Insta-Friday 9.14.12

Happy Friday, everyone! Sorry this post is so late in the day, but it has been a crazy day and I am finally settling down to write. You may have noticed that I didn't take pictures last week; instead, I wrote this about my first week of teaching...I'm happy to report that this week has been loads better at school. Unfortunately, I am still emotionally drained by being so far away from the people I love. It gets very very lonely at times. So much so that it hurts...

But I was at least able to get out there and do things this week.

On Saturday, my amazing parents came to visit so we could go to my baby cousin's first birthday party. Lucky me--they brought my new Kate Spade prescription sunglasses that came in! Yay!

Little Adam was such a sweetheart and he smiled when he opened all of his gifts! It was so nice to spend time with family.

 

He had the CUTEST cake ever!

Not sure why this picture turned out so blurry, but here I am, reunited with my roommate Ali! On Tuesday, this crazy lady drove the three hours to and from where I live to treat me to a concert! We saw Pentatonix, the INCREDIBLE a cappella group that won The Sing Off! It was SO FREAKING AMAZING! If you haven't listened to them yet, check them out here!

They were seriously so funny and chill and I wished I could be their best friend!

Time to get a bit artsy on you! The other night, I FINALLY made time to go do laundry, which is slowly turning into a lousy, but very necessary chore.

While waiting for my laundry, I walked outside where they have a little park and train station with old trains. It's a really charming area.

Tonight I went to the first high school football game I've been to in forever. I haven't sat IN the stands in over eight years! I ended up leaving after half time because it was pretty boring and it was starting to rain, but it was certainly interesting!

I was in marching band for eight years, so seeing them play made me miss it so incredibly much. I can't wait to be a part of Westminster's alumni band in two weeks!!!!!

 

I hope everyone had a great week! Be on the lookout for some cool posts pretty soon!
