Kelly and I have now been to Oxford, Mississippi twice.  Whenever we travel, he typically arranges all our travel details.  I prefer just to show up with a suitcase and follow his lead.  He always has a list of restaurants he wants to check out.  In fact, I think our trips are pretty much built around where we’re eating.  It’s pretty rare that we would visit the same restaurant twice because we prefer to try a lot of different places.  Ajax Diner is a welcome exception to this rule.  Before travelling to Oxford, whenever we mentioned our upcoming trip, we were consistently asked one question, “So, where are you eating?”  With limited time and an endless amount of amazing options in town, it’s definitely a fair question.   Continue reading Ajax Diner

It was another wonderful weekend with our sweet puppy Mearl.  We had the perfect day on Sunday with my mom-in-law, Auburn, and my sister-in-law, Ashley.  They were so sweet to bring many presents for both Mearl and the cats, and Mearl had an excellent day playing with them.  I’m so glad to have had them visit, first of all, to catch up, but also because I want to continue to socialize our little pup.  She loved her new toys that her Gigi brought her, and they seem to be her new favorites.  Aunt Ashley got her the most adorable dress ever.  It’s a teeny bit big, but if she keeps eating like she has been, she’ll be in it in no time!

I decided it was finally time to start my series of posts about our trip to Oxford, Mississippi.  These will be interspersed with my regular updates over here so it may take several weeks to get them all up here.  I’m also thinking of going back and adding posts and reviews from some of the things we did from our first trip to Oxford.  It’s one of my favorite places so there’s certainly always something else for me to go on and on about from that charming town.   Continue reading Graduate Oxford
