Weekend Update

This weekend was a good one :). I only have one weekend left until school starts again so I’m really trying to make them count!! Here’s what I did…

Brock's dorm room
(boy dorm rooms…)

I worked most of the day at Benetton and came home feeling stressed and a little sad (fact, I cried on the phone with my mom while walking home). I think I was probably just tired and nervous for my schedule with school starting so soon so I decided to take it easy. I filled up my tub with tons of bubbles and warm water, threw on some Jamie Cullum, lit a candle, and poured myself a glass of wine. It. Was. Wonderful. Definitely what I needed to feel better.

I got up bright and early and crossed a few to-do’s off of my giant list then headed in to work for a few hours. After work, I bought some delicious dinner at Whole Foods and came home to cook it up (I’ll give that meal its own post). My big brother asked if I wanted to visit him to watch the UFC fight so I threw some things in a bag and ran to hop on a train to see him. The fight was AWESOME (Anderson Silva is my boy) and I had a really nice time with my brother and his friends. We finished the night off with some How I Met Your Mother and homemade cookies.

I slept in because I didn’t have anything planned for the day. When Brock woke up, we went and got breakfast in his school’s cafeteria (which serves the most delicious things) and ate with his girlfriend and her friend. Then we ran to the store to grab some vino and he dropped me off at the train station. When I finally got home I was feeling pretty stressed again (yikes! I need to calm it down) so I cleaned my apartment and made another giant dinner. Cooking almost always calms me down :). The rest of the night was spent reading blogs and catching up with friends from home. A great Sunday if you ask me!

So friends, how did you spend your weekend?
