The Sunday Post #63 (3.15.15)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. I'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey. 

This week I met up with my mom in Washington DC - she lives in North Carolina and I live in New York, so it's pretty central for us both. We were supposed to be walking the 1/2 marathon, but because of the rain, we decided to not do the race and just sight-see instead. We did this last year, too, though we did walk the race last year! This time around, we went to two different museums - the Newseum and a quilt exhibit at the Daughters of the Revolution Museum as well as going over to the Lincoln Memorial, which I haven't been to in many, many years. We found a great tea shop and stopped by there both Friday night after dinner and again Saturday for lunch - Mom and I are both big tea drinkers! It was a fun weekend and I just love walking around DC!

Have a great week everyone!!!
