Non-dull time in Dulles!

So, good news: my temp-to-perm position is, as of Monday, OFFICIALLY permanent =)

Haha, I know, random pic, but it felt pretty appropriate for me.

A-NY-WHO, I am going to be attending Firmwide Orientation up in Herndon, VA – staying at the Washington Dulles Marriott Suites from Sunday night to Thursday afternoon!  This four-day session is supposedly quite intense, but I am definitely excited about it, albeit a teensy bit nervous…the last time I went through this kind of process was at Disney, back in 2006!

The orientation itself is 7:30 AM to 4 PM each day and though I do plan to take my workout gear and run every morning (gym or otherwise) and also my GRE books for some evening studying, I also hope to take advantage of my trip up there and check out some local flavor – shopping, dining and etc.

On my “potentials” list?

  • Great Harvest Bread Company, Herndon, VA – I am so stoked for the GH coming to C’ville (soon!) but Kath’s recent posts have had me salivating even more than usual.
  • Bikram Yoga Reston – I haven’t had the chance to do Bikram in two (!!) months – and this studio is about 4 miles from my hotel and offers a $20 intro week offer.  That’s really tempting.
  • Caribou Coffee – yeah, it’s a chain – but I love it!  And we don’t have any in C’ville =)

I am still Googlin’ and Yelpin’ it up to find more places, but – oh mighty blogosphere, any must-see recommendations for me in the Dulles/Herndon area?  Let me know!
