16. Visit Carlin in college
We had a great visit to JMU this weekend! We got there at around noon yesterday and then went to the Dukettes' tailgate. It was Octoberfest themed, yum. We then went to watch Carlin dance at the game. The Dukes lost in overtime, which sucked, but the Dukettes looked great :) The one big downside to my parents' seats is that it's in the first row by the stairs, and people just walk right in front of the seats like there isn't another set of stairs RIGHT THERE for them to walk up that doesn't involve them stepping in front of people. Seriously, we'd put up streamers as little barriers and people would walk right through them. SO. RUDE.
Anyway, after the game we went to Ruby Tuesday then back to Carlin's place. She rents this really cute little townhouse and she has the entire bottom floor, so we stayed on a futon in what's basically her living room. We watched The Nightmare Before Christmas before heading to bed.
In the morning we hit Panera for breakfast. The Dukettes had a carwash, so John and I hit some wineries while Carlin was busy with that. We went back to CrossKeys, which was awesome because 1. they have great wine and 2. there was a wedding there today, which got me all jazzed up for next month's weddings. We also went to Bluestone Winery, which is new this year and pretty nice. We liked it. After we wrapped up there, we went back to campus and had our car washed, then went back to Carlin's place to watch some TV before heading back. It was a great weekend, thanks for having us, Carlin :)
