Last week was one of the craziest of the school year-conference week. Our plannings and after school hours are packed with back-to-back parent conferences and we have a late night at school to help accommodate working parents. I love the purpose behind it and the opportunity to connect with parents, but man, am I tired by the end of the week! Come Friday I was ready to leave school behind and enjoy some time with David.
Our weekend kicked off with a wonderful supper with some even more wonderful people, Brian and Noelle. We've known Brian for a while now but this supper was our first chance to meet his girlfriend, Noelle. We met Brian through our church and in the time we've known him he has become one of David's best friends. Sadly, he is leaving us to head back to New York to be closer to Noelle. I can't really blame him since she's such a fun girl:-)
Saturday morning I woke up bright and early for a hair appointment. If you've seen me recently you know this was wayyyyyy overdue. My girl, Karen, worked her magic and gave me an updated look very different from what I walked in with. It will certainly take some getting used to, but I love it!
Yes, I am wearing a scarf in the house. Yes, it is that cold.
That afternoon our friend Ed joined us. He didn't come up from Charlotte, or even drive down from Raleigh-Ed rode his bike from Winston-Salem to hang out. Crazy, right?!? He has a goal to ride his bike to a different North Carolina city each weekend in November. His trip to us wasn't even his longest at 70 miles. To get to Raleigh is over a hundred!
This is a video he made about his journey from NC to CA!
Once he showered and rested we headed down to NoDa, our go-to place for out of town guests. We chowed down on some Cabo Fish Taco before we headed back to the house. Before we headed home, though, I got to try Tier 3's Pumking beer. A bit heavier than any other pumpkin beer, but definitely worth the try.
Good thing this is a short week because I'm already counting down to this weekend!
