Ooooh..... excitement mixed with large doses of caffeine is inspiring this blog post!!!
*insert geeky squeal*
I think... I might... have talked... the egyptian.. into.. a weekend... in DC!
Okay, I am sure you guys just rolled your eyes. But you simply MUST understand - DC is MY city. You know how he dreams and pines for NYC? DC is my NYC! Always has been.
I heart history and politics and journalism and the mid-atlantic. It's far enough north to get a real winter, but close enough to the south to experience a beautiful spring.
Our first wedding anniversary is Nov. 17th. The Islamic one. We will have been married 4 years. As we were driving home, I asked him, "Hey.. I was thinking... what if we spent a long weekend in DC for our anniversary?" He nodded and smiled. Trust me - that's a good thing!
See, the costs of hotels in DC are much cheaper in the fall. Since this would be his first trip, all of the museums are free.. and there is TONS to do. I think he will be blown away! How can you immigrate to America and not pay respects to our nation's capital? ;-)
I have something to plan! As long as my personal financial situation/job situation does not change... all should be well! We could even fly up - bang out a Saturday and fly back, if we had to!
I am just giddy with anticipation!!!!
