Hi guys!! We are home from our long day of Homecoming activities. It was a great day – and it didn’t rain!!!!!!! I am pretty proud of the way I handled myself health-wise today given that I was surrounded by drunk people most of the day. I didn’t have a drink until dinner, but not because I was trying to be strict, but because I just didn’t need/crave one. I could have easily sipped beer all day, but then I would be feeling drunk and sick right now, so I decided just to not sip beer all day and the end result was much happier.
Starting with our brunch, Larbs’ friend KitKat put on a fabulous display of breakfast foods!
The most amazing baked challah french toast!
Plus I had a bit of sausage casserole, fruit, and some sour cream coffee cake. And coffee! The food tasted SO good after my workout and late breakfast hunger.
And a bite of bagel a little later (I have horrible cuticles – sorry!)
Once on campus, we put on a display of our own for our tailgate: ham biscuits, kashi party crackers, the best homemade hummus ever (Barefoot Contessa’s recipe), the husband’s homemade bread in toasts, broccoli pesto, cheese, grapes, and rice crispy treats. Karen loves to join us for Davidson events and she prepared most of the spread.

Gallery of Bites
Get ready for a gallery of bites!!! This isn’t every single bite I had, but my camera was in my lap so I took a photo of 90% of them because it was easy enough:
Football + Oysters
SAE Oyster Roast
I didn’t have any though. They weren’t that appetizing.
THE SUN CAME OUT!!!!!!!!!!
Across the street from campus is the most amazing bar/pub/restaurant. Excellent beer. Excellent pizza. How to choose between over 50 beers on tap!?!?!
I settled on a pumpkin ale – and I’m not even sure which it was because it was loud and I yelled “PUMPKIN” across the bar and she retrieved one
For dinner Karen, the husband and I split the Mediterranean Pizza. The Brickhouse has the most amazing pizzas. Perfect chewy crust, perfect wetness and meltedness of toppings, perfect size. Here’s the one we got:
Guess I’m having pizza two nights in a row!!!
I had 2.5 slices:
I had an Asian Salad to go with it:
While I know I probably ate more calories than I needed today, it was one of those “could’ve been way worse” events, so I’m happy with the moderation. The husband, on the other hand, did not exhibit moderation today
I’m off to finish The Office while we wait for my parents to arrive. They’re taking us and Larbs (who is still out partying with her friends) to brunch tomorrow but are staying at our house tonight.
Hope you guys are having fun Saturdays!!
