My Country Tis of Thee

This weekend I visited our great nation’s capital. I am embarrassed to say that this was only the second time I have been to Washington D.C. Either way, it was an incredible weekend and I ready to move there – that is unless the next election doesn’t go my way…

One of my favorite people in the whole word is moving to Washington D.C. next weekend. I am so excited to have my friend (who will remain nameless because she is paranoid about internet exposure) closer to New York and foresee many more girls weekends in our future.

From 2002 – 2005, we spent this weekend every year swimming our hearts our at the Ivy league Championships. While we weren’t roommates in college, we always roomed together during that swim meet. It was a funny coincidence that we got to, again, spend this weekend in a hotel, hanging out. And this time, I think we were both excited to have the focus be on something other than swimming, shaving, swimming, sleeping, swimming and eating Wheaties. Instead we walked around the city, looked at apartments, checked our neighborhoods and took in some of our country’s great history.

The absolute highlight part of the weekend was when, as we passed by the White House on Friday night, I saw the silhouette of a dark and hansom character taking a late evening stroll in the yard…

No, not President Obama… even better….

BO OBAMA!

How freaking cute? I think if Bo were to meet my niece Bexley – there might be our own Royal wedding. Take that Will and Kate.

Oh and did I mention that Abby came into the city for Sunday brunch? Yah, I didn’t think one weekend could pack so much fun either!!!!!

My Thoughts on The State of the Union

I really wanted to write a blog today recapping my thoughts on the State of the Union address last night. Sadly I got caught up in work today and seem to find myself unable to commit the solid amount of time that a post like this requires. Thankfully, a fellow blogger over at pink brief case wrote one that is right up my alley!

You are seriously funny. Let’s be friends?

I was able to get a few of my own thoughts down that weren’t addressed in her post:

1. Really Hillary, you think it is appropriate for a woman of your age (and not to mention stature) to wear a headband? Hopefully you aren’t accessorizing like that when you go and meet with President’s of foreign countries. I can’t see Mahmoud Ahmadinejad taking you too seriously wearing a blinged out head-piece – unless it was a tiara. And let’s be serious Hill, you know I love you, but you are no Kate Middleton.

2. Michelle –  you look awesome (as per usual)! I don’t care what type of job your husband is doing, you are transforming fashion in the white house and I support it. Rock on.


3. Debbie Bosanek, (AKA Warren Buffet’s secretary) I am so sorry that your boss continues to make an example out of you. Not only does he and others continue to call you a secretary (I am sure you official title is something much more dignified like “executive assistant”) but has he even asked you if you are comfortable being forced into the lime light as a tax victim? And who knows, maybe you are an investing genius and you are actually making more than old Mr. Buffet and that is why you pay more in taxes. Geez, give this poor woman a break already! At least they seated her next to Laurene Powell Jobs, that’s pretty baller.

4. Vice President Biden, are you checking you text messages? I know you are number two in line, but number one is talking. Show some respect.

Finally, on a related but different note, how much does Mitt Romney look like Guy Smiley from Sesame Street? I can’t decide if that makes me like Mitt more or less…

 

You’ve Got My Vote

Last night I decided to watch my first debate of the Republican presidential nominees. I have to say, one guy stood out to me and is definitely getting my vote.

 


Even with his recent Gawker/Lana Del Rey scandal and his excessively orange skin, Brian Williams is certainly my favorite GOP candidate.

What? He isn’t official running for the nomination? Hmm, could have fooled me – reports indicate that Williams spoke 2,137 words during the debate, only 819 fewer than Ron Paul (and I KNOW that guy is in the running).

B. WILLIAMS FOR PRESIDENT. SPRAY TANS FOR ALL!
