DC Life...According to Phone Pictures

These are in a very random order, so bear with me...

Sometimes, when I walk to halls of Capitol Hill...I stumble upon "big deals" offices and get really excited that I am in the middle of all the action! 

Michele Bachmann

Sometimes, people who work in the Capitol need a reminder of how elevators work....

I'm a REALLY big finance nerd, and get really excited about strange things related to finance...

Like the oldest bank of Washington!

I may or may not have looked like a creeper taking this picture...considering the door right next to the name plate was opened and his assistant could definitely see me!

We went to the White House, which is right next to the Treasury building. Guess who we saw walking from the White House to the Treasury? Oh just the Secretary of Treasury himself: Mr. Tim Geithner! I definitely showed my true finance nerd colors when nobody in my group knew who he was except me...

Some might ask, "How did you forget to dedicate an entire post to your tour of the White House?!?!"

...Well, it's very simple: It was an absolutely forgettable experience. My least favorite tour so far. Very boring...didn't get to see much...just didn't live up to all the hype, BUT we did get to see the President's dog Bo!

What DID live up to the hype was Georgetown's Sprinkles Cupcakes! We were running an errand and ended up right next door to the cupcake joint. Of course we looked up the special word on Facebook and got the last TWO free cupcakes!! It was a GREAT day in Georgetown!!

So some guy gave us this flyer the day of the State of the Union....

Hip Hop Caucus??!!? I REALLLLLY wanted to tune in to BET and see all the coverage, but unfortunately we didn't have it!
