We recently had the preppy boyfriend's sister and her boyfriend in town for a visit. It was wonderful to have family in town and to spend some time getting to know her boyfriend. But, now that the guests are gone, my house is clean, and I'm killing time in the afternoon.... there's a sort of void. Rooms that were once full and conversations that were floating on the air are now empty and their is silence.
I know parents feel some of this when children head off to college, but I'm wondering... does anyone else feel this when the guests leave?
I guess it's the psychology major in me, but I find myself wanting to analyze this feeling... what is it telling me about my current situation? Am I lonely and I just don't realize it? Or is my life too busy and having time to spend with loved ones is reminding me how shallow this busyness makes me feel? Or does everyone have this odd mixture of nostalgia and and emptyness when house guests leave.... What do ya'll think?
In the meantime, you may remember that one of the things on my list of things to do before moving was to take a picture of the giant Agave plants in Texas... That was accomplished this weekend! How darling is the preppy boyfriends sister with her boyfriend. I'm telling ya'll the girl looks better in sweats and a t-shirt than I do straight out of the beauty salon in a gown! :)
What Preppy Wore Wednesday :
Blue Tunic - Blush purchased at TJ Maxx Spring 2009 - yes my hair sucks, and I'm looking up and no I don't know what is so interesting on the ceiling! :)
White Chinos - J. Crew Fall 2009
Silver Shoes - Gadzooks (Now Forever 21) Fall 2007 - I know pointy toe shoes are on their way out, and I know silver shoes and white pants... not a great look.. I normally wear this with black leggings but it was too hot in Austin to rock black leggings today.
Kenneth Cole Watch - Gift Fall 2006
Shell and Blue Bead Earrings - Local Boutique Winter 2008 - I bought these earrings to give as a gift to one of my girlfriends in Austin, they all have birthdays a month apart, but then I realized since I hadn't given the other girls gifts (I barely knew them when their birthdays came around), I couldn't give this girl a gift... I would have felt badly... so instead I kept them for myself! :)
Sunburst Ring - Phoenix Boutique Fall 2009
