Although I know just writing these words will be like a dagger through Betsy's heart...but we're doing great! I'm sure we don't have any friends near as good as we do back in Chicago...because we have NONE still, but all things considered we're OK!
It's really awesome (my words, not Brian's) being close to family. We stopped by on Saturday for a little visit and got to go see Emily particpate in Relay for Life. Shout out! She was on mile 10 of walking at 8pm when we saw her...she still had over 12 hours to go! She finished with some crazy tan/burn lines!
Speaking of burn lines...Brian and I went to the beach on Sunday. I think we were feeling like official locals (AKA no need reapply sunscreen) and now we're little lobsters. It was totally worth it - it was just a great day! We started with brunch on the beach - $15 bottomless mimosas. I thought that the restaurants would cheap out on you and give you mostly OJ, but they actually leave bottles of champagne at your table...awesome!!! It's really, really hard to gauge when an approriate time to leave is! I felt like I could stay all freaking day - and then I stood up! We went down to the beach and played in the ocean, Brian and I tossed the frisbee around, and we just laid out listening to the ocean and feeling the breeze. Have you booked your tickets to visit us yet?!?
And then to add the cherry on the sundae, Brian had an LA-style job today! That's right folks! He spent 6 hours at CBS studios pretending to be a gameshow contestant!!! He got to perform all sorts of outrageous stunts - he was on a lubed up slip-n-slide, wore a sumo outfit an did some other crazy stuff...and he got paid for it! He's officially in the biz!
We finished off the night with a bottle of wine (and by us, I mean me), some beers (Brian) and some awesome, AWESOME tacos...here's the recipe ladies: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/beer-braised-chicken-tacos-50400000127537/
Life is pretty good, we're doing great!
