Labor Day weekend is always move in weekend for the next batch of Tech bulldogs because school starts that next week. Well, since Hunter's baby brother is in that batch, we made a little trip out of it to go help him move in and get settled--and do a little reminiscing.

Do you remember those days? When you could be stupid and you really didn't have that much to lose? You didn't have enough money to invest a large amount into any of your escapades. You didn't have a job to lose. You were free. Man, we took those days for granted. We milked them for all they were worth, but at the same time, they flew by too fast. Now, all of our friends are married and popping out babies--us included! When did we grow up?!
While in Ruston, we were able to hit up the staples...The Dawg House of course; The BeeHive!!!; Hot Rod BBQ; The Tech Bookstore; The Dawg House again; and Johnny's pizza. We rode around town (it's amazing how you don't forget your way around...) and even got to take a picture--despite TS Lee--with Arabella Street's sign! I've had that name picked out for 5-6 years, and they built that little neighborhood our last year at Tech. I got so excited and really wanted to get a picture with it during our little visit!
|Yummy...best little restaurant in Ruston.|

Sadly and weirdly--but also really nice--that will be my last outing until Thanksgiving. We might make one more small day visit to Sulphur for a wedding reception at the end of the month. But other than that, I'm locked down in the Golden Triangle. We are such traveling people that the thought of staying at home for that many weeks (particularly weekends) is something I can't quite grasp! Three months of weekends at home?! That seriously has not happened since we've been married. We've been luck during those four years if we have two weekends at home back to back. But this little peanut will be here sometime in the next 8 weeks--and that is just nuts! So home I stay...and it's kind of a refreshing thought :)
