What a weekend!
Well, I don't even know where to start. This weekend was filled with so much fun and excitement and partying and all types of celebrations. I suppose I should just start at the beginning.
Friday was Jeremy's big day. His brother, Matt, flew in from Columbus, Ohio that morning and a bunch of his friends came in from Houston to support him. Moose, Tim, Albert, Chad, Ron, and Buzz all made the trip, and we were joined by Christina and Justin who live here in town. At 3pm he began his PhD dissertation defense, and by 4:30pm he was congratulated by his committee. I suppose he's not officially a doctor yet, but for all intents and purposes, he is. After the presentation we all headed out to Crown and Anchor for some beers and cheers. This was followed by some Mingo Fishtrap at Threadgills and some late night snacks at Magnolia.
Saturday was met with even more fun as we continued to celebrate Jeremy's PhD, and now also my birthday! We started the day with some lunch at this place downtown called Leaf. If you've never been there before, I suggest you check it out. We also took some time to play mini golf and take a nap before the evening began. At this point everyone from Houston had gone back, but Adam and Liza came up to spend the night with us. The five of us went out to dinner at South Congress Cafe and then met up with some more of my friends at Pete's Piano Bar and then Brown Bar. It was such an awesome night, and thanks to all my friends who helped to make it so special. Check out the pictures on facebook.
We rounded out the weekend celebrations on Sunday with a trip to the Saltlick, after some much needed morning exercise. The Chomel's, Strawser's and Leblond's met us there for some BBQ and Cake that Adam and Liza had gotten for us. We also stuck around afterward to listen to some live music.
Thank you again to all my friends and of course Jeremy for making this such a great weekend! We had so much to celebrate and we were both so happy that you all were there.
