Right: Waiting in line at the Rayburn Building to talk to Debbee Keller, former SMU student, speak about her position as a press secretary in the Congressional offices. It turns out we waited for half an hour in the wrong line, then only waited 20 minutes in the right line.

Then we actually ran into him later that day – his hotel is a block from ours!

Right: Lizzie, Mollie and I preparing to leave the hotel for the Texas State Society’s Black Tie & Boots Ball. Traffic was a nightmare getting out to the Gaylord Hotel and an even bigger fiasco getting back.

Right: The view of Capitol Hill from about halfway down the Mall. Slowly but surely we made our way to right behind the seated area to get a great view of tomorrow’s swearing-in ceremony spot.
