Well Hello There, NOVEMBER

It’s amazing how fast time flies when you’re so busy all of your days run together and you don’t have time to breathe let alone blog having fun. At some point, I should consider writing a “Day in the Life” post. Maybe it would help me track where all of my time is disappearing to….

ANYWHO….I can’t believe it’s already mid-November. I would love to share every detail of my life from the past few weeks, but I don’t think any of us have that kind of time. Instead, here’s a brief recap of the last few weeks. Grab a cup of coffee and get to reading!

After our awesome Gatlinburg trip, it was back to real life (with a few fun interruptions). The Boy came up to visit over Centre’s fall break and took me on a date. We crossed a few things off of our Pittsburgh Bucket List:

Eating at a restaurant on Mt. Washington: The view was INCREDIBLE…but in order to get a reservation at a table by the window we had to eat dinner at 5:00 and be out by 6:00. The food was mediocre (I guess we were really paying for the view) but the wine was fantastic! Also – you can’t go wrong with a cheese plate.

We rode the Duquesne Incline down to Station Square, stopped for a drink, and then hopped on the T to head downtown. Our next stop was Olive Or Twist. I had heard great things and it did not disappoint! They have live music on the weekend and Justin said the dessert we had “was the best dessert he had ever had and he might love it even more than he loves [me].” SO if you’re ever in Pittsburgh, stop in and try the Banana Caramel Xango.
Facebooking how much he loved that dessert...
He had to go back to Danville, but the very next weekend was Homecoming at Centre C so it was my turn in the car. I’ll go more into detail in another post, but it was an awesome weekend. Friends + Chili + Day Drinking = my kind of weekend.

The next weekend was Halloween (aka one of my FAVORITE holidays) and it was Justin’s turn in the car. We didn't have very many trick-or-treaters so we called it an early night and got together with some friends. Justin & I were introduced to Cards Against Humanity and it is officially on our Christmas list! My friend from work had a costume party on Saturday and I was SO EXCITED since we didn’t get to dress up last year. We made our costumes and I was very concerned that we would have to throw them away and run to the store to buy backups, but they turned out AWESOME. Meet Fred & Wilma :)

Relationship exercise in trust...I survived with all of my hair.

I wasn’t without visitors for long, because my parents came to town last weekend. We were actually pretty lazy (we all needed a little break), but it was a fantastic visit. I showed them where I work, we took a LONG walk, and we went shoe shopping (this was not my dad’s favorite part of the trip). We went to Church at St. Mary’s on the Mount and spent some time on the overlooks on Mt. Washington. I’ve never been up there at night and it was really cool to see all of the lights in the city (it is not cool that it now gets dark at 5pm).

That brings us to this weekend…and my only plans are to do homework. It should be nice and “relaxing.” You’re probably out of coffee by now so I’ll wrap it up. We should do this again some time. I’ll do my best to not wait three weeks before another post (but please don’t hold me to that!).

Enjoy your weekend!
