I can’t really believe we’ve been in the Washington, D.C. area now for two months and we are heading into our third! What a ride. The past month we’ve been able to adventure out a little bit more and the best news yet…we got our stuff! Let’s rewind…
Our Second Month In Washington, DC
Our household goods got delivered a bit sooner than we had anticipated, which is always a huge win, especially when it comes to a military move. What’s even better is that we only had a few major casualties (one being our guest bed..womp womp!)
I am happy to report that we are all unpacked and settling in for the next couple months before we do all this over again. Insert some sort of chaotic emoji here 😉
We had our first set of visitors – my parents! And then our second set of visitors, our dear friends Casey, Eric, and their son, from NC. It felt nice to have familiar faces in our space again, plus we got to explore the National Mall.
A perk of having all out stuff again means I can get back into the kitchen making the recipes I love. First things first – homemade pasta!
The weather has been teasing us a little bit with sporadically beautiful days and trust me when I tell you that I am CRAVING spring and all the (hopefully) blue skies and warmer temps it can bring. We’ve taken the warm-ish days to get the dogs out on some local trails, which they have loved.
One of the big perks of living in this area is the proximity to delicious restaurants. This month we discovered Barley Mac, Urbano 116, Paraiso, and Good Company Donuts. All are amazing and it’s good for us to get out for date nights.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day with a low key dinner at home. We gifted each other a membership to Rose’s Luxury Dinner Club (we went there for my birthday) and I’m so excited to get our first delivery!
And in potentially the most exciting news of all, we love our new vet. Bill had a huge surgery as soon as we arrived (he did great!) and Judy has lost 5 pounds. It’s safe to say the Hanson Labs are living the good life 🙂
Looking forward to more adventures on the horizon. Let’s do this, DC!
