Date 9: Home Sweet Homecoming!

Day: Saturday, 10/15/11
Type: Casual
Cost: $$
Planned By: Dani & Adam

This passed weekend was Ohio University's homecoming. We had to go back considering it was our first year out of college. Instead of planning a date for this week we just decided to use homecoming as our date since we knew we'd spend all our time together. We got there on late Friday night so the homecoming festivities were already over for the day. There was still a lot to do on Saturday.

We woke up at 6 to have breakfast and mimosas with our friends. We had a good time talking while eating and getting ready for the day. We headed up town around 9AM to get ready for the parade. Of course all the bars were already open to celebrate.
We went out on the street at about five minutes until 10 to get a seat and watch the parade. It was pretty cold out and I didn't bring a jacket. We only stayed on Court St. to watch the Marching 110 then moved to a warmer location to watch the rest.

We walked down the street to our warmer spot. It's one of my sorority sister's apartments and she was very kind to let us hang out there for the remainder of the parade. The rest of the parade was supposed to be floats, but I was surprised and very angry to find out that Greek floats were no longer in the parade and that they all just made banners. The parade was a little less exciting than in the past without the floats. There was a really awesome balloon display and the alumni band was fun to watch!

After the parade we went back to Court St. to see some more of our friends.

We also went to my sorority's alumnae brunch. We got some free food and saw some more friends. It was nice seeing the changes they have made in the house. It looks good. We got Chipotle for lunch and then went to the game. We actually only went to the game for the second quarter and half time. We lost. :(
After the game we spent the rest of the night with our friends. It was great being back and we finally felt like alumni. For the first time is wasn't as sad to leave on Sunday. We are still very excited for our next visit to OU, but it was a great weekend! :)
