The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 31

The Good: 
Sooooooo....huge life news....I'm a homeowner! It's been in the works since March and the deal was inked this week! It's still in White Plains and is an adorable townhouse in this sweet condo complex. It's two floors, amazing little details, and just so perfect!

The Random:
They shrink-wrapped my Peloton! I couldn't stop laughing when I saw how they prepped it. 

The Fun:
My moving day buddy. We had a blast with the movers who were awesome (even more so given the near 100ยบ temps!) and made quite the team!

American University: Revisted

A trip to DC isn't complete without a trip to AU! I hadn't been on campus in 5 years and it's always amazing to be back and see what's changed. I forgot how gorgeous the campus is, especially in summer with flowers everywhere. It's crazy to think that it's been 16 years since I started as a freshman and 12 since I graduated!

 I explored a few of the new buildings that have been built in the last few years and just meandered around. One fun change was the lower level of the bookstore is now a hip cafe. It was the actual textbook part, I guess no one uses 100lb textbooks anymore...? The new science building is just stunning, a far cry from the former science hall that was built in 1896! It's always good to be back, as we say once an Eagle, always an Eagle!

Tour de Museums

No trip to DC is complete without a trip down to the mall to see the museums. The Mall was hopping and I managed to squeeze in 3 museums in one day! I started at the National Portrait Gallery, which I am ashamed to say I had never been to before. Sadly the Obama portraits are still on tour, but I saw a ton of other amazing portraits of former presidents and other famous Americans.
I took a quick spin through the sculpture garden on my way down the mall. I was tempted to jump into the fountain to escape the heat and humidity, but refrained!
I was bummed to have just missed the futures exhibit at the Smithsonian Castle, but one piece was still installed outside. The actual "fail" of the day was that I had planned to go to the new African American History and Culture museum but it's still thehot ticket in town and you actually need...tickets. So alas, no entry for me. 
I "plan b'ed" the rest of the afternoon and wandered around the Museum of American History and the Natioanl Gallery of Art. Both had some new exhibits since I was there last, plus the tried and true pieces on display.
I forgot how amazing it is to be able to walk up and down the mall and go in and out of the museums. It was such a college perk to have free access to these national treasures. This trip, the arctic level air conditioning was an added bonus!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 30

The Good:
I spent the weekend in DC for my uncle's 80th birthday party. A wonderful milestone!

The Random:
This made me laugh. Make it sustainable, but college sustainable. 

The Fun:
It's always fun to see family! It's even more special after the last few years.
