Family Weekend Sophomore Year

My family rolled into Furman Friday afternoon and chaos and fun soon followed ! The car was crammed full of bags, all my fall clothes, endless amounts of snacks, and 2 little brothers exploding out of the car.

Family weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the entire school year! I hadn't seen my brothers or parents since move in and I couldn’t wait to spend some time with all of them (and go out for a nice meal where I didn't’ have to pay!!)

Friday night I was inducted into Phi Eta Sigma, an academic honorary society. It meant so much that my parents could be there to cheer me on! After the ceremony, we grabbed a quick dinner at our restaurant on campus and quickly headed to the Soccer game so my brothers could see a Furman game! Nick, my middle brother plays soccer so that was on the top of our to-do list.

Saturday we woke up and all met up for brunch with a few of my close friends and their families. We ate at a big country ham house and I think I ate my weight in biscuits….you think I’m kidding.

My sweet sister and roommate, Emilee! 

After brunch we continued our day of eating by making our way to the tridelt family tailgate. I got to meet everyone’s family and of course we had to take a million pictures. I ate my weight in food again. I have absolutely no doubt I gained 10 pounds this weekend.

btw I helped paint that banner with a few other girls on my hall, doesn't it look fabulous?

The tailgate ended right before the football game. After the game we were all sweaty and ready to change into fresh clothes so we ran back to the hotel so my family could change before making our way downtown to do a little shopping, eating, and ice cream!

Sunday morning we all met to go to church and have an early lunch before my family had to get back on the road and I had to get back to campus to get some homework done.

It was so much fun having them here for a few days and I’m already ready for fall break in 2 weeks to see them all again!

What did you do this weekend?


  1. Your dress is flawless! I'm so glad you had a great weekend!

    xoxo, SS


  2. Looks and sounds like you're having a blast! Congrats on Phi Eta Sigma. I attend community college so I am in Phi Theta Kappa and I enjoy it. Total opposite from sorority life, but just as cool.
