Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev is not one to shy away from an epic trip. Just earlier this year, the brunette beauty grabbed a friend and headed off to Japan for a whirlwind trip, giving us tons of adorable selfies and hitting up pretty much every tourist spot imaginable. This trip, however, is keeping Nina a little closer to Atlanta, where the hit CW series is filmed. But don’t worry, we promise that it’s just as adorable as her foreign travels.

Took my mom to the White House last week where we saw @FLOTUS . We all agree every1 should #GetCovered #YourMomCares,” Nina captioned a photo of her and momma Dobrev hanging out in front of one of the White House’s many beautiful Christmas trees.

But that isn’t the only pitstop Nina and her mother, Michaela Constantine, made while touring the historical house.

“The woman that made me. And the man that made history #whitehousechristmas,” Nina wrote, sharing a photo of her mom looking up at a cool portrait of George Washington, aka the first ever President of the United States.

This picture is cute for many reasons, but we can’t help but notice how much Michaela’s resembles that of Katherine Pierce. Elena Gilbert’s hair is always straight, but Katherine puts a little curl in her lovely locks — perhaps Nina’s mom is a Katherine fan? Hopefully her heart isn’t crushed when Katherine (probably) dies in the 100th episode.
