I fail at taking pictures of myself.

This weekend was a blast! I left work a little bit early on Friday so I could get my weekend started off. I went to dinner with a friend at Roti and then roamed around Union Station with a group of girls from my school. We ended up getting cupcakes from Crumbs, which were delicious!

CBS news
I got the Peanut Butter Cup cupcake. The cupcakes were way bigger than at Georgetown Cupcakes. I would say that Georgetown has better cake because Crumbs' cake was a little dry. But Crumbs' frosting was AMAZING! 

On Saturday, I woke up early (like I do every day) and went for a run around the mall. I wanted to make it to the Reflecting Pool, since it finally got refilled!

I tried taking a picture of myself in front of the pool, but I failed miserably. 

This was the best one, even though there is a random little kid in the background. Just ignore him haha. The rest of the ones I tried to take had my finger in the way, were blurry, or didn't have me in them. I never realized how hard it was to take a picture of myself on my phone! 

The metro near my apartment was down this weekend, so my friends and I walked over 2 miles to the National Geographic Museum because they were having free admission and a festival! Although it took us an hour to walk there and over an hour wait in line, it was totally worth it! 

We went to see the 1001 Inventions Exhibit, but I ended up liking the Titanic Exhibit more. The top photo says "For every two saved, four perished." It was really sad to think about. And the bottom photo is a replica of the Titanic at the bottom of the ocean. 

After getting dinner and then having to find our way back to the apartment in the pouring rain, we went back out later to find a place to watch the TCU game! The first place we went to couldn't get the game on, but the second place could. Unfortunately, the second bar didn't want to let me in because they were having a private party and I'm underage. But we decided to ask the host of the party if I could stay and he let me! It never hurts to ask. 

We met some TCU alum at the bar, who were all really nice! And TCU won! It was a great game- wish I could have been there, but it was still awesome to watch from here. 

Did your favorite college football team win this weekend?
Can you take good pictures of yourself on your phone? I obviously can't... 


  1. Mariah,

    The picture of you near the reflecting pool looks like you are balancing that boy on your shoulder :) Your arms are too short for self potraits - I have long ones so I don't have a problem with that! Glad you had a very full & fun weekend! Go TCU! Everyone is raving about the new football stadium. Love & miss ya ~ Aunt Denise

  2. Wow, I wish I was in Washington DC having the chance to see all these wonderful things. The cupcake looks delicious and now I want one. I might have a big problem with my two daughter's football teams. TCU is ranked #16 and Arizona and is ranked #24. I hope they both keep winning, but don't have to play each other in any bowl games.

  3. all these cupcake pictures are giving me cravings!
