Friends, Football, & {Boys?}

Why hello, lovelies! 
I feel like I've been so out of touch and it was only for a day! {and a half} :)
I enjoyed every minute of my long weekend. I wish every week could be that short.

Early Thursday afternoon I made the almost 4 hour drive down to Tech. It had been 4 years since I last made the trip and for some reason this time felt longer. Lucky for me, I had an amazing playlist and some Amp to get me through. I'm not gonna lie, it was a party in my car. 

The weather was so crazy from the rain at the beginning of my trip, to it actually snowing by the time I got to Blacksburg. I am seriously in love with Tech. The campus is beautiful and it's just flocked with young people {obviously}. I miss it. 

So anyway, I get to my lovely friend Lauren's apartment and she has a drink waiting for me when I walk through the door. Not even kidding. This girl is awesome! :)

{We had a little fun with photo what? :)}
I'm not sure how many of you watched the game that night but I'm sure you could tell it was f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g! They actually said it was the fourth coldest game at Tech ever. We froze our little butts off until we just couldn't take it anymore {right before halftime.} 

We watched the rest of the game from her apartment as we got ready to go out. Of course, the Hokies won and are heading to UVA next weekend for a chance to win a trip to Charlotte for the championship game. If you aren't from Virginia, Tech and UVA are huge rivals and they always play Thanksgiving weekend. I've always wanted to go to this game and this year I finally get to go! I can't wait!! 

The rest of the night was a blast. Can I just say that I'm finally past the transition phase and being single is so much fun! And Tech is the perfect place for it. 60/40 ratio guys to girls. I'll take it! Haha 

Anyway, now it's back to reality. Saturday night I came home and did some shopping and baking all while trying to fight off a sore throat. Just as I thought, I woke up yesterday and today barely able to speak so it's my mission to knock this thing out asap cause this girl doesn't have time to sit around and let it take its course. Not this week. Keep your fingers crossed that this passes quickly :)

Oh, and can I just say that I definitely made sure to capitalize on the whole 2 for 1 drinks at Starbucks this weekend? {twice!} hehe

What did y'all do this weekend?
