Whirlwind Charlotte weekend

My parents came to Raleigh Friday morning surprising Lucy & Zach at daycare quickly followed by Jason & I arriving there. After items all piled into our mini-van, off Cici, Pops, Lucy, Zach & I went to Charlotte!

I love when dual event plans work out ~ I was able to split time with my Papa & also gave my good buddy B (aka Classic Annie) a baby shower!

We made it to Charlotte in time for dinner at the clubhouse Friday night, went back to the condo for dessert & playing with Papa. Saturday morning, Mom & I (with L&Z strolling along for the ride) were among the first at South Park mall for maybe the speediest shopping at 3 stores ever before dropping me off to get Papa’s car to dash to Whole Foods & the baby shower. Cici, Pops & Papa entertained L&Z for the day!

B’s shower was so fun! It was a blast to catch up with her & her family & friends, see her gorgeous house & hug on that lil baby bump. And make sure that baby G will be appropriately spoiled come July!

B's baby shower cake

I arrived back at Papa’s condo in time for dinner. (& thanks B, the leftover cake pieces were a shared hit between the 7 of us!) Then back to hotel for baths, books & bedtime.

Thanks to snoring (Dad & Mom!) I was awoken at 3:09 am. Usually, that’d mean roll over & go back to sleep but not on 4/19/15, it was #LillyforTarget morning! I managed 3 quick check outs (& lots of cart drops) & am so thankful a couple toddler pieces, 2 women’s tops, shoes, scarfs, a tote bag & a bracelet are on their way to me now. I snoozed through my alarm but made it to a Charlotte Target at 8:12am. Only to see all but one pair swim bottoms (in my size!) gone from the rack. I traded a XL girls top for a XL swim top, grabbed a put back dress for me & was handed a part of shorts for me that didn’t work for someone else. I did a quick sweep of the store & found juice glasses & a flask. I check out quick & made it back to the hotel in time to pack up & get all dressed & ready for church.

Papa’s church was a great service as usual then we enjoyed brunch at the clubhouse (where L&Z ate their weight in berries & loved sneaking off to say hi to the birds). Then just like that, we were back in the mini-van, this time in the pouring rain back to Raleigh. Whirlwind trip, but so much fun mixing family, friends & a lil bit of shopping!
