February 1, 2016 in College / Yummy Eats

Hi guys and happy Monday! Going to be doing a weekend recap today and share some of the fun things I did over the weekend so let’s get started! 🙂


I had class from 9:30-10:20 then 10:20-11:30! I got lunch with friends after then headed to babysit!

This is the little girl I babysit named Gracie. It was her birthday Friday too. She is so adorable! 

After babysitting, my parents and uncle took me out to dinner at Panera Bread! So good to get non-dining hall food.


Got a green smoothie, the you pick two with the garden veggie soup and thai chicken salad, and an apple! Yum yum. All my faves.

After dinner and grocery shopping, my parents dropped me off back at school and I went to bingo with my friends. (It’s a big deal at my school because they give out really awesome prizes like beats, TV’s, etc!)



Me and my bff Jen 🙂 Unfortunately we didn’t win any prizes lol. 

After bingo, my friends Shannon and I went to see some friends in another dorm and hang out with them!


,Me, Macayla, Jen, and Monica! 

After hanging with them for about an hour, we made the walk back to our dorm and Shannon, Jen, and I hung out in my room with our friend Brody. We talked/listened to music in my room and had a low-key yet fun night!


On Saturday, my friends Shannon, Gabby, and I went to the mall to look for shoes for Shan for a dance. We got Chipotle for lunch which was absolutely amazing.


Salad with brown rice, pinto beans, fajita vegetables, mild salsa, corn and guac. YUMMMM. 

Shan found some beautiful black shoes and I got some earrings/took some weird pics of myself while out at the mall since that’s what I do best.



I didn’t buy either of these things but enjoyed taking selfies with them on hehe.

After the mall, we got coffee at the best place ever: MARYLOUS.


(Btw: the Deb, Barb, and Judy the musical thing is an inside joke lol)

I headed back to my room, did some homework/read some blogs, then went to the gym!

After working out I grabbed some food with my friends, showered, then started getting ready for our semi-formal dance.

It was such a fun night and I am so glad I went. A night out with friends is soooo worth it guys.


I slept in Sunday morning, made myself some food, and spent the day doing homework/napping/hanging out with my friend Sydney and her boyfriend Zach. I did some laundry, walked to Panera Bread for dinner, and FaceTimed my mom! Very relaxing day.

Now tell me: 

What is your go-to Panera order? 

Highlight of your weekend?

Thanks for reading guys! Hope you have a great Monday 🙂

    I love your dress! Such a pretty color on you.
    I think the Thai chicken salad is my favorite at Panera. I always get a big salad with bread!

      Thank you so much Kate!! Thai chicken is definitely one of my favorite salads, or the Asian sesame chicken one!

    You look so pretty in purple. It works with your blonde hair so well. I haven’t been to Panera in forever so I have no idea what they serve haha…soooo I’d say I’d get bread…because it’s called Panera Bread for a reason =P The highlight of my weekend was the warm weather. Have a great week!

    • Reply Alyssa February 2, 2016 at 2:27 am

      Aw thank you so so much Ellie! Panera does have some awesome bread though hehe. Loved the warm weather this weekend too! Hope you have a great week as well 🙂

    Two Panera visits in one weekend is a great one in my book! I love their Med Quinoa Salad, and I’m always a fan of the turkey/avocado BLT sandwich. I hope you enjoyed your formal!

      I lucked out by getting to go to panera twice in one week hehe 🙂 I love the med Quinoa salad too!! Never had that sandwich but it sounds super tasty. And thank you so much Sarah!! 🙂

    Aw what wonderful memories. You and all your friends looked phenomenal (love the color of your dress). So glad you had a nice time out! And then were able to relax and enjoy a happy Sunday as well. Panera isn’t a huge deal here – but I did have an avocado breakfast sandwich once and it was da bomb.

      Thank you so much Cora, you are so sweet! I’ve never had a breakfast sandwich from Panera but that sounds delicious. Hope you have a great day! 🙂
