Our days in Charlotte passed quickly but they were great.
The rental place only had a convertible so we got to cruise in style.
We spent some time with Billy and Kate and their sweet new baby Rush. We also spent some good time de-briefing with some folks within our organization.
Then, home to Houston.
Our flight got in early so I got to sneak up on Mom while she was ordering at Starbucks.
It was so much more fun carrying all those duffels TO the car rather than FROM the car 2 years ago.
We grabbed some Chic-fil-ay.
We stopped at Gma's.
It is so beautiful right now! So much green and the temperature is perfect. Texas is welcoming us home.
A big hello to my kitties!
Then it was time to go find some Sandozes.
Driving to their house was the first time I had driven in 2 years. Wow. It didn't feel strange at all either. It felt great.
It was a great afternoon catching up and drinking coffee.
Then all the Pasches came over to celebrate in true Sandoz fashion- a big barbecue! Pork chops, pork loin, sausage! Oh man.
Kenny made us some pinatas to celebrate. We laughed a lot.
It was just so good to be together. Nothing like it.
And then this morning, a HAIRCUT!
I can't describe how awesome it felt to talk in English to the person cutting my hair!
Thanks Chandra! Well worth the 2-year wait.
And now I am doing laundry and watching Nacho Libre with Q.
Things are really really good.
