Weekend Recap 2/29/16

February 29, 2016 in About Me / College

Hi guys and happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Going to be sharing a recap of my weekend and some pics that went along with it today, so let’s get started! 🙂

This Saturday was one of my best friend’s bday, so it was definitely a weekend of celebration for her!

On Friday night, we went out to hang with some friends at a dorm.


Me, Shannon (bday gal), Macayla, and Fran

After hanging in at the dorms, we went to a party! Shan wanted to go out both nights this weekend since it was her bday, so obviously I went along hehe. At midnight, everyone at the party sang happy birthday to her which was super sweet. She had a really fun night!

On Saturday, I slept in till about 11 which was amazing then got an iced coffee with Shan. I came back, made myself some food, and caught up on some blog reading. After, I went to the gym to get in a workout. My friends and I were taking Shan out and another one of my friends Sara (her birthday was Wednesday) for a nice dinner at the Cheesecake factory. We left around 4:30 and enjoyed a nice meal out!


My bff Jen and I at dinner 🙂 

After dinner, we came back and got ready to go out. We were meeting up with some friends in a different dorm because another one of my friends (Fran) had a birthday this past Thursday.



I took a selfie and posted it on Insta 🙂


My friends thought I looked like Avril Lavigne Saturday night and snapped this pic LOL. 

We went to my friends dorm and took some pics in front of her tapestry. They sang for Shan and Fran and got them a cake which was incredibly sweet. We all hung out, listened to some great music, and just talked/caught up. It was super fun to see them!


Gab, Katie, Me, and Jen 


Me and Syd


Shan got a Polaroid for her birthday and broke it out Saturday night too- all the pics came out great!!


Snapped a pic right after I cleaned off whip cream from my shirt. But less than a week till I’m in Florida with my BFF! So so so excited. 


After hanging out in the dorm, we went to a party which was fun. Kinda a messy night, but not every night can be perfect. Friend drama isn’t fun but it’s inevitable, especially when you’re living in close corners. Forgive and forget is my motto!

On Sunday morning, I slept in and got brunch with my friends. Had the best omelette with cheese, peppers, tomatoes, and broccoli with a side of home-fries and ketchup. After brunch, I got a coffee then hit the lib.

Ran into my great friend Jimmy drinking a chai 🙂


Jimmy is the kindest and sweetest soul on the planet and I am so thankful for him <3

Studied for my Spanish quiz, then got dinner with my friend Jillian. After, we went back to the lib and studied for our social psych test together which is this Wednesday. I came back to my dorm, talked with my friends a bit, then read some for English. After, I hit the hay and went to sleep. Ready for another busy week with tests and such, but last week until spring break!! Big motivation there.

Now tell me: 

One highlight from your weekend? 

What do you like in your omelettes? 

Hope you guys have a great day!

Sending my love as always.

    So much fun with friends! I was a huge Avril Lavigne fan, so I am loving that picture of you! Plus the backdrop for your friend shots is lovely.
    I keep my omelettes simply with cheddar and spinach!

    Highlight from my weekend was having nothing planned and just enjoying the time relaxing! I love mushrooms, onions and spinach in my omelettes. I am so jealous you have a spring break!! Ugh, I miss having one! But, my husband and I are taking a trip to London at the end of March so I am super excited about that!!

    What a fun weekend! I want one of those polaroid cameras, so fun! I went bowling this weekend and also went to an art museum 🙂 I thought I hated bowling, but turns out it’s not so bad, and neither am I lol

    • Reply Alyssa March 1, 2016 at 12:41 am

      Me too- I wish polaroids weren’t so expensive though! That sounds like a fun weekend. Bowling is definitely a fun thing to do with friends or family!

    Aww happy birthday to your BFF! Weekends like these are the best!! Highlight of my weekend was being in NYC and KILLIN’ IT (or at least I thought so haha) at my audition! Fingers crossed! My brother lives there so it was awesome to spend a couple days with him. Also, YAY LEO for finally winning an Oscar!! I watched them last night and I basically cried for him haha. I also am a huge brunch advocate, so if you’re ever in my neck of the woods feel free to hit me up so we can chat over some coffee and omelettes! 🙂 I love it loaded with all sorts of veggies and topped with ketchup and hot sauce. Have a fabulous week girl <3

      That is SO awesome Marina- I know you killed it girl!! I was so happy Leo won an Oscar too. OMG- we need a brunch and coffee date ASAP. That would be amazing!! Hope you have a great week as well 🙂

    Highlight from my weekend: walking around and reading in the suuuun! Simple pleasures <3
    My favorite omelette fillers are feta, tomatoes, broccoli & mushrooms topped with some sort of salsa or hot sauce!!

    • Reply Alyssa March 1, 2016 at 12:39 am

      aw that sounds awesome!! I love spending time in the sun 🙂 Also love salsa on my omelettes, and feta cheese!

    The highlight of my weekend was my day off Sunday. It was 60 degrees and I met up with a couple ladies from my racing team for lunch at the café that our team takes it’s name. I had forgotten what it feels like to actually have a full day off. I also watched Fuller House (which I then got in trouble at work for doing, but no regrets) which brought me back to my childhood. You had a great weekend! Avril Lavigne was bomb!

    • Reply Alyssa March 1, 2016 at 1:28 am

      The weather was so nice this weekend!! I am so excited to start fuller house. It looks so good! Haha no regrets at all for watching that at work, you’re doing it right girly 🙂 hope you have a great start to your week! Xoxo

    The highlight of my weekend was definitely finishing off my Ben and Jerry’s pint in the freezer. And, I may or may not have gotten a new one today 😉
