Mom's Weekend 2008

This weekend our Mom's came to visit for some much needed mother-daughter bonding time. On Friday, we went to Deja Vu comedy club for the 'Full Impact' comedy team. The two comedians focused mainly on crowd interaction, even pulling some of the moms and girls up on stage! Afterwards, we went to the Elm Street Ballroom and The Upper Crust for a wine and dessert bar. The desserts were amazing, and there was even a chocolate fountain! Saturday morning, we were back at The Upper Crust for brunch, and girls also got the chance to visit the house. On the main floor we had vendors selling jeans, jewelry, and purses, and in the basement we had our annual silent auction. Mom's contribute items for the auction and all of the money comes right back to their daughters. We usually use the money to purchase something on our 'house wish list'. Although Columbia hasn't seen much sun the last couple weeks, we were blessed with gorgeous weather and most girls spent the afternoon shopping or out at the winery with their moms. The weekend was a great opportunity for moms to see the house, the campus, and meet all of their daughters' friends. Thanks for coming to visit us!
