This weather is unbelievable. I left Washington, DC for two days and seem to have missed spring altogether! It’s currently 92 degrees here – I can’t believe it!
I was in Houston over the weekend at my husband’s cousin’s wedding, and it really was a lot of fun. It was at the Hotel ZaZa in downtown Houston, which is a very unique hotel. The pool area was just amazing and the hotel, while very full because there was a conference going on over the weekend, was very luxurious and nice.
I have to say, the highlight of the weekend was the fact that I got to meet about 10 astronauts. The bride’s father is an astronaut and invited a bunch of his astronaut buddies to the wedding. I was a total groupie and got pictures with a bunch of them, which I will post later.
In other news, my paper-writing is going very slowly. I was on a roll and then hit a wall in the middle of last week. I’m hoping it picks back up so I can get everything done by the end of the week and start my summer vacation already, since this is the last week of classes! Hopefully that’s not too optimistic.
This week, my Thursday Tunes featured Anoushka Shankar. I also participated in Wordless Wednesdays and wrote about this week’s episode of The Tudors. I was also featured in this week’s Scene of the Blog!
