National Air and Space Museum – The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center

Yesterday was a little bit of a dreary rainy day, so boyf and I headed over to The National Air & Space Museum – The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. This place is a few miles from where I live, has been open since 2003 and I have never made it over there! Kind of sad if you ask me. What is sadder is that I have lived in Northern Va my whole life and haven’t been up the National Monument, but that’s another story which will be hopefully dealt with this Spring!

Anywho, boyf and I trekked over to the Udvar Hazy Center yesterday to check it out. Boyf loves this kind of stuff. Loves to read every single thing. And when I say that, I mean HE READS EVERY SINGLE THING. Most of the time, I think this is super cute, sometimes I get bored easily, but for the most part yesterday I was entertained. There is so much to look at in this huge airport and space hanger. There are thousands of aviation and space artifacts that cannot be exhibited on the National Mall Air & Space Museum location, and its all at Udvar Hazy. Its all everything that was too big for the downtown location!

A quick little Starbucks run before our afternoon at the museum:

Bud Light Plane:

Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird- It flew from LA to DC in 1 hour and 4 minutes. SUPER fast! Its actually the fastest jet in the whole world.

The space shuttle Enterprise is the centerpiece of the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar

Rolex is a sponsor, and there are random Rolex clocks all over the place. I thought it was kind of weird, but whatever works!

Me in front of the Blackbird

Fun with space helmets in the gift shop!

The Boeing B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay

Boyf reading EVERYTHING! :)

Fun little Saturday!

Whats For Lunch: Great Wraps

At Tysons Corner Center today, post lax game, MB and I hit up Great Wraps in the food court. I got the Hummus Veggie Wrap – Hummus, Pepper Jack cheese, Romaine, banana peppers, onions, cucumbers, red peppers, and sprouts. Very yummy! Totally hit the spot. Perfect for a post game meal.


I am sad I wasn’t able to make it over to the DC Blogger Meet up down in Georgetown. I hope everyone there had fun, and I hope everyone does it again soon, because I want to meet everyone!

You’re Welcome America: A Final Night with George W. Bush

Did you watch this last night?! If you didn’t you are totally missing out! Boyf and I made a special trip into the city to visit some of his friends, but also to be able to catch this show. I was so pumped when I learned we were going to be able to see it. (I don’t have HBO) It was the live Broadway show which was shown on HBO last night. It was so good. An hour and a half long, pretty much a one man show of Will Ferrell doing what he does best: Making me laugh! I hope you got to see it! If you did see it, what were your thoughts? If you love Bush or hate him, I hope everyone was able to enjoy Ferrell’s show!
