Weekend Recap & Blog Award

Today I can sum up my feelings in about two words: happy + exhausted. Not bad, right?

Here's a little bit about my weekend up in Pennsylvania!

  • Drove to D.C. with Momma. I absolutely love D.C. and I miss going there for visits. We've already planned our next trip there for my birthday!
  • Hopped on the Megabus and headed to Philly with a pit stop in Baltimore. I definitely recommend the Megabus for a cheap alternative to driving somewhere. It goes to a lot of major cities, and as long as you have someone there to pick you up, it's great!
  • Scoped out the Lehigh Valley Mall - picked out some Phillies gear and spent lots of time looking at all the new Vera :) Poor SB...however, I did make him laugh because he said something about Vera Bradley would be the death of him and clear out his bank account and I responded with..."There are outlets :)"
  • Dinner at Red Robin! (yummmmmmmmm)
  • Homework time while SB played baseball
  • Shopping trip at The Promenade Shops (an outdoors mall) - we got some big deals at Old Navy. BOGO 75% off! Mix n match throughout the store. I love having a super smart boyfriend because he thought to go through the line with the expensive items first to get more of a deal...he's so sneaky...but where's the fun unless you can cheat the system? Haha, whoops! Don't tell!
  • Lunch at The Pita Pit and ice cream at Maggie Moo's
  • We went to see The Lion King...again...:) He hadn't seen it yet in the theater, so that was our excuse! But of course I wasn't complaining...
  • Went home and watched some of the Jeff Dunham special...he is hilarious! I've never watched it before. If you haven't heard of him, he's a ventriloquist and he's really good.
  • Took a late night run to the Shiny Place :) (the diner) Grilled cheese...pierogies...omelet...carrot cake...heaven.
  • This time I went to watch the baseball game (brown v. white) since SB was going to be closing for the brown team. I brought him some good luck and he threw really well! Even though it was a scrimmage against his own team, I still get nervous watching him pitch! Ha! I love it though, and I'm very proud of him.
  • Headed back to Philly to catch the bus (which was running 30 min late...urg) back to D.C.

All-in-all I had a wonderful weekend...the only bad part - it ended too soon! But those couple days were better than nothing <3

I want to thank the Jane Austen Prepster for giving me The Versatile Blogger award!

Rule #1: Thank the person who gave you the award. See above :)

Rule #2: Share seven facts about yourself.
1. I took five tests in two days and it was terrible. SO GLAD to be done :)
2. As much as my dentist tells me to, there is no way I'm giving up Coca Cola and sweet tea.
3. For the past hour I've had my headphones in, but no music playing...#distracted
4. Two things that I really wish we had in Blacksburg were: Friendly's and Forever 21.
5. I desperately wish I had curly hair and perfect vision.
6. I love football. Plain and simple.
7. I have toe nail polish on 365 days a year. I think my toes are ugly without polish!

Rule #3: Pass the award on to 15 bloggers that you recently (or not so recently) discovered:

Whew! Congrats and thank you again :)


  1. I completely agree about toe nail polish.

  2. Sounds like you had a great weekend! Thanks so so much for the award! I'm flattered :) I've already passed it on!


Thank you for the sweet comments! xo!
