Seaford, Delaware

I know I'm a day late on the blog, but let me tell you somethin' about Seaford, Delaware.  Jason's best friend, Jerry, and his wife, Kelly live in Seaford. I've never been there before, so when Jason asked me to tag along to see his friends this time (and to go see the Steelers kick the Redskins asses!), I agreed to tag along!  I always love new adventures! We departed after my shift at my other part-time job on Sunday and landed ourselves in Baltimore, MD for the evening. We woke up Monday morning, finished our drive to Seaford...only to get back in the car a few hours later to go to the football game at FedEx Field.  We watched the game (yes, the Steelers KILLED IT!), ate some food, sat in the wrong seats the whole time, got lost, waited in line too long...We were supposed to be 4 rows off the field...and the people helping us find our seats didn't catch that we were completely in the WRONG section! Oh well, we still had a blast, plus my rule of thumb is to "embrace the chaos," so I did! We drove back to Seaford after the game, slept like babies, got up on Tuesday and Jason declared it "Whitney Day"! I could literally do whatever my little heart wanted to. "OFF TO THE BEACH", I said! Before I knew it, my toes were buried in the warm sand and I felt like I was in heaven. We got to watch the waves roll in and out as we ate a killer lunch on the boardwalk and then the same view once we moved to a hole in the wall bar right below the previous restaurant. After our 1 hour commute back to Seaford and taking a nap (NOW THAT'S A VACATION!!!!) we all got to indulge in all-you-can-eat seafood! This is my favorite thing to do on the East Coast. The seafood is plentiful, affordable and DELICIOUS!

We woke up Wednesday morning and headed to the Iron Rooster in Annapolis, MD. It was a highly rated breakfast spot on our way home and HOLY CRAP. We'll just say that place exceeds expectations! Jason and I ordered a home made mixed berry pop-tart and a couple of SUPER tasty Bloody Mary's. Jason had a "make your own omelette" and I had a BELT, but instead of bacon, it was PORK BELLY! OH MY GOSH, what an amazing sandwich! I'd go back in a heartbeat! After breakfast, Jason took a snooze and I took over the wheel. We made it back, safe and sound, around 6:30pm. I intended to work while I was on vacation, but simply just didn't. I feel awful, but at the same time, I needed it! Below are some images I snagged while we were away...
