Good Morning 29 years and 1 day

This is how I feel this early morning at 6:30am.  After a fabulous night out for my birthday.  Alex surprised me with the night's activities.  First, we went to see the Capitol Steps a political, musical satire group.  They were hilarious!  Then as we wondered through the enormous Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center we stumbled upon an award ceremony and party of some sort.  It was obvious there were some high profile guests in attendance so we slowed down and knew we could have easily walked right in.  We thought about it, scanned the area, and quickly noticed we were the only white people within sight, we figured we better keep walking.

I said, I bet Stacie from the Housewives of DC is here.  And bam, just like that we see her and her husband walking into the party.  We slowed way down, got some good looks of her and all the fabulous party guests, then went on our way.

From there we decided to hit up another Bravo reality favorite from Top Chef Mike Isabella at Zaytinya.  Food delicious.  It never dissapoints.

And home we went to collapse into bed.  And awake we were at 6:30 to start the day all over again.

Can you spot what Alex got me for my birthday?  
Hint...not the flowers...
Gold star for anyone who knows!

You sooo should have snuck into that party! Afterall, Mckalea and Tarec got into the Black Caucus Dinner. Then we could have all seen you on next season's Housewives of DC! Good career move, don't ya think?

Sounds like your birthday was memorable! I'm guessing Alex got you a new coffee maker...or a teacup?

Alex and Emily said...

Good guesses..but no...it's really really hard. That's why it's worth a gold star.

Hint...the card above C's head is from a particular place...

i see the card, but no gold stars for me. it's too blurry.

i think real housewives would be an excellent career move. you could start your own series, the real real housewives of d.c.

I like that, Molly! The Real Real Housewives of the Suburbs.

And just to be fair to all, my mom has also been emailing me her guesses for the gift. I suppose she didn't want to make all her guesses public, but she did get closest.

It was rather impossible now that I look at it. It's a card from World Vision. All their cards have the orange on the side. He donated a goat and 5 chickens in my honor. I thought that was really sweet.

World Vision is a great organization.
