It’s been a fun fun morning in beautiful 70* weather, good music and fun times.

Those boys used to be sooo wild.

The frat guys had a bunch of these Southern Tide croakies that they get in exchange for photographing them. I took one and said I’d blog about it 😉

The guys are having a BBQ fundraiser for the Red Cross with all the fixins and a bluegrass band.

Not knowing what would be served, I picked up a salad from the Harris Teeter salad bar to bring.

Sun-dried tomato tofu, beans, veggies and fruit.

I also enjoyed one of these non-alcoholic drinks :) Gotta have some Coke every now and then. [Although now I am so thirsty!!]

It’s so fun to be back on campus. We were just debating how many pages we must have read while here. Davidson was HARD work but one of the best experience of my life. Do I have any Davidson readers!?

My sophomore dorm!!

Love seeing a composting poster on the door of a frat house!

I plan on eating this apple around 3 as a pre-wedding snack along with a few cashews from our welcome bags :)

Excited!! Love is in the air!

I’m glad to see they’re pushing the compostable Solo cups – think about how much plastic will be saved! :)
Going back to campus is fun when the weather is good.

15 Ashley March 20, 2010 at 3:03 pm

Hey my cousin is at freshman at Davidson right now!! We are from Texas so I really knew nothing about Davidson until he chose to go there. Sounds like a great school!


16 Carrie (Love Healthy Living) March 20, 2010 at 3:06 pm

Awwww, isn’t it so fun to revisit your college campus? I always get so nostalgic! Sounds like you are having perfect weather, enjoy!

P.S. The frat house ceiling is naaasty!


17 Cynthia (It All Changes) March 20, 2010 at 3:11 pm

Visiting college campus and not having all the page work looming over your head must be fun. And yeah for an eco friendly environment.


18 Katherine March 20, 2010 at 3:26 pm

I’ve been loving salads lately – warm weather is in the air!

I used to be shy about bringing my own food to places where food was part of the event, but I found that the best reaction to give when people comment….is no reaction. I ENJOY my food :-) – People are less critical when they realize that you aren’t affected by their reactions and are doing what you are doing because you enjoy it!


19 Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) March 20, 2010 at 3:43 pm

Perfect weather for such a fun outing!! Everyone looks like they’re having a blast. 😀


20 Martha March 20, 2010 at 3:57 pm

I’m a Davidson reader! Class of ’06. I live in CA now, so I don’t get to go back to visit often…which is why I LOVE these posts with pictures of our old stomping ground. I miss it so much. Enjoy your time in the area…and Go ‘Cats!


21 Kath March 20, 2010 at 9:51 pm

Did we know each other!? I went by Koops :)


22 Heather (Heather's Dish) March 20, 2010 at 4:04 pm

23 Maggie March 20, 2010 at 4:06 pm

Gorgeous weather and what an awesome looking salad. For once we’re keeping up with you here in NYC–it’s 73 and sunny here too :) Can’t wait for the wedding pictures.

I’m a Wisconsin grad so the frat scene is a familiar one! Always so fun to go back to campus.


24 Kelly @ Local Foodie Fight March 20, 2010 at 4:29 pm

yikes!! fratty mcfraterson! what a funny sequence of pictures.


25 Kristina March 20, 2010 at 4:43 pm

I’m a Davidson alum and haven’t been back in AGES (like 12 or 13 years). From what I can gather, there have been a lot of great changes made at the school. God, college life on a nice spring day = total bliss.


26 Kath March 20, 2010 at 9:52 pm

You would totally not recognize the place!! The campus changed a lot when I was there and now the whole town is developed all the way to 77!


27 Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin March 20, 2010 at 4:51 pm

I LOVE foosball!!! Looks like you had a blast!


28 clay March 20, 2010 at 4:54 pm

32 Kristine March 20, 2010 at 6:28 pm

GO CATS! Davidson Class of ’03

Kath, I met you when you were a freshman and I was a sophomore. At the time I was also the Overnight Hosting Coordinator for the Admissions Office, going door-to-door and begging freshmen to host prospective students. You graciously agreed (of course)! :-)

I love your blog and read it daily. Our favorite discovery so far has been baking sweet potatoes “low and slow.” Thanks for sharing your journey with us – can’t wait to hear about the new adventures in Charlottesville!


33 Kath March 20, 2010 at 9:52 pm

:) I do remember that prospect visit! I did that myself when I was a junior in college. It was so fun!


34 Mae March 20, 2010 at 6:56 pm

Hahaha the ceiling is cracking me up! love it. :-)


35 karin March 20, 2010 at 7:23 pm

I’m a Davidson Alum as well! Just graduated last May. Stumbled upon your blog awhile back and have really enjoyed it–especially getting to see the beautiful images of Davidson. I live in MA now and so haven’t been back to campus since graduation–I need to get down for a visit soon!


46 Lauren March 22, 2010 at 8:05 am

Aww! Seeing these pics reminds me of so many crazy fun weekends at Davidson. I went to UNCC but some of my great friends went to Davidson so I was there almost every weekend!
