I made it back! Were you starting to wonder if I survived my trip north? I wanted to post sooner, but I've been going since the minute I got back on Sunday. I had some health issues come up while in DC, but hopefully will be seeing a doctor this week. In the meantime, I know you're all dying to hear about my trip. This was the plan:
Friday: leave work at three, drive 8 hours to Woodstock, VA, sleep.
Saturday: leave Woodstock at 7, drive 2 hours to Vienna, VA, take the metro 30 minutes into DC. Meet Suzanne Collins, make her our new BFF, see some sites, eat dinner with some book bloggers, and spend the night with my cousin.
Sunday: Breakfast with my cousin, more site-seeing, then 10 hour drive back to Chattanooga/Ringgold.
Here's what really happened, with pictures:
Friday: leave work at 3, go to Walmart to pick up the photo album from our HG shoot that we had made as a gift for Suzanne Collins. Also buy all the things I forgot to pack. Head north, but stop for a long dinner at Cracker Barrell. Realize we are now three hours behind schedule and bust a move for Woodstock. Hotel after midnight - go straight to bed.
I don't like making my posts super long, so you'll have to wait for my next one to see what happened next...Hopefully I will post again this afternoon, but I've got something pretty big going on right now that I don't want to discuss until it finalizes, but it's sucking up almost every second of my free time!
