Weekend Recap

Hey gals! I hope you guys had a great Halloween weekend. Mine was super fun, so I thought that it would be appropriate to share what I did! 

I caught a cold on Wednesday, and felt under the weather for pretty much the whole weekend. Hopefully I'll be healthy again soon! I didn't have school on Friday (#blessed), but I did have high school soccer practice at 6:30 am, which was less than ideal. After I got home from that, I showered and attempted to nap, but I can never nap so I ended up just pinning away on Pinterest #typical. Friday night was my high school's pink out football game, so I went over to one of my friend's house and got ready for that. If there had been a most pink contest, we would've won- ha! My high school crushed the opponent and it was a fun night. 

Saturday was Halloween! I'm not the biggest fan of Halloween, but this year's was definitely one of my favorites! In the morning, I carved my pumpkin (nothing like the last minute) and I think it came out super cute/looks like a 6 year old carved it.

Later, using the seeds from my cat-pumpkin, I made some cinnamon sugar pumpkin seeds (recipe here).

I'm a freshman in high school, so this is probably my last year trick-or-treating, so I wanted to do something really fun. I invited 10 friends from school over and we ate and then went trick or treating, and then hung out after. 

One of my best friends,Victoria, and I dressed up as Blair and Serena from Gossip Girl, and I think our costumes turned out really well. I did a post all about my costume, which you can read here.

Here's a group photo of everyone "in-character". Everyone's costumes were really cute and creative (How funny is Donald Trump in the right corner? What's funnier is that he said "Trick or Trump" when we knocked on peoples' doors!). 

On Sunday, I didn't do much except homework and some blogging. Why is it that on long weekends we have more homework? Sigh. 

What did you do this weekend?



  1. Seems like you had a fun weekend, Alyssa! I love how your Serena costume turned out!
