My mom and sister visited last weekend! It was epic. For many, many reasons.
First of all, any time we’re all together, there is never ever really a plan but somehow we always have a kick-ass time.
Secondly, Mom and Janie visiting meant that Shelton and I were forced to get our apartment whipped into shape! How do you like my make-shift pallet headboard? It was painfully easy to make. You just take two pallets… and prop them up against the wall. Set some pictures on top that you
are too lazy to hang haven’t hung yet and wah-lah! All done.
My mom says that everyone should have the “Queen” come once a year. She’s right. It does wonders for your home.
We promptly went for drinks. Sup Crushes at Sup Dogs — our favorite Greenville haunt.
Rocked some blue hair. Got
shitfaced tipsy. Had a conversation about Frasier and the importance it is to have a burger without interruptions. Don’t ask.
Moral of the story: Don’t drink and then talk nonsense with your eyes closed, because people that say they love you will record you and make you watch it the next day after you’ve sobered up.
As always, the trips are too short. But the family time was just so needed. I enjoy my mom and sister oh-so much. They’re my everything. And I’m ready for Christmas! I am so Texas homesick these days. Which I will have you know is worse than being regular homesick because Texas is a magical place.
Speaking of magical… Our last night was spent sipping wine at Maggiano’s, musing about a Vegas wedding (we’ll see!) and eating the most incredible tiramisu. I pretty much wanted to lather the cream all over my face. Too delicious. So worth it.
So, this is my little hello update for you. After Mom and Janie left work sucked Shelton and I in like a vortex (someone please tell me that working this hard will pay off one day…) and I’ve enjoyed being unplugged this week. The apartment is a mess, the air mattress has been set up in the living room for over a week now, and you know what? I’m fine with all of it. All of it.
