City Life: Busy, busy busy!

Man, I am glad that I don’t get graded on keeping a blog. I’d definitely be failing if that were in the case.

BUT. In my very weak defense, I’ve been busy! Let’s us embark on a brief picture memo of my past few months.

April started off with my work legislative conference. Needless to say, that week was a blur. Long nights, early mornings, and a lot of running around. But at the end of the week, it was nice to enjoy a bit of fun with my Southern brethren at Taste of the South.

This year's theme was "Roaring Southern Nights"

Taste of the South is a black tie charity event founded over twenty years ago by some other displaced Southerners. It’s always a fun evening, and this sorority girl definitely appreciates the philanthropic aspect of the events!

It was a fun time with Meghan, Molly, and Peter — plus some random run-ins with other old friends!

The end of the night. I just love fresh flowers!

Two days after TOTS, my Mom came to town to visit! Her own fly-in was that week, but she stayed after to spend time with her favorite child.

April was also spent rehabilitating my leg. I’m playing soccer again, and I strained my quad in early April. I’ve loved getting back on the field, but man — injuries suck.

The beginning of May brought another one of my favorite rites of spring: Virginia Gold Cup.

My attempt at artsy photography. Also, tasty margarita!

It was a cool day for Gold Cup, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the fun at University Row. Ladies wore their Derby best, and the gents were dapper in their seersucker (Calgon, take me away!).

Two groups of friends met for the first time (Meghan and Molly from work, Sara and Meredith from my sorority), and fun was had by all!

Go Glen Coco, go!

And to wrap out the month, my grandmother and brother came to visit!

Despite his dislike for DC, Ross had fun — I think shopping at Vineyard Vines in Georgetown might have had a serious affect on him. It was great seeing family, and I can’t wait until I see them again over the 4th of July.

Last night was a bachelorette party for my dear friend, Katt! While I was sad I didn’t get to spend the entire evening in Adams Morgan with them (seriously, being a responsible soccer player is not fun sometimes), it was great having dinner with these Theta girls. Congratulations to Katt and Robin!

And now it’s June! Where has 2013 gone? I can’t wait to see what other sorts of fun this year has in store for me. Summer 2013 is going to be epic!
