And with Georgetown classes starting up again in a week, I need to fill my bucket as much as possible to last a while! Law school tends to leave me without quality fiancé time pretty regularly. Only slightly exaggerating when I say it feels like a long distance relationship all over again! I do a pretty good job (key word: pretty) staying rational and understanding, but probably twice a month (coughweekcough) I get a little pouty *Fingers crossed* that this is our last semester of school as a couple, ever. We have promised each other at least a few years off after this one! But, with the anticipation/dread of the semester, we have decided to do as much as possible on Saturdays and Sundays.
Last Friday, we did our favorite activity, grocery shopping. No joke. We love doing that together and we always both got so sad during the fall when we would do it alone. So, we hit up the grocery store and Chipotle and possibly Baskin Robbins (yea okay, we went to BR).
On Saturday, we had tickets to see Star Wars at 2:30 so we bummed around until it was time to leave. Which, now that we take the metro every where, needs to be incredibly early because apparently it can be a little unpredictable. I wasn't totally jazzed about seeing the new Star Wars movie, but when I saw that you could see it at the National Air and Space Museum at the IMAX I was singing a different tune. Other than being in the fifthish row and having both sore eyes and a sore head afterwards, it was amazing. I can honestly say that I can't wait for the next one.

On Sunday, we took the metro into Chinatown to run some errands and explore. We went to Loft for a return (and I quietly drooled over everything I loved) and to Allen Edmonds for Ryan to treat himself to his first pair of their shoes. It was so much fun to go with him and pick out such a big "treat yo self" item that he had been wanting and wishing for for a while. We kept walking for a while (I had no idea where we were) and stumbled upon Dolcezza. Dolcezza is a coffee and gelato place (our two loves combined) and we popped in because I had recently been introduced to Bridget's blog that morning by her SIL Amy. I remembered reading that she worked there (ps I'm a creeper) and figured we would take a chance to see if that was the one and, I mean, gelato. And low and behold, she was there! And Ryan encouraged me to introduce myself. Luckily, she is so incredibly kind and lovely and I don't think we freaked her out.
After Dolcezza, we walked our way down to Astro Doughnuts because it was on our "list" and close by. We got doughnuts to go while I talked/guilted Ryan into seeing Sisters with me before we went home. He said yes (have I mentioned how lucky I am?) and we went to Georgetown Law to drop some stuff off before making our way to the movie.
Sisters was hilarious if you love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as much as I do. But, it was also vulgar and had a no-so-great story line. But, Ryan and I both agreed that we loved the movie because it was clear that they were just two best friends having a great time making a movie together...and I also had to agree to seeing Deadpol on Valentine's Day (incredibly romantic). And with a Smoothie King right outside the theatre, we, of course, had to make one more stop before going home!

Love and buckets of happiness!
