Georgetown, DC

Hey guys! I have had such a fun start to my week! I went out to do a little grocery shopping today and when I asked Siri for directions to the nearest Target (can you tell we just moved?) I learned that there was one just 2 miles away!! I should have pre-faced this by saying we have been here three weeks and never knew we lived so close.  Anyways, I arrived at my glorious destination 5 minutes later and not only was there a Target (in the form of a 4 story building I might add) but also an Anthropologie, a Neiman Marcus Last Call, and a bunch of unique boutiques and restaurants! I had so much fun exploring (I even took Stephen back after he finished work to check it out) especially since I am in the process of decorating our little apartment and am in a constant search for fun/unique shops. Anyways...more about decorating later.  A couple weekends ago, Stephen and I ventured out to Georgetown (a quaint street of shops and restaurants in DC) on our own and had a blast!  It is seriously such a cool place to visit, and I feel so lucky that we are so close!  Here is just a glimpse of some of the things we did! Hopefully next time I will be more diligent in documenting our adventures :)

Walking to the Metro!
Pretty Flowers

If you know me, you know I love this place so I had to sneak a quick picture before we walked in :)
We ate at this fun restaurant called Mr. Smith's for lunch (c/o my Father-in-law:) It was delicious!

Our Starter
Stephen's Corned Beef Sandwich...Highly Recommended!!

Father's Day

Happy belated Father's Day to all the dad's out there! My sweet family drove up from NC this past weekend to hang out with Stephen and I, and to do some shopping downtown.  I loved being able to see my Dad! After living in Utah for so long it's nice to be within driving distance!! I am grateful for my awesome family and I am so excited to spend more time with them! Love you guys!!

Happy Father's Day Dad! You are so wonderful! Thanks for all you do!!
My lovely Mother
My youngest brother Michael

The boys :)
And of course a very Happy Father's Day to my husband Stephen!  Who may not be a father (in the literal sense)  but is still my support and rock!

Summer Lovin'!

Hey guys! It's been a crazy past few weeks in the Cornelius household. We finally moved from Utah to Virginia (via a cross-country road trip) and have started to settle into our new home! We have had some fun experiences already (Downtown DC!!) and I can't wait to share all of the pictures with you! First, I know I still owe you the last few shots from London and I promise they are coming! For now, here are some snap shots from our farewell BBQ hosted by Mark and Cheri! It was so bitter sweet(we are going to miss everyone tons...and already do!) but we are hoping that we will get lots of visitors while we live here (hint hint....).

This amazing dish was made by Megan (my sister in-law who is expecting a little boy!) So yummy!!

Such a lovely backyard
