Weekend in D.C.

Monday, March 8, 2010
Remember when I was a blogger? Me too.

With the purchase of that so-called home, a busy week at work and a secret trip to Washington D.C., I haven't posted in a week.

We all ventured east to surprise this girl for a few days of way too much fun and not enough sleep. You see, we surprised our friend Katey with "happy-engagement-you-are-getting-married-in-three-weeks" kind of party. Are you following? My friend, Gretchen, came up with the idea a few months ago and after lots of planning and date changes, we pulled off one hell of a surprise.

Here is Katey, in awe, and not sure how the hell we all ended up in her city and she not know a single detail. She kept repeating, "I can't believe you guys are here" over and over at lunch.

As I sit here and write this post while watching the Oscars, I think it will be more fun for everyone if I just post a few pictures to kick off your Monday. Between the amazingly fun weekend and the six hour car ride, I'm exhausted from laughing, drinking and hanging out with some of the best friends in the world.

And to think, we all met back in junior high and still remain friends.

Hanging outside Obama's house. I tweeted to meet up but he was too busy.

We completely surprised our friend Katey and have lots of incriminating photos to prove our reunion in D.C. really happened. It went by too quickly and we all agreed we need a yearly reunion.
