The kids and I headed to Elizabethtown at the end of last week to stay at the new house for a few days and try to get some work done and also because Caroline was invited to ride in her first parade! More on that in a minute, but here's a look at our new countertops. Most of them are in, but they still haven't finished a job that was scheduled to have been completed last Wednesday which is a little bit frustrating when us moving in hinges on this kitchen getting finished. The company we're working with is supposed to be taking the old granite countertops and re-working them to fit the kitchenette we're putting in the basement. Those counters are currently sitting in the living room so we can't paint in there until those are moved out. It's not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things, but the company has been scheduled to show up and have this done literally every day since last Wednesday and there's always a reason they have to cancel at the last minute. At least what's in there looks pretty.
We have never lived in a town where there's a Chick Fil A, so literally every day we're in Elizabethtown, Caroline begs to go there. I managed to get one more peach milkshake before they go out of season and Carter Scott ended up with most of it. He also tried and loved chicken nuggets. This was the first time I let them go in and eat and subsequently play in the playplace and of course, Carter licked the playplace. Shocking that he now has a cold. Babies are gross sometimes.
Now for the parade...it was the Heartland parade which is apparently something annual in Elizabethtown. The college had a car and Juston was asked to ride in it, so naturally Caroline was so excited to tag along, too. I didn't think Carter would be too excited to sit still in a car moving 3 miles an hour, so he and I waited until the last minute to grab a spot at the end of the parade route and watch. He whined most of the time, but we did manage to see Juston and Caroline ride by before we left.
After the parade, we headed back home for my class reunion that evening! I was so glad to get to catch up with some people I hadn't seen since graduating high school. We met up with our friends Marc and Meredith for dinner before the reunion. Meredith and I have been best friends since 2nd grade and our girls love hanging out, too! They live in Cincinnati, so we don't get to hang out as often as I'd like.
These ladies were some of the best friends you could ever ask for. I just love them!
And my outfit...I love any excuse to get dressed up and head out for a bit.
