Dallas' College Graduation!

 My cousin Dallas graduated from West Virginia Wesleyan College on Saturday, and I'm so proud of him!  WVWC is only 4.5 hours from DC, so I drove over to witness this momentous occasion.
The journey there was beautiful; lots of mountains and curvy roads to keep it interesting.
 I could tell we were in West Virginia by the decor.  I arrived just in time for a meal at Hillbilly Grill, where we indulged in deep fried pickles, $3.50 BLTs, and banana cream pie.  The pie had barely touched the table when Megs and I gobbled it up!
 My lovely companions for the weekend: Andrea, Grandma, Papa, Dallas, Thomas and Megs.
 He did it!  A college grad with a degree in business, minor in econ.  He's an impressive kid!
 Appropriate attire for a graduation: black Gap dress, Cooperative brown wedges, brown H&M belt, necklace from Goldfinch.
 Mom looked cute, too!
 After graduation, we hopped into the car (Megs and I were in the very back, where dogs and luggage usually reside)  with a couple bloody marys for a trip to Thyme Bistro for lunch.  It was tasty!
 Dallas took us by a winery on the way back to the college; there was even a winery dog!  We had some blackberry merlot, which was undeniably delicious!
 While looking for decorations for Dallas' graduation dinner, I found some great accessories at the Dollar Store.  Your outfit's not complete without goofy glasses!
 The drive home was equally lovely.
I had to stop to take a few photos by the side of the road.  We don't have sights like this in Florida!

  1. It was lovely to see you - we did have a good time. I loved our early morning run past the slip n slide in front of the KA House!
