Coming off a pretty fulfilling and overall productive weekend in all aspects of my life. Friday we had an interning event volunteering with Junior Achievement, which meant a full day (7:30-2:00 😭) of teaching 3rd graders. This experience made me realize how tough teachers' jobs are and grateful for my teachers in my own life. PSA, go thank your teachers!!! Later that evening, some friends and I went out for dinner to celebrate the end of their internships (I have one week to go still!). I opted for the tofu and mushroom lettuce wraps + a huge glass of wine
A family friend from the Philippines who's currently studying at Duke came into town so it was family time for remainder of the weekend. Saturday morning was spent getting in some reading for my classes before venturing out for a late lunch in Fort Worth and a visit to the Kimbell art museum.
With Daylight Savings Time on Sunday, we had a late breakfast that morning: gruyere popovers, roasted broccoli and strawberries for me! The loss of an hour followed me throughout the day; I felt exhausted. It didn't help that we spent the entire afternoon shopping though I did not end up buying anything (yay for a good type of self control!).Capped off the night relaxing back at my apartment.
Over the weekend, I also caught up on blog reading including Alison's post from last week that she got from Tina of Carrots N Cake. It filled me with such nostalgia of answering these surveys on Facebook in my early high school days that I wanted to steal it too!
