The Allergy I Love The Most

Sunday before last I went on an impromptu vacation to visit Ad in Shepherdstown, WV for a few days! Sars came to town to pick me up and we started our journey to the eastern panhandle!

When we got to Shepherdstown we saw this crocheted bear: So the next day we ran off to DC and visited the Natural History Museum:

...and learned a few things like:

While in DC, we went to Chinatown and ate sushi & drank mojitos... kinda ironic, huh?

We also walked around and shopped:

I also got a delicious cupcake from the Red Velvet Cupcakery! It was a black velvet cupcake with chocolate buttercream and crystalized violet petals sprinkled on top!

We then made our way back to Shepherdstown. This is Ad's door:

Here are some sugary grapes I got to add to Ad's rumtopf (last pic)! Here is what Wikipedia has to say about rumtopf.

The time I spent in Shepherdstown/DC, my allergies progressively got worse and worse. I sneezed constantly, my head hurt, my nosed drained, and my sinuses ached! I had never had such a severe reaction to a place. So we said that I was allergic to Ad's house, which was sad cause I love Ad! Sars and I left that Tuesday, and I started having a fever on the car ride home... not fun. That didn't stop us from eating at the Black Bear in Morganhole on our way back! I can blame it on that town that started me having the fever! I got all jittery just being back there!

My time with my 2 BFFs was totally fun and I would visit Ad anytime, even though I am allergic!

I'm so jealous of your DC trip! I haven't been there in a few years and I've been wanting to go back all year!

Looks like a nice trip, especially the cupcake and mojito. I hate allergies though. I get really allergic in certain places.
