Fall 2012: Doggy Date in New Orleans

In Mid-October, the three of us drove to New Orleans to meet up with our friends Samantha, her mom Carolyn, and Sam's puppy Maggie at a dog park. 
Kenny was excited about the road trip.  Although when we hit bad traffic and were stuck on the freeway for  awhile, all he wanted was to be on my lap - he didn't like being stuck in the back. 

Kenny & Maggie

She's so pretty.
Kenny and Maggie hit it off okay, they were fine in the park but back at Carolyn's house Kenny got a little scared for a bit so we had to keep them separated.  But after awhile they both calmed down and were able to co-exist while we had a nice dinner together.  It was a fun visit :-).

Fall 2012: Stanford Homecoming

I attended my 5* year reunion at Stanford, which was very fun and totally worth the trip.  All pictures except for last one were shamelessly stolen from friends:

We had a girls' dinner at Reposado, in downtown Palo Alto, before the Class Party

beautiful fall game day and tailgate

Awesome seats - thanks Juls! 
* technically it has been 6 years since I graduated a year early but I opted to stay with class of '07 for reunions since I know more people from that class.

Fall 2012: Louis's Visit in September

*this is the first in a series of brief recaps from our Fall - 
backdated to correspond with the time the events took place*

In September Louis came to visit and go to an Alabama football game with us, against Ole Miss.  It was a fun, albeit very tiring day trip to and from Tuscaloosa, along with a visit with Kenny and meals at Cracker Barrel, Moe's and Waffle House.  

For the two of us, it was great to have a visitor from home and a close friend to catch up with for an entire weekend. We were sad to see him go - but perhaps he will come back for Mardi Gras! (hint, hint) 

Obviously, someone was happy to see Uncle Louis.

We pre-gamed at the Houndstooth, one of the big bars in T-Town. 

Our seats were pretty good, not cheap, but good.

Kenny was sad to see him leave.  Louis was probably less sad, since he had an allergic reaction to him  on Sunday.
