Hidden Talent

This post is going to be one big 'ole pat on my back. By me. Yep. If this isn't egomania I don't know what is.

I am excellent with babies and dogs. They seem to be drawn to me. I've said this for years but it became apparent tonight when it was pointed out by two friends whose babies couldn't get enough of me. Tonight was basically my first time meeting one of them and I have had very little interaction with the other. (sorry for the vagueness, I don't know if their moms want their names on the internetz)

Babies and dogs love me, which is great, except that without a man I don't really see myself having either of them in my future. Luckily I love them back, probably because I don't mind making an utter fool of myself to get a smile. Sometimes babies and dogs are better company than adults. That was not the case for tonight, the adult company were some of my favorite and oldest friends. 

I guess this strange super power is a wonderful thing because until I have my own I don't mind being a favorite adopted aunt. It thrills me to hear my friends refer to me as Aunt Rachel. Their babies are my babies. 

Friends, thanks for having such amazing babies.

Happy Valentines Day, No One

A few girlfriends and I were talking the other day and we decided how to simplify dating. You read for this?

Wear your qualifications/characteristics on a shirt. Yeah. Every single (available emotionally, mentally, and physically) person would wear their shirt proudly. Uh huh, yeah, wouldn't it be nice?

My shirt would read:

debt free
movie lover
humorous (that is, if you love Arrested Development and 30 Rock)
travel lover who actually travels
phenomenal aunt
decent cooker
will be totally cool with you having your boys camping trip (as long as you don't invite me)

To name a few. As for negative qualities, those would have to be discovered after a few dates.

I Dare You to Not Grin

I have nothing else to say other than that these videos all make me smile a lot. Like so much. I hope you enjoy them as I have!

What talent! Ingenuity! FUN! 
I think I'll have to add this to my file of things to look at when I'm having a personal rainy day.

Even people who aren't into animals have to laugh at this hilarity - come on!

Awesome. Just pure awesomeness.

This is just a very heart happy thing, isn't it?

The Wisdom of Calvin and Hobbes

If I sat down and counted how much time I waste everyday I would probably be pretty ashamed. Here's hoping I can be mindful of infinity, or in other words, eternity.

Love Where You Live

This DC of mine is just utterly fabulous. There are little lovelies all over the city that can be easily overlooked if you buy open your eyes.

See Mr. Lincoln here? He's in the Capitol building and there are 2 things missing on him...know what they are?

Marketing on the floor of the metro - I adore. You'd be surprised how many anti government campaigns are found in and around the metro.

Just one of those little lovelies found on the side of a residence.

Is this the (literal) sign I need to commit to vegetarianism?!?

Mmmm...tulips in Eastern Market. My second favorite flower!

I want the upper left one

There is always a new corner to discover, a new neighborhood to explore, a cupcake bakery to try out, and a bike path to ride. Love where you live!
