Fall Break 2013 was a success! I managed to get a lot of rest and relaxation, as well as check off a bunch of things on my to-do list.
I started off my break by traveling to St. Joseph, MO to visit some college friends of ours who were expecting a baby. Luckily, the baby didn’t come while we were there, so we got to spend one last weekend with them before their lives changed forever. Congrats to them on their beautiful baby boy who was born on Saturday!
Nick and I also attended the Red Barn Craft Festival here in Kirksville. We managed to score some local honey and a pumpkin! Then on Tuesday we traveled to Jefferson City, MO so Nick could attend some training for his new job. We had a lot of fun dining out and shopping!
I spent the rest of the week at home doing lots of cleaning, baking, and projects. I finished making an album of our trip to Ireland. I also designed and ordered out Christmas cards, wrote our family Christmas letter, and updated my addresses. I wrote a paper for my med letters class, as well as filled out my scholarship application and wrote my personal statement for our upcoming rotations match. And, best of all, I finally got to try out my new banneton by baking some French Bread (see the picture below).
All in all, it was a good break. I am sad that it is over. I have to go study now….ugh.
