SPICE GIRLS

BRB, I'm just dying over here.
Kids 1997
Don't know why I was always too afraid to admit that I liked the Spice Girls.  I'm so obviously Posh. Which one is Sam, though? (Paigey is Baby, of course)

What I Learned At Game Night

As told via my tweets.

My Red Sox hat makes me look like an old pop star?

I've still got a mean 'stache.  Caitlin, too.

My antics scare Maggie and Becky and Caitlin's Asian neighbors.
So basically I learned that I'm awesome.

Memorial Day

Even though all of my attempts to go the beach fell through and even though it was cloudy and not terribly warm (but not terribly cold, either) and even though I wasn't feeling super well, I was able to at least spend a few hours poolside yesterday.

Georgetown And England

This past Friday, Stephanie and I wandered around Georgetown as we made our way to her office at the British Embassy.  We tasted chocolate and ate fish'n'chips and found what should have been a pretty park and took a secret path in the woods that transported us to England (pretty literally, in this case).

The Great Gatsby Birthday Party

My birthday was on Sunday, and guys, it was amazing. The kind of birthday that was so good and beautiful and fun and touching that I'm slightly in shock writing/thinking about it.

I had a Great Gatsby party on Sunday to celebrate!! I want to shout Thank You! from the rooftops to my roommates for helping set up/keeping the event running smoothly, to Jennifer and Bianca and Sarah for bringing delicious food, and to everybody for dressing up!!!  Everyone dressed up!!! Major win!

Pictaaa overload. I don't have the 'book, so I can do that. And we kept the lights low for ambiance, so everyone ended up with those white/glittery eyes. Festive, right?:

Jessica gave the most beautiful toast (which I hear was my friend Jeff's idea- how sweet is he?), and I was so touched. What a moment, I'll never forget it.
