A Day in Greensboro

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.

I don't know what's crazier, you still have an outfit from middle school or the fact that you can fit into your clothes from middle school. But you should definitely hold onto those. They're for sure coming back into style.

Al, it was Ginna, Lucy, Mom.
Bec, I know, right?! It's only a matter of time before this sweet hat/vest will be back in style.
