Disney on Ice

My darling husband planned a fun night for us last night. We went to dinner and then Disney on Ice. It was a very impressive show and so fun to hear the familiar songs and see the amazing costumes. It's always so fun to go into the city and enjoy a night out together.
Thanks, Peter, for a fun Valentines date night!

Blizzard of 2010

I'm sure many of you have heard about the storms we've had over the last week or so in the D.C. area, but I still have to document it on our blog. Last weekend we got over 29 inches of snow in just two days. Everything was shut down and there was snow everywhere. It took us two hours just to dig out one car. We explored a little bit during the day and even went snowboarding down the street a few times.Then on Tuesday of last week we had another snow storm hit. We still had not quite recovered from the first. I'm not sure how much snow we got in total that day, but it was an absolute blizzard. The news said we were getting 2 inches of snow an hour and the winds were 44 miles per hour. Unbelievable! We could not even see the road outside our window, it was just total white out.So needless to say we have had a fun time over the last week. School and work were canceled for us Monday through Thursday this last week. Isn't that crazy?! There was just no way to get around because the snowplows could not possibly get to all the roads yet, let alone actually keep them clear. It was fun to get to spend so much time together. Hopefully the enormous piles of snow everywhere will melt before summer.

A friendly Surprise

We opened the door the other morning to go to work and found this on our doorstep! Have I mentioned the missionaries live above us?!

It's really big and I'm not sure how they were able to get it up the stairs, but it did give us a good laugh.

Catholic University

I had to speak to some social work students at Catholic University the other day and I was reminded how beautiful the campus is. I got my masters there and really loved it. They have some of the most beautiful buildings on campus. It was great to have all of my memories of grad school come flying back to me as I visited.
