Thanks Mom & Dad!

One of the best parts of my vacation was the trip to visit Fallingwater that my parents planned.  It was so much fun and so special.  I’m going to post a detailed entry of my tour in another post, but for now I just want to say, “Thanks Mom & Dad!”

This picture was taken on the property of one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s usonian homes.  In the background are the rollings hills of Pennsylvania . . . My parents are so cute.

happy hour 4 & 5

Well, I’ve been back from my vacation for couple of weeks now and it was a lot of fun.  Since I’ve been back, I’ve really missed my brother and all of the happy hours that we hit up after his 9-5 job. . .

happy hour 4: green apple martini at Gordon Biersch Brewery

happy hour 4.5: blue moon at Amada Amante

happy hour 5: a really good stout whose name I can’t remember at Growlers

happy hour 5.5: does a warm glazed doughnut (or two) from Krispy Kreme count?

I have an awesome big brother because he didn’t hesitate to pull over when I semi-drunkenly yelled out, “Doughnuts!” from the passenger seat.  Now, if he would only take my advice about chicken and waffles.  I hope he visits me in Boston soon. . .

Mama Wok

Lunch with my grandmother at one of her favorite Chinese restaurants, Mama Wok–She loves the hot and sour soup there and I have to agree . . .

no. 1 happy hour

I’m pretty sure Boston has some weird laws about discounting liquour, so while I’m visiting my family, I’m going to be taking advantage of happy hour here.

My brother and I enjoying the happy hour at Rio Grande–I’m consuming some crazy beverage called the Squirrel.  It has like frozen margarita and sangria and a plastic flamingo wearing high heels.

a much needed break

I’m visiting my family right now and enjoying a much needed break.  The clouds going into D.C. were pretty, but that was about the only enjoyable aspect of my flight . . .

There was absolutely no leg room!  I’m a petite girl, so I wondered how the taller passengers must have been feeling.  Also, I flew on American and they charge for checked bags now–$15 for the first bag and $25 for a second.  I decided not to check anything in, but because I only bought a one way ticket, I was chosen for additional screening and a security agent had to check everything in my bags.  I managed to fit a lot of stuff in them and after a while, the security agent exclaimed, “Another pair of shoes?!”  Oh, she has no idea.
