Sick.

Ugh. Last week was a rough one for me. I started getting a cough Sunday night into Monday, which turned into a full on flu like death feeling Tuesday 😦 Luckily it wasn’t the flu but having this cough as well as a sore throat from coughing so much really slowed me down last week!

First, lets back up to last weekend though since I’ve been slacking!

Last weekend, my roommate from last year, Maya, came down to visit all of us! Even though I live pretty close to her at home, a lot of my roommates hadn’t seen her since May!! So I was really excited for them to see her 🙂

We all had a blast catching up and did SO much.  We went to Colonial Williamsburg last Saturday which was great.  The weather was absolutely perfect for strolling around the streets.  The first thing we did when we got there was go to the candy store. Man that candy store has the most amazing sweets! I got a small bag of double chocolate prailine covered almonds. I pretty much finished the whole bag that day! haha

After getting our sugar fix we just walked up and down the main drag.  Lots of costumed performers were out and it was so neat seeing their outfits.  I’m a sucker for any type of old time costume.

We may have also had some fun trying on the hats too ;)

We may have also had some fun trying on the hats too. Why is this style not worn anymore?? haha 😉

It was also really neat seeing some of the carriages too! The horses and the carriages are so beautiful.

After walking around Williamsburg for awhile we then went to dinner at Outback Steakhouse, then went to our last home football game of the season.  Our team won, but I was more excited about the fact that our marching band played an Aerosmith song!! (Dream On if you wanted to know what song 😉 Sunday was pretty chill, we all had homework to catch up on but then we ordered pizza for dinner.  This may sound crazy but I couldn’t remember the last time I’d had takeout pizza! We got stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut and OMG it was amazing.  I’m never waiting that long to have pizza again. haha!

Nothing too exciting happened this past week, besides feeling deathly ill.  I did go to Kroger this week even though it’s the furthest grocery store from where I live.  The only reason I went there was to find Amy’s veggie burgers, which are my favorite! I’ve looked all over the city I live in and couldn’t find them anywhere. But Kroger actually had them!!! Yeah I know what you’re thinking, my life is pretty cool, I get excited over veggie burgers….

Anyways, after feeling like crap all week I finally bit the bullet and went to an urgent care on Saturday to see if I could get a diagnosis and some medicine to help my symptoms.  My awesome friend Em went with me which I’m so thankful for! We both couldn’t really understand what the doctor said (he talked really fast!) but basically he thinks I’m at the tail end of whatever virus I have since my coughing is getting worse.

The best part about our trip to the urgent care though? The shopping center right across from it had puppies outside of the pet store!!!!!!!!!!! Em and I nearly died, we were on cloud 9.  These puppies were SO stinking cute. And I felt instantly better after petting the little furballs 🙂 I mean really who couldn’t resist faces like these?!?!

This little guy was my favorite. If I didn’t already have 2 dogs at home, and if we could have dogs in our apartment…I would have totally gotten him!

That’s all I have for now.  This week is literally going to be the worst of this semester.  I have something major due in every single one of my classes, and being sick is definitely not helping my motivation to do any of it! Oh well, Thanksgiving break will be even more worth it when it gets here!

Have a great week!
