Weekend Wrap-Up in Pictures: College Style

in Other

It was a gooooood weekend.  Let’s just leave it at that.  Well, I guess I will leave you with some pictures to recap it a bit, too!

Oh, and p.s. Happy March.  Aka the best month ever.  Aka my birthday month! 😉

Lunch at Zombie Burger in Des Moines- The Raygun burger w/ a veggie patty, sans bacon & a side of coleslaw.

Shopping.  So excited to finally see shorts out in the stores.  I picked up this pair, a new shirt, and 2 pairs of jeans.

Shopping makes me thirsty.  And apparently it also makes me crave pop 😉


Old college roomies.

Some Cards Against Humanity fun before dinner.


Dinner at Rock Bottom Brewery

…where we drank…

…and ate.  I ordered the veggie tacos with rice and beans.  I ate every single bite.


Blue Moon Dueling Piano Bar.


Drinks, pictures, and photo bombers.


All of the girls.

weekend des moines

had to order this beer.  It is from Exile Brewing Company and is called Hannah.  It was tasty and the fact that it has “aromas of banana” sure seems pretty fitting for me 😉

No pictures from the next morning, which is probably for the better, but I will leave you with this gem:

Showing my Iowa pride with my workout attire.  I am convinced it made my lifting and HIIT sessions even better! 😉

I hope you all had as great of a weekend as I did!  It really flew by and I am sad that it is over, but I have another great weekend to look forward to in a few days!

    I loooove banana-y beers! I get a hefeweizen everytime I see one on a tap list, just for the banana flavor. Looks like you had a great weekend, glad you had fun.

      This was the first one that I had tried, but I really liked it!

      They are the BEST! I am sure you are going to have fun in KC. Are you going to the Power and Lights District? I have heard great things about it.

    I am impressed that you were able to only order pop at DQ! A vanilla cone with sprinkles would have called my name :) cute going-out shirt, love it! Meredith recently posted...small victories, big victoriesMy Profile

      Haha, it is only because I had a major craving for pop! Otherwise, ice cream would have definitely won over ;).
  • Ang @ Nutty for Life March 3, 2014, 9:15 am
    Sounds like SUCH a fun weekend! Much better than the weekend I had but I digress :) I imagine after I graduate I will be aching for nights like these with my college friends. I'm going to miss them dearly – most are moving to the west. It's my birthday month toooooo! let's party. Ang @ Nutty for Life recently posted...On Finding My Fitness GooveMy Profile

  • Meghan @ fitnesscrEATures March 3, 2014, 11:15 am
    WHAT a fun weekend you had! And Rock Bottom is delicious! :) I can't believe you say pop! I used to say pop until I moved to the south and they were like WHAT is pop? Um, hello, it's what you guys call Coke. But seriously, you want a sprite? order a coke! Want a fanta? You still order a Coke. Ay yi yi, the South....

      Haha, I ONLY call it pop!! It would be SO confusing to refer to everything as Coke!
  • Lucie March 3, 2014, 11:41 am

    It looks like you had an awesome weekend! I think it's hard being away from friends. Most of my college friends moved home so it's always so nice to get to see them! Nicole @ FruitnFitness recently posted...Granny’s Jello – a holiday traditionMy Profile

  • Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut March 6, 2014, 3:22 pm
    Looks like you had fun in the great state of Iowa! It's weird..now that I don't live in Nebraska anymore...even when someone mentions Iowa I feel like I know the area better than Minnesota haha. Also, thank you for calling it "pop." I get made fun of and have to call it soda up here! ;) Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut recently posted...Did You Know…10 Surprising Benefits of WalnutsMy Profile
    • ClnEatingVegGrl March 6, 2014, 8:44 pm
      Iowa is such a great state! :) And yes, "pop" is a must!! That is the only right way to say it ;)
