2. A Hokie win - this made for a much more cheerful evening than it might have been!
3. More lovely fall weather. We have been lucky that all fall the weekends have been gorgeous - all of our rain has occurred during the week.
4. Generous family. Brian's aunt and grandmother were nice enough to come and babysit the kids so that we could go out to an art show and dinner.
5. Good friends. Getting to spend grownup time with some of our favorite people doesn't happen very often, but it is great when it does!
