Living in the DMV

Living in the DMV (aka Delmarva) (aka DC, MD, VA) is such a fun place to be.  Last year at this time my man was working in DC, and invited me and our youngest daughter down for dinner.  It was the Tuesday before Halloween.  After dinner we walked to the 17th Street High Heel Race, and we had a blast.  Well fast forward to today, and it's once again the Tuesday before Halloween.  My man is down in Florida working, but our baby girl and I decided that last year was so much fun that we had to go down to Washington for the 29th annual 17th Street High Heel Race.  And I'm happy to report that we were not disappointed with our decision.  I drove down, parked for $8.00 in public parking (can this qualify as a cheap date?) at 21street and M street, and then we walked up to 17th street.  Meryl Streep, Michael Jackson, Joan Crawford, Dolly Parton, Julia Roberts, (just to name a few) were there too.

My best friends daughter came with us, and I'm happy that we are close enough to DC to hop in the car, and have a fun evening with very little cost.

It's nothing to do with quilting, but I did get some sewing time today before we left for the parade.

Happy piecing, happy sewing,

Sheila I'm pretty sure it stands for DC, MD, Va? Could be wrong? Google it! Lol! Love Michael Jackson! But I would be searching for Elvis, you know, because I'm pretty sure he's alive too and would a been there! Lol!
