Oh man – eight and a half hours of sleep two nights in a row did me right this weekend! How did I get all this blissful sleep you ask? Well, I ditched the family and headed to Auburn for a sorority reunion. Sleeping in a hotel room by myself – well, what can I say? It was glorious.
The weather at Samford Hall? Also glorious.
Friday night a group of us went to a swank party at a local alumni’s house. If it wouldn’t have been completely gauche I would have taken pictures. Kids, it was straight up out of a Pinterest dream.
The party was so nice. Marguerite is in the white. She’s an includer. Whatever Spell Check includer is totally a word. She includes people. Do you have a ride? Want me to pick you up? That’s Marguerite. A group of us sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather.
On a negative note, I’ll say – those girls that were snotty in college? Yeah, still snotty. The exciting thing is I no longer care. College is pretty fun without the drama…pretty fun with it too.
The next morning we toured the new dorm – yes I said dorm. In Auburn, sororities aren’t allowed to have houses. It’s a thing. A stupid thing but a thing. Don’t get me started.
Let me tell you the new dorms make our old dorms look like roach motels. Each person has their own room, you only have to share a bathroom with one other person and theres a kitchen and a living room! Sheesh, no wonder college is so expensive these days.
Before the dorm tour I stopped at University Donut to have a salad…or a doughnut I can’t remember which one.
This adorable couple was there recapping their nights. Clearly they were friends and not dating due to the fact that they were telling each other about their bad dates the night before. What was also clear was that they should be dating. I thought about intervening but managed to hold myself back.
It kinda reminded me of that Driscoll sermon series (yes, I know he’s very much out of fashion now but this was legitimately funny) he did on marriage. He was using the book of Ruth and kept saying ‘look for a guy that loves God and look for a girl that gleans well.’ So, the next week these two people show up and the guy is wearing a t-shirt that says ‘loves God’ and the girl is wearing a t-shirt that said ‘gleans well.’ So, these two best friends had gone and had these custom t-shirts made. It was adorable. He looks at them and says ‘so you guys are dating?’ ‘Nope, we’re just best friends.’ ‘See me after the service. We need to change that.’ He then rags on them about why they aren’t dating.
Well, that’s what I felt like doing to this couple. Hopefully they’ll come around without my intervention.
Speaking of interventions I may need one because you know what else I did Saturday? Saw TWO movies in the theatre! My cousin BayLee and I saw The Great Wall and then I saw LalaLand.
What can I say? The absolute freedom I had this weekend went to my head.
