home is where the heart is.

woohoo it's friday! and that means i leave for jersey in a few hours! boyfriend and i are driving up and staying with my aunt and uncle until sunday afternoon. it also just so happens to be the weekend my parents are driving up from north carolina to stay with them for 10 days. which meas i'll actually get to spend father's day with my dad! it will sure be a fun-filled family weekend!

i haven't been up north to visit my extended family in about two years. which is very depressing. ever since i moved to dc and my parents moved to north carolina, i haven't been able to make many trips up there. it makes me really sad sometimes to think that back in high school we would all get together at least once a month for sunday dinners. yes, we do sunday dinners. and yes, they start at 2pm. and yes, there's a ridiculous amount of food, every time. and now i go two years without seeing them? depressing.

so now that my little pitty party is over i'm SO excited to show boyfriend my marvelous home state! this is the first time he'll be meeting the entire clan so he'll probably feel overwhelmed, but at least he'll be well fed :) 

in the good spirit of this post i thought it would be nice to dig up and post some old pictures of me and my family back in jersey. but then i realized i only had two pictures. remind me to have my parents dig up some more for me back in NC.



happy father's day, dad!

have a nice weekend!
