This weekend was an Alma Mater kind of weekend. On Friday night, I was back at my old stomping grounds–Penn State–to watch my sister receive an award for achieving a 4.0 GPA. On Saturday night, I went to Jimmy’s old high school to watch a girl from my church compete in gymnastics!
Watching Hannah receive her award and visiting my old college was great. I’m so incredibly proud of Hannah. Seeing my old professors and walking around the halls I spent hours studying in had me feeling a mix of nostalgia and relief. Nostalgia because I can look back on those days and smile. Relief because I’m glad I don’t have homework anymore 😉
The gymnastics meet was awesome. It was actually the level three states competition! If you’re not familiar with gymnastics lingo, that probably doesn’t mean much to you, but it’s definitely a big deal!
I watched her and her teammates compete, took pictures with my DSLR camera for the parents, and missed the days when I used to do gymnastics! I’d love to get back into it, but I’ve been saying that for years now. Maybe someday 😉
Besides spending time and mine and Jimmy’s respective alma maters, I also reached a whole new level of cat obsession.
Malcolm’s new toy came in the mail, and I filmed him tearing it apart (complete with hardcore background music) to show just how much he loves these bird toys! Lola even made a little appearance since she likes the bird toys, too. Actually, I suspect she just likes to play with Malcolm’s toys because they’re his.
My mom and I also filmed a vlog together earlier in the week. She got a new job with the PA Department of Environmental Protection and had to buy some new work clothes. I helped her pick some outfits out and we had a fun day together. I love filming days like that so I can look back on them!
I also pet sat over the weekend. I took one client’s dog to the pet store just for fun and bought her a treat. That was my wild Saturday afternoon–taking someone else’s dog to the pet store 🙂
Jimmy and I had church on Sunday and were able to grill and eat outside since it was so warm out. I love this season!
