Coming Home

My heart was in it’s happy place this weekend- at Ouachita Baptist University.  I spent four wonderful years there making so many memories.  Homecoming is one of my favorite times of year.
We arrived in town Friday night.  We usually just stayed with my parents 45 minutes away, but since they moved, we had to get a hotel and stay in town.  So Friday evening, we had dinner at my favorite local Mexican place…and then we walked around campus.
Tyler and I had our first long talk one-on-one on campus down by the river back in 2007.  This picture was in that same spot (it’s dark, so you can’t tell…but we were in the same spot!)
 Saturday morning, we headed to campus for the homecoming teas.  It was raining, so instead of being outside, they were in the conference center.  I LOVED these adorable chi cookies!
I got to meet some of my Tri Chi family…such sweet girls.  I felt SO old.   I’m pledge class 2006, and some of these girls are PC 13!
These were the only PC 06 girls I saw… so good to catch up with these friends.
I also got to visit with some girls who were a couple years ahead of me.  It’s funny – in school, it meant so much more that I was younger than it does now! ha!
It was raining, so instead of going to the OBU football game, we headed to a local sports bar to watch the OU game and the Razorback game (both were horrible losses…but at least the food and company were good).
I love these girls.  Alden, me and Megan were good friends at school (and me and Megan are Alden’s MOHs), and Mallorie is a new friend.  She just got engaged to our great friend Bryce…so now she’s one of the girls! 🙂
 Between Tiger Tunes shows, we hung out on campus to see friends.  Got to see our little sis Jessie! This is three generation of Tri Chi family! 🙂 
 Tiger Tunes was great!  My sweet Tri Chis were “Under the Sea” and they put on a super cute show. They won 4th place!
Tyler’s club, Kappa Chi, were newsboys…and they got 2nd place.  A great show!
I had an extra special experience.  In 2006, I was a Tiger Tunes Hostess.  I got to perform in between the clubs.  It was one of my favorite college memories.
They had a Host and Hostess reunion performance, and they invited us all back on the JPAC stage.  Unreal!  I got to perform with a couple guys who were hosts with me in 2006 – Justin and Kirt.  LOVED that we could all do this together again.
It was so fun to be back on the stage with some friends at my alma mater.

We headed home today and I’ve been napping, cleaning, and food prepping this afternoon.  It’s always great to be back on campus.  So many memories and so many wonderful friends.  It was a fabulous weekend.

  1. Glad y’all had such a good weekend! Homecoming and seeing old friends is always so fun. Whenever we drive into Searcy I get all those sentimental, college feelings back lol.

    P.S. I didn’t think the OU game was such a horrible loss 😉

  2. We love going to homecoming at UCA. I was in the pledge class of ’99 so all of the new girls always make me feel way old!

  3. Loved this! I’m gonna go one day! Glad you had fun!

  4. You may have had poor stage placement for Tyler’s picture, but you definitely made the live cast! It was a great show!
