Friday, I left the office a little early to drive across the bridge to Kathy's house. We took her dog, Billy for a walk on a trail near her house, and then we went out to dinner at Bistro du Coin in Dupont with Conlon and Pamela. I had the mussels marinière with fries. After that Kathy and I had a drink at the Gibson.

Saturday, we headed out with some friends to the Around the World Embassy Tour. We decided to go to the embassies in the Van Ness area. We visited Bangladesh, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Brunei, and Pakistan. After that, we got dressed and headed off to a Kentucky Derby party. When the race was finished, we headed off to a really yummy Mexican and Salvadoran resto. After that, we headed out for a few drinks and then headed home. I was beat by the end of the day. 

This morning we slept in very late. Kathy and I grabbed dinner at Fudruckers and then I headed home. I am so sleepy but it was a great weekend.

How was your weekend?
