First, I was able to make it to Friendly Center in Greensboro at exactly 8:15 pm on a Thursday night and go shopping. I actually ran into three different stores and got exactly what I was looking for, all before each one of them closed at nine (even the coffee shop closes at 5 pm in Sparta). And, miracle of miracles, Qdoba doesn't close until ten during the week and I was even able to get my most favorite burrito that I haven't had in over a year, for supper. I literally sang out praises to the Lord as I was driving out of the parking lot with a fresh chicken burrito with no beans safely resting in the passenger's seat. Heaven.
Second, I got to stay up late and talk with my mom on Thursday night. I absolutely love living close to family. It was something I didn't have growing up, and now I'm on a covert mission to get all of my family up here in the mountains so we can hang out all the time. It's gonna happen, I just know it.
|Aren't we the cutest?|
Fourth, and finally, my new life collided with my old one as I paraded my delightful husband around, re-introducing him to beloved friends. It was lovely, so much fun, and I wished it hadn't ended so soon. I can't wait for Carrie and Andrew's wedding in May so we can do it all over again!
