I've been away from the blogging world for a few days now, but have lots to fill you in on :)

I hope everyone had as wonderful a weekend as I did. I was so happy that SM & D travelled up to DC to watch some races and celebrate easter. On Thursday, my boat had one practice in the morning so I was free all afternoon to hang out with my parents. We walked down to the monuments. It was nice and sunny, but the wind made it a bit chilly. Most of the cherry blossoms were gone, but it was still nice to see a few here and there. We got frozen yogurt from SM's favorite place, Sweet Greens; I always get strawberries, granola, and chocolate chips. HEAVEN! I went back to campus and SM & D went back to the hotel to get ready before dinner. We ended up at Clyde's... very yummy.
We had brunch on Friday before the regatta. After the race, California Funk (he's basically my brother. It's weird. He's a dork.) had organized for a few of our closest rowing friends to have dinner together with all of our families. What place could be more appropriate than The Tombs (a rowing themed restaurant/bar). Everyone had a ton of fun.
The regatta consisted of two races on Saturday, and unfortunately the weather wasn't the greatest, but we still raced pretty well. CF and I decided that our families should eat together again for dinner. Plus, we planned on going to Vineyard Vines to convert him into a prep. The dinner was fun, and the shopping trip was a SUCCESS! YAY!
Easter was pretty relaxing. SM & D and I went to a small little hole-in-the-wall for breakfast. It was MUCH chillier this morning, but I insisted on wearing a white Lilly dress. I did wear my pink J. Crew coat so I didn't actually freeze. The easter bunny came and brought me Vera Bradley binder clips, highlighters (who knew they made VB highlighters?), and Post-Its as well as a gold chain necklace with three tiny pearls. Plus candy! I was sad to say goodbye to SM& D after a quick trip to Starbucks for warm drinks.
I've spent the afternoon doing some spring cleaning. I just love having a clean room and I can be quite a bit OCD about it. Seriously. Oh, and I'm waiting on my laundry to dry. Normally I would send it out (I know, I know.. but with crew, it's hard to find time), but the service I use isn't running this weekend because of Easter.
