Every year George’s fraternity has a graduate weekend known as Pig Dinner and this year was a date year. If I remember correctly, they only allow dates every 4 years but I could be wrong. It was the 30th anniversary and there were probably over 200 graduates/brothers. We had a wonderful time and got to catch up with lots of friends.
We actually went up to Cookeville on Thursday evening. On Friday we ran errands around town and then Friday night we had dinner with 20ish friends from college at Chilis. I wish I would have taken the camera but I forgot. A couple of our good friends are expecting babies this summer so it was so much fun talking babies! After that we headed over to the Clarion Inn for the Donor Party but I didn’t make it too long. This girl is not in college anymore and likes to get in the bed early!
On Saturday I took the kids to my mom’s house for the very 1st time! George was playing golf with his fraternity brothers so it was just us. We all had a really good visit and Emma loves all of the toys that my mom had bought.
Then on Saturday night we headed to Pig Dinner while George’s parents took all the grandkids to listen to music and eat dinner. I had gone out earlier last week and splurged on a new dress/cardigan/shoes and just wasn’t happy about it. But after I put it on that night and got all fixed up I felt better. I got several compliments too which made me feel better. I loved seeing all of our Huntsville friends and friends from college. For a brief second I really missed our college years but it didn’t last long!
I am so glad we got to go this year and George’s parents were so wonderful to help out with the kids so much! We were really tired Sunday as we headed home but I managed to get everything unpacked & washed asap! I imagine this week we’ll just lay low and rest. Thank goodness the kids are getting over their colds too. Emma was horse all weekend and they have both been so snotty. We are ready for our 80 degree weather to come back!
Got to go run shower and get Emma ready for dance! Tuesdays are our busy day!
