About Me

My photo
I love red velvet cake, glitter, music, car washes, and nail polish. I am a southern belle with a hint of cajun class. Starting this blog was a challenge to do something I WANTED to do not because I HAD to.

Trip to the Nation's capital!

Washington DC was fabulous!...well except for the weather.  This southern gal was freezing! We toured the American History Museum and the Natural History Museum.  I was blown away by the Star Spangled Banner exhibit, maybe because I have sung our national anthem many times for festivals, pageants, ball games.  My breath was literally taken away when I saw the original (star spangled banner) flag.  It was gorgeous.  Unfortunately photos were not allowed.  Enjoy the pictures from the tour.  It was like I revisited an 8th grade field trip...although Bunkie Middle never took us to DC!
