Okay, let me just rewind to the last week and a half! I’ve been slacking in updating you all because I’ve been super busy but I’ll fill you in. This first part of the post I actually wrote on the airplane on the way home Monday evening but never actually got around to posting it.
What a weekend, so I suppose I should start from Thursday as I began my weekend then. I mentioned that I would be going out of town but didn’t quite say what I was doing aside from a wedding.
Thursday I drove 2 1/2 hours to the airport so I could fly out at 2 ish and ended up arriving in Michigan right around 6 or so. That night I just stayed at a friends house because honestly I was tired and it was late when we got back (she made a wrong turn and we went an hour out of the way). I didn’t mind since I was just going to relax anyway.
Friday I woke up and got around for the day, then went to see my family! My niece was born last summer so I was excited to see her and how much she had grown. I spent some time with family before going to dinner with some friends. The original plan was to go to my favorite Mexican restaurant but there was a snowstorm and they closed at 3pm
. I was so bummed. We just went to a place where we can have drinks too and hung out.
Saturday we woke up bright and early and I got around to be drove to another town where I used to work. I stopped there and visited my old co-workers before I was picked up again to head to the wedding I had went home for. (Let me tell you, if you’ve ever traveled and not had a car I wouldn’t recommend it). It was frustrating having to get rides every place, it almost felt like in high school when you had to have a ride everywhere you went. The wedding was beautiful, the bride was gorgeous and we all had a great time.
Sunday we went back from the hotel and I tried to take a short nap (which didn’t really work). After that my best friend came and picked me up and I went to see my nephew who was born only a few short days before I left! Holy moly he was SO big! I was so glad I got to visit with them!
The long weekend brings me to today, Monday. I woke up bright and early to get around and I was picked up by my friend Tim, we went to lunch and then headed to the airport. I am currently on the plane watching the snowy ground disappear slowly. I’ll tell you, I picked the one weekend where my hometown got 10-12 inches of snow in the few days I was there. It was nice to see it again but I can’t wait to get back to nice and warm 70+ degree South Carolina weather!
The other things I’m excited for are: sleeping in my own bed and seeing my boyfriend.
It is now Friday and I have been home for 4 days and it has been crazy busy! I had an exam Tuesday morning, work Tuesday night, all morning and night Wednesday and Thursday morning. So as you can see, that is why I’ve been MIA. I never got around to a Bachelor post this week but honestly I wasn’t TOO thrilled other than the fact Arie picked his 4 hometown dates.
I don’t really understand why Arie picked Lauren to stay because I feel like they didn’t really have THAT big of a connection, but I guess there are always things on the show that aren’t shown to the rest of the world. As far as him picking Kendall over Bekah, I’m shocked but I’m not shocked. Bekah is 22 and he’s had his reserves about her but I really liked her so I’m kind of bummed. Anyway, next week’s episode should be interesting!
Alright all, I’m off to finish laundry, cleaning, cooking etc before work tonight! Have an awesome weekend and I’ll be back Sunday or Monday with a NEW post I’m sure you will be excited to read.
