@MissNoodles:  Do you think they’ll let me borrow Marie’s earrings? They’re perfect for my dress and compliment the jewelry I got my BMs.

@MissNoodles:  I’ll take Napoleon’s Diamond Necklace please!!! 🙂

Fun. I went to the Museum of Natural History as an 8th grader and did not appreciate it as much as I would now. Went to DC again in 2011 but we didn’t have time to go there.

I live near DC, and love visiting the big rocks in the Natural History museum! That said, I’m always pretty underwhelmed by the Hope Diamond (yes yes, I know it being the biggest blue diamond is a big deal). I like quite a few of the other things there way better (the Marie earrings are a personal favourite).  It prolly doesn’t help that they don’t dust it often enough, so it usually has a really obvious layer of dust on it. >_< But man, I do love that museum and all the gorgeous jewels in that room!
