A Weekend in Aggieland

Home sweet Aggieland. Oh how I missed you so! What a wonderful weekend spent with great friends and amazing family in one of my favorite Texas towns. I’m so happy that I got to spend the weekend with Kristin since I hadn’t seen her since June!

Friday we arrived in College Station in the evening, just in time to meet all of our friends at the tailgate house, then head out to Grub Burger for Alison’s birthday dinner! {P.S. If you’re even in C-Stat, this restaurant is yummy! Gourmet burgers that aren’t greasy, sign me up! Plus you can sub for any type of meat patty and they have monthly specialty burgers…end burger rant.} After dinner, everyone else went out dancing, we went home. It was already past nine and I had to be up at 5:00am. This girl needed her beauty rest.

5:00am rolled around and the hubs and I were out the door by 5:30am. Then this happened…

…yep, you guessed it. I ran 16 miles. The hubs ran 10 so I got to enjoy the presence of his company for the first 5 miles. Luckily, that’s when I needed him the most because it was so cold and dark! After he turned around, I really had my momentum going and felt great! A few hours and 16 miles later, I had run from the Gougler’s house, all around campus, watched the sunrise over Kyle Field, dodged a few cars who weren’t paying attention and conquered my run. Best run I’ve had in weeks. **Grady, if you’re reading this, I didn’t mean to go so fast! I just felt great…which I haven’t been able to say in quite a while :)**

After my run it was time to head up to Spence Park to tailgate!

As always, our tailgate was a super success! Top left, Kristin and I in front of the Aggie bus…I’m chugging Powerade at this point 🙂 Top right, Tyler doing his awesome popping and locking. Bottom right, snaggin’ a pic with the most handsome man I know! **I’m a little biased** Bottom left, Aggie Band at halftime! Best part of the game!

It was definitely an interesting game. A slow start led to a strong finish! We left at the end of the third quarter when the score was 47-0 Aggies. After that our 2 & 3 string came in and the game ended with a solid victory for the Ags: 47-28. I love winning 🙂 We hung out at our tailgate for another 30 minutes before heading back to the Gougler’s after game party.

It’s safe to say that Kristin and I were party poopers. She was getting sick and I was physically and mentally drained. We went to bed at 9:00pm on the dot. Sunday morning everyone was asking us if they woke us up, apparently everyone was shouting at the games. Neither of us heard a thing. We were le tired.

Of course I was up at 6:45am since I went to bed so early! I was able to enjoy a nice cup of coffee outside (top left) while watching the pups before everyone work up. Top right, my wonderful birthday present from Kristin {remember we haven’t seen each other since her birthday in June!} Our Sunday was perfectly uneventful 🙂 We watched football, I went for a 3 mile jog because it was too pretty outside not to run and we all snuggled on the couch. Bottom, the pups were completely exhausted from a weekend of playing hard and so were we. Nothing better that a lazy Sunday after a crazy Saturday if you ask me!

I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend! I’m looking forward to my two day work week! Happy Monday {Thursday} y’all! Don’t forget to link up!

Until next time…
With love and God bless,
