This past weekend marked my final Sibs Weekend at OU. All of these “lasts” keep coming up, and it’s so sad! One thing I’ve always appreciated about my school is their family weekends. Not many other schools have that! I know they could come visit any time, but having a designated weekend makes it easier on me. Plus, there’s a different feel at the university when everyone brings their families at the same time.
I had such a marvelous weekend with Adam, and I wish we could have stretched it out to one day longer. Saturday flew by! My parents dropped him off at my apartment Friday night, and we headed straight to dinner. He was in the mood for something spicy, so while we waited for a table at Casa Nueva and Cantina, we munched on some chips and salsa. For dinner, I ordered the vegetarian chili (it’s always so spicy and delicious) and a house salad. I forgot to take a pc of the chili until the last bite!
We also saw these goofy statues on the shelf next to us. It’s perfectly Athens to have something weird like this.
The next morning, we went to breakfast at the Union Street Diner with my roommate (Kellie) and her brother. We introduced our very shy brothers to each other over some food. I had a spinach, tomato, mushroom and onion omelette. I couldn’t finish the potatoes!
Adam had a ridiculously large hot chocolate to accompany his breakfast. We laughed out loud when the waitress brought i over.
After breakfast, we grocery shopped for our dinner ingredients! Then it was time for yoga. The studio here was having their open house, so all classes were free! I thought I was roping Adam into something he wouldn’t enjoy, but he ending up liking the class we took: Yin restorative. It was so relaxing!
Obviously we had to follow that up with caffeine at his favorite coffee shop, Donkey Coffee and Espresso. 😉
Later, we ate our dinner, which we’d prepped earlier. Adam loves Chinese, so we thought we’d try Lee’s Crock Pot Sesame Chicken. It was really tasty, but I actually felt that it had more of a BBQ touch to it. Either way, Adam was happy! The only problem is that it doesn’t photograph well.
I was so glad that OU’s hockey team was playing this weekend. We went to the game to watch OU win over Kent State as our evening activity! Then we went to Donkey Coffee again because Ad wanted hot chocolate. I got a chai. And since that wasn’t enough sugar, we had dessert at home! I forgot to snap a picture of it, but it was from a local bakery, Fluff. I had a cupcake and Adam had a bootyshaker bar (it was as decadent as it sounds!).
Before our parents arrived the next day, we had breakfast at Bagel Street Deli. Adam got the Abe Froman (picture typical breakfast sandwich with sausage), and I had the Bluenana (blueberry bagel, banana, honey, cinnamon). Oh, and then we went to Donkey again. I told you Adam loves it.
Now it’s back to the weekly grind. I miss Adam so much already, but it truly was a marvelous weekend. And who knows? I might have recruited a little Bobcat! 🙂
Thanks, Katie, for linking us all up on this Marvelous Monday!
