Getaway and Good News

This weekend, although extremely busy, will go down in the books as one of the best. On Friday, we found out that Chris got a long-anticipated and amazing job. We've been waiting patiently, hoping, and praying for some good news and we finally got it. I'm so so proud of him! 

We already had a weekend trip to Virginia Beach planned, so off we went to relax and celebrate. What was supposed to be a 4 hour drive ended up being 6 hours. It was a little rainy at the beach but that didn't stop us from relaxing and having a good time.

We headed to dinner at a restaurant called Freemason Abbey in Norfolk (where we stayed) where I drank yummy wine, of course, and ate a pretty darn good crab cake. 

We found a nearby bar and drank beers and downed shots of Fireball. Yes it was amazing.  I can't remember the last time we went out, just the two of us. We people watched, laughed, and celebrated the good job news. We stumbled back to the hotel and passed out- I'm seriously too old for that, but we had so much fun!

We decided to drive back sooner rather than later (traffic was inevitable) but stopped at Colonial Williamsburg on the way back. It was fun, but hot and honestly it kind of freaked me out. Just like I don't like clowns, or mimes, I don't think I like people dressed in period clothing. is that weird? It definitely was cool to see the town and how it looked hundreds of years ago.

There they go, about to shoot cannons. They were loud.
Now I'm just looking forward to the upcoming 4 day weekend. There's a lot of change coming up, but I'm trying to take things one step at a time. It's all happy changes, for sure... just changes. :)
