Another back story: Bryan was here before College Station, but they built my university, Texas A&M, slightly outside of the town of Bryan in 1871. Oh, also, TAMU was the first public university in Texas, don't listen to those silly Longhorn's when they say they were the first, nope, that was us. It's pretty cool actually, if you've ever really paid attention in your U.S. history class, the Morrill Act, that was signed into law by Abraham Lincoln to establish land grant universities is the reason Texas A&M is here, thanks Abe! Anyway, there was a college in the middle of no where Texas, with nothing around it but a train station and train tracks, what would you name such a place once it started growing a little bit? College Station, duh! Okay, so maybe it isn't the most original name ever, but I thought it was a pretty cool story.. and it goes along with my train station adventure.I didn't take these photos at the exact train station I'm talking about above, but I'm taking some of my bridal pictures there (which are today by the way!) so I didn't want to ruin the surprise in my bridal pictures by taking some regular old outfit post photos there first. I'm definitely going back after my bridals though! But, in the mean time, this awesome old building, which used to be a feed building, will have to do. I'm pretty sure this was the docking station for trucks and whatnot. I also spotted some more places that'd be fun to take photos, so we'll see if I can keep this adventurous spirit up.
Maybe I went picture crazy? Sorry I'm not sorry. I would've taken some more pictures of downtown Bryan, but it got a little too dark and everything was kinda blurry without flash. Also, I didn't really want to walk around because the back of my pants were covered in dusty dirt stuff from sitting down.. note to self, don't sit down on old wooden floors in light colored pants for post pictures, it's probably not the smartest idea.. #bloggerproblems
I had some serious problems with keeping this shirt tucked into my pants.. does anyone have any advice on keeping shirts tucked in? I'm so used to wearing it with a high waisted skirt with it, so I didn't even think about it when I first put it on in the morning.
