Oh hey guys, I'm back!
I had a (mostly) great time in North Carolina and Tennessee, first hanging with Jeff's family for his sister's graduation from Elon University and then heading to the University of Tennessee in Knoxville to volunteer for Destination Imagination's Global Finals which ended up being such a good experience. I say the trip was "mostly great" because the first night I had a crazy allergic reaction to the hotel that made me really uncomfortable and then super self conscious because it left behind some fun lingering marks all over my neck and arms. Yum. I think it's finally time for me to get one of those allergy scratch tests and see what's up.
I shared a bit on Snapchat while I was gone (follow me @kristinadoes), so you may have seen me first at Elon (such a beautiful campus!) and on some pretty rooftops in Charlotte, and then hanging with the 12,000 kids from around the world that were competing at Globals (and maybe bragging on some of my kids a little). DI is a creative problem solving competition for kids from kindergarten through college, and Global Finals is the huge final competition of the year. They really come from all over the world - all of the United States plus 22 different countries represented this year. It was so fun to see all of the kiddos and all of their creativity. Unfortunately all of the kids managed to get me sick (!) so I spent most of yesterday on the couch (except for an accidental $300 Target run - whoops). I thought I didn't have anything to share here with you guys this week since I wasn't creating new content while I was gone, but then I turned on my camera to find not one, but two sets of photos I managed to take before I left! Thanks previous me for managing to plan ahead! So there will be some fresh new content up this week, as well as my May budget post coming tomorrow.
I hope you had a great long weekend, let me know what you've been up to!
