SCK Adventures in DC: Link Roundup

Really sorry that I have been failing miserably at staying on schedule here. A lot of things have been going on but I’m excited to get back on track!

Why make new memories when you can look back fondly on old ones? Just kidding, keep making new memories, folks, you won’t regret it in the long run.

BUT, I thought it might be handy to have one big post here with the blogs from Karen & Christine‘s recent visit to DC since we all blogged about the trip. Everyone has different photos and perspectives, and I think it’s fun to see what we remembered and wrote down about each day.

Starr: Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 (just me, don’t get too excited)
Christine: Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 (she includes a lot of great, hilarious, personal details in her posts)
Karen: All 3 Days (she’s the real-deal photographer in our group, so be ready for great photos!)

Relive the memories with me, friends!

SCK Adventures: Memorials & Memories (Day 4)

(Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3)

When Sunday rolled in, we had our best weather yet. It was sunny, it was warm, the weather was essentially perfect. It made it all the more sad to me that I couldn’t spend the entire beautiful day with my rays of California sunshine.

TL;DR Farm-to-belly brunch, memorial walk, and… saying goodbye to Karen and Christine

SCK Adventures: Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out? (Day 3)

(Day 1 | Day 2)

When the weekend rolled in, we also got: (1) nicer weather and (2) HELLA tourists. Since Christine and Karen had basically been scarred by the crowds at the Air & Space Museum, we kept it low-key and opted to not actually visit the Cherry Blossom Festival during peak.

TL;DR Taipei in Maryland, sweets tour of Georgetown, speakeasy uneasiness, AYCE KBBQ & shabu

(Also, I don’t have many photos from Saturday, so sorry!)

SCK Adventures: Nomz, Museums, and Late Nights (Day 2)

(Day 1)

Day 2 is probably the morning that we woke up most refreshed after getting the most amount of sleep during this SCK adventure. This is because of what happened at the end of Day 2, but we’ll get to that.

TL;DR We focus a lot on food today, kicking off with fried food galore, doing some museum hopping in the afternoon, and then going out for a night on the town with friends before eating a late night meal at 4 AM.

SCK Adventures: Karen & Christine Take on DC (Day 1)

Once upon a time, there was a bored girl recovering from the fall of a mystical blogging platform called Xanga. She noticed that had a “Suggested blogs” feature, through which she found two lovely California girls named Christine and Karen. After months and months of chatting online, it was decided that they would visit me and see DC. Plane tickets were purchased, air mattresses were inflated…

This weekend, they learned that I am, indeed, too lazy to pull off an elaborate catfish plan, hurray! We had a JAM-PACKED weekend, so let’s get straight to it!

TL;DR – I didn’t catfish my new friends, exploring Union Station and Shake Shack, silly faces at the National Postal Museum, mind-blowing beauty at the Library of Congress, a dreary pre-tourist mob view of the cherry blossoms, and a bar themed after a US president because DC.
