Labor Day Shenanigans

Labor Day weekend, for me, started Thursday afternoon. I headed back to my college town and when I arrived, I was surprised how much I missed it. Since I was trying to practice with traveling light, I didn’t bring my camera nor did I take many pictures.

Instead of being a good blogger I was…

working my ass off working the Friday and FOOTBALL SATURDAY double. I was so exhausted. But it paid off! When I wasn’t sweating my face off at work…

I was with friends


and making the ceremonial fountain walk as a graduate.

And food. Lots of food, of course.

And then on Monday, I helped my baby brother ask his just-about girlfriend out for Homecoming. Easily the most momentous part of the weekend.


One question: how is his handwriting STILL so bad as a high school senior??

It was a simple two-stop scavenger hunt. Their homecoming theme was superheroes so, of course…


(I drew that)

The scavenger hunt ended at the house where he would wait, wearing a Batman shirt.

But when we went to drop off the first clue and her Superman shirt at her house… he got caught. Oops.


But it all worked out. I think this photo is precious, but Arman chooses to make fun of my stalker tendencies. Although I will admit that many of these photos were taken while hiding. Undercover.

Funnily, she didn’t know she had to provide an answer. Kevin, my brother, stood there for a whole minute before asking nervously, “so… is that a yes?”

And then we celebrated with more food. Made by yours truly.


How was your Labor Day? Hope you all had a nice break from the grind! 

XO Michelle, freaking out about tomorrow.

    Ha! Yes, his handwriting is pretty bad. Also… yay for food! I don’t think you can have a proper labor day without food :)

      Any US holiday means the diet is completely shot. Not that I’m complaining…

    Hahahaha. That was such a humorous picture- if you didn’t know the backstory to it!

    Liking the new layout of the blog! You better be blogging away when overseas!

      Of course I’m going to! What’s the point of having a blog if people can’t stalk me abroad? Keep in touch, man :)
