Once upon a time Ms. Christy Jane Millweard (Thelma) and Emily Ann Rau (Louise) were just two college grads on a mission to enjoy the adventures of that crazy time between earning a degree and actually using it. Their previous endeavors include navigating Southern California (without a GPS!), tearing up Vegas alongside the J-School's crazziest professors (yes you, Randy and Stacey), and painting the town of Dallas red, white and blue for a weekend as spectacular as the Independence Day fireworks.
The latest and craziest plan? Meet in Atlanta and road trip back to Dallas in our newly acquired, hot tamale-red Porsche. (Okay, so the car isn't exactly ours to keep, but it is our home for the week until the keys land in Papa Millweard's pocket.) On the way, we'll make some Pella-inspired pit stops in Mobile, New Orleans, Baton Rouge and possibly Shreveport. Then it's on to Dallas and Austin to cheer on the one-and-only T.J. Millweard as he gives Tony Romo a run for his money as the best QB in Texas.
No guarantees that we will meet a Brad Pitt look-alike (although he has been spending a lot of time in New Orleans lately...), or have any run-ins with the police, but we aren't ruling anything out. So, whether you're one of our classmates wishing you weren't waking up at 1 AM to work the morning show, or just our parents, wondering why you unleashed us on the South, keep up with the blog this week for daily updates from life on the road with Thelma and Louise.
Thanks for reading!
