Did you notice the exclamation point is back? It’s because I am out of school today! I was also out Friday! Actually, I worked these days already through my professional development this summer. I am linking up with Heather, etc. so go right here!
So, Friday morning I had probably the second best donut of my life. I am not a big donut person but the best donut is from my hometown and it has white icing and tiny chocolate chips. This donut was on the way to our first college visit of senior year. It was a glazed donut with decadent chocolate on top and the donut itself was amazing. I could only eat half; don’t worry I ate the other half later.
College visit selfie.
This was a full circle moment. We visited the college where our wedding reception was held (the building below with the columns)! Neither of us went to college there but I am from a small town without many options for receptions.
Both boys really liked it, but Mason LOVED it. It hit me this weekend how hard this is to do with twins. They have different interests and different wants in a school. I can’t recommend enough to visit when kids are on campus and to let your kids sit in on a class. They also got to meet the professor afterwards. Mason went to an English class with only 15 students where he got to participate in the discussion and then the professor talked to him after the class for over an hour and gave him a book to keep! What a great experience even if this isn’t going to be his college.
When we got home, I made dinner and then Jack went to a 9:00 showing of The Joker.
Saturday Mason went to The Joker with his friends. I made my first pot of chili!
I had some errands and also treated myself to Starbuck’s
I finally changed after 5 weeks to Malaga Wine dip by OPI.
Saturday was gorgeous. The morning was really cool but then it got up to 80. Sunroof, baby!
Tom and I went back to 3rd Turn brewery in the old greenhouse for their Octoberfest.
The “German” food was not good. I could lie and tell you it was, but it was bad. I’m glad we split this plate. I only took 4 bites.
My beer was really good, though. It was number 2 on the menu above.
We left pretty early and just watched some new fall sitcoms on the DVR.
Sunday was lazy and I made pumpkin bread.
My yard was starting to get the fall memo!
I ate a bowl of chili and a slice of pumpkin bread on the patio. My chili recipe is coming soon. I think it’s really good and super easy!
And, finally, we don’t usually go out on Sunday nights but we had an early dinner reservation with our good friends and their daughter (their other daughter is away at college) and our boys. This Day of the Dead themed Mexican restaurant just opened in a renovated church.
Mason got the ribs. He said they were super spicy with Mexican seasonings.
I got a blackberry drink.
and fish tacos. It was a great atmosphere and great food!
It was a fun way to spend a Sunday night with no school the next day!
What did you do this weekend? Hope it was great!
