Kimberly & Tiffany

What a weekend! Friday started off with an extremely early alarm time, a cold shower, and off to the airport I went. After a quick stop in Kansas City, I landed in Indianapolis… where it was 1 degree. 1 degree! (As I sat on the runway in Dallas, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t re-considering the decision to go after that announcement was made.. but of course that was a fleeting thought!) Katy picked me up from the Union around 4:00 and then the fun started.

Casa de Katy

Now I’m going to brag about my friends for a moment… Katy is probably the best English teacher in West Lafayette (and her stories about her classes are priceless. I believe I have her convinced to guest post here from time to time, so look forward to that.) In December she closed on her first house (pictured above). It’s an adorable 4 bedroom, 2 bath house not too far from her school. Not many people own a home at 25 years old, let alone such a nice one, but she does both and is about to graduate from her masters program with a Masters in Education.. I do believe that gives her Rock-Star status!

Katy & Amy getting their Den Pops

After dinner, chatting, gelato (for Meghan and Katy), hot chocolate (for me), more chatting, collecting Amy from the train station, and even more chatting, Friday came to an end. A lazy Saturday morning started off with a quick trip to Discount Den for Den Pops before meeting up with Meghan and newly-arrived Amanda. (A den pop is a giant 32 oz soda for $0.56, a very popular treat to go grab in between classes at Purdue.) As everyone else started to get into town we met for lunch at Moe’s and an afternoon of chatting and laughing and catching up with one another. Does the title of this post seem… unusual? It came out that one of us (who-shall-not-be-called-out-by-name) named each of their hands when they were little!! See, I told you my friends were awesome!

At Scotty's Brewhouse for Dinner

After dinner at Scotty’s Brewhouse, it was game time. Purdue defeated Michigan State 86-76!! Purdue came and by the middle of the second quarter had a 10 point lead and from that point out Michigan State never really was able to mount a come back. We had our moments, but if we keep it up there’s no reason why we can’t make it to the Elite 8 this year, and really no reason we can’t with the Big 10 Tournament outright.

Kath woke us up at 8:00am the next morning and cooked a fabulous feast of cinnamon rolls, eggs, bacon, sausage, and pancakes. After a little more chatting, we all started to trickle home and the weekend was over. It was so fun to get to see these wonderful girls. They are all amazing and even though I sometimes go months without talking to them, they are always there and we can pick up where we left off the last time. I know I said I wasn’t going to do resolutions this year, but keeping in better touch with them really is a goal for me. Our next reunion will be in July for Laura’s wedding (ps- Laura if you’re reading this, we missed you so much and it wasn’t the same without you there!) It was a great weekend, a great vacation, and I can’t wait to do it all over again.

    I love your blog. Your website is beautiful. I had no doubt that it would be with your awesome credentials. I think you should write a spanish sentence within each blog… then we can learn something :) It is still cold in Indiana but for some reason I am so sad to be leaving the refreezing cold and lots and lots of snow; heading back to Las Vegas. I never thought I would be disappointed to be going to 70 degree weather. Crazy! I think I am going to join a tennis league when I head back to Vegas. After talking to you over the weekend, I am finally going to pull the trigger and get back out there. A girlfriend of mine has been pushing me for months and I just have not done it. I am super excited. I will let you know how it goes :)

    Thanks, Kath!

    I’m thoroughly jealous Vegas is 70 right now, although after single digits even the 45 degrees here feels warm. Tennis sounds like a blast, I haven’t tried one of those leagues yet but if they’re anything like other sports you will have a great time and meet some really fun people. And as for getting back out there, good for you :) please keep in touch with how it goes!!

    If you ever have anymore crazy Vegas stories (not so much the ‘sanchez’ one ;), but the ordeal of traveling with Tucker would have made for an entertaining post) that you would like to share, please feel free to write them and send them my way. It was so great to see you this weekend and I will also be better about texting and phone calls!

    I’m so proud of my friend (and secretly jealous of how awesome your blog is). The pictures look great and I’m flattered that “Kimberly and Tiffany” made the title :) Hope your birthday was a hit too!

    Thanks, Katy!! And whenever you’re ready to post your classroom stories let me know, they’ll be awesome!
