This morning (and last night, since Ross had to work the early shift this morning) we had to say goodbye to two of our very good friends - Lauren and Chris.
Lauren is moving back to DC with her family and Chris is hitting the road to go on a band tour with Tom Evanchuck and the Old Money. Who knows - maybe they will make it big?!?!?
A huge congratulations to Lauren who successfully defended her thesis on Friday and is now officially a Master! She'll formally graduate with her Masters in Geography with me in December, but from a distance.
We went to the Copper Hog to celebrate!
LOVE Brown Ales.
And the next night we continued to celebrate with a Big Mama Margarita from Jalapenos. Holy Mole these things knock you on your ass! They are so strong - 32oz for $6.50 and that's
more than all you need for the night. =)
And now Lauren and Chris have hit the road and are on a cross-country adventure. They are planning stops at Glacier, Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, Chicago, Cleveland and then to DC. But their first stop was my house for breakfast!!!!
I decided to slice up the brioche and get my French Toast on!
So simple - a beaten egg, some cinnamon, and homemade bread! LOVE our griddle.
Because of the braid these were more like french toast sticks in a way - and they were a treat!
So delicious slathered in REAL maple syrup. I don't mess around.
Farewell to Chris and Lauren - safe travels. We will hopefully catch up with them in November when the band is going to be playing in Seattle!
