My Everyday Life [Week 32]

Everyday life during the week of August 1st through the 7th. 

I was scanning a lot of photos of my dad and family in prep for an upcoming party. I always liked this photo of my parents at our old house. 
Monday, August 1st was a hectic and long day of work, but this was my beautiful view! I could see our subdivision from here. 
 Being surrounded by pretty flowers always makes me happy too.
We went to our second Tai Chi class on Tuesday. When in class, I find myself thinking about how much I miss yoga, so I probably won't do Tai Chi again.
We went out for lunch and custard at Le Ducs custard in Wales. This was our dessert. I never order sundaes, but this was Door County cherry themed and I could not resist.
The kitties turned 3 on Sunday the 7th! Unfortunately, I only saw them for about 5 minutes because I had to get up super early to fly to Washington D.C. for a work conference. 
One of these three year olds' favorite things lately is sitting in the windows and enjoying the fresh, cooler air. 
A colleague and I hopped on the plane to D.C. and started our five day adventure there! We walked along the pretty National Harbor when we arrived. 
I ate so well all week. The conference we attended did a fantastic job ordering veg options and I was impressed. I was pretty sick of eating bigger meals by day three or four though.
 The hotel we stayed at, also on the harbor. Such a huge and beautiful place!
 I stepped away for some much needed introvert time to sip a hard cider and check out the sunset.
 So many delicious tiny desserts all week!

My Everyday Life [Week 31]

I'm back! I didn't mean to take an unofficial break, so now I am playing catch up. Here is what the week of July 25-31st looked like.

I bring a lot of crap with me on my lunch breaks. I tried sitting in a new spot. It was a bit buggy for me.
Found at the library after our first Tai Chi class.
 I had to pick something up from the Harley Davidson campus for work. It was fun to check it out!
German Fest on Saturday with my Mutti! I wasn't happy to be wearing my eyeglasses, but a stupid eye infection required I go contact lens free for four days.
Fun with my mama, the pretzel queen. She didn't buy the obatzda dip with the gigantic pretzel so I had to go back to get it. The woman working there said, "she was the only person I have ever seen buy that big pretzel without a dip." I said, "yep, that's my mom."
First time checking out the Trachtenschau (fashion show) and it was really cool to see the clothing from different regions in Germany. The genealogy geek in me wondered what my ancestors may have worn.
 The parade!
I turned myself into Harry Potter. Now those eyeglasses are cool. :)
An old photo of my dad and I. My sister shared this photo and I think it was the first time I had seen it.
A graze snack while working on a Sunday. I had to get ready for an event the next day and needed the energy to stay focused. It's hard to go in on a weekend!
