Happy Almost Friday

It has been a rough few weeks around here after we found out my dad had to have emergency knee surgery to combat an infection, but we’re all safe and on the mend. And little Chick has been giving us quite the laugh when we need it most.

Dogs in the kitchen

With the weather cooling down and me trying to act like an adult by cooking more, I decided to bring out my crock pot earlier this week in the hopes of making a new recipe. Read more

America’s capital

This past weekend I headed to the nation’s capital for the first time. It was a long overdue visit to see my friend from college, Nicole. After arriving Friday evening, we set off to see the sights, try new restaurants and experience D.C. Here are a few photos from my excursions, if you’d like to see:)

Upon arriving, I headed for the Metro and made my way down the yellow line toward U street, where Nicole was staying. While many people told me their train system was awesome, I was not that impressed. D.C. doesn’t operate on a flat fee system and it was more confusing than the CTA to navigate.

On Friday evening, we headed out for dinner and then went to the top of the W Hotel to see the skyline at night.

On Saturday, after visiting the Holocaust Museum (which was amazing and heartbreaking), we toured the mall and all of the national monuments.

The World War II memorial was one of my favorites and the Rainbow Pool was refreshing and cool on such a humid day.

Abraham Lincoln memorial. Pretty classic.

The Korean War memorial was my favorite. It felt eerie and spooky, in an honorable way.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial is relatively new and I loved it. It was modern, but still touching.

Many of MLK’s famous quotes surrounded his statue. This one was my favorite.

I didn’t know D.C. had a Chinatown, and while it certainly isn’t like those of Chicago, San Francisco or New York City, it was still fun to see.

And on Sunday it was fun to meet up with friends from Madison, including Amber, who is also spending her summer in D.C.

While it was fun to visit, I was happy to come home to Chicago, and little Chick!
