When to they leave? Soon. So soon. TOO soon! This was out last weekend together in DC, and so I did what a good friend does – threw them an epic going away party on Saturday night.
The food preparations were thorough and included most of our favorite things, including but not limited to: Chinese dumplings, chips and salsa, cheese (so much cheese), and a huge chocolate cake with more espresso buttercream than you thought possible. The festivities started at 7, and by 8 my little apartment was quite full of all the people I know and like, because who can miss a Bon Voyage party for 6x6 and LLC?!?!
And actually, while we’re having this talk, newer readers may not know the root of these two lovely ladies' blog names.

Ok enough reminiscing. I will be profoundly sad when I return from California after Christmas and they are not here, but that day is not today.

The party was the main event of the weekend, but I also did some things on Sunday. And by some, I mean brunch, and going to see The Hobbit. My LOTR love means that I am preconditioned to love The Hobbit as well, but objectively/realistically the reviews are true – it is not very good, too long, and sometimes boring. So there you have it. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t see it. And the music alone might make it worth it!
The world will end – i.e. I will leave and never (!) see 6x6 or LLC again – (no that’s pure lies and over-dramatic but I won’t see them for a while) on Thursday morning. Until then, we are packing in as much fun as possible!
