Washington DC; The OTHER Washington

***TODAY is the last day to enter the Miss Money Bags Giveaway! You have until 5 pm MST! All you have to do is comment on the post! ENTER PEOPLE. ENTER! I took a trip to DC for work last week and came back totally exhausted. End post. Legit. So tired. Traveling with a sling is crappy, but I still managed to take some pictures for you all. Aren't I just the nicest?!?

Here are the few snaps of my trip that I was able to capture. First up, my room at the Crown Plaza Hamilton was nice... small but nice. It also had this cool mirror etching by the bed that displayed some of the "circles" in DC. There are a bunch and I can never keep them straight. I am such an informative tourist.

The biggest victory of this trip was actually my outfits. Sam came over before I left and helped me pick out my work gear for the week. I tell you what, having your bestie help you pick out clothes makes packing SO much easier. Congrats Sam. You're hired. IMG_5982






































































Now let me just talk about this last picture. We went to Rose's Luxury: Bon Appetite's number 1 new restaurant in America. We ate the whole menu and it was amazing. Our bill? $40 each. Bam. It was so good and the chef even took a menu and crossed out or modified all of the things that I could/n't eat. It was the best meal of life. So, eat there. Please. Just do it. Wait for a table and do it. IMG_6010


I have waited a good long while to post these pictures because I just couldn't pick a few that I liked. I loved this day in the fields. It all started when we pulled off of the freeway to check out this farm. After futzing around here for a while, LB noticed a super low flying plane off in the distance.

Check out how cool the cobweb looks on this wire...

There is something about going from a single blade of grass like this to the desolate field below. That's how things go, I think. Feast, famine. Ups, downs. But there is always a circle, a rhythm a consistency in the inconsistency.

As we drove down the road towards the plane, a guy pulled along side us and said, "Oh if you take a right up there you can see him doing some work over Jim's field." Right. Jim's field. On it.

The pilot then put on a show for us. Once he spotted me out with my camera, he started dive bombing right at us. It was incredible. My favorite of these pictures I did not post here because I am going to post in my Etsy store soon-ish. I think it would look great framed in a ton of people's houses. Especially mine. :)

I like to think that he is giving us a thumbs up in this picture.



Getting some of these pictures of this plane really made me start to love photography. I just can't express how fun it was to see the shots all lined up and scroll through the photos to see the plane dive bombing at us over and over again. I loved it.
