Sunday after leaving the hotel C and I went back to Girlville's for the rest of our visit. We hung around a bit and then went to 3 houses from the Parade of Homes. The first house we visited was right in Girlville's "hood". Unfortunately it was sold, so we could not purchase it at 1.6 million. Next we drove to two other houses in the area of Girlville's parents. It's fun to see what's out there that we will never live in. Honestly, some of these houses had 5 bathrooms! A maid would be a must!
After we went back and dined on left over pizza from dinner and strawberries. We sat on Girlville's deck and had a lot of laughs. The Husband's mother stopped over for a visit. I think to see if C and I were as beautiful as we look in our photos! LOL
After C took one of her famous "26 minute" naps and Girlville and I chatted while she prepared Pumpkin Pasta for dinner. We ate outside on the deck again and it was wonderful. Good food, good friends! After dinner The Husband made a fire in their Chiminea and we roasted marshmellows! Oh, and C saw a HUGE bug...HUGE....that served as our entertainment for the rest of the evening. After cleaning up from dinner (did I help???) we sat a while longer and talked and talked and talked...then decided we were all exhausted! We could have each had our own nice room, but C did not want to sleep alone...could it have been visions of that BIG BUG in her head????
I woke at 6:45, but thought everyone was still asleep...which they were not. We went down at around 7:45 to find Girlville and The Husband reading the paper.....and breakfast was ready! Wow, talk about being spoiled! After breakfast The Husband left for his dentist appt. and C, Girlville and I talked some more....you'd think we talked enough, right???? We knew we had to get on the road for our 11 hour drive, so at 10am, we decided to leave....sadly....
Do you recognize this tree from Girlville's Fur Ball photos????
Tearfull goodbyes! What great friends!!!!
Off we went..first stop to get gas....then hit route 1 for the first part of our journey...not sure we made it out of North Carolina before this happened.....
Girlville send bread!!!!!
