This past weekend we decided to check out Virginia Beach and see if it's a place we'd like to come back to when the weather is actually warm. The decision is we will definitely be back, we had a great time! This is a terrible picture, but they put Christmas lights up the beach front for 3 miles which was pretty cute. This was Sunday, the weather actually got up to 70, and we went back and changed into our swim suites and got some sun. It felt so good, both of our skin has been in hiding from the sun for too long!

A picture of the coast line
One of the inlets with super cute houses on it
One of the highlights were the amazing crab legs we got, freshly caught and served...mmm mmm
They had a 3 mile board walk you could jog or ride bikes up and down

The beach at night
We rented some bikes as we usually do when we go to the beach, it never lets us down
You'll notice our attire, this day (Saturday) was really cold, we were completely bundled up so it was a pleasant surprise to find the next day so warm I think back east has some serious bi-polar weather.

Thanks for a fun trip Virginia Beach we hope to see you again soon!

Although we were sad we didn't get to go home for Thanksgiving, we made the best of it and decided to make our own dinner. Everything turned out pretty good, and we had another couple over to enjoy it with us. We did the whole pumpkin pie thing too. I didn't have evaporated milk so I used skim milk and they still turned out ok suprisingly!

Our fellow friends who don't get to go home for the holidays either

The finished product.
Now we are going to one of Bryan's residents house on the real thanksgiving day and off to Virginia Beach tomorrow after Bryan gets off work! We can't wait!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

A year ago from today, me and Bryan were here in Washington DC for his interview. This interview was the last of 12 in less than a month, and Bryan had gotten little sleep, little food, and some seriously high stress. We didn't get to our hotel till after 2 in the morning because we got lost, on top of not getting much sleep before. This is him before he went to his interview a year ago. He said this place was a long shot, but he'd give it a try anyways. As you all know despite these things it went well, and we are very happy it did because DC is awesome. Now he's on the other side of it all, interviewing not the interviewer and man is it a much better side to be on for him. Here he is getting ready to go and see who the next years possibilities will be.

A few weekends ago Bryan and Shelly got to come down and visit us. We fit in as much as we could in a weekend (including sleeping in). Tried some good restaurants, did some site seeing, and played games. Everything was great except for a disturbing story they told us about an 8 year old girl who still breast feeds... still can't shake that one off. This is 2 Amy's and amazing pizza place, if you ever come down we suggest you try it out.

Thanks for visiting us Barneys!!!
