cool. And hey. you're allowed to skip mass every once in a while; call in a mental day.
