….is my favorite weekend. After the first full week of school, I was ready for a long, full (of fun!) weekend. That is for certain. I am completely in love with my job, my school, my students…everything about it, but two 12 hour work days back to back really made me look forward to some time NOT in Spivey’s Corner. Saturday, Marshall and I took a little road trip down to Charlotte for the day. We did a lot. First we hit up 40W and got the essential “road trip” yums: Bojangles. There is nothing better than a large tea and a biscuit and fries on a Saturday morning. It had been way too long. Our first stop once we got to Charlotte was Ikea (duh) and there we met up with my sister, her husband and their friend Katherine. In case you were wondering, Marshall is the most fun person ever to go to Ikea with and Cassidy drove alll the way there from their house in Matthews just to visit with us. Fun stuff. After Ikea, we went back to Cassidy and Dan’s for a little cookout (and reaaaallly cute pictures) and Jamie and Mary came and joined us. More fun stuff. After the cookout we met up with Marshall’s old roomie from Raleigh, Harris, who is now in medical school in Virginia since he happened to be home in Charlotte for the weekend. He is one of my most favorite people ever, and sadly I didn’t think to take a picture at that part. Boo. Any who, I can’t even express what a wonderful weekend it was. My cheesy facebook status says it all. There is really nothing better than a) a long weekend, b) a long weekend with beautiful weather and c) a long weekend with beautiful weather and being completely surrounded by people you love. Happiest September!
I “antiqued” this one up, but here’s a bit of sweet picture time with Cassidy and Dan. Yes, Cassidy, they are all cute. I promise. 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful September!
This is my favorite time of year, I am so glad it is finally here.
