Travelin' Fool

After a long day, I have made it to Washington D.C. Rosie and I both got very early starts this morning, up and marginally conscious by 4AM. We met up at the airport, got ourselves fully caffeinated, and boarded the plane. The travel itself went fine. Totally uneventful flights, everything went according to plan.

I think a big reason everything went so well is that Rosie and I were around to distract each other. Travel is just more fun when you have someone to chat with about romance novels.

We got to the hotel a little before 7PM, got checked in and then met up with Kristie, where much squee-ing ensued. Then it was a quick dinner, and now we're all hanging out in the room chatting about books, kids, significant others, and any other nonsense we can think up. Tomorrow it's some sight-seeing and hooking up with Barbara, who is taking the train down.

Well kids, it's back to the slumber party. It's also late, so I should also think about bed.....

While you're in my neck of the woods, if you have time go visit Hello Cupcake (http://www.hellocupcakeonline.com/) in Dupont Circle.

On Thursday they have the Velvet Elvis cupcake - banana bread cake with light peanut butter frosting. De-lic-ious.

Dude, screw Hello Cupcake (they are good) but if you want a great cupcake go to Georgetown Cupcake. Also, Clyde's is having a crab cake special this month. I don't know if you like crab, but if you do go-- you can't skip having one being around the Chesapeake Bay.

Hiya everybody! I really need to be in bed trying to get some sleep, so what am I doing? Reading blog comments.

Thanks for the food suggestions. A girl cannot have too many dessert options, says me.

Sula! I really hope you're able to come down and visit us!

I'm going to try to keep up with the comments, but will probably be worse than usual in responding. Busy, busy, busy. I haven't checked my Google Reader since Sunday night, and now I'm scared....LOL
