It's been awhile.....

Since I've had a break...

So I realize that I haven't been updating much lately... well.... updating AT ALL... but to be honest... I sort of feel like no one reads this anyways so why should I waste my time?!?! But, I read Ashley's blog tonight and sort of got up enough motivation to update... so here I am.

My summer is moving right along... I work a lot still, but I've had a couple little vacations and some fun here and there.

I'll give you some picture updates.....
I guess I already wrote about the Pirates game matt and I went to... so moving along...

A couple weekends ago, My roommate,Emily, and I went to Washington D.C. to have some fun and visit her sister.
We had a lot of fun, we ate out the first night we got there at an Irish Pub, then walked around for awhile and then headed back to the ladies house her sister was house sitting for. It was a really big row house in a nice part of D.C. We stayed with her there that night... we woke up the next day and headed out for a day of SHOPPING!!! :-) We got on the Metro(pictured above) and headed for Pentagon City. We went to the big mall there... we of course went into all the really expensive stores and felt like poor little college students, but my eyes lit up when I saw the BIGGEST FOREVER 21 I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!!! I could have (I so wanted to..) go crazy.. but I only bought one thing. After our shopping at the mall and eating at the cute little pita place, we headed to Crystal City, which sucked and we were out of there pretty quickly. We then headed to Chinatown to the HUGE Urban Outfitters to buy stuff for our dorm room. Luckily for us, they were having a sale on a lot of the apartment furniture and stuff.. so we got rugs for our room... but not just ANY rugs.. the rug I have been wanting and admiring online for months now...
We got 2 of them to lay side by side... isn't it so pretty. We each bought one, we thought they were $28.00 each because that's what the tag said.. but when we got to the register they were each $9.99!!!!!!!!! It made our day!!!! I also got a lampshade that matches my bedspread. I love Urban Outfitters so much! :-)
Anyways....
the next day we went to the Jewish day festival on the National Mall. We saw.. Regina Spektor LIVE!!!! She was AMAZING!!!!!!




We also met and got an autograph of.... If you don't recognize this guy.... let me refresh your memories...

Yes folks... it is Mandy Patinkin.. a.k.a Inigo Montoya from the famous movie, The Princess Bride!!!!! We met him and got his picture and autograph!!! :-) He even did his famous line from the movie!


That was an amazing day. We even met
OSCAR THE GROUCH!!! LOL!

That was an awesome day!! (***Sorry for all the posts of the videos I don't know what happened***)We went to the Art Museum.... :-)We saw Sex & The City! :-)

We saw the Washington Monument and went to the Holocaust Museum.

We had so much fun! :-)

Then I came home and worked a few days and then this past weekend I went to Ohio for my cousins graduation and my other cousin and his fiances bridal shower. It was a lot of fun too, but really hot without Air conditioning...

So that's pretty much what's been happening here. I didn't see Matt for 2 weeks because he was going on adventures of his own to Montana for one of our friends that were getting married and he was in the wedding, but a few days before matt, the groom and some of the groomsmen all went to Las Vegas... he brought me back some classy Las Vegas fuzzy dice for my car! LOL!!!! I got to see him yesterday though so that was great! :-) It's amazing how much you can miss someone when you don't get to see them... but those 2 weeks were just a taste of what to come because Matt decided he is going to grad school (seminary) in Chicago. Well, really it's in Deerfield, IL but it's right outside of Chicago. It'll be kind of stinky for the 2 years I am in school, but we'll make it work and it'll be good in the long run. :-)

Well... I'm going to bed now... if you read this... comment because I'm feeling like I just wasted my time because no one ever reads this blog. LOL!!!
