Mmmm ahhhhhh. I feel truly revitalized.

Refreshed, restored, reinvigorated, revived, (there are a lot of R words that mean the same thing) ready to take on anything.

All it took was a little SEAHAWKS FOOTBALL, BABAY!

Like 7 months ago when we were still in WA and feeling super sorry for ourselves for having to leave the best place in the world, we bought Seahawks at Panthers tickets for way too much money. It just needed to happen. Too much Seahawks gear had been purchased to sit in these North Carolina closets and rot! Oh, it was just such a perfect day. Charlotte is a neat-o little city and we found good food and frolicked all over the place and only ended up in one college bar where we quickly discovered we officially do NOT look like college kids anymore. PLUS, the Seahawks actually won a football game… What did I do to deserve such sweet happiness?

We also didn’t get kicked out of the stadium for harassing other patrons so winning.
