|I must be telling a great joke here, everyone looks like they are laughing so hard! (....)|
On Thursday morning I hopped on the Amtrak train to Union Station to sign the dotted and meet my colleagues. Friday morning I began looking at apartments! That, too, was not a path traveled solo. Cassie had a friend that used Apartment Detectives to find a place in DC that she loved and so we signed up, too. So far it has been a fabulous experience. Nancy Starrs, the real estate on our 'case', has been prompt and helpful and the places I saw on Friday and Saturday were gorgeous and reasonably within our budget. You can even 'like' them on facebook! I'll keep you posted once we have signed that dotted line, too.
Whitney, my college roommate and friend since the 6th grade (!), opened up her home to me, once again, for which I am also very thankful. We met Ann, another college girlfriend, for dinner at Cava Mezze for dinner (delicious tapas-style place) and then got frozen yogurt at Pinkberry (you should check out their website just to listen to the song they play - it's pretty awesome).
|No, I did not ride my bike right into the church. But that would have been awesome.|
Sunday meant church - but not before giving a presentation on Mali to the middle schoolers. I couldn't tell if they were really into it (I think that may just be because they're in middle school...) but good job to all their 3rd grade teachers because they remembered their facts about ancient Mali!
Last, but certainly not least, the rumors are true. We have a notary in the family. Mom joined the National Notary Association last week, and the nearly 5 million notaries in the United States, and is ready to handle all your notary needs. Come one, come all - she may even cut you a deal if you mention this blog post :)
|She already has a waiting list of people who want her signature! (or you could be first.. :)|
