Lots of Pictures, Not So Many Words

We toured the Capitol Mall area (and Chinatown) with my mom yesterday.   We even did a fun (and free!) walking tour, which allowed me to take pictures while learning all sorts of hidden facts about the Federal City.   It has taken me nearly three hours to upload, edit and post these pictures, so I'm short on patience and not really in a chatty mood.  I should mention that 1) these pictures are in a random(ish) order because Blogger is pain in the butt, which is also contributing to my lack of desire to chat and 2) I played mighty heavily with the editing features on Picnik, so some of these pictures are a little funky.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.

I love the "aged" effects you found. I keep hearing great things about picnik, but have yet to try it myself. I need a few more hours in the day just to do all the cool stuff I keep seeing in blog land. On another note, I bought the ingredients to make your sinful peanut butter brownies. Wish me luck!

Picnik is really awesome. I was using their limited freebie options, but you could only upload 5 pictures at a time, which was a pain. I sprung for the $24.95 premium upgrade (12 months) and you can do a few more things with it. It's fun! And totally more affordable than Photoshop.

Those brownies are insane. I got the recipe from Anne Thornton, who has that 'Dessert First' show on the Food Network. I've never watched the show, but those brownies are incredible. Pippa will thank you with many womb kicks!
