The Past Couple of Weeks....

Virginia has been getting more exciting lately. Nick has been super busy as always, and I have been getting out of the house more. AND after applying at probably 15 places, I finally got a part-time seasonal job at Macy's. :)

So these are some of the exciting things that have been going on with us:

On November 5th, Nick and I attended our first Marine Corps Ball, celebrating the 236th birthday of the Marine Corps. The ball was at the Greater Richmond Convention Center and it was beautiful! I wish I would have taken pictures of the inside, but there was so much going on and we were enjoying ourselves so I completely forgot. We had a great dinner, met a lot of people and had a wonderful time.

 Last Thursday, I took a day trip to Old Town Alexandria with 7 other TBS wives. I didn't know anybody before the trip, but I made 7 new friends that day. All of us have so much in common and with our husbands going through the same things, we can relate to each other very well. We took the train from Quantico station and spent the day walking around, shopping, and eating :) It was a great day and I will definitely be taking another trip to Alexandria because there's way too much to see in one day.

 And.... I just had to post this picture, because this was the highlight of the weekend. I promised I would post some house pictures, but we don't really have any furniture so the pictures wouldn't be that exciting ;) We have been saving up for furniture and I really wanted a dining room table for thanksgiving since we will be spending it in Virginia this year. SO, we found a great deal a target and couldn't pass it up. And a little piece from home will be with us for thanksgiving- My mother-in-law sent us a thanksgiving package and our new table seemed like a perfect spot for our new plate.

That's what we have been up to. We miss everybody so much!!
