During February...oh, and March too!

February flew by, and I can hardly believe that March is almost over! Here is what has been going on the past few weeks.

1. I got a new job. I am working in communications and LOVE what I do. It has kept me pretty busy, which is why my blogging suffered. Now that I am more settled with my new responsibilities, I am back!

In celebration of my new job, Mark got me this great blouse from Lilly Pulitzer:

(I love it!)

2. We spent Valentine's Day in Annapolis with our best friends - the guys all grew up together and the girls have become best friends. We are glad that we all live close enough to meet up. Here is a picture of the crew after we had dinner at El Toro Bravo - best Mexican food ever!

Then some of went out for drinks at Ram's Head, which might be my new favorite bar!

3. Then we went skiing with our friends Phil and Kami, the couple on the right in the picture above. We went out to McHenry, Maryland to go skiing at Wisp Mountain. Kami's college friends get together each year, and this is our second year tagging along. We had good snow conditions and more importantly a lot of fun. Here is a picture of the whole crew:

4. We took a road trip through Lancaster, PA to see my sister Brooke play basketball in the state tournament. Unfortunately her team lost, but it was great to see the family. Here is a picture of My mom, me, sister Julia, and Grandmom before the basketball game started:

5. We were also able to stay with our friends Faith and Kyle and their son Noah. While we were there we taught Noah how to wave! It was pretty cool.

6. We went to baby Dillon's baptism. She is getting so big so fast, I cannot believe it. It was great to see her and Tommy and Fallon. Here is a picture of them right after the baptism:

7. We joined our church, Grace Presbyterian, DC. We have been going for about a year and love it. We have found great fellowship and look forward to growing deeper in this church.

8. My birthday! My best guy friends from high school and their girlfriends came down to help celebrate. We hung out at our house and then toured Georgetown and the recent Bob Marley exhibit at the Govinda Gallery. It was an awesome weekend!

9. Mark had friends from church surprise me on Sunday night for Mark's special homemade pizza and cake, Coconut Cake! It was such a surprise and wonderful to have everyone over!

10. Mark and I went out to dinner for my birthday to this great little Belgian/French cafe, Belga. We heard about Belga when we first moved to the city, but had never gotten there. It was such a treat to go for my birthday. We ate a delicious dinner. Now I can't wait to go back. Mark did a wonderful job planning; it was the perfect birthday!

So that is most of what has been going on...

Oh yeah, we are also house hunting. Just another thing to add into the mix. I look forward to keeping you posted on that!
