Weekend Recap: Dances and Fun 4/25/16

April 25, 2016 in College

Hi guys and happy Monday! Hope you all are doing well and that you had a lovely weekend. I’m going to be recapping my weekend for you all today, so lets get started!


After my two classes on Friday, I got lunch with some friends then headed back to my room to take a nap. I usually volunteer Friday’s, but it was cancelled this week so I spent some time relaxing outside, took a nap, and FaceTimed my best friend from home. I got dinner with my friend Jen and ate outside which was super nice. We started getting ready for the dance that our dorm had around 7:30. It was a semi-formal theme, so everyone threw on their fancy-ish apparel for a bit and all the people in our dorm building got together for the night!

Someone that I am eternally grateful for… the person that loves deep talks and sweet potato fries just as much as I do. Love Jimmy so much and am so blessed for his presence in my life! <3 

After the dance, my friends and I headed out to a party on campus, but basically everyone was just hanging outside because the weather was so warm. I saw my best friend Tim and go to meet his best friend from home too which was awesome, and spent the rest of the night hanging with them and Shan. It was such a fun night and I am glad that I went out!


On Saturday, I slept in till around 11:00 and then got brunch with my friend Jen. I had a delicious omelette with cheese, peppers, and tomatoes with a side of home fries! After brunch, I did some social psych reading then headed to the gym with my friend Jen. I got an iced coffee after which was so delish, then came back and went on Tumblr/relaxed for a bit. I went downstairs to make myself dinner and got a lot of laughs along the way because I shoved a Japanese sweet potato in my pocket… gotta do what ya gotta do, right?!

Clearly sweet potatoes just make me SO happy… with nut butter of course 

After dinner, my friends and I got ready for a dance that the school was holding. It was a spring mixer and was open to all grades. We left for the dance around 10:00 and took some pics before too!


My best friend Tim and I. Seriously the MOST genuine, caring, and kindest guy you will ever meet. Love him to pieces 🙂

My best friend Jen and I and ALSO my roomie next year which I am super duper excited about 


And also… just because hugs and hugs from your roomie are the BEST. We give a lot of hugs every weekend and every day

The dance was a lot of fun and overall a great time! I am glad I went out and spent the weekend with the people I care about the most and the ones that make me smile.


On Sunday, I got up around 11:00, showered, cleaned my room a bit, then my parents picked me up and they took me to lunch at Panera and also dropped off some food because I was completely out of fruit… so sad, right??

After, I went to a coffee shop to get some homework done with my friend Paige! We were pretty productive if I do say so myself. I got done a paper due Tuesday (still have to edit it up a bit) and she was working hard on a paper as well! It was great to spend some time with her. After, I got dinner with my friends Shannon and Jen then headed to church at 7:00. It was a great mass!

I went to the library after with Tim to work on some Spanish homework and social psych reading. And now I am here at 11:39 writing this blog post! Going to journal then hit the hay!

Now tell me: 

What was the highlight of your weekend? 

Do you sleep in on the weekends? 

Hope you guys have a great Monday!

Sending my love as always.

    Ahh I miss college parties! Looks like you had a laid back yet exciting and vibrant night with people you care about (while looking cute as all heck). I regret not going out as much as I could’ve / would’ve liked to due to my ED, but I’m SO glad you’re making the most of it <3

    Gosh I sure do miss the days when I could sleep in til 11. 🙂 I am usually up around 7 or 8 on the weekends because I get up around 5 during the week so my body is ready to get up early on the weekends. We visited our friends in Arkansas for their birthdays this weekend which was so much fun!

    • Reply Alyssa April 26, 2016 at 2:19 pm

      Wow- that is an early wake up call during the week! That sounds like such a fun weekend, glad you were able to enjoy yourself Taylor! 🙂 xoxo

    Love your recaps! Always so cute. 🙂 I try to sleep in but my body likes to be up!

    • Reply Alyssa April 26, 2016 at 2:19 pm

      Thank you so much Julia!! I am the same way during the week- I like being up and going early!

  • Reply sarah April 25, 2016 at 11:54 pm

    I need to catch up on sleep, maybe next weekend 😉 I love all these pics, you are so cute girly! And yay for nice weather and spending time outside! I prefer outside parties over indoors, especially at night.. I’m not sure what it is but I’ll take a bonfire or tailgate over hanging out inside someone’s apartment any day!

    • Reply Alyssa April 26, 2016 at 2:18 pm

      I am the same way- I would much rather be outside for a party than cooped in somewhere! Hope you had a great weekend babe, love you!!

    You look so happy Lyss! :)) I don’t usually sleep in on Sundays, but I do sleep in on Saturdays. 🙂 The highlight of the weekend was church. <3 By God's grace, I'm learning the privilege of being with His body more and more every Sunday to worship.
