{Weekend In Review} From Formals to Birthdays

Hello lovelies!

I'm feeling extra great today simply because I only have a two day week this week and then I can go HOME.  Eeeeek! As much as I love being at school with all my friends, home is a nice place, too :) Before I get a head of myself here and start on the topic of cuddling up by the fire watching Christmas movies and decorating for Christmas, I thought I'd tell you a bit about my weekend!

Friday was the day of winter formal and the only word I can think to describe it is fun! It was just fun.  That word seems like it holds so little meaning, yet there's no other word that fits, you know? I'm not one for dances, because, let's be real here, I can't dance.

I went with a group of friends, some of us had dates, some of us didn't, and it was all of my favorite people in one place at one time.  A smaller group of us went to dinner before to my favorite restaurant in my little college town called Toast.  This place is seriously has theee best food! But the food's not even the best part about the dinner. Let me explain...

When we were getting ready to pay, our waitress came over and said that she can take back our order tickets because someone anonymously has decided to pay for everyone's meal.  That's 10 people, y'all!! We were all completely in shock and so so grateful that someone would do that.  We found out who payed for our meal as we were leaving, just a young father with his two little kids.      

It got me thinking...there needs to be more people like that in the world.  Not necessarily ones who will pour out lots of money on people, but ones who have the desire to give like that.  This man with his two young children had the heart to pull his waiter aside and tell him he wants to pay for our entire tables bill and then not be thanked or acknowledged that it was him.  WOW. I strive to give more to others without the need to be thanked or acknowledged.  This was truly a moment I won't forget.

The rest of the night was just perfect and I shared lots of laughs with some of the greatest people!

Saturday my friend and I headed to the new outlets that opened a week ago.  (I may have already been there 3 times now....oops. I have a problem).  We spent the day shopping and got some great bargains (helllllloooo new Kate Spade bag!), were able to catch some of the Husker football game, and ended our adventure by enjoying a chicken enchilada at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants.  Yummmmmmmmy!

And then...tis the season of 21st birthdays! It was time to celebrate my friends 21st even though we had kind of been celebrating all weekend..but that's what 21st birthdays are for...right? It's weird having friends turning 21.  I feel like I'm the only one that can grow one else can!

Wheeew! Sorry, long post! What a weekend, I'm going to need this Thanksgiving break the catch up on all this sleep I've missed.  But, it was worth it, times out with good friends are priceless :)
