Reunions are fun and weird!!
Most people have probably seen their good friends in the past 5 years at weddings and trips and such. But it’s all the people you were sorta friends with that it’s so fun to see. This really is just like being back in college!
Our drive down today was SO LONG. But thankfully Matt drove the whole way (not sure why he let me get away with that!) I’m liking Girl with the Dragon Tattoo a lot now It’s like the game CLUE!
Two days till I’m back home!
We made it with just enough time to check into our hotel and grab a snack. A Hungry Bar I had frozen and thawed. These are SO GOOD!
I hate ironing and rarely do it. I just don’t think it’s very necessary. But one of my shirts was terribly wrinkled so I got Matt to do it (he doesn’t mind ironing!)
He went from husband
To frat boy in 60 seconds!!
[Don’t worry, the light goes easily back onto the wall!]
Our first even was a welcome reception at Ye Ole 900 Room
Actual quote from the night: “I remember you were the first person to ‘Poke’ me on Facebook” –Snake to Alaa’
My senior year roomie! [Meredith where are you?]
Do you see the college student playing foosball barefoot in the next room!?!
The food was pretty tasty, but lacking in veggies.
Some fruit, puff pastried and fried finger foods, pita chips and dips
Note that the allergy card had ONION on it!!!
I had a small mixed plate, followed by a second plate of hummus + pita and another of fruit. It wasn’t much for dinner, but I don’t have a huge appetite. I think the combination of super indulgent 8 days and the time change has thrown it off. Two lame dinners in a row! Hoping for a good one tomorrow
We all headed the the famous Brickhouse Tavern – the local watering hole – for socializing.
I am also pretty alcoholed out – I had no desire to drink anything tonight. Just some H20 and a few sips of Matt’s beers to try. I actually did taste some wine and it was AWFUL! I am not a wine snob, but after a week in wine country I could tell such a difference in quality. Hope I am not turning into one!
Canada is here!
Hopefully they won’t end up like this like their younger selves did:
I left the partiers (who were headed back to campus to crash frat parties) to come home for this:
The Homewood Suites here in Davidson is AWESOME!!! Probably the best chain hotel I’ve encountered. Each room is almost like a mini apartment. We stayed here this spring for a wedding and I was so excited to come back.
The tiny but extremely function kitchen:
Hey check it out – our fridge here is the same as home! A few items and booze!
When we got into town I picked up a few yogurts, fruits and a milk for breakfast + coffee in the room
I also brought a ton of other breakfast supplies in our Envitote – can’t wait to dig in tomorrow AM!
Now I’ve got a Davidson bear to snuggle with!
