A Birthday/House Warming Weekend

Last Friday DC was having some CRAZY weather. Josh and I had first planned to go eat Indian food and then go to the movies, but with the torrential rain and extreme wind we vetoed that plan. Instead, we ordered Indian food to go and ate at his place. We had an Indian feast with kebabs, lamb vindaloo, and chicken tikka masala!
So much food!

After stuffing our faces we watched a movie...and like always, Josh watched it and I slept.

The next morning we woke up at 7am to make it to the 8am CrossFit WOD. This workout was called "Whitten" and was in honor of a fallen soldier. 

Army Captain Dan Whitten, 28, of Grimes, Iowa, assigned to the 1st Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, based out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina, died February 2, 2010, when enemy forces in Zabul, Afghanistan, attacked his vehicle with an improvised explosive device. Whitten is survived by his wife, Starr Whitten, his mother, Jill Whitten, his father, Dan Whitten, and his sister, U.S. Army Captain Sarah Whitten.
“Whitten”
5 rounds
22 KB Swings (2/1.5)
22 Box Jumps (24/20)
Run 400m
22 Burpees
22 Wall Balls (20/14, 10’ target)



Like I have mentioned before, Saturday WODs are always much longer than weekday ones. This Saturday's was the longest WOD yet. It took me 58 minutes to finish and Josh and I both were exhausted when it was over.  I used a 26 pound KB, and a 12 pound wall ball. 

After CF Josh and I had breakfast, and then we both showered and cleaned up. After that WOD I needed it. We ran a few errands and then we went to my friend Victoria's house for her Birthday Party. It was 60's Beach themed, and the decorations were precious. The food, company, and beer selections were great too!
Sweet VP, The Birthday Girl!


Josh and I stayed at Victoria's for about an hour, and then we made our way over to our second party of the night, Emily & Phil's Housewarming Party. As I mentioned here, E&P recently purchased the most precious place in Glover Park. At the party Phil did an excellent job grilling fajitas, and Emily (who is the best baker and cook ever) had the most tantalizing food spread I have ever seen. We spent the rest of the night at their place enjoying the wonderful weather, company, food, and atmosphere. The crazy storms the night before caused temperatures to drop, and since then the DC area has experienced evenings in the low 70s.

The next morning Josh and I went to church, and then Alycyn, Lanie, JBT and I spent the rest of the afternoon at Josh's pool. I had been craving French Onion Soup from Cheesetique, which I mentioned in my blog last week, ALL DAY. Josh got home from the Nats game at about 6, and he was sweet and indulged my craving. He and I went to Cheesetique for dinner, and shared two bottles of wine, a cheese board, a caprice salad, four cheese mac-n-cheese, and FRENCH ONION SOUP. It was the perfect evening, and the perfect end to another fabulous weekend.

Finally, THANK YOU to everyone who generously donated to my sponsorship page for the CrossFit For Hope Event this Saturday. I know all of the children at St. Jude will be so appreciative, and I am so thankful for all of the kind people in my life. I am looking forward to the WOD this weekend. Full Recap on Monday!!!!

Happy Thursday!
