My Week in Pictures // Spring Break Edition

My roommate Court and I decided to be "spontaneous" and went to Oceanside one night.

Sunset surf

I heart peeps!

Court and I bought some flowers and decorated our porch.

I definitely took advantage of the free Pantone paint samples at Lowe's

I am in love with these bulbs that are growing right outside my front door!
I feel like there is sunshine beaming up at me whenever I walk outside.

Butter lettuce is The Best kind of lettuce there is. 

Is anyone else thinking "poppies"?

There really is nothing in the world quite like a new sketch book.

Peanut butter + chocolate = LOVE

These fruity Macarons from Trader's are simply delightful.

I had the privilege of taking Le Boo Boo to her first eye doctor appointment.

She had the same doctor that I had growing up.

Sweet & Savory Sweet Potatoes {I made lots of these - Lolo loves sweet potatoes!}

Poolside + New Book = PERFECTION
I began reading Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here a few to highlight my first business trip (which was also my first trip to the East Coast. . . I don't get out much) that occurred back in November.
I went to Baltimore, Maryland for a conference and was so nervous about flying. I am a firm believer that God created gravity for a reason (so why defy it??).
 Since the trip, I have flown a total of 3 times in my life.
I was grateful for the opportunity since it meant facing my fears but I was also terrified because it meant facing my fears.
I cried 3 times the day before the trip (I really hate flying!) but I was a big girl and survived the flight there and back and have learned once again, that the Lord is faithful and I need to depend on Him.

I purchased this vintage suitcase on eBay just for my trip -
I always feel like I should be singing "I Have Confidence" from The Sound of Music when I use it.
Exiting the airport in Baltimore - You'll never know how happy I was to be off the plane!

Sunrise Day 1

I accidentally stayed on the elevator and went up to the 14th floor
{I didn't realize the hotel had 14 floors}
I had never stayed in such a "fancy" hotel before.
The inner harbor

The USS Constellation

Sunrise Day 2

Shot from inside my hotel room - can you see the reflection?

Wreckage from 9/11

Have accessories, will travel.

I'm not one who cares much for seafood but their calamari strips are amazing!

Inside Phillips

The hotel at night - the purple Vs are lights inside the glass elevators.
It was definitely had a  Charlie Bucket feel. 

The skywalk 

Little Italy

My colleagues and I were actually supposed to meet some friends
in DC for dinner but the plans changed last minute.
We ended up eating here instead and I "randomly"
ran into my friend Katie from church!

Vaccaro's is the best place to go for dessert in Little Italy.
