Last weekend was a pretty spectacular time spent visiting the national Christmas tree at the White House, visiting The W Hotel lounge, and finishing off Sunday night at the most novel of events, Zoo Lights. Zoo Lights was by far my favorite part of the weekend, though it was quite chilly. While there I was able to see several cute (and bizarre) creatures, such as the two above. And yes, the owl is real! The little guys next to him are Malagasay Giant Jumping Rats from Madagascar! (That’s a mouthful, eh?) Overall, I had a wonderful times visiting all the beautiful sights and creatures and having a great time with some of my best friends and Brett!
