WONDERFUL WASHINGTON (Part one)


Hey guys!
Instead of a Wonderful Wednesday, I thought I would share some photos from my trip to Washington!
It is a mega post.....please enjoy!

DAY ONE
Lincoln's Pancakes.....
FORESCORE AND 3 PANCAKES AGO.......

I did not have "scrapple".....
I believe it is either scrambled apple or scraps of something....
either way....no thank you.....
After our p'cakes we went to the American History Museum.
Just checking to see what these guys are looking at....

Julia Childs Kitchen!!!!
Me and Julia down by the Smithsonian
yup...it's a whole cabinet of take out lids!!
Archie and Edith Bunker sat HERE!
I LOVE this mural!!!!!
Love...love.....love....
What a great idea - paper recipe cards......right under your oven.....
HOW COULD IT GO WRONG???

These are also antiques......
They actually had the McDonald's sandwiches in them still!

THE HIGHLIGHT!!!??
Right???
One
One
One lonely muppet..
This is for Diana and Shauntelle......little tiny dollhouse stuff!

This made me laugh....
In this display, you, the viewer is made vote on whether:
 African Americans should be free...."yes" is the answer.....
Should the sovereignty of Native Americans be recognized "yes" is also the answer....
Should women have a new voice........THERE IS NO ANSWER!!!!
Each First Lady is able to pick a new china pattern......

This was my fave.
You go Bess!

These 'Duck Dynasty' presidential plates are dreadful.

Michelle Obama's dress......amazing in person!

Not from the First Lady collections......
Oversight? YES! ;-)
The Early Sixties......with this Bill Cosby record.......
EEEEESH......TOPICAL!!!!
I love these socks.....and I love the lady in the background judging!

KID POLOOZA!!
(ugh)
Yup. Ladies....reach for the stars....
....you can grow up to be a flight attendant on Air Force One.
Lots of Cherry Blossom merch....



SADLY for us....Most of the pop culture wing was CLOSED
YES CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!
GRRRRRRR!
TACKY TACKY TACKY lunch.
I loved it!
COME ON!!! So cool and retro!
White House

White House!
White House!!!
WHITE HOUSES??
WHIIIIIIIITE HOUSE!!!!!???
You get it, right?? EVERY BUILDING WAS WHITE!

Going to get LOADED!
Let's talk about the Subway....
HOLY CR@P......this is how far down it is........
.......it's like descending into hell!! 
SO FAAAAAR DOWN!
You can't eat or drink on the subway.......NO STARBUCKS......NOTHIN!
$65 fine. Don't ask how I know!
Yes....the carpet gives it a distinct odour......you know....like feet ....
This is how ALL the stations look - like underground war bunkers.

This box of chicken.....
Honestly, WHO CAN EAT THIS MUCH CHICKEN???
The next day we went shopping.....this was the highlight:

REALLY PEOPLE????
WORK CROCS????????????????????????????????????

Anyways, later that night we went out on a "Monuments by Moonlight"
The Capitol Building was wrapped up and under construction!
LOVED the MLK Monument. Honestly the most amazing thing.....
All his best quotes were etched into the walls around the monument....
It was so moving!
I think the lighting really made the whole thing more powerful!!
The night ended with this......
since when should a restroom and a vending machine be the SAME FREAKING SIZE????
The next day was spent at the Natural History Museum -- I KNOW how many museums can you see in one trip......the answer is 6.......

It is a big one!
BIG!

These are the Homos in the lobby.
Gosh I love a good Homo!!
This is my new ring......no.......okay...it's the hope diamond.
As in I HOPE I can 
THE DINOSAURS exhibit was closed......
Yes that was our luck on this trip!:-(
They did have the skeletons of EVERYTHING ELSE though.....
...it was kinda cool!!!!!

COOL COOOL COOOOL!!!
Right??
Then we finished our night with a cocktail....mmmmm......


Okay.....so there was 1/2 of my trip.
It was super........are you interested in the 2nd half??
In Part 2.....I go to the Spy Museum....the Air and Space Museum and pie!!!
Stay tuned NEXT week for that!!!
Have a great week!
