Getaway!

Russ and I were able to get away last week-end for a night in Charlotte, NC. We left Noa with Bruce and Linda and just got to enjoy each other's company without having to worry about a baby. What a nice break! We were definitely ready to see the sweet girl when we got back though...

Here we are downtown. Our hotel had a great view of the city and we were able to walk around a little bit on Friday night.

We ended up going to this restaurant and it was great, they just took FOREVER! I could've made the meal myself in the time it took them to give us our bread. Here's Russ waiting for bread. :)

The next day we ate at California Pizza House (or something like that) - Yummy!!

And we went the mall. Am I missing out on the latest trend in make-up? These girls were everywhere - kind of scary.

Our hotel was overrun with East Carolina and Virginia Tech fans. We had to wait forever to eat breakfast and we were surrounded by a sea of marron and orange and purple and gold fans. They were quite a group too - very country. Check out this lady's hair...and outfit...and purse...and anklet...it is worth enlarging the photo...

You and Russ are such foodies, I love it!! I love that you were able to get away for a night! What a blessing to know you have people that love your daughter as much as you love her to watch her for a night! Thank God for Grandparents. :)

Seriously, I think if I came home with that crazy football outfit on (but Clemson gear), I think Guillermo would take me to the little white chapel in north charleston and marry me all over again!! That is Hilarious!!!
