Something else exciting happened! This weekend, we took a trip to Washington D.C. for the weekend. We’d gotten tickets to the Metropolitan Food Show, and to see Guy Fieri give a presentation (he was an absolute riot, really. Very funny guy and I’m so glad we got to see him). I got us a room in Inner Harbor of Baltimore so Sunday we could walk around the Inner Harbor and visit the Aquarium. The weather cooperated so well, it was almost 70 for our walk around the Inner Harbor. Brianna loved every minute of the aquarium and kept saying it was “the best day of my life!” I got some good shots of her, here’s a few:
But in between our time at the food show, and our stay in the Inner Harbor, we took a little detour. To Mini of Alexandria. Where we weren’t really intending to buy a car, but four hours later, I drove off the lot in my new baby, a 2009 Cooper Convertible. I LOVE it. It’s fun, and so stinking cute, and amazing to drive. We got a fantastic deal on it, and I ended up with a convertible (which I really wanted) and heated seats (which I also really wanted) and butter soft leather seats (which I had ever intention of NOT getting but now that I have them…yum). The car is ridiculously gorgeous inside, with a mix of chrome and piano black trim, making it super shiny and fancy looking. Malle asked me today if it’s my Harlequin car and yes, I guess it is. She needs a name. The Evil Editor’s Reluctant Ride? Heheheh. Kidding! Something pretty and sassy. It will come to me. But in the meantime, let me share some pictures with you.
The top goes back part way so it’s a sunroof! I love that!
Like my styling carseat in the back? Yeah, I’m hot 😛
Sadly, no pictures of me with the car yet. Hopefully this weekend when Josh is home during daylight. But there she is, my new car. All mine. Wheee! It’s been a good week so far.
