The four years that I spent at SMU changed me....and for the better. I was a shy girl when I left Peoria in 1990, but when I graduated...I was a much more confident social woman. What a wonderful gift...a paid college education in one of the largest cities in the US, and friends for a lifetime. Steve and I can only hope to provide our children with the same opportunity.

Following their party, Kay, Kris and I headed to Rustic for a party put together by some SAEs and Phi Delts, along with many Kappas. I had so much fun catching up with the guys, and meeting some of their spouses. Like myself, many people traveled alone which made for a lot of fun too because we didn't have to bore our spouses with small talk and reminiscing. After that party wrapped up, we headed to a favorite old college bar.

Saturday morning started off slow, but we weren't itching to do anything due to the cold weather. So we headed to Snuffer's for some greasy food and cheese fries!! Afterward, Kris and I went shopping for a bit and then came back to our room to relax and watch the Bama game while we got ready.
Lauren (KKG) and Trey (Phi Delt) co-host a tailgate, so we bundled up and headed to campus to finish watching the Bama game and watch the SMU Homecoming parade. When the sun was up, it wasn't too bad....but when the sun set it got SO COLD!! We were definitely not dressed warm enough (fashion over comfort isn't always the way to go). All I can say is thank goodness I purchased the down filled coat!
Kay left early Sunday morning, but Kris and I had a late afternoon flight out so we made the most of the day. We had lunch, visited the George W Bush Museum, and had a photo opp in front of the new Kappa house. A great ending to a fantastic weekend!
