Good Eats {Travels}: Shake Shack

Soooo this week was intense.  I took 57 8th graders to Washington DC.  Well, me and 8 other chaperones.  Planning this trip has been my life for the past few months, so I was thrilled it was a success!  I am also thrilled that it is over so that I can have my life back.

It was a blast to be in my old stomping grounds with my students.  We museum and monument hopped, saw Shear Madness, got stuck in a monsoon,  went to Arlington National Cemetery, took a lot of pictures of girls doing splits, stayed up late, spoke in hashtags, and ate a lot of junk food.  I laughed so hard I almost peed myself, on more than one occasion. I bonded with some awesome kids.

I learned that if you hand 14 year olds $10 at a rest stop, they will buy  venti Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappacinos and ice cream cones and call it dinner.  God, was I happy to hand them off to their parents.  I was exhausted.  It was reminiscent of the days when I had a 4 week old.  I shudder at the thought.

I digress… In the midst of the madness, just as we were leaving the International Spy Museum, I snuck into the F Street Shake Shack for a little treat before I needed to spend 5 hours on a bus with shrieking middle schoolers.  Let’s just call this a little stress-eating mid day snack. I had the Beltway Blonde concrete.  It’s vanilla custard topped with cheesecake blondie pieces, bananas and salted caramel sauce.  Best. ice cream. ever.  Holy cow.  I would drive 4 hours for that any day.  I also split some fries with one of my teacher friends.  Also super delicious.

Every moment of those three days was so full I didn’t even have a second to talk to my husband or FaceTime with the bubba.  I missed that baby so much…and Matt, too.  As soon as I got home on Wednesday night, I ran into Connor’s room picked him up and just rocked him for 20 minutes.  Baby snuggles are my drug.  What will I do when he won’t snuggle with me anymore???  Never mind, I can’t even think about it.

Now, pardon me while I go sleep for the rest of the weekend.  Oh wait, my one year old might not let that happen…
