Countdown to Italy: 11 Days

What I’d like to do before my departure:

  • Hit up the Basin Street Lounge and listen to some live jazz again
  • Conduct another rap episode (Kiesha, Alan, and Joseph — I have a new song!)
  • Spend a whole day in DC
  • Have a photoshoot in DC with my new 50mm lens (thank you, Ma! :)
  • Eat at Ohhs & Ahhs OR Ben’s
  • Order a venti-sized Peppermint White Mocha (if still available)
  • Visit the Shrine [at least] twice for Confession and Mass
  • Play more games of Cranium OR even Buzzword with the “Regs”
  • Go to Adoration
  • Attend morning Mass at StC daily
  • Visit Papa
  • Visit the kids [at least] thrice
  • Visit the Belev’s at their new house in Oakton?
  • Hang out at Nat’l Harbor and order some Cakelove
  • Consume another #25 at the Pho Noodles
  • Sleepover????

Open to suggestions.
