    Hooray, dgpiaffeteach! Since we're in the same region, I suggest you find the closest Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams and get something delicious to celebrate (I recommend the Mango Lassi frozen yogurt).

    Jeni's is my favorite! How did you know? :lol: I won't be moving down until July but I definitely plan on celebrating. I love anything mint but also really like the Juniper Lemon Curd I had last time. BF lives within walking distance-I'm glad I don't, my whole paycheck would go there in the summer :haha:
