A Christmas Panthers Game

A Christmas Panthers Game

H and I talked about going to a Panthers game in Charlotte, since last year we went to an away game in Foxborough, but we had trouble planning a weekend trip since the games were all on Thursday nights, Sundays, or Monday nights. I saw that they were playing the Falcons on the Sunday before Christmas, and we decided to drive to Charlotte for the game as part of our convoluted weekend-before-Christmas plan.

What to Wear for a Family Thanksgiving

What to Wear for a Family Thanksgiving

I’ve seen lots of cute outfit ideas for Thanksgiving Day, but since my family Thanksgiving celebration spans several days and cities, I needed several cute, versatile outfits that weren’t exactly what I wore last Thanksgiving. We also planned to run a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day and hike Sharptop Mountain on Friday, so I knew if I didn’t pack well I would have to raid my mom’s closet for activeware.

A Weekend in Lynchburg for the Virginia 4 Miler

A Weekend in Lynchburg for the Virginia 4 Miler

The weekend that I ran the 4 Miler was also a fun trip to Lynchburg—after we finished the 4 Miler we had the rest of the weekend to eat delicious food, explore downtown Lynchburg, and hang out with my family and H’s family. Lynchburg is the quintessential small town, so I saw tons of old classmates and family friends at the 10 Miler and 4 Miler. Downtown Lynchburg especially is way cooler than it used to be, so we always have to check out what’s new.

CC Takes New York: Brooklyn

CC Takes New York: Brooklyn

We spent Sunday of my girls’ weekend in New York in Brooklyn. The friend I was visiting lives in Brooklyn, so she planned our day. After our Sunday exploring, I see why Brooklyn was the birthplace of hipster culture—everywhere we went was cool-without-trying. During our day in Manhattan I had a vague idea of where we were, but, unfortunately, I totally lost track of which neighborhoods we visited in Brooklyn.

What to Wear for a Country Wedding Weekend

What to Wear for a Country Wedding Weekend

For our second wedding of 2018, we traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia the first weekend of September to see one of H’s best friends from childhood get married. Despite the buckets of rain that fell throughout the weekend and realizing the week before that the dress I had planned on wearing wouldn’t work, it was a perfect country garden wedding.
