Hello, my friends! I hope you all have been having a great Spring. I’m still anxiously awaiting the warm weather here. I have been so totally busy this year and the blog has been taking a hit. Taking 18 credits, finding a summer nanny job, finding a Fall internship, a subleaser, raising chickens, thrifting, cooking, cleaning and everything is exhausting! I wanted to share some pictures from the past week to give everyone a look at what has been going on. You’ll see the newest pictures of the chickadees. Above (from left to right) is Biscuit, Bonnie, Luna (on my right arm), Ginger on my knee, and jealous Jake the golden retriever. I feel like I live on a farm! As long as the coop is ready, the babies will be headed outside this weekend – YAY! They have totally tore up the bathroom. There’s poop caked everywhere, holes in the walls, the toilet is scratched, and there are feathers and feed dust floating everywhere. Plus… it STINKS. If you ever need pet sitting, chat it up with my mom. She is by far the greatest. She took care of 4 stinky chicks for the past 7 weeks while I’ve been at school. Is that love or what?
Ginger! Look had big they are getting!
Little Luna – still the little runt!
On Sunday, Nerdboy and I took a date out to DC to do the tourist thing since we’ve been living a metro ride away. This is the second time this year we’ve been caught in the rain in DC. Let me add that I TOLD HIM to bring an umbrella this time. 10% chance of rain isn’t anything to mess with! Luckily we didn’t get very wet and were able to stay inside when it was raining hard.
We enjoyed lunch outside before the rain at Tortilla Cafe. Mike saw their episode on the Food Network and wanted to give it a try! We also walked around the Eastern Market Flea Market. I was so glad I wore jeans instead of a dress because it was chilly all day.
We walked around the Conservatory at the U.S. Botanic Garden for a bit after lunch. I love flowers, especially orchids so I thought the place was pretty neat. Not to mention, it was nice and warm and humid in there I needed to warm up since it was chilly and wet outside. Don’t you wish you could grow orchids in your house like this?
And check out my new bling! A 45 carat diamond necklace, gorgeous, right? Too bad it was locked up in a case and a security guard was standing there. This gorgeous Hope Diamond can be found at the Smithsonian. Make sure you take a look at all the other gorgeous gems in the exhibit. There’s really something there for everyone: gems, dinosaurs, early humans, animals, bugs, sea life, and more! We also stopped by the Air and Space museum. So much great stuff to do in DC! The metro ride was very inexpensive as well – just about $5 round trip. Despite the weather, it was a wonderful day
That’s all for now! Have a good week!
