I left Boone on Wednesday afternoon around 3:30pm headed for home, and after making a quick stop at my favorite consignment shop, I got there around 6pm.
Beautiful leaves along the way!
During my drive, I realized that I'd gotten an email from Appalachian saying that I had been voted onto Appalachian's Homecoming Court! I knew that I was nominated to be put on the ballot, but had no idea I had any chance of making it on the court. What an honor! The top 8 guys and 8 girls were chosen to be on the court and able to come out on the field during the Homecoming game! I'm so excited to represent Alpha Phi & Appalachian. I could care less if I win, I'm just so honored to be a part of it. When we got nominated they took our picture to put online...
I finally got home and my mom had hot homemade vegetable soup waiting for me!
Brownies after dinner? Yes, please!
I spent my beautiful Saturday in Chapel Hill. My friend Patrick goes to UNC and he invited me to come up to the football game on Wednesday afternoon, yet another surprise. We had so much fun tailgating and going to the game.
Loved this ice cream with blue and white sprinkles!
After hearing about Homecoming, my mom and I were on a mission to find a black and gold outfit. We searched high and low in 3 different towns and found nothing! Apparently yellow/gold is not a very popular color this season! On Sunday, we headed to our last stop, the Tanger Outlets about an hour from my house. I finally found a black dress that I loved at the Vineyard Vines outlet store! We snatched it right up and for additional 30% off thanks to Tanger's Powerful Pink Card that supports breast cancer research. The dress isn't on their website, but I'm super excited to show you the pictures after Saturday.
We also found a great pearl necklace from the J.Crew Outlet and saved 25% with the Pink Card! I thought this added the classic elegance that I love!
It looks a lot like this one!
This week I have Alpha Phi's annual Homecoming Function on Friday and the Homecoming game on Saturday! Pictures soon! Yay for an amazing fall break:)
