I’m Going Back to College… Again!

back to college


Unlike when I went “back to college” visiting Meredith her senior year at Indiana, for a fun-filled weekend with no university or sorority/fraternity planned activities,  Back to College, this weekend I am attending my first “Mom’s weekend”…and I cannot wait!  I was unable to attend Parent’s Weekend last fall, so this is my first time heading to Miami U for the weekend to visit Patrick and Mary.   Yup, I’m planning on having the Best. Weekend. Ever!  It will be pretty hard to top my time at IU with Mer and the Dunn-Honeys, but I’m up to the challenge!  Truly, the weekend with Mer and her friends,  You can take a girl out of college…., was darned near perfect, complete with a Make Your Own Bloody Mary Bar!

Terry and the Dunn Honeys




Well perfect, except for that time I “allegedly” was dancing on a bar, which was turned into a blog, Clearly you’re not speaking to me?  The problem with such an “act” or such a post, is people tend to remember it.  And memories are triggered when videos are brought up on a cell phone, (remind me to get that video and DELETE) and shared with family members.  Hence, I received this text when talking about my upcoming weekend:

Stay off the tables.  Nobody wants to see a woman with limited dancing acumen putting on a show…unless she has an open bar tab of course.

Uhm, Ouch!  Of course I indicated those are Fighting Words.  “Limited dancing acumen”, does Not even remotely resemble me nor my dancing abilities.  I mean, really?  I’m nothing if I’m not a dancer. 🙂  And then (yes, there’s more) I was possibly challenged to a “Dance-off”, and told it would be a Lose-Lose.  So not!


Moving forward and looking ahead, I shall behave like the Mom…”Young mom”…of a college freshman who happens to have pledged a Fraternity, which is why I get to go to this Mom’s Weekend!  We certainly don’t want to give anyone any ammunition and I have 3 more years to make more memories for more blogs!  That’s a win-win!


Song of the Day:  I love Rock and Roll by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts…. ooh, makes me wanna get up and dance! Uh-oh!

I saw him dancin’ there by the record machine
I knew he must a been about seventeen
The beat was goin’ strong
Playin’ my favorite song
An’ I could tell it wouldn’t be long
Till he was with me, yeah me,
An’ I could tell it wouldn’t be long
Till he was with me, yeah me, singin’


Happy Birthday to my brother Luke.  One of the nicest people I know and I’m proud to be your sister!  And Happy belated Birthday to my sweet, beautiful sister, Megan.  I’m proud to be your sister too.  🙂

Truly cannot wait to hang with these 2…and others of course, but mainly these 2!  Best. Weekend. Ever!


Sunny and 70’s.  Can. Not. Wait!







Go Blackhawks!!


Thanks Jules!  Love this!!




  1. Have a great time and dance all night! I just did my first Moms Weekend last weekend…it was so much fun! My one piece of advice is to wear comfy shoes that you don’t care that much about….lots of sticky floors!
