Homecoming Weekend

What.  A.  Weekend.

Let's just say... Homecoming 1, us 0.  It's going to take a good week to recover from all the fun we had but it was totally worth it.  We had seriously THE best time and I'm so sad it's over!

The shenanigans started on Friday night with most of our friends arriving around 9pm.  Our last friend, Shannon, was supposed to get in about midnight and when she showed up, she brought a surprise with her... our friend Alex who lives in Oklahoma!  We obviously don't get to see her often and had NO idea she was coming so you can imagine our shock and excitement.  Most amazing surprise ever!  We ordered in pizza and spent the night just catching up and taking a few too many shots of Fireball before calling it at 4am.  I know, who am I?  I usually go to bed at 10pm!

Saturday morning came pretty early since we wanted to head out to tailgate on time.  Drinks and pictures in the front yard were a must before heading out for the day.


We love each other

Our first stop was a friends apartment right near campus.  It was the perfect warm up to our marathon day.



After a couple of hours, we decided to take a trip down memory lane... AKA Fraternity Village Drive.  We visited our sorority house that we lived in for two years and also Nick's frat house -- where him and I met for the first time! It's always so bittersweet to go back there... it just makes me thankful that I had such a great college experience.



So many good times getting ready in those bathrooms!


Since the football game had already long started, we figured we should make our way over to the field.  It was a bit of a walk through campus but the weather could not have been more perfect.  It was 65 degrees and sunny and we were actually hot.


We made it over to the football field but surprise surprise, never actually made it to the game.  I do know that we won though ;)  We stopped at the bar right across the street, University Roadhouse, and spent the next few hours eating and drinking.  They fence in the parking lot outside and let everyone go at it out there.  I seriously can't say enough how awesome the weather was for the end of October!  We got soooo lucky.





That's where my pictures end for the weekend but the rest of the night was spent downtown at the bars.  We never even took a break on Saturday -- we went from 10am to 1am.  The longest day but the best day!

Sunday = recovery mode.  I definitely can't party like I used to!  We had pizza for breakfast (Domino's will deliver as early as 10:30am, love them) and our friends hung around until the early afternoon.  I hate saying goodbye to them because we almost all live in different cities now so seeing each other is becoming less frequent.  I guess that makes these weekends all the more special now though.  Can't wait for the next one! :)

Hope you all had a great weekend, too!

  10. SO FUN! What a great bond you have with all these pretty ladies! Glad you had a good time. I totally know what you mean about not being able to party like we used to, stinks! It's just as fun, the recovering is just a little harder LOL. If you ever come to visit Alex in OK, you better hit me up. Just teasing. But really... ;)

  16. Looks like an incredible weekend with perfect weather! And I can't tell you how many times it was just more fun to hang out and drink somewhere around the stadium than actually going into the game. Good times :)

  19. I didn't know Dominos would deliver that early! Now if a restaurant would be reasonable and start delivering at 8 AM, that would be even better.
