Thursday night one of my best friends came back to town! She's student teaching this semester for a third grade class (and loving it). She had a student teacher meeting on Friday, so she's staying with me and my flatmate for the weekend. It's so fun having her back for a few days.
Friday I have one class at 9 am. My parents got into town for a visit right after my class got out to since otherwise I wouldn't see them for 4 weeks. We had a nice time chatting, went out to eat, and then we went to a few stores to pick up a few things. I needed some dress pants for teaching this semester (I teach a class twice a week). We found a few pairs at Maurice's and then we went to Walmart where we went a bit crazy haha. My parents and I looked through the $5 CD bin and they found all their old favorite albums and I got a Diana Ross and the Supremes CD (because it's necessary). Then my mom and I ended up looking at the toys section and found the cute little tsum tsums. She bought 2 for my sister and I picked out my own for Valentine's day. I got an extra one that's a little raccoon and I've decided it's Meiko from Pocahontas.
Then in the evening another of my good friends came for the weekend! She's staying at another friend's apartment and I was so excited since I haven't seen her since she transferred 2 years ago! We've kept in contact though and it was SO great to see her and hang out! The three of us got Chinese take out and then played a game called fish bowl.
Saturday I slept in a bit, did some blog reading, and just watched TV and chatted with my friends. We watched Bend It Like Beckham in the afternoon - one of my favorite movies ever. Then in the evening we went out for a friend's birthday! Her birthday is actually on Valentine's Day, but we decided to celebrate this weekend since everyone was here - even our friend student teaching!

Sunday I enjoyed a little bit more time with my friends before they left. We got to enjoy one of our favorite TV shows (Law & Order SVU) and the Kitten Bowl. Honestly, I could watch cute kittens all day. They were so adorable and made me wish I had my own!
How did you spend your weekend? Did you get to spend any fun time with friends this weekend?
