Spring Break Update

Happy Spring, everyone!

I am so relieved that spring is finally upon us. The weather here has been up and down (rainy and cold one day, sunny and warm the next), but I am just thankful that all of the SNOW has melted and that it seems like spring is finally here to stay!

Well, the wedding in Florida was incredibly fun. It was so nice to see my brother and his girlfriend--I haven't seen him since New Year's! And it was also nice seeing other friends I hadn't seen in a very long time. The wedding was beautiful, and Ryan & Emily, the bride and groom, were glowing with happiness. It was lovely.

Then, Monday through Thursday of last week, B came to visit me! We spent lots of time together and still managed to like each other, so I think that's a very good sign! We did a variety of random activities, like visiting the museums in Washington, D.C., hiking to a waterfall, and doing a historic walk and hike through Harper's Ferry, West Virginia. We also had a few nice meals out, and spent some time talking and getting to re-know one another. It was awesome, and I am so glad to have finally found a guy I really click with on every level.


Yesterday, I had a rude awakening as it was time for CLASS. Spring Break is officially OVER, ladies and gents! But that's ok. Today is my Daddy's 55th Birthday, so Mom and I are taking him out to dinner at his favorite--Bonefish Grill! Then, I baked him a cake, so we are going to come home and do cake and presents. One of the perks of living at home this semester is that I am able to be around for this kind of thing.

On Friday, I am planning on going to SU and having a GIRLS NIGHT with my friends. Then, Saturday, B and I are driving to his parents' house in the Pocono Mountains so I can officially meet them (and his 4 younger brothers--yikes!). Then, Sunday, I meet even MORE people at his family's annual Palm Sunday dinner at his grandparents' house in New Jersey. I'm a little nervous, but I think I'll be alright. Wish me luck!

I'll leave you with a couple photos from this past week, courtesy of B's camera (I have yet to upload my own!):

I hope you all are having a lovely start to your week. Take time today to do something nice for yourself. For example, I painted my toenails a lovely shade of pinkish/purple called "Plum Seduction" the other day. So, don't forget to pamper yourself, because as L'Oreal says, "You're worth it!"

Off to Florida!

Just a quicky post to let you know things are going wonderfully with the boy toy! He visited earlier this week, and we have plans to go to the zoo and hiking next week during my Spring Break! School is also going well--got an "A" on my first paper and my first quiz :-)

And now, Mom, Dad, and I are off to PENSACOLA, FLORIDA for a wedding! My brother's best friend is getting married, and we are all invited since my bro is in the wedding. I am very excited to soak up some warm beachy weather and perhaps even catch the bride's bouquet! hehe.

I'll update next week with lots of photos. For now, here's a super cute one of me and the boy:

have a fantastic weekend :-)

Thursday, March 4, 2010


Long time, no post! How is everyone doing? I've still been reading, of course, but I had a busy busy weekend so I haven't had a chance to post.

So, where do I even begin?!

Well, Friday night I went with my parents to a charity ball at my best friend Brooke's church. It included dinner and dancing and a silent auction and was a lot of fun.

Then, Saturday afternoon was Brooke's sister-in-law Katie's surprise baby shower. It is their first son and they are very excited--due in April :-) Then, the real excitement began! I drove straight to Selinsgrove, PA to meet up with B and another couple I know for a double date!
B & I at dinner <3>

We went to BJ's Restaurant for dinner, where I had cornbread and a pulled pork BBQ sandwich (my fav!), and then we wanted to go see a movie. When we got to the theater, the next showings weren't until 10:30ish, so we had about an hour to spare. So, the other 3 suggested heading over to Friendly's for ice cream! At first, I was like whaaat, but then I realized you know what? This is what being normal means. This is what normal college kids do! So, we went to Friendly's and Ben and I shared a mint cookie chip sundae with whipped cream & chocolate sauce.... yummy :-)

Then we saw the movie "The Crazies", mostly because Amber really wanted to see it. I'm not really into that sort of movie (horror/zombie/violent), but it was still fun to be with B and just enjoy the night. After that, B came back to my apartment with me and we snuggled and watched a movie together, and slept in each other's arms. It was perfect.

Sunday, we slept in a bit, and then B took me out to brunch at a local place. I got an egg & cheese sandwich on an english muffin with a side of fruit salad and 2 cups of coffee! Then we did various little things, like shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond and Target, going to the car wash, and buying wine from a local winery! Then B showed me his place and introduced me to his roommates, and we watched Canada beat the U.S. in Ice Hockey at the Olympics haha.

Then, Sunday night, B and I went grocery shopping together and then he came to my apartment and cooked me a delicious meal of pasta with chicken, mushrooms, cheese, onions, and tomatoes. Plus garlic bread and red wine.

cookin' up a storm!

It was superb. The weekend ended with us sleeping together in my cozy bed, then waking up together, and then the sad part--saying goodbye.

I am honestly in shock about how well things are going with this guy. He is perfect for me in every way. We laugh together, have intelligent conversations together, and I feel comfortable talking about my ED struggles with him and know that he is here to support me, not judge me. B is coming to visit me this Sunday and Monday, and I honestly cannot wait!

In other news, I had another weigh-in and was shocked to find out I had LOST weight. Honestly, I felt like I ate so normally and naturally this weekend, but obviously it wasn't enough. My body is wacky and needs MORE than the average person, so I need to remember that. My parents were not pleased with this news, and my mom is threatening to take me out of yoga, etc. So, I am going to work very hard this week to make weight gain my number 1 priority.

Well, I hope everyone has been having a great week, and I will post again soon :-)
