Settling In with Steel Magnolias

We've been in Virginia for a total of three days and so far we LOVE it!

The boxes are dwindling and the rooms are starting look more like rooms than storage units! Of course the kitchen was the first to be set up :)

So far we have visited Target (twice!) and there is no Walmart near by, so it's practically Heaven. Not to mention there is a Whole Foods on the other side of Richmond! Speaking of that, we didn't realize we are only 14 miles from the city. And on Friday nights they have a free concert at the Farmer's Market called "Red, White and Brew" where local farmers bring out tasty treats and home brew! YIPPIE!!!

I could get used to this city life!

Patton is getting used to the place. I think he misses being able to run out in the yard without a leash, but we've been taking him to play and fetch in the morning, and that makes his day! Plus, he has a new memory foam bed. Yes, he is Prince Patton.

At the moment I am watching Steel Magnolias and sipping lemonade, and it almost feels like home. The only thing missing is cheese grits!

But this isn't too much different than home. I thought Alabama had a lot of Civil War battlefields...this place blows Ft. Toulouse out of the water! I absolutely cannot wait to visit them all.

Well that's about it for now. The movie's getting to the good part! "Remember what Daddy always says - an ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure!"

Love and Kisses from Britt and Matt!
