as we drove into hershey via the freeway, the gps still read another 2 hours. my mom was convinced i inputted the address incorrectly or the gps was just plain wrong. as she pulled out her trusty iphone and mapped our location, we bought ourselves some time by telling her the hotel was closer to gettysburg than we thought. once we reached gettysburg, our cover no longer worked.
some highlights of the trip: we spent saturday afternoon in georgetown and tried oysters at j. paul, went shopping at anthropologie and paper source (love!) and spent 45 minutes standing in line for georgetown cupcakes (we tried: coconut, chocolate birthday, chocolate 2, pumpkin and salted carmel…super scrumptious). before the ride home on sunday we made our normal stop at trader joes and then went to ikea., for some basement remodel ideas. we didn't have enough space in the car, but we got some great loot.
we had a great time and it was so nice to be together. sure, it's a long trip but as always, it's worth it.
