So I’ve realized that there’s no way I can post such a long blog on Sundays! At least not for right now. So my apologies to the both of you reading this. There has to be at least two of you right? 🙂
This weekend was crazy busy since my time in DC is coming to an end. We had planned on hiking Old Rag in Shenandoah (an 8 hour hike) on Sunday. Shenandoah is one of my favorite places to be, but so far I’ve only gone tubing and wanted to check out the awesome trails that they have! Our plans changed when we found INCREDIBLE Sugarland tickets. That was an easy decision to make:) Instead of Old Rag, we chose a shorter hike in Great Falls, Maryland. Billy Goat Trail was rough and rocky, but I recommend it to anyone looking for something a little more challenging than a nature walk. The views of the Potomac were spectacular and it was so nice to sit out on a ledge and enjoy our clean chicken sandwiches:)
Acting as the geniuses that we are, my aunt and I decided to visit Cracker Barrel and eat back all the calories that we had burned rock scrambling! I definitely wanted to treat myself, but it was hard to go completely nuts. I had multi-grain pancakes, scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, grits, and REAL BUTTER AND SYRUP. I’ll admit, sometimes I do miss refined sugar and cream:) After we hefted ourselves from our table, we headed on over to Sugarland!!
The concert was absolutely amazing! They are one of my favorite bands and it was such a surprise to get to see them:) I’ll post some pictures later tonight!
