Catching up (w Friends and a blog posting)

This blog is a few weeks late…sorry.  But I want everyone in the world to know that I truly am one of the luckiest girls ever!  Well you see, not only do I have a wonderful fiancé and absolutely amazing family, one of the most well behaved dogs you’ll ever meet and truly enjoy my line of work, I have some of the best friends in the world.

These are the lovely ladies that I met in college and here we are 3 ½ years later and we still take the time to see each other a couple of times a year.  It’s never easy getting to see one another, because we live all up and down the east coast.  So when we can accomplish the miracle of miracles where our schedules line up it’s always a good time.

This year we made it to our Alma Mater, East Carolina University, for the Oct 1 football game against the Tarheels.  We all stayed in Amy and Sean’s house and it was tight to say the least.  But we made it work and had some adventures along the way.

So here a couple of the highlights:

Stacey is now fully aware that sleeping on the couch is a bad idea: Jason and I slept on the air mattress beside her and we wake up at 7 am at the latest

Going to your favorite bar from when you when in college sounds like a fantastic idea.  Until you realize you have arrived at the bar so early they aren’t even charging a cover yet, you’re the oldest people there and showing up in jeans and a comfortable yet cute top was cute 3 years ago, but now, not so much.  Dresses and heels are the norm.

The UBE is beyond crowded on game day when tailgating doesn’t start until 3 pm

When you think you are at a standstill in the trip to the tailgate field, just tailgate wherever you’re at.  Like someone’s front yard

9 people, two cornhole boards, 3 coolers, 6 chairs, a couple of cameras and bags will all fit into a Yukon.  However, a Yukon cannot be successfully maneuvered out of a blocked parking space with only 4 foot of total clearance

Some people like to share, a lot.  Sometimes sharing is not necessary.  Fart biscuits can forever remain in the possession of the original owner from here on out.

Corn hole bags will not stay in tack during rigorous play if they are not stitched properly.

Asking a UNC fan if they want to lick your feet is not nearly as funny if you haven’t stepped in the muddy waste area near the port a johns.

Wrangling 9 people to stay together for the entrance to the football game is impossible.

When you jump to the front of the line as some line-cutters like to do…you are part of the problem for the rest of us.  Not the solution.

It doesn’t matter how long we have to get ready for the tailgating to begin, we will still be late

Watching the Pirates get beat badly is a lot easier to swallow when you have friends like these:

Here are a few more totally awesome pics for your viewing pleasure:

All My Love,
