Cincinnati + Dayton Weekend

Life has been pretty monotonous lately, so I haven't had much to blog about. This past weekend I went down to Cincinnati and Dayton. My brother was graduating from the University of Dayton, so I decided to head down a few days early to see friends in Cincinnati.

Thursday, May 1, 2014: I left my house around 8:30 after a bad start. I accidentally set my alarm for 7:30 pm instead of am! However, I did wake up at 7:45 which was a miracle. I had to be somewhere at 1:00 in Cincinnati, and I was rushing around to make sure I'd be able to make it. I stopped for a bagel/coffee and gas then I was on my way.

When I drove past the University of Cincinnati I was amazed at how different it looks after just two years! It made me realize how much I miss living down there. I was amazed that I made it with 20 minutes to spare. I headed to the school I did my student teaching at and met with my old mentor teacher. It brought back memories! That experience was one of the best of my life. I cannot believe they are all about the graduate. I wish I could make it, but adult life requires bills that need to be paid. I talked with my mentor teacher for about 45 minutes, and it was really great to catch up on life.

Next, I headed to Rohs to meet up with an old friend and roommate. It was great to talk to her over cappuccino's and chocolate covered espresso beans. I was really coffeed out at that point!

Around 5 I finally headed over to Haley's apartment. It was so good to see her! It was the first time I'd seen her in over a year (at her baby shower) and the first time I was able to meet Cora. We ran errands and picked up Indian food which I was crazing for weeks before. Every time I go down there we have to get Indian because there just aren't Indian restaurants up here like the one's in Cincinnati. That night we made some cupcakes to get ready for Cora's party.

Friday, May 2, 2014: The next day I woke up to food and coffee! Then we got ready for the day. First, we headed down to Findlay Market to look around and eat some Gelato from Dojo!






Afterwards, we headed to the Twin Lakes Lookout at Eden Park. This was seriously one of my favorite spots to go when I lived in Cincinnati. It has a great view of the Ohio River and I could sit there for hours.







After the park we headed back to Haley's apartment and did last minute preparations for Cora's party! More for that later! :)

    1. Totally down for that! I won't be able to make it before Asia, but maybe sometime around Labor Day or sometime in the fall so it's still nice enough to enjoy the weather!
