Weekend Recap: Homecoming 2016

And the crazy weekend is over – woooohoooo!

Saturday my day started out pretty early with a trip to the gym. Had to get it in!

After an upper body + HIIT workout, it was off to the Homecoming tailgate!

It was actually a pretty slow tailgate for us this year, but we still had a good chunk of people stop by!

After the tailgate, we went back to the house (my office is in a house) and unloaded the truck/ate/sat down for a couple of minutes. Then the rest of the afternoon was spent running around campus, checking in on smaller reunions and getting our “After Party” tent all set up.

The After Party went all night and I was whooped. I got home around 9 p.m. and went straight to bed.

Sunday morning I slept in a little and then started in on my social media freelance … and was interrupted by a pug. πŸ™‚

I got done with my social around 3 and then cleaned the apartment as best I could, did laundry, went to the gym, went grocery shopping, meal prepped … and then died. Just kidding – but it was a pretty crazy “weekend” if you can even call it that.

This morning I got up at 5 (somehow) and got in a shoulders + HIIT workout.

Here’s to a productive week – last week before my travel month starts up. Madison (for fun) this weekend to visit my wonderful friend Lindsay and hopefully a TON more trips to Chicago next month. I’m telling you … I just need to be there permanently. πŸ˜‰

How was your weekend?
What are you doing for Halloween weekend?

    Yay, more Chicago! I love the dress you’re wearing today. I will be going to the WORLD SERIES this weekend. I can’t even believe that. And hopefully taking Victoria to a Halloween party on Sunday. Now I just gotta get through this workweek!

    • Jessie says:

      Yeah! I’ll be “in the area” for about a week and I might stay through the weekend. πŸ™‚ I can’t believe you’re going to the World Series – HOW CRAZY!!

    • Jessie says:

      Haha, my cousin came to visit and she brought her pug with πŸ™‚ Homecoming is great … if you don’t have to work it. πŸ˜‰ I hear you on that! I’m off to Madison this weekend, but at least it’ll be friend time.
