Flying in

My good friend Dan is flying in tonight. Although it means I'll be at the airport for the 2nd time in as many nights, I guess that's OK. No, in real life I am very excited to have Dan come visit me.

I've got things all set up for him. Clean sheets on the bed, a clean towel in the dryer, and some easy foods to make in someone else's house (sandwich foods). I've also reserved one of the couches in our house to sleep on. A lot of people are at our house right now so I was starting to get a little worried about my own sleeping arrangements.

Who knew there could be so much to prepare to have a friend stay with you for a few days?

I'm excited for him to get here so we can both go to sleep. Since we'll each be on East Coast time I figure that is pretty much going to be our first priority.
Good night folks.

Today, has been a bit of a sleepy, rainy day.

After a spectacular dinner out with my good friend Krista and then some quality couch hang out time with some buddies from art school I was ready for bed last night. And that feeling has kind of leaked into today. I'm trying to convince myself that I need to go on a run (because I do need to go on a run) but so far that convincing has lead to nothing. Both Mamaw and I have been in the same boat AKA lounging on the couch under blankets for much of this morning.

I did get the house vacuumed though. So, there's one thing. I'm also looking forward to some quality hang out time with Chrissy who if you don't know personally you may remember from the blog that I went to her wedding in October.

I hope the rest of you are being a bit more productive with your time than I am and are having a wonderful morning.

Where to even begin?!

This weekend passed by in a whirlwind of excitement!

I went from visit's with friends from Philly and the DE family, into wedding prep and then, even better, the wedding! It was beautiful and I'm both excited and a little jealous about the adventures that Jon-Mike and Jackie are embarking upon with their lives.

The wedding itself was filled with; moving prayers and speeches; beautiful dresses, flowers and setups; an open bar, dance floor and delicious cookies (plus, of course, wedding cake with gelato!) and plenty of aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters and family of all sorts.
The husband to be and our wonderful uncle Eddy.

After the wedding I had more quality family time as I rode down to Richmond, VA with my Uncle Roger and Aunt Sarah and beautiful grandmother. We watched VCU move into the final four by winning against Kansas and then I went to visit friends from school.

The week has been radiation treatments in the afternoon and family and friends all around that. Mamaw and I have gotten in some walks and I have many a plan to see some great people. Looking forward to continuing with my visit for the rest of the week.
