Bright and early Friday morning I arrived at the Louisville airport.. to this. I had already been in line 10 minutes when I snapped this, it had moved about 6 metres. This is not normal for the ville, so I was freaking out. Thankfully, they threw out the rule book and got us all through quite quickly.
I don't know if I've mentioned it, but I'm not the best flyer. I used to be just dandy, but as I get older, I get more anxious. I can block out most of it, but turbulence makes me cry / laugh like a maniac. It's been awhile since I had flown by myself so I was nervous. I'm also kind of afraid of heights. But for some reason, when the plane is flying smoothly and there are no bumps, there is nothing more peaceful to me than looking out the window. I have no idea why, I just love it. I really wish I could have had my phone on flying into DC - you saw all the monuments and it was just a gorgeous day.
My flight arrived super early, so I got some chocolate milk and settled into a rocking chair to read a book. I love watching the planes take off and land, they look so smooth and not bumpy at all, I try and remember that when I'm in the plane.
After we all found each other and had to pay for a full day of parking even though Tracy was only in the lot for like 12 minutes, we headed out to get some fabulous food with the weirdest waiter ever. I highly recommend Busboys and Poets (they sell books!) if you're in the area, especially if you're vegetarian, gluten free or like organic food.
I might be super touristy here, but the train station was so pretty or at least not as ugly and boring as the ones back home, so I had to snap a photo.
We headed to the expo, don't ask me why I am standing like that, and I tried to get Alyssa and Tracy to take a silly photo but instead they just laughed at me.
Because we ate a really late lunch, we ate a really late dinner (after trying to park for like half an hour), and consequently didn't get to bed until midnight or so. We woke up bright and far too early for the half marathon we willingly signed up for. Just kidding.
Start line photo.. we're already wet and we haven't even started.
Now, I'm not gonna go into the race today, if you want to read more about it, feel free to pop over to Tracy's or Alyssa's. But this is basically what we did for the rest of Saturday:
I know, exciting stuff. We ate a lot of food too, because hot damn it we deserved it. Fast forward to Sunday and we headed over to Georgetown for some cupcakes and met up with Carly for brunch.
You might wonder why there are pancakes between Tracy and I. Because we shared them. The waiter did not like that I ordered 2 breakfasts. You want eggs and pancakes? Are you sure? Yes I'm sure, judgey mcjudgerson.
After that, we said our goodbyes. Not before snapping some photos as we drove by the monuments and of course it was a freaking beautiful day.
I'm still recovering from all the gluten I ate, but it was well worth it. I feel like the photos don't show how absolutely fabulous a weekend it was, and it was so fun to meet Tracy & Carly and see Alyssa again. Can't wait for the next one!
Have you ever gone on a runcation? Or to DC?
