Drew and his beautiful date, Caitlyn, both looked amazing for Homecoming 2014 a few weeks ago. We met up with another couple that they were going to homecoming with for pictures at a hidden spot on campus that not too many people know about called Memorial Gardens.
All of us were waiting for Drew’s date, Caitlyn to get there, who by the way a week or so after he asked her to homecoming, became his girlfriend (post to come). So anyway, we were all standing there talking with the other parents and Drew was anxiously awaiting the arrival of his girlfriend. I almost wished I’d videoed him when she got out of the car…”W-w-w-Wow!” was his response. Classic.
We took a few shots and I needed to adjust Caitlyn’s wrist corsage as it was a little top heavy. As I adjusted it my thumb was holding the metal bracket and just as I started to move it, it sliced right down the center of my thumb. Blood began to drip, but I didn’t want to stop. We needed to get these pics done, so we could head to the house. Rob and I were also in charge of preparing a homemade Italian meal. There was no time for bleeding thumbs! I, thankfully, had a tissue in my pocket so I grabbed that and began to apply pressure. All the while, getting them to pose and snapping away.
Most of the pictures turned out lovely, except the ones of both couples together. I hope to get some pics of them from one of the other parents soon.
We got home and the 2 couples sat in the living room chatting, while the Georgia vs. South Carolina game was on. Rob, Alex, and I were busy in the kitchen finishing up the dinner. Here’s Alex and Rob cranking out the homemade pasta.
Here’s Drew sitting next to the beautiful Caitlyn across from their friends.
With dessert, we served sparkling grape juice in wine glasses for a fun little touch (Rob’s idea.)
What an exhausting day for Rob and I, but we love doing special things for our guys. We also had a little extra motivation knowing that Rob and I were leaving the next morning for a little getaway (and work conference for Rob).
