how did this happen?

I'd ask you how your weekend was, but it is already Wednesday afternoon...of a four day work week...

YEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!

Oh right, I'm happy to have an extra day off!

I actually had a post Sunday afternoon, but when I hit "post" it disapeared into cyberspace. Gahhhh, hate that. I hit refresh and the back button, but it really was gone. Sigh.

Quick recap of weekend, since it was somewhat interesting. I went out to Tysons for a bit of shopping. We stopped at Penzeys Spices in Falls Church and I bought a few things there. The main excitement at Tysons was the Grand Opening of the newest branch of Cake Love where I met Warren Brown, the owner, and had him sign my copy of his new cookbook! Can't wait to try that! Oh, and I also purchased a new purfume- Found from Crabtree & Evelyn. I rarely shop there, but it was 75% off...making it a whopping $11.25 plus tax. What's not to love about that?

Steve's aunt and uncle are in town this week, so we are having dinner with them tomorrow night. I think we are going to Oceanaire...yum! Have you been there?

Now I am frantically trying to finish up schoolwork for one class. It ended last week, but I am a bit behind, and a few assignments will be late. Ooops. At least both classes are O-V-E-R!

I am going HOME next week! YESSSSSS! Friday is my godson's first birthday (!!!) and then I have a wedding next weekend, so it makes far more sense to stay home, rather then fly back and forth two weekends in a row. I'm excited. I haven't been home since February, booo.

My sister has a boyfriend!

You know what Friday is? Aside from 4th of July? It's Independence Day- MY Independence Day- it's my four year anniversary of living here in DC! Sure, I'd lived away from home before; in college, in Luxembourg, Poland and Canada, but those times? I knew they were temporary. This time? DC seems pretty permanent. DC was my first time really living on my own. I lived in a house with four others for nearly a year before moving into my very own apartment- the same one I still live in, three years later. Awwww...

What are your plans for the 4th?

I can't wait for a day off, I'm deperate! My parents and in-laws are coming over for the holiday and we're grilling outside, going to a concert, and watching fire works. The usual...

I've never been to Oceanaire, but I've heard great things about it!

Tomorrow I will enjoy my day off with some Wii playing followed by a home-cooked meal and fireworks.

I <3 the way Crabtree & Evelyn smells.

Congrats on your 4-year anniversary! It's awesome that although it can be such a transient city, it feels like home to you.
