I can't believe it's already Saturday night! I don't know how the weekends always go by so fast, while my weeks of class, homework and meetings stretch on forever! I'm sure many of you are used to this feeling as well.
Here's what I've been up to!
Thursday, Alpha Phi had a "When I Grow Up" mixer. Since dressing up as a wedding planner is a bit difficult, I decided to go for a housewife instead, and I have to say, it turned out really well! I ended up wearing a black and white, strapless, polka dot dress that I bought at some point in high school (so excited I can still fit in that thing). Honestly, I don't think I'd ever worn it before. I threw on a cupcake apron, some pearls and some red lipstick and I was set!

So much fun!
Yesterday, I rested most of the day until around 6:30pm, when I had dinner with Erin, my roommate from freshman year. She and I have stayed good friends even though we haven't lived together in 3 years. She is amazing and I love being able to hangout with her!

This year at my 21st birthday!
We went to this quaint little restaurant in Boone, called Proper. It hasn't been around too long and features down home southern food.
Last night, I had a crab cake with macaroni and cheese and hush puppies. This also came with a biscuit and their homemade ketchup. This ran me just over $8.00 before tip. The atmosphere and company were my favorite and the food was pretty good, but being from the south and eating at potluck dinners all my life, this wasn't even close to the food I have at all family functions and church homecomings.
After dinner, Erin and I headed over the the music building on campus (Proper is just a few streets over). Some of her good friends were doing an opera performance for one of their classes. I had nothing better to do and thought it would be something interesting and fun to hear. It was def. a night well spent!
Tonight, I plan on relaxing, maybe crafting a bit (I can't wait to share them with you), and just enjoying my free time!
Have a great weekend!
