I said goodbye to my VW Beetle the morning of the party. We shared 10 years together (through learning how to drive in high school, to college in Kentucky, dozen of road trips in between, moving with me to Nashville after graduation, carting around several children, and eventually moving with me all over the first two years of marriage, to finally be sold here in SC) !!!! While it drove me crazy with it's expenses and smallness most of the time, I still loved it all the same....
I hope the teenager that bought it will enjoy it as much as I did! Plus, it didn't hurt as it was being driven away that the new owner has the same last name as my mom's maiden name! My parents joked that it is staying "in the family"
....and I did shed a few tears.
(for the record, the color was "Midnight Blue"- purple in sunlight and dark blue in shade)
After living in our house since August, Matt and I felt it was time to have a little housewarming party. Even though our home is FAR from being finished, we are at able to have overnight guests and visitors. The party was an "Ugly Sweater" Party and guests were allowed to drop in at any point and stay as long as they wanted. It was nice to host several people including both of our parents!!
Shout-out: A HUGE thanks to my dad for helping Matt rake leaves and make the yard presentable, to my mom for steaming curtains, sweeping, and making food, to Kendra to vacuuming and washing the Bug, to my mama in law for bringing food and my father in law for getting last minute things!!!!!!

We had a "photo booth" wall set up with props we used at our wedding :)
I had fun and I hope everyone else did too!
Did everyone read this before coming?!
