As I had mentioned on Friday, I spent my weekend in Tuscaloosa.
Here's the recap complete with photos!
(sorry for the quality of some)
A trip to Tuscaloosa is not official until you visit Bryant-Denny Stadium. Can't wait to head up again this Fall for game days! 18 days until kick-off! Roll Tide, everyone! :)
Food. An important part of any weekend! Almost every place I tried this weekend was new to me. Tuscaloosa has changed so much in just a year. A friend and I were talking that one day we are going to come back and the city is going to be completely different, so much that we won't really know it anymore. Just another reason why we keep visiting our beloved college town.
Friends. The most important part of any weekend! It literally has been a year since I have seen these people. I graduated in the spring of 2012 and moved to California that fall, so the last time I saw most of them was last summer before I left. The weekend kept getting better and better as more friends came into town. It was great catching up and learning what everyone was up too.
Now for the food and friends!
|| FRIDAY NIGHT ||
Hokkaido. I never got to eat at the old Hokkaido (destroyed in the tornado). We sat at the grill and the food was super yummy. I even caught a piece of chicken in my mouth thrown by our chef...on the first try!
After dinner: We went back to my friend's house for good old fashioned sleepover. We hung out around the pool and the hot tub, stayed up late talking, and slept in late the next morning.
|| SATURDAY ||
Chick-fil-a. This place is definitely not new to me. But, it had been too long since I had one of those delicious chicken sandwiches and sweet tea.
DePalma's. Saturday night we had a girl's night where we got dressed up and fancy for a night out. This was another place I hadn't been before. I started off with a Caesar salad. Then, I got Pasta Primavera: sauteed zucchini, squash, roasted red peppers, and red onions topped with alfredo sauce and served on a bed of spinach fettuccine (with garlic bread of course). Also, some of the girls and I split a bottle of wine. Delicious!
|| SUNDAY ||
The day started out with church that morning where I got to see a couple more friends and my college minister and his wife who are expecting another baby! I met up with one of my friends that I lived with in New Orleans and we had some great Thai food! That night a friend and I went to see one of our friends lead worship at a new church he goes too. Later, we all hung out with some of the guys at their apartment followed by a Sonic run for tater tots and half-priced milkshakes. The night ended with saying goodbyes and see you later's and me back on my friend's couch for one more night until I headed back home Monday morning.
And that concludes my weekend recap!
Hope you all had a great weekend.
