IIIMMMM BBBAACCCKKK!!!

Honey, I'm HOME!!!
So for all of you that don't know I was in Washington D.C. area for 1 week.... It was AMAZING... I love it and wanted to move there, until I woke up this morning and it was 70 degrees without a cloud in the sky... California really is good to me! Besides that I love D.C. I think I could have stayed another week and still not seen all the beautiful things! I did a few memorable things that I will never forget in my life!!! (I will give them there own "post") I had such a wonderful time. I went to meet up with Juan and see his family. My Aunt recently moved there too so I got to spend a few days over there! Juan's abuelos (grandparents) were in from Ecuador. Its funny how the language barrier didn't seem to affect some ones personality. Juan's grandpa is hilarious... I have NO CLUE what he's saying but he's the cutest little man ever!

He still spoke to me in Spanish as if a miracle happened and I understood Spanish five minutes after I just gave him a blank look and a big cheesy grin... I would just smile and look at Juan for assistance..." CAN I GET A TRANSLATION PLEASE OR A FUCKING ROSETTA STONE!!!" I need Rosetta stone... badly... I would like to say its because I want to make myself more worldly and smart but reality is... Juans family only gossips in Spanish... and they watch a super SUPER good novella called " Las Tontas No Van Al Cielo" :) hahahaha

I wish we had the Metro in Laguna Beach. Its so easy and practical! I loved it!! We zoomed all around the city. I made this girl take a picture of Juan and I... Juan was so embarrassed I asked her, but who cares... It turned out to be my favorite picture of us so far.

Here I am across the street from the spy museum... SO LAME... Everyone told us how cool it was... Um... It sucked... My favorite part was the metal capsules they shoved up their ass full of tools and poison. All for the good ol' US of A

OH yeah.... In case you were wondering.... It was cold as SHIT... And since God apparently hates me he chose to make the two coldest days be the 2 days I was walking around DC.... Thank you Jesus. Also I want to thank Juan for telling me its not very cold... Well it was 10 degrees with massive wind storms (note hair below)

Also if you look at my Flickr you will notice most of the pictures taken of me, the monuments are cut out of them... Juan is a great photographer and thinks I strategically stand in front of monuments / sites of interest just so he can get my close up... NO BITCH... Get the Background too!!!

At least Juan was miserable with me... hehehe.... (NOTE: Hes freezing his little huevos off but...FULL MONUMENT IN PICTURE)

Here we are cheesing it up!! (I just wanted to try the Polodroid app)



This week will probably be a week full of DC pics and adventures... I also have a few new things I will be adding to my Etsy Which should be up.... eeehh next week... I can't wait to show you guys!!

My next post will be "The adventures in the hooded red scarf".... if you read back that far in my blog you would know that I had been dying to make myself a hooded red scarf... well I started it... but let the G-MA finish it for me... until then...
If you have been to DC what was your favorite thing?

as close as I live to DC (Philly area) I have never been there, not even for a school trip. I will have to make my way down there one of these days.

I went to DC in the 9th grade 1992, so that made me what?....15! I think my favorite thing was visint Mount Vernon, while not technically in DC, it's all part of the scene. Also, I like Arlington too. Gosh it's been sooooo long since I've been there. You look like you did much more interesting stuff though. Happy New Year!

We're taking our kids (11, 9, and 3) the end of February and we were going to do the spy museum...now, maybe not. Thanks for that tip. Glad you had fun! We'll pack warm clothes for sure!

I love DC too! I enjoy the art museums the best--almost as much as dragging my boyfriend through them---hee hee. I also loved the Korean War Memorial. The sculptures are fantastic.

Rachel said...

I agree with Amy, love the coat! You two are some stylin' motherfuckers.

I can't wait to see the hooded scarf!! Wooty woot woot!

Brook, you are such a hilarious writer. The spy museum comment had me laughing super loudly... Personally I find D.C. to be a huge bore for more than a couple of days, but I'm glad you had a fun trip. Take a Spanish class at a local community college & have Juan speak it with you until you learn it. Vamanos!
