VIP Cause you Know I Gotta Shiiiiiine {Despite the Rain}

Morning, friends! How you doin'? I'm alright, ready to kick Monday in the teeth and get after it this weekend. My weekend was the perfect mix of lots of stuff and chill time. There was a six hour ten to my alma mater, fun friend time on Sunday and a fabulous family reunion too. 

This weekend I… 

… stood outside in the pouring rain to watch my alma mater play soccer. We only lasted a half because it was so miserable. I'm quite thankful I didn't make Le Husband come down with me. I did send him this picture, though and missed him on the six hour total drive. #dontmissthecollegedrive #definitelyspedonthewayhome

… had an amazing time catching up with my fellow soccer girls. I can't believe I'm 10 years removed from being a collegiate soccer player, it feels like yesterday I was being run into the ground doing nightmares. We haven't had a lot of reunions and I've missed the last three because of Vegas so this one was a great one and I'm so glad I was able to make it down and catch up with everyone. #lovemyteam #nostalgic #missmycollegebody
OH what up CVAC CHAMPS!!!! #VIP
… taught my teammates the fabulousness of Perfect365 #gamechanger

… caught up with my dear friend and freshman year roommate. I haven't seen her since my wedding and it was SO AMAZING to spend 45 minutes catching up with her. I was incredibly blessed with roommates throughout college and I'm so glad she's still in my life. Hopefully we'll catch up more sooner rather than later.

… ate like a fat kid. Irish coffee to warm up? Check! Mcflurry to keep me company on the three hour drive home? Check! Egg-os as a gift from Le Husband because I hit an hour back up on the ride home? Double check! {oh my word, I normally don't like to whine about small things, but this back up was rage inducing. I'm so glad no one was in the car with me, I was going INSANE!} #ihatestupidtraffic #stoprubbernecking #drovelikeiwasinfastandfuriousaftertheaccident

… slept in because I was exhausted from Saturday.

… headed to a friends house for Sunday football food fest. It was delicious, despite the Cowboys' loss. :(

… WELCOMED BABYSPICE BACK FROM LONDON!!! She landed Sunday afternoon and it was soooooooo good to see her! We only got a taste of all of her pictures and I can't wait to hear more about her trip at our sister's dinner later this week. I'm glad she had an adventure but I'm even more excited to have her home. 

… played in a soccer game and had some pretty great defensive plays. #cheerstoawin

… skipped food prepping for blogging, cuddling and football.

How was your weekend? Can you believe it's almost October?

Molly Middleton said...

SO CUTE! How fun that you played college soccer…my sister is right now. I think it's so smart that you're still playing, I miss high school sports. And you got to meet up with friends?? And watch football?? Do weekends even get better?!

Shay from Great, Now What said...

Looks like quite the weekend! I got poured on during my run this weekend, so I feel ya. Have a dry week!

I'm sure it was so nice to see your sister and hear about her trip! Booo to the cold rain and bad traffic on your way home.

Illegally Blonde said...

So glad I was part of your drive, well the better part not that awful back up part. Yay she is home!! So jealous of her trip and it looks like she had a blast! Cowboys loss was heartbreaking, as on couldn't believe it... boo :(

Kathy@MoreCoffeeLessTalky said...

october is coming up way too fast!! by the time we know it, winter will be here. JUST NO.

not sure what it was this weekend but i was so exhausted every night and actually slept in (to 6am which is my "sleeping in").

Elle Sees said...

this month has FLOWN by! boo for watching sports in the rain, but yay for being supportive to your school and yay for your sis being back!!

Marie said...

A game in the rain sounds like no fun. I can't believe you stayed for a half, I would have lasted like five minutes. I hate being wet from the rain. I can't believe you drove six hours in one day. Glad you got time to catch up with friends.

Leslie said...

It looks like a wonderful weekend! How great that you were able to see all of your soccer teammates!

Kristin said...

Looks like a pretty perfect weekend, except for the rain! And now I'm basically dying for an Oreo McFlurry - thanks for that.

Darcy said...

How fun to get to catch up with so many of your old friends this weekend! Time with friends is seriously the best, and I love when you can reconnect with someone and just talk for hours!

Meg Taylor said...

I haven't had a McFlurry in forever - it looks soooo good! Sounds like a great weekend with old friends (even if you did have to stand in the rain haha!).

Traci Taylor Hart said...

College reunions are the best!! So glad you were able to make it back - wish the weather hadn't been so nasty for you though! And great call on the McFlurry to keep you company while driving - I need to remember that for my next solo roadtrip :) Happy Monday!

Julie said...

College get-togethers are fun, no matter what's going on - glad you had a good time despite the rain. I'm hoping to get my homecoming in a few weeks!

Stopping by from Mingle Monday :)

Ashley Brickner said...

That mcflurry - give me one now! Haha! And sounds like a great weekend, even with rain! :)

Jen said...

Glad you had fun despite the rain, have to make the most of it sometimes. :)

Cuddling is always more important than food prep!

ItsTheNewTwenty said...

"skipped food prepping for blogging"... hahaha story of my life!

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

I haven't had a McFlurry in so long and now that is all I can think of. Oh yes girl, my Sunday night was spent blogging, catching up and watching football. It was much needed for sure!

Erin LFF said...

SO awesome that you were able to reunite with all those gal pals of yours!!! :) It's crazy how far removed we are from college isn't it?! Ha- where is time going???

Foxy's Domestic Side said...

What a fun weekend, minus the whole traffic thing, I seriously hate traffic, especially rubbernecking! Arg. Glad that you're getting a sisters dinner in sooner rather than later to hear about the trip.

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I dealt with a backup this morning. Gurl. The rage. It was REAL. lol

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

Ugh this weather!! But of course you still look adorbs!!! Glad you had a blast!

Angie said...

Sounds like it was overall a good weekend. Ours was too, definitely no complaints here!

Trista @ The Classy Chaos said...

I CANNOT believe it's almost October. Complete craziness. That's really cool that you meet up with your soccer teammates after so long. I'm so sad to report I probably only know what a handful of my collegiate volleyball teammates are up to... :( Looks like you had a fantastic weekend and in case it makes you feel any better, I ate and ate and ate and ate. :)

Meghan @ Me as Meghan said...

Yay for your sister being back in the States! It must have been nerve-wracking having her abroad. Its a bummer that it rained for the soccer game, but its exciting that you got to catch up with your old teammates!
Its insane that its almost October...September seemed to fly. I am okay with that though.. I love the month of October and I am excited for its arrival (as long as it doesn't bring more rain haha!)

Bella said...

I love waffles and anything with blueberries!

Love your jersey! Go Cowboys!!

Looks like you had a fab weekend despite the rainy day.

Thanks for linkin' up!!
