WIAW + a weekend of pics!

Hi, my name is Nikki. I started this blog to meet awesome people, get healthy, and tell everyone about my life.

Just kidding. But seriously. I have been gone for a while.  I had a rough week, and decided to use this weekend to let go of everything and just enjoy life.  I didn’t work out for 5 days!! And I let myself eat pretty much anything.  And seriously, I feel so much better.

Here’s a weekend recap:

Friday night, I went to my first college swim meet post-college career.  It was awesome to watch my teammates race, and I got dinner and ice cream with my beau and 4th grade BFF, too! Smile

Saturday, a few of us attempted to go to a local apple festival. Two hours of traffic later, we made it.  It was really crowded, but really nice at the same time! Nothing wrong with a caramel apple!


Traffic forever…

Saturday night was the Jack’s Mannequin concert.  Did you know I am obsessed with them?? Andrew McMahon is amazing. I have seen him 6 times…



My WIAW portion of the post is all food from Sunday.  Thanks to the lovely Jenn for this one! Winking smile

Sunday morning, I got up super early and drove the 2.5 hours home to my family.  My cousin’s baby shower was first on the agenda.  Instead of giving a play-by-play, it’s all gonna be in pictures!


Amazing cake from Whole Foods


Brownie cake pop!


Cheese and chicken filled goodness with zucchini on the side!


After the shower, it was off to Vincent’s Pizza.  I told you I wasn’t calorie conscious this weekend!!!


Next part of the day: Kennywood Park! Kennywood is the local amusement park, and it is their Fright Night time for Halloween! I went with my sister and two cousins, and we had a blast!


I’ll finish off my WIAW with some Potato Patch fries Smile


Monday, I wasn’t feeling that great, but my Mama, sissy and I went to see 50/50.  I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the movie was adorable.  It made me cry and immediately made me laugh again.  I recommend seeing it!

We also went out for my Mama’s birthday, which was on Sunday! Happy birthday, Mama! Smile  And I hung out with my besties.  I love seeing friends!

Tuesday was dentist, shopping (yay Target!), and a drive back to school.  Only to be greeted by these little guys!


Too bad they’re heading to a good home tomorrow Sad smile.  Geno is also losing his manliness in the morning (chop-chop!)

Well I am off to coach some Special Olympics swimming! Adios blog world!
