Virginia is for Naughty Mommies

This post may contain affiliate links. Read full disclosure policy here.  
So I know the saying is “Virginia is for lovers.” But I’m hoping that it’s also for Naughty Mommies because that’s where this Naughty Mommy is headed!

WE ARE MOVING TO VIRGINIA.

In case you didn’t know, I currently live in New Jersey. So this will be a fairly substantial move…a little over three hours from my current town.

My husband got an amazing job opportunity in the D.C. area and we decided to take it! Sure, I cried for a week after we decided. But I’m better now.

It will be exciting, they tell me. Virginia is a great place to raise a family, they say.

I’m trying to look at the bright side. So far the biggest positive I see is that I can live my life as a hermit, since I won’t have any friends down there. Hooray!

Now all we have to do is sell our house, find a new one, pack up three kids, a dog, two cats, and an aquarium and we will be all set. So easy.

Please bear with me during the next few weeks/months of selling a house, packing, and looking for a new house. I might be a bit more complain-y than usual. If that’s even possible.

I might be even more anxious. Keeping a house clean and ready to show at an hour’s notice is not something I excel at. But I’m going to try.

And if you or someone you know lives in Virginia, let me know! I’ll need to know some key information about my new state, such as:

  • Are there Targets?
  • What are the grocery stores?
  • Do people have Southern accents?
  • Do they get Bravo?
  • What celebrities live in Virginia?
  • Do Virginians call it “Taylor ham” or “pork roll?”
  • Do they sell wine in grocery stores?
  • Do they sell wine on Sundays?
  • Will I have to pump my own gas?

Just the necessities here, folks…

Spread the love!

    We just moved from Philly to Tallahassee, Fl in May. I won’t sugar-coat it, a big move uprooting your whole life is SO HARD. I miss Philly a ton, but I think we made the right decision for our family. I know it’s just a matter of time before it really feels like home. Good luck!

    Congratulations on the new job and move to Virginia. Moves are so stressful, especially with kids, but hopefully you’ll be so happy here in the long run. I live in Northern VA and want to give you a warm welcome and some good news.
    –We have an abundance of Targets. (Hooray!)
    –You will have a wide selection of grocery stores (Giant, Safeway, Wegmans, Super Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Harris Teeter, etc.).
    –Southern accents are rare in the DC area.
    –We have Bravo, thank goodness!
    –Celebs….hmmm….not sure. I’m an author, and there are many authors here. Lots of celebs visit DC. (Remember Real Housewives of DC? I was kinda sad to see it fail.)
    –Alcohol is sold in grocery stores…I think on all days.
    –Only bad news is that you’ll have to pump your own gas. Sorry. ๐Ÿ™
    –Best news is that Northern VA is SO family friendly. Playgrounds, pediatricians, and preschools abound. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Welcome again! Feel free to message me on Facebook if you have other questions!
