Heaven is a place off of Exit 118 B (on Interstate 81)

This past weekend Ryan and I made the 6 hour drive to spend some time with friends at my favorite place in the whole entire world...Virginia Tech. Seriously, life is so much better with maroon and orange fire hydrants and hokie bird images everywhere. Since my husband chose to go to another Virginia university, you'll notice that his image is conspicuously missing from the majority of the photos below.

It was such a wonderful weekend despite the crazy un-summery weather (high 60s and rainy), and we had a great time catching up with everyone. I'm really hoping that we can get down again this fall for a football game. The hubs still has yet to experience game day in Blacksburg, which is just totally unacceptable after 4 years together. Fingers crossed we can make it happen this year!

Exit 118-B to Blacksburg. Ironically, UVA is also located off of an Exit 118-B. My exit is better.

The waiter suggested a prom pose, and we actually obliged. This picture will make me snort milk out of my nose when I stumble upon it 5 years from now. I just know it.

College pride is still carrying your student i.d. 6 years after graduation.

VT pose in front of Lane Stadium. SO EXCITED for football season!

Thumbs UP.

We spent one afternoon enjoying the golf course on campus. I like this picture because it shows off the hubs' sexy arms. Seriously, hugs with those arms make me forgive his school choice.

Happiness is riding in a VT golf cart with one of your best friends!

I may or may not have jumped up and down like a 13 year old girl watching Twilight for the chance to drive the VT golf cart.

Heart. Virginia Tech.

Heart. Fist Pump. Virginia Tech.

Thanks for welcoming us back VT!

This picture was taken for the sole purpose of showing off the maroon and orange skirt I found in a Target (in Delaware) a week earlier. We're taking over the world...

So sad to leave

Asleep on the ride home in my brand new hokie colored Phillies hat. Best purchase EVER.

Until we meet again Virginia Tech....GO HOKIES!

110% agree about exit 118B. I am so jealous of your trip down. I don't think that we have been since football season! Agh!

PS- I still carry my ID as well (only 3 years after graduating). Gotta get on the BT for free somehow! (Plus I can borrow my sister's student football ticket then!)

Our journey has begun!… secretly though

If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

Exciting things going on around here!

I'm an occassional follower of your blog, and a fellow Hokie ('05), and completely agree that heaven is right off Exit 118B and there is no better place in this entire world than Blacksburg, Virginia!!!!!! Your post made me nostalgic! (and of course I still have my ID!) :-)

I knew we were made to be friends....I still rock my hokie passport in my wallet. Yeah Rutherford!!
