4. THE THUPER THREE
I was reunited with the other 2/3 of the Thuper Three!! The Thuper Three was formed freshmen year; we lived across the hall from each other in Mac and were positively inseparable. And even though we three each got involved with different activities around campus, we have stayed supremely close friends. (And yes, I know; we really haven't changed much since this picture was taken four-ish years ago.)
3. BRIDAL SHOPPING
Julia wanted her three non-family bridesmaids to meet at 8:30 a.m. to go to Quincy for wedding dress shopping. It was way, way too early, but we certainly had fun! Fortunately for Julia, the other two bridesmaids are very knowledgable in the wedding department; Kaite got married this past summer, as did Marisa's sister, so I did not have to wholly reveal my utter ignorance over styles, necklines and cuts of wedding dresses.
I helped with toady tasks, made fun of heinous prom dresses, put wedding dresses back on their respective hanger, gave my opinion when needed and played guinea pig for dresses Julia wanted to see. I can't show you what Julia tried on, but here is Exhibit A:
|Socks and dress are matchy-matchy!|
Then, Exhibit B, the bridesmaid dress we all like:
|Imagine it in navy blue...|
2. HUMAN JUNGLE GYM/ HIDE-AND-GO-SEEKER
I spent lots of heavenly time with my second family...
|D's face is just classic!|
Hillsdale won the game!!!!
I saw so many wonderful people-- really, too numerous to mention-- and am glad I was able to go back to see professors and students alike whom have become such dear friends and people to me.
"May the earth be better and heaven be richer because of the life and labor of Hillsdale College."
