a century of coming home...

Homecoming at Mizzou is definitely one of my favorite things about being a Missouri Tiger. Columbia is mostly a college town so I love seeing this place blow up and have black and gold cover every inch. For those of you who don't already know Mizzou is the birthplace of the homecoming tradition! Our homecoming is the largest STUDENT RUN homecoming in the nation, and our homecoming blood drive is the Red Cross' largest donor. It's truly amazing to be a part of the 100th homecoming.

I spent most of the weekend with the roomie and the lovely Andie. Friday night was spent at the Campus Decs. Campus Decs (or House Decs, whichever you prefer) is hosted in Greek town. The sororities are paired with fraternities and each pairing makes a large decorated board that goes with a theme they have been assigned. Our theme was Birthdays!

On Saturday we have the Homecoming parade. This year it was at 8:30 a.m. and both the roommate and I slept through it by accident. But most importantly, Saturday was the Homecoming football game against the Iowa State Cyclones. We easily beat them, but the spirit of the game was what made it worth going for... and the free pom poms!

As for the Homecoming competition, the Homecoming banner I was a chair for WON 3rd PLACE!

On top of Homecoming already being an amazing weekend, the TEXAS RANGERS will be playing the ST. LOUIS CARDINALS in the World Series! Needless to say, as a Rangers fan I fear for my life on this campus... and in my apartment. So excited for the fun that will come from this rivalry.

Time to get back to the drawing homework. Until next time...
