ALU Dining Out.

Tuesday we had the dining out for Jacob's ALU class, I like dining outs because we get to dress up all fancy. Even though by the end of this one I was dying because the sequins of my dress were cutting my underarms all up, ouch! 

I made sure to get a picture with all the guys we have grown closest to while being here, Ryan, Farmer, and Georges. I sure am going to miss hanging out with them when we leave in a month!

Jacob and I woke up on Easter Sunday and attended church with our friend George. Afterwards we went and grabbed some lunch, and then took a super long nap! When we finally woke up we went for a drive, took some pictures (aren't the "wood fairies" in the last picture beautiful?), and then went to I Hop, so delicious.

We had a great relaxing Easter, how was yours?

Last weekend Jacob and I headed to Washington DC to attend The Cherry Blossom Festival! And to our surprise, the Cherry Blossom trees haven't bloomed yet :( what a bummer! We made the best of it though. We went and saw the Iwo Jima Memorial, which is just absolutely amazing. Then we drove by the Arlington Cemetary where thousands of soldiers have been buried, may they rest in peace.

After that we headed to see the Lincoln Memorial! On our walk there we got to take some pictures with the Washington Monument (which is still under construction). And we got to see the capital in the distance behind the Monument, it was gorgeous. We finally reached Lincoln and it was everything I imagined it would be. It was definitely a childhood dream come true! And I was so glad to see it at night time because I felt like it has much more of a WOW factor at night with the light shining up on him.

After checking that out we sat on the steps to the Lincoln Memorial in front of the Reflection Pool and watched the Cherry Blossom Festival Firework show from the distance. It was perfect. It was extremely cold though, Jacob insisted that I not only wear my coat but that I also wear his. Haha, he's so perfect and crazy. I felt so bad for him cause I know he was freezing but there was no way talking him out of it. 

On our trek back to the car we stopped at the World War II Memorial, which is the most beautiful memorial I've ever seen, the fountain and wreaths are amazing. And of course we found the Arkansas wreath!

After that we ran into some trees with white lights, and in my book you can never go wrong with white lights! And a cute little cobblestone road. We are hoping to make it back to DC in order to actually get to see all the Cherry Blossom Trees bloomed, to tour the capital, and to see the other memorials that we missed this time around.

Jacob took me out to dinner in Richmond on Tuesday, and before we went to eat we went exploring. It was a beautiful day, I was so excited to wear shorts! After it cooled down I threw on one of my new favorite sweatshirts Jacob found for me at Goodwill. (I absolutely love Montana and Wyoming).

I'm completely obsessed with these booties I practically live in them. I found them in the Clearance section at Anthropologie while we were in Washington DC. They were marked down to $50 and they were my size! A match made in heaven! 

We are headed back to DC this weekend to attend The Cherry Blossom Festival. I've been looking forward to going ever since I heard about it the first time we were in DC. And this Saturday they are having a firework show for the festival! We will definitely be taking tons of pictures! We also still have a lot of other things to see like the Lincoln Memorial, WWII Memorial, the capital, etc. It's going to be a busy yet wonderful weekend, I hope this weather decides to stick around for it!
