Leaving on a Jet Plane…

Things are falling into place! My “date” picked up our tickets for the ball today, as well as my tickets to the swearing in ceremony…my nails are done…I borrowed shoes that should be tall enough…I have a hair appointment…I have a beautiful dress…and at this time tomorrow I will be landing in Baltimore!!

I still cannot believe that this is happening! My roommates are probably really tired of hearing about this, so they’re probably glad that it will be over soon. πŸ™‚

All my homework is done…all I have to do is finish classes and work today, pack, figure out which jewelery I am going to wear with my dress (white pearls or black pearls)…and get some rest…

I am so looking forward to this trip, to the experience, to the people with whom I will be visiting…and to being back in the city I loved so much (and the state of Pennsylvania, which I also love dearly)…

Details when I return!


Today was wonderful…75 degrees and sunny…AND, I found my dress for the Inaugural Ball!

Paige and I went shopping “early” this morning, and the third dress I tried on was “it”!

There will be pictures later, but for now, I want to keep it a surprise. But, I love it. It is very elegant, very classy…

Next mission: Find shoes to go with dress, with heels of at least 3 inches! (my dress is a bit long, especially since I am SO short).

Four days until D.C.!

Inaugural Ball Update!!

WOO HOO! I am going to a ball next week! My parents have offered to pay for me and my date to go next week! I will know for sure hopefully on Monday if I am not too late to respond to the invitation, and then it will be dress shopping time!! πŸ™‚

I can’t wait to go to Washington, D.C.!

Inaugural Ball

Oh, to not be a poor college student!

Found out today through one of my contacts that I can get into a ball for a MUCH reduced price–but still a price that is MUCH too high for my college student budget…not to mention that I’d have to go dress shopping…

Sigh…well, at least I know that I COULD have gone!

Forecast: SNOW!!

Yes, that’s right. While I’m in Pennsylvania (7 days from now!), it’s supposed to SNOW! WOO HOO! I can’t wait! It’s also supposed to snow in D.C. next Tuesday, which isn’t all that great since I’ll be outside for at least 6 hours on Thursday (the temp will be 45 though, so it will be melted).

As long as the roads are clear enough for me to get to Baltimore on Sunday, to fly back to California, then all will be well.

Yay snow!


So, have I mentioned lately that I am SOOOOO excited about my upcoming trip to the East Coast?! I cannot wait to go to Pennsylvania and see all the people I love so dearly! It’s been over a year now since I last saw them, and I just can’t wait.

Yes, I am more excited about PA than I am about D.C…but I’m excited about both.

I talked to my “Pennsylvania Parents” today, just because I am so anxious to see them.

10 days!! πŸ™‚

By the way, it is STILL raining here, and not just raining, but POURING. In the past four days we’ve had more than four times our seasonal average. Amazing.

Newt for President?

Wow–saw this article today and am a bit surprised! It seems that my former boss is open to possibly running for President in 2008! That would be great! I know that many people do not care for the former speaker, but I admire and respect this man. After spending time with him and his staff, getting to know him better, I grew to respect the wisdom and knowledge this man possesses.

2008 will prove to be interesting, no doubt. But, for now, let’s just enjoy 2005.
