I was so excited to see some friends while we were in DC on Friday. Mel and I met up with Katy, Cait and Adam for dinner in Georgetown and it was so great to see them.
Adam has a job that lead me to believe he might work in the mall.. as in where the White House and Washington Monument are.. not a shopping mall, but when I asked him if he worked in the mall it opened this silly conversation where he told me "yes, Sarah, I'm the mall security guard." It might be one of those "you had to be there" types of things, but I really enjoyed that conversation, even though the humor was at my expense. I feel like that happens to me a lot.. good thing I'm such a good sport!
Earlier that same day, but after we enjoyed delicious cupcakes in Georgetown, Mel and I got to explore the mall.. the one with the White House and Obama. It was pretty amazing to walk around and admire all the monuments. The security is a lot tighter there now than I remember. You can't exactly walk wherever you want, but that's ok. It's understandable.
Friday was one of the longest days ever...waking up at 4:20am, the 5 hour drive to DC, walking around and shopping in Georgetown, checking out the national monuments, meeting friends for dinner, and then meeting some of Mel's friends for a drink and accidentally staying out till last call. It actually sounds like and felt like multiple days. By the time we got back to our hotel room I would have been happy to go to sleep on a concrete floor. Luckily Mel picked a lovely hotel with the best beds ever because we stayed in them until noon the next day.
I'd do it again though- so much fun. And I just realized.. when I get together with friends that I don't get to see that often we either stay up until 4am or wake up at 4am. Ha that's funny to me.
