Big News Weekend

Hal and I had a pretty big 4th of July weekend.

First it started with Hal taking his *cross your fingers* very last CPA exam. The past year the CPA exams have ruled his entire life, and so far he's passed all of them on his very first try, so here's to hoping the streak continues, so he can finally do a little less of this.
He took his test in Baltimore, so we used it as an excuse to spend a night up in the city. We walked around the harbor and ended up walking to Fells Point area in a state of desperate hangryness. We ended up at Riptide by the Bay and Hal splurged on his big day and snow crab until his heart was filled with happiness.
We continued the delicious restaurant streak at Miyagi the next night. Which, if you've never been, and you like sushi; definitely go. It was so good and not too expensive. We ran into some friends while there, and I got some good news.
After 2 1/2 years I'm officially a Certified Birth Doula. HOLLA! I'm so excited to finally be certified. It just felt like it was never going to happen between waiting to gather all the training and experience needed, and the 2 1/2 months it took them to finally get to my application. I can't believe it's finally done. Maybe once I get my cool name tag and certificate in the mail it'll feel more real.

And to finish out the weekend with a bang, we hiked Old Rag which is probably the most famous hike in Virginia. You'll hear more about it later, but it was so beautiful. I could barely walk the next two days from my lyme disease arthritis acting up again, but it was so worth it.
