Friday was my good friend's birthday and we had a great time celebrating with her and a bunch of other people. I managed to take 0 photos but I promise it was lots of fun!
Saturday morning we went to the pumpkin patch with Mike's brother and family. It has been really cool here lately but that made the outing that much more season-appropriate. Little ones were running around everywhere and I think my niece had a blast. I loved seeing all the adorable farm animals and of course picking out the perfect pumpkin!
After a lovely day with my niece and nephew, we went home (the only time we were home and not sleeping!) to watch the North Carolina football game. I am noticing a trend where the team starts the game out a little rough but then goes on a huge scoring spree and wins by a lot. And they did just that! Mike was extra excited about having a tweet go semi-viral. A while ago, a Wake Forest coach posted an insulting tweet about UNC and the players and the fans and Mike were happy to remind him about it. His phone was blowing up with retweets. Go heels!
Saturday night, we went to an Oktoberfest party. We arrived around 11 because Mike wanted to catch some of the Mets game as well but the party was still in full swing. There were pretzels, bratwursts, schnitzel, and of course all kinds of German beer. And so many people were wearing lederhosen and dirndls! It was definitely lots of fun.
Sunday morning my mom called me to tell me that family is visiting from Nevada and today is pretty much the only day we can see them. So of course we jumped on the opportunity and met up with them for lunch. I haven't seen them for around 20 years so it was very nice to catch up. They are constantly inviting us to come down and stay with them for a bit. It sounded so appealing that now we are thinking of ways to rearrange our future travel plans to accommodate the trip. As of now, we have the next 3 or so years of travel planned already. Is that normal?
Anyway, we rounded off the weekend with a quick visit to our friends who are just a couple weeks away from having their first baby! There was lots of exciting baby talk and possible names being through around. I can't wait to meet their little one!
And with that, it's Monday. I am so exhausted that I am aaalmost wanting to say TGIM. Don't hate me. I need my routine back.
Linking up with Biana at B Loved Boston for her Weekending series!
