Chilly Days

Where has this year gone? I mean wow, I can’t believe how fast it is going. We are now into October and the days are getting colder and colder. I love it! Everything about this weather is wonderful Β (when you’re dressed properly that is) boots, jeans, scarves, sweaters!

I had a great time with momma this weekend and as always it seemed like there was never enough time. It really flew by and I wish she could have stayed another week, but she promised she would be up again soon. Friday when she got in we ran went out to lunch at Carolina Ale House and then had to hurry back so Ally and I could get ready for the first ever Induction to the NC State Hall of Fame.

Talk about an amazing experience! I got all dressed up and watched the first ever class of greats to be inducted into the NC State Hall of Fame. Reynolds was transformed into a glittering place! It was really beautiful and the desserts were good too πŸ˜‰ The highlight of the night was being able to say I walked NC State’s Roman Gabriel down the red carpet to be inducted. How awesome is that! I wish I had a picture or something, but unfortunately I have no pictures from the night except one of Ally and I and the lighting is weird from all the red so we look slightly demonic.

Once I got back, momma and I headed to Sushi 9 (the second time for me that week) because I needed real food. Somewhere along the lines my back locked up and I ended up having really weird pain that caused me to have to sit out of the NCSU vs FSU game. Total bummer I know because that was an incredible, nail-biting game! 17-16! Holy intense last seconds batman!

After the game, I got to enjoy all the wonderful food momma had made me while I was away. Tacoritos! Black bean and corn salsa! Queso! YUMMY! I stuffed myself and then fell right to sleep. The next morning we woke up craving good southern breakfast. Logically our minds went right to cracker barrel. We found the closest one and had the whole day planned out. Leisurely breakfast, pumpkin patch, carve pumpkins, make homemade mac and cheese. So we got ready and headed out. Then I learned I had a mandatory practice from 1-4…

Needless to say we killed some time in cracker barrel until we realized we were never going to get called in time, momma bought me a really adorable halloween mug, we went through the bruggers drive through and then I changed rapidly into practice clothes while she packed. She ended up leaving stuff (love when she does that) We said a hurried good-bye and I have no been living off of the yummy food she has left me since then.


Anyway, I’ve had these past two days off of practice, which has been good for my back but I still have to see the doctor about it tomorrow. I also don’t have any tests this week so I have been spending my time getting ahead homework wise and even studying for my genetics test that is on Monday because I need to do extremely well on it. I actually don’t mind school when I don’t have exams. The pressure goes wayyy down and I actually want to go back through the material and work things out. Weird how that happens.

Anyone ever heard of The Walking Dead? It is a show about zombies that actually really is awesome! I’m slightly obsessed. Season 3 starts on Sunday and I have to have season 2 finished by then but they just put it on Netflix and I am already about to start episode 10. Days without practice and no tests are the greatest!

couldn’t help myself


NCSU vs. South Alabama

This weekend was a great way to really kick off the football season with our home opener against South Alabama! The weather was great for football on Saturday and it was a night game, that we won! Even if the team wasn’t that great, a win is a win πŸ˜‰

I was really busy during the week so I didn’t get around to posting as much as I would have liked to, but things should be better this week! Saturday morning when we woke up, Momma Hams, Daddy Hams and grandmother were hard at work transforming our humble abode into a breakfast buffet for about 30-40 of our closest friends (read: teammates) We somehow managed to fit them all in and fed them waffles with fruit, omelets, bacon, bagels with cream cheese, and yogurt and granola. The Hamlets are absolutely amazing and I couldn’t have imagined it running any smoother! Thanks again Mom and Dad πŸ˜‰

Then it was time for the dread hair curling task, couldn’t get this lion’s mane done without the help of my roommates! I know they will be glad next year when we graduate and they never have to curl my hair again. (oh what a weird and scary thought, is next year really my senior year?!?!)

Dad, Katherine and Buster shortly arrived and we headed to campus so I could get my ankle taped and meet for the game. Then it was time for a few pictures, loading the bus and we were on our way! The game was probably one of the fastest I have ever cheered. Warm up and pregame…probably the longest haha But we finished up with a win and it was time to take my tired body to get some food! Of course there is no where better for a post-game meal then Carolina Ale House πŸ™‚ I ordered a veggie flat bread that did not come out as I expected, but was still pretty good.

Once I got back it was time for a shower and to cuddle with my little man. I loved having Buster in the apartment. The rents should watch out, having a pet made everything more enjoyable this morning πŸ˜‰ Once Daddy and Katherine got to the apartment we headed to Target to pick up a few things and then, upon finding out pictures were cancelled due to rain (hallelujah) we headed over to the farmers market to check things out.

he liked cuddling in Meredith’s bed

Holy awesome farmers market batman!! Nothing says fall like giant pumpkins, funny gourds and the smell of apple cider πŸ™‚ We picked up some veggies and delicious apples and then it was time to head home. I also got all the ingredients for white bean and kale soup (eeepppp so excited)

how awesome do these look!

pretty mums

more mums πŸ™‚

Daddy and Katherine got all the rest of my shelves hung up (thank you very much) and it adds even more to my room! Once it is totally pulled together I will take pictures to put up here. I also plan on doing Β a post about all the Β great dinners being made in the apartment lately.

Once everyone left, it was time to relax! I didn’t move off the couch except to attempt to clean my room and make some dinner all day and I loved every minute of it. I’m sure my body is thanking me too. Tomorrow everything starts fresh though with classes, appearances, lift and practice.

I’m off to bed, I’m pretty sure we have testing in the morning for lift (yikes)

To get you in a good mindset for monday, jot down some things you are thankful for. πŸ™‚
