I had a last minute work meeting in Raleigh on Tuesday and I got so excited because it meant I would be able to see a lot of my friends!
We met for lunch near NC State at a place called Porters. It's always so fun to drive around the campus and re-live the olden days of when I was in college.
Us girls loved catching up. My how times have changed...Suz just had twins, Cheryl is 26 weeks pregnant and Beth has a one year old! We used to be at sorority functions, now they are discussing how their children sleep and what to register for at Buy Buy Baby! I just kinda listened and learned since I'm a little behind! ;)
Then I went to Suz's house and held both babies at once! Zach and Lucy! They are adorable!!!
Then I got to see one of my oldest friends, Ashley and her sweet girl Jane. And of course their pups George who just got his "summer hair-do!" Ash and I grew up together but now she and her husband live outside of Raleigh. I had never been to their home so it was certainly time. I loved hanging out with them and catching up with Ashley! She literally has the perfect lil family!
Then I scooted over and met Kelly at our sorority house. She is on the house corporation and they just finished a large addition to the back (you can't see in this picture) so I wanted to check that out. This home holds so many fond memories from college. I met my best girlfriends and bridesmaids here. Special place.
Kelly and I met her husband for dinner at the old El Rodeo then I drove about an hour further late Tuesday night and crashed at a lovely Hampton Inn. Ha. I had work stuff to do yesterday in Eastern NC and then I cruised back to Charlotte. It was a treat to be in NC this week and not in the northeast!
Forgot to mention, I had an awesome navy VW Passat as a rental car this week. It was nice! I want one now!
