Virginia Beach

Boyfriend and I are back from Virginia Beach! I'm happy to report that after one month of dedicated dieting, I blew all of my progress in four gluttonous days. I'm going to restart my diet in a few days. I was going to start right away, but Boyfriend reminded me that I promised to eat a whole pizza at the Pie with him when we were done with our diet in May. 


We had a really nice trip overall and it is definitely a place I would go again. The weather was hit and miss, but the water was warm enough that even on the chilly days that we got to head out on the nature trails or boogie board for a little bit.

I'm glad to be back home, though I wish I had a little more time off fro work to settle back in. I have a lot to think about. I've officially met all of Boyfriend's immediate family and, spent 4 days at a beach house with them.

Our trip started off fairly uneventful. We found a lovely person in our apartment complex to take care of Kitty and made it to the airport without issue. Unfortunately, our luck ended there. We had an awful layover in Philly, a city I have decided I hate, and our flight ended up being rerouted. Originally we were going to land in Norfolk, but instead had to land in Newport News, a tiny airport, because the fog limited visibility in Norfolk so badly. We then had to take a taxi back up to Norfolk, adding about 1 1/2 hours total to our travel time.

After a night of not sleeping on the plane and being run for loops at the airport Boyfriend, surprisingly, was in a very bad mood (usually I am the one in the bad mood). Boyfriend's bad mood made me even more nervous to go spend a week-ish with his family.

Luckily, his brother was late to pick us up. So, in the additional 20 – 30 minutes we spent waiting, I was able to karate chop Boyfriend into behaving a little bit better.

The week overall went pretty well. Boyfriend's siblings are really nice and his niece (1) and nephew (2 1/2) are great. I got along the best with them – even though I don't have a special affinity for children, I feel better with them than adults that I don't know.

The best part about the trip, were the days we got to boogie board. We couldn't one of the days because the undertow was apparently so bad the lifeguards were not letting anyone out past their knees. The next day we were allowed to go in up to our thighs, but weren't supposed to boogie board. without flippers

In a rouge move, (that I DO NOT recommend or endorse for safety reasons) Boyfriend and I took our boogie boards and ran out to the water when the lifeguard wasn't looking. We got in a good 30 – 45 minutes before the supervisor came out and made the lifeguards kick everyone on boogie boards out again. It was totally worth it.

I want a house by an ocean, next to the mountains. If I could magically make Yellowstone ocean front property I would be happy. And, rich. Because I think a lot of other people would want to live there too and I would sell the land for a lot of money.

  1. It really was a rouge move because we got caught red-handed!
