I graduated from college more than a few years ago, but this weekend was the first time I participated in any Homecoming activity. I don't live too far from my alma matter, but I tend to get too caught up in life and its obligations to enjoy homecoming festivities. I decided to attend an activity this year because three of my blogger friends are also graduates of the University of Delaware, so it was a great excuse for a blogger get-together.
We chose to meet up for Blue Hens on Main where we donned our complimentary alumni scarves and headed out for a late evening of junk food and drinks. I remember Latoya from college, but Bernadette and Hillary were new friends (although we all read each other's blogs).
|Latoya, Hillary, Bernadette, and me|
|The Blue Hen Cocktail (blue curacao, coconut rum, pineapple juice) was the signature drink.|

|E was the only guy in the group, hope we didn't drive him crazy!|
The following day Nadette, Hillary, and Latoya came over to my house where we enjoyed some bacon macaroni and cheese (the best I've made, so I'll need to update that recipe).
|Zelda just wouldn't look at the camera!|
|Zelda and Milo loved Hillary... I'm sure her dogs will love knowing their mommy was hanging with other pups!|
