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!
