What a Washington Weekend

Did you have a good weekend? I sure did. It started off on the right foot with a fun, little date with Shannon. Go visit her now and say “hi” because we are quickly becoming close friends and you’ll most likely be seeing her around more often on the blog. 

We met at Whole Foods Market which, in case you've never been, has about fifteen different salad bars: a sushi bar, a bar bar, a wine bar, even a gelato “bar.” Something for everyone I’d say. So, obviously, we happily camped out there for the night where we chatted about anything and everything under the sun. Literally. So far, we’ve hung out twice and I don’t think there has been a silent moment yet!

So, get this. Shannon is good friends [in real life] with Kate from Every Mile a Memory. While at Whole Foods with Shannon, I check my email on my phone real quick and see an email that had just come in from Kate telling me she had just read my latest blog post and really thinks I should hang out with her friend Shannon since we have so much in common! We totally have to Photoshop Kate into this picture below :) Meant to be!

Then, Saturday started off with acting class which I rocked. Who knew I'd be good at playing an NYPD attorney? Next week I get to play a Jersey girl. I'll see if I can get a picture :)

Saturday afternoon I met up with someone quite special to me.

All I'll say for now is that I'm grateful for God's plan. That somehow, despite changing high schools, going to different colleges, and both moving to different states, He brings us back together. And the best part of it all? It felt like nothing changed although everything going on around us did.

And let me just say how much of a compliment it was to hear the countless times he told me, "You're definitely your mother's daughter." :)

That night, it was off to the WASHINGTON NATIONALS vs Atlanta Braves game!

My brother. Me. My brother's fiancee!

Bryce Harper is a big deal here. He's a big deal in the sports world. Period.
He was injured during the afternoon game on Saturday so we didn't think we'd be seeing much of him but toward the end of the game, the crowd went WILD to unexpectedly see him put in to bat!

We came back from 2-0 to win the game 5-2!
Ryan Zimmerman is my hero along with Michael Morse. [If you go to a game, pay attention to Morse when he goes up to bat! He has the funniest pre-bat ritual ever, known as the Samurai Cobra Snake.] The game was amazing! Plus, Nationals Park had the greatest wave going that I have EVER seen! And, to top it all off, The Wallflowers performed after the game. #90sperfection
