A couple weeks ago I found a great deal of motivation and then I attacked our home. Those teacher gifts that I would never use? Goodwill. That shirt I've told myself that might come back in style? Goodwill. All of those bank statements from 2007? Soon-to-be shredded. Yes! Summer cleaning feels so good and I was pretty cut-throat about it, too. It's usually too hot to be outside (or at least it was the day I found motivation), and once you've purged it feels oh so nice.
But I did find this. A classic 1994 duo from Past Carrie's outfits. I made Andrew (who was really quite jealous of my cool style back in the day) take a picture of me and I texted it to the fam. I'll let you figure out who said what:
"Oh boy, it may be time to chuck that..."
"Omg why do you still have that?!"
"You kept it didn't you?!"
Last Monday I drove up to Greensboro for the day. It was perfect!
I got to meet Seth & Katie's sweet baby Blythe for the first time. I loved holding her and she is just precious.
It was a Caldwell reunion of sorts. I was so happy to see Laura and Brendan!
Becca & Blythe.
Katie is such an awesome Mama!
Her two year old son, Alden, came home after VBS. I went over to him and asked what he did that morning. He said something like they sang songs.
I said: "May I please hear a song?"
Alden: "Oh. No. Sorry."
Maybe you had to be there, but it was pretty funny.
I then went to get my hair cut! It was time.
Got to hang out with Lucethegoose! Her apartment is adorable and for some reason I felt like such grownups as we sat on her couch in her very own apartment drinking coffee.
Next I went to visit the parentals. They wowed me with mom's garden and sent me home with a beautiful bouquet of flowers (along with a ladybug who scared me to death when driving in the car three days later).
They're renovating the kitchen and putting in hardwoods in the living room (it was time!!). I went to take a picture and my dad jumped in. Can't wait to see the final product.
I just love my parents so much.
