Need for Green

Happy St. Paddy's Day!  The green is abundant and Spring is on it's way, right?  Well here in Washington, it is all white today.  We had our heaviest snow of the year last night/this morning...7-9 inches in most parts of the area today!  Enough already!  Bring me Springtime!

I feel like you all are feeling just like me today, and need an extra special dose of green with your cup of coffee.  Cheers to Spring and a city of green--I know we all need it!

American Cool

Last week, I went to the National Portrait Gallery to see its newest exhibit, "American Cool".  It featured individuals in American culture since the 1940s that have helped define "cool" in our country.  Most featured were familiar to me, a few not, but I definitely all had that quintessential cool factor that we all seem to admire.  A few of my favorites: Jimi Hendrix, Bill Murray, Chrissie Hynde, Frank Sinatra--we just a few of artists, athletes, actors, authors, musicians and social activists that made there mark in shaping our culture.

I really enjoyed this exhibit, and encourage you all to take it in.  It is at the Portrait Gallery until September 7th, so plenty of time to see it!

The Hexen

Dolce Vita Hexen

I'm not normally a shoe-girl, but lately have been on a bit of an obsession coveting all the new Spring shoes that are coming out.  At the top of my list--the Dolce Vita Hexen.  I love the mix of neutral and black, a bit dressy and a bit bohemian.  I do not need to start buying again, especially now that I have to pay for Georgetown, but boy do I love these shoes.  Love them.

Big News!

Remember a month or so ago when I mentioned that I was working on a project?  Well, part one of that has been fulfilled:  On Saturday, I received my acceptance letter from Georgetown University!  This has been an unspoken dream of mine for many, many years, and I am so excited that I can finally call myself a Hoya!  I will be working toward my Master's in Public Relations and Corporate Communications, taking one to two classes a night each semester.  It will be challenging, and hard work, but I couldn't be more excited to begin. 

Thanks so much for all the positive words of encouragement and the congratulations--it means so much to me!  Now, off to find a way to pay for this!
