In my mind I'm going to Carolina-Alison Krauss (suitcase town)

Do you remember when you were in high school and started visiting colleges?
{No, not that kind of weekend}
The ones you went on with your parents on an actual official visit with guided tours
And do you remember seeing a few random deserted campuses and having your mom whisper something about a suitcase school?
Well mine did as she explained those were schools where there was shit to do on the weekends so everyone packed up their stuff and headed to the bigger and more fun schools to party.
But then happily returned on Sunday afternoons to enjoy the peaceful and scholastic atmosphere so they could get their shit done during the school week.
Well I'm starting to feel like I'm living in a suitcase town
We leave every weekend
and it's not just us
everyone does
except the boys who stick around to hunt and fish with their wives bitching
And it's not that we don't all love Pawleys
it just seems Charleston or Charlotte or where ever seems to call us and lure us in come Friday afternoon
Well this time it's Richmond
that's my where ever
And this time it's my mom's Birthday
and I'll happily endure six hours in the car with my husband, our 6-month old, and a high-maintenance Boykin
to get to spend this weekend with my parents
both my siblings
and my nephew
under one roof

Just to be clear, I LOVE South Carolina 
I take every chance to show my pride
and I don't want anyone to misinterpret this post



  1. Have a great weekend! I know how you feel, I leavE Charleston often for the weekend to head to Charlotte to visit my family. Sometimes its nice to have a change of scenery! Have a fabulous weekend and Happy Birthday to your mom!

  2. Oh have a great weekend girl. I love this post. I miss ya. Sorry haven't been by in a while. Hope you are doing well. Xo

  5. Ugg , I hate long car rides ( with kids). I would have to move. LOL.

  6. Just to be clear, some of us WOULD leave our husbands to hunt and fish on the weekends rather than bitch at them...if we had somewhere in driving distance to go :)
    And again, the need for the private jet arises....

  7. Have a great weekend!! ps. love allison krauss
