Labor Day Weekend

I was in Morgantown for a long 3 day weekend for Labor Day and it was wonderful! I suppose that it might not seem like that big of a deal to everyone, but when you're in a long-distance relationship like Bobby and I are, 3 days together is heavenly. I drove in Friday night and we had dinner together--chicken pot pie, yum yum--and then just hung out...with his intense school schedule and my work, it was nice just to relax for an evening.

On Saturday we went to a tailgate sponsored by the dental school before the WVU football game and had free food (and I don't quite understand Bobby's obsession with getting a free meal, but I have come to accept it). We left from there to go watch the BYU game with some friends (and Bobby, I'm sure, doesn't quite understand my complete apathy to all things sports related, but he's come to accept it). It was wonderful spending time with Daniel and Katie and their new beautiful baby girl.

On Sunday we attended church and then invited Bobby's brother Xax and his fiancee Shannon over for Sunday dinner.



General silliness and laughter prevailed and I've had a great time getting to know both of them better.



Labor Day was definitely a rest from our labors as Bobby and I did a whole lot of nothing. We slept in, ate breakfast and finally got going around 11 and took Xax's dog, Mich, for a walk.



She's a big, slobbery, sloppy sweetheart and we had a lot of fun letting her run around and jump for sticks.



The trail we take her on is absolutely beautiful, and for all nature lovers out there (I emphatically raise my hand on that one), it makes for a lovely walk.



But alas, our 3 day weekend was doomed to end, and I began my drive back Monday night. I tell myself I'll leave early, but that gosh-darned-man-of-mine makes it so hard! I just enjoy the time we have so much and it makes leaving him that much harder. So needless to say, I only got 6 hours of sleep (I seriously need 8) and my eyes are buggy today and all I want to do is crawl into bed, but goodness, we had a great time!
