Took The Hubs to my absolute favorite museum in Washington DC - The National History Museum!
This is totally dorky but see the dinosaur on the right with the long tall neck and the long tail? It's called a Diplodocus and it's my absolute favorite dinosaur in the whole world AHAHAHAHA.
Why? I don't know but I've liked it ever since I was a small child and I still love them.. they just look so graceful and elegant HAHAHA :p
So freaky.. this female fish as a "parasitic male" attached to her!!!
Korean Wedding clothes!!
Halfway through doing this post I suddenly realized this wasn't just a post about my absolute fav museum in DC ever.. but it apparently is also a homage to The Hubs bahahah! Every other photo seems to be a photo of him standing next to something.
The moment of realization when you realize YOUR sightseeing photos have become your parents photo album... and you SWORE you would never EVER let that happen. ::WAHHH:: hahahahaha
And now my favorite exhibit in this whole museum....
The Harry Winston exhibit!
The infamous and supposedly cursed Hope Diamond!
So freakin' gorgeous I die.
Even the "chain" itself is dripping with diamonds.. btw.. I think each individual diamond on the "chain" is larger then the size of my engagement ring. -___- HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
The history and the many hands the Hope Diamond has passed through.. you can read all about the diamond on it's wikipedia page here.
This is so pretty too.. I love anything girly and whimsical it looks like a lace bow but made with diamonds what could be better!! hahahaha!
This diamond necklace was a "push present" French Emperor Napoleon gave his from wife the Empress Marie Louise muhahah to commemorate the birth of their first son!
The gorgeous crown was a wedding present from Napoleon to his wife!
Love love the light teal/turquoise accent stones!
Gorgeous emerald and diamond ring!
The most amazing yellow diamond set I've ever laid my eyes on!
The blue sapphire on the right is about the same size as a child's first!!!
Amazing asscher cut diamond!
*Sigh* Obsessed with all things yellow diamonds.. and this one is just DREAMY!
A reminder that one day we must visit Easter Island to see the famous Moai!!!
Definitely one for the bucket list!
I'm sure you can figure out why this is my favorite museum in DC! I mean come on Dinosaurs & Diamonds what could be better muhahahah! Definitely worth a visit if you're visiting the Washington, DC area :)!
