Yay! I booked the trip tonight, finally. I was waiting to get my new American Airlines credit card in the mail so I could get the points for using it and buying this trip. I am so psyched to get airline miles for using the card. Whoot. Anyway, we are flying Northwest (Which I hate, but was the cheapest and best flight times) and we are staying at a place I randomly selected called Hotel Palomar.
Just was thinking that I have never even said where we are going.....Washington D.C.! I can't wait. There is so much to see there and I have never been. Kurt has been once, but he was only 2 years old, so I am pretty sure it will all be new to him too. I know we will not get to see everything in the short time we will be there, but it will be a nice getaway, and a great experience. My number one place to see is the Supreme Court, so we will have to do that first thing on Friday since they are not open the weekend. Oh, we are leaving Thursday the 31st after work and coming back that Sunday night......I am trying to set up a couple dinners with people while we are there.....Have already talked to Angel and her husband husband and will see them whenever she has open, and I am hoping that Amanda and Jason have some free time too?? :). Let me know Amanda! I told Kurt that we were going to be meeting up with friends of mine, and he was like, which ones? I could not tell him though because I don't know if he knows where everyone lives or not so he will have to be surprised, hehe.
OK, so RIGHT after I buy a phone without a camera, the courts approve the use of camera phones by lawyers. Cmon. It totally figures. So, Kurt was psyched because this means he can get the iPhone. So, we went tonight and bought it for him and I set it all up online. It is a really kewl phone. I decided to send my back (I was still under my 30 day return policy) and go get it. I mean, it will save us money each month (our current data plans on our phones are more than the Apple data plan), and the internet quality is spectacular. Seriously. I feel kinda like Rebecca with phone ADD though, I have never returned a phone before just to get another one I like more.....
Bought this really kewl ring on eBay. I have not bought any jewelry in FOREVER, and saw this ring and thought it was really different. Got it today, and it is gorgeous on. I love it. And I got an amazing deal on it, since it was on eBay. eBay rocks for jewelry.
I don't remember if I posted about this before or not, but I found out that my friend, Julia, my bestest friend from law school, is moving to California with her fiance! I don't know all the details yet, but I think it will be really good for her, even though she is leaving me and all! :). Kurt said it is just more of a reason for us to take trips out there, so that made me feel better. They move as soon as April, so BEFORE the wedding. Crazy. Hopefully, we can coordinate dinner soon, so I can talk to her about it. I should be more upset, but I am just really happy that she is happy about it.
Went to my first orthodontist appointment today. I know, I know. Call me vain. Do it right now. I feel like it today. But. After they took pictures of my teeth, I can SEE that they are moving. And I don't want it to continue. I should have never lost of retainer from high school and stopped wearing it, but I can't go back in time and change that so I need to be proactive about it. When I was telling Kurt how screwed up my teeth are, he actually rolled his eyes at me and said "Lori, your teeth look great...." They were really nice. I don't need actual braces. On one side of my mouth, in the back, I have a very slight underbite. So, they are first going to quickly correct that (4-6 weeks) with a couples braces and rubber bands in the back. Then, after that, I will get the Invisalign. Should have that for a year of less, then get the permanent night retainer, and be done. It's for sure not cheap, which sucks, but you know what? If I want to be vain about this, I am going to be. I get complimented on my teeth and smile all the time, and I really don't want to lose that part of me. It's seriously my favorite feature. So, Monday I go in for step one of the transformation nobody else will notice, LOL.
Anyway, this is long, so I am going to close here. And Emily, I am waiting for a Vegas post and am not being patient about it! Kidding. But please. Details! ;).
