The Weekend

Posted on April 24, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Hydrangeas are some of my fave flowers.  The ladies in our wedding carried them along with hyacinth in their bouquets.  I’ve been admiring the brightly colored hydrangeas at Whole Foods every time I walk by. I never want to buy them because I worry I won’t actually be able to keep them alive.  So I’ll continue to admire (every day) when I go to WF.

I made chai spice muffins this weekend, I mentioned that I wanted to make these back in December, but never got my act together.  I made them for a co-worker’s bday who is also as much of a chai lover as me.  I think they turned out pretty well. I thought they were a little too dense and dry, but everybody that tasted them seemed to enjoy them, I assume they were telling the truth!

I got in the car to drive to the gym this weekend (yes I drive even thought it’s down the street, it was pouring)!  And this is what the odometer read.

It’s really hard to tell from this pic, but it was at 123456. I thought it was so fun!

Speaking of the car, Justin and I woke up bright and early Saturday morning to visit the D.C. Emissions Inspection station.  The place opens at 7:00 am. We got there at about 6:30 and we were lucky enough to be able to scoot to the front of the line that is typically reserved for commercial vehicles.  I was psyched particularly because I was anxious about getting home in time to make it TRX with Stephanie!

Inspection station fun!

We are quickly approaching our 1 year anniversary next week and I’m really looking forward to celebrating the day (throughout the weekend)!

We had cupcakes for our wedding dessert:

I had not planned on saving one to eat the next year per tradition, but my mom took one home and froze it. The cupcake found it’s way back to us last week.  Justin has no desire to try to the thawed out cupcake, I’ll give it a shot and see what it tastes like, but I think what we should do is just order another dozen of these to eat!!
