Weekend as a college student again. Sort of.

October 22, 2012
It's Monday! The weekend is over and I'm glad to be home! It was a crazy little trip! Here are some of the things we did...

1. Chelsea and I stayed with Andrew's sister, Kara and her roommates for the weekend (I didn't want to spend $200.00 on a hotel). I was worried that Chelsea would cry a lot in the night and wake up Kara's roommates, but luckily Chelsea was very well behaved and the girls were mostly just glad to see and play with a baby again! I guess you don't interact with them as much in college.
2. Andrew and I got to see some of the changes that have been made to the campus since last year. In one short year, BYU-Idaho has really come a long way!
3. We got to visit with my cousin and best bud, Liz! I don't get to see her nearly enough and it's never for very long either. But it was fun to visit and were able to discuss a new inspirational blog she's starting. Can't wait to have a button for it to share!
4. Watched the BYU/Notre Dame football game. Surprise surprise. What a disappointment.
5. Explored Kara's hotel-like apartment complex. They had a lobby up front, multiple conference rooms with big, luxurious couches and huge TVs. Plus a large workout room with all the latest and greatest equipment and even a dance studio! *Spoiled*
6. Tried not to get blown away in the Idaho wind (I forgot how windy it gets in Rexburg)!
7. Visited some really great friends, Joyce and Jason! They're pregnant with a little boy, due in a couple of months, and I can not WAIT!
8. Andrew went off-roading with his brother, his brother's roommate, and cousin in a huge jeep while I went with Kara to Sammy's for some delicious pie shakes (pumpkin cheesecake = Yummmmm!)
9. Waited... and waited... and waited for Andrew and the boys to get back so I could say goodnight. Turns out they got stuck in the mud.
10. Luckily someone in a jeep with a winch found them (winch - cord and machine connected to the front of the jeep like on "Jurassic Park").
11. Watched "Hocus Pocus" with Kara and her rommates and went to bed.
12. Drove home the next day.

It was a great weekend and so far it doesn't appear that Chelsea's schedule has been too screwed up. In fact, she went to bed better last night than she has in previous nights! Hopefully this keeps up. Here are some pictures. Not many, but some.

Andrew's glam shot. Cute, right? *dripping sarcasm*

 She's started this "biting my lower lip" thing. SO cute!

It was really fun to go back to my college town, but it made me realize how much I've grown. It's definitely not my scene anymore and can I tell you how weird it was to be walking around a college apartment complex with a baby?
Part of the fun was spending time with Kara and her roommates (all new freshman) and recognizing the same ideas and feelings that existed when I was a new freshman. I loved college, but that part of my life is over and I'm so happy to be in this new stage of life as a mother and homemaker.
