miscellany//socks + raleigh

If you're like me, you love wearing knee high, soft, extra stretchy, argyle socks. Guess what? Target has them for $1.50. Jackpot. Go get some; they will change your life forever.

Onto more important things...

After fifteen years of moping around, I finally got to visit my state's capital. The beautiful, Raleigh, North Carolina.  My brother is on a mock trial team and that is where they competed.

And did I mention that they won the regional? Yes ma'am, they did! We were all ecstatic...Though I probably looked something like a zombie near the end of the night when they were announced the winner. 'Twas a long day, indeed...but a good long day.

Downtown Raleigh is oh-so-beautiful. And shiny. And you know that beautiful + shiny = lots of photos for Anna Gray to take.

You all would have fallen in love with this coffee shop. I was head over heels...

Because virtually everything was photo worthy.

This is probably my favorite photo that I took. Something about the contrast between the vibrant lights and the inky darkness makes me happy.

A few other facts...

>>Today I completed day two of driving for driver's ed<<
>> Practices for Annie Get Your Gun are going wonderfully<<
>>Fiddler on the Roof is quite a funny movie when watched with a friend<<

Is anything interesting going on your way?
