Bring on the Luck!

I've found two four leaf clovers in one week. I wonder what that means? I'll let you know when I find out.

My New Favorite TV Show

Have you seen the new series Treme yet? So far I am obsessed with it. Just watch the trailer and you will understand why. It is from the creators of The Wire, another show that I really enjoy, and it has the same level of awesome character development, complex storytelling, and great acting as that celebrated series.

If you don't have HBO (I didn't either until my wonderful landlords decided to share their cable) you can come over to our house and watch it with us... or at least rent it when it comes out on video ;).

I have half a mind to pick up the trumpet. But my landlord probably wouldn't appreciate that...

A very special visitor!

My wonderful little sister took a break from studying this weekend and flew in to spend the weekend with me. Since my husband was in Denver for a conference, we felt free to engage in plenty of girly activities. We went shopping, of course, and visited Eastern Market. But you would be proud of us for hiking 10 miles on Saturday!

We had dinner at Eatonville, a whimsical and hip restaurant near U street devoted the life and works of Zora Neale Hurston (one my my favorite authors). It seemed fitting since both my sister and I attended undergrad in the South and have a southern Granny who cooks up a storm every time we visit. There has been a lot of buzz about Eatonville, but it definitely lived up to my expectations.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!! I've been smiling all day even though it's a Monday.
