Partying Like A BarackStar

Even though it's January, it feels like the holiday season isn't over just yet. That's because week after next is Presidential Inauguration 2009. Family and friends are coming to town, there are events to plan and attend, food to cook and outfits to buy. I already know that whole long weekend is gonna be crazy hectic. But a lot of fun. We have friends coming in all the way from Canada to Florida. What I am looking forward to the most (um, besides a positive shift in the political leadership of our country) is getting all dressed up and going out to party! We have babysitters already lined up and I just can't wait. Seems like so long (ok, since November) since I've been out on the town. As for the actual Inauguration events (swearing-in, parade, etc.) I do plan on attending in some capacity though I have absolutely no idea how it will all work out logistically given the ONE AND A HALF MILLION PEOPLE that have the same plans. But hey, it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I'll remember for years to come so the chaos will be worth it. Right?

Actually, now that I think about it, the streets of DC on January 20th will have nothing on the everday chaos in my house, so I'm good.

We lived in No.VA 4 years ago and attended the parade. It was the first inauguration after 9/11 so security was really tight. We stood in line, with our 3 y/o for a couple of hours. Just warning.

I am so glad, now that we don't live up there any more, that we participated. Regardless of your political beliefs, any inauguration is momentous and a once in a lifetime event. Have a great time.
