Weekend in Charlotte

I’m posting here to announce the BEST WEEKEND EVER in Charlotte. How I
ever drove away on Monday afternoon is beyond me.  That guy is
something else.  That’s probably why I’m marrying him. In 51 DAYS!

It is a strange thing walking into your future apartment and being
allowed to hang stuff on walls and move furniture and having very
important conversations about whether that ‘thing’ is a rug or a
tapestry and does it belong on the wall or the floor.

By the way, I think it’s best as a tapestry, and I assure you would
look great on the wall. Danny does not agree. See below.

Tapestry? (Danny painfully agrees to demonstrate).

Rug? (I painfully agree to lay the small tapestry at a slight diagonal
under the table to demonstrate its use as a rug).

To be honest, it will NOT remain in either location, but it was a fun
exercise in decorating together.

While he may not be on the tapestry train, he does have quite good
taste, and I look forward to hopefully making our space a cozy
reflection of our combined aesthetic. {I’ve been reading too many
design magazines.}

Our weekend also involved a belated Valentine date to the Liberty
(yummy!) and the movie “The Vow”.

I have this thing where I really fight crying at movies. I just find
it awkward to walk around with puddles of mascara under my eyes in a
public place. I made it about ¾ of the way through “Courageous”, but
that movie really wore me down! I was pleased that I had actually made
it all the way through “The Vow” with no crying, but alas there was
some serious tear duct build-up. And then, an abundance of crying and
hugging in the car. Needless to say, I really liked the movie. And I
really like my fiancé.

Other things we did during my visit included brunch, red velvet
waffles for dessert, a rotisserie chicken joint, more brunch, two
Insanity workouts (I'm still alive!), and a dance lesson! You can
add to the list of his noncritical but awesome qualities that
D has rhythm and is a fast learner.

And that is our weekend in a very big nutshell.

I love D.C., but I am so excited to get myself down to Charlotte to
start our life together!

P.S. I am really hoping to revamp this blog soon and begin posting
more often. It’s on my post-wedding ‘list’. So stay tuned . .
