Knock, knock

Wellll helllloooo,

Yes, I am still alive and yes, still blogging. I did take a slight hiatus because school and my competition prep has kept me busier than usual! But, I have some fun recaps to share as to what I have been up to!

I am two weeks out from my competition in Spokane and I couldn’t be more pumped. I have struggled a lot this prep with staying motivated and on track but these past few months have been really eye opening. Once I got my suit I realized that it was all becoming real. As much as I would love to share progress photos.. I think I will save them until after I come back from my show.

Last week, Sidney, Lindsey and I decided last minute that we wanted to go the Jimmy Eat World concert. We had soooo much fun. I think we only knew like two or three songs but we danced in the crowd and had a great time anyways. I love that we were all able to share this experience together even though we didn’t know any of the lyrics.

 

On Friday, MY BEST FRIEND GOT MARRIED. Helllll ya. Not only did she get married but I was able to be apart of the big day. It was so beautiful to watch her and her (now)husband tie-the-knot. Not to mention that her maid of honor and I cut a freaking rug on the dance floor (if you didn’t know already – I LOVE to dance).

On Sunday evening, my friends Nat, Jess and I went to the pumpkin patch. ‘Tis the season! I love Fall. I love the weather, the smells, the food. We took a hay ride up to the top of the corn maze, walked through and then picked out which pumpkins to carve. I was especially excited because we are having a ‘pumpkin carving party’ when I get back from my show on the 29th! I love to celebrate the holidays surrounded by friends and family.

Even though this post was ‘short and sweet’ I will definitely keep you guys in the loop of my last two weeks of cutting! Stay tuned!

Hi, Bozeman. It’s me, Christine.

Happy Labor Day weekend, friends! I hope you are all enjoying some R&R and taking some time to yourselves. got to spend this weekend celebrating Miss Becca’s bachelorette party in Bozeman, Montana!

I know I have mentioned Becca before but she is one of my best friends. She is getting married October 6th and I cannot wait. We picked Bozeman because it is a local college town and we knew that people there would be down to party (def a perk that it is only 2 hours away).

We rolled in Saturday afternoon and went straight to Target to buy some booze to pregame. Unfortunately, I can’t drink because I am on prep but I was totally a cheerleader for these girls. Of course we took pictures before heading to dinner.

We didn’t make reservations anywhere for dinner, why? we don’t know, so we ended up going to a place called Teds. Their food was amazing. Becca and I both had bison filet and it cut. like. butter. I have never been that impressed with a steak in my life!

I ordered asparagus and squash casserole as a side. And there was a garlic glaze that sat on top of the steak. I love the presentation of it all; almost too cute to eat! We got a few ‘before’ pictures of the bride but didn’t get any ‘afters’ (maybe just a few in-betweens).

 

We went to a bar called ‘Rocking R’ to hang out until 11pm (which I guess is when the party starts in Bozeman?) The ladies had a few drinks there and we just kinda watched the Bozeman vs. Washington game and chatted until around 11pm and then headed out to the next bar! I don’t really remember the names of any of the other bars but the girls had me rolling. They were being so funny and apparently when Becca starts to drink, she wants to hook you up with every boy in sight. None of us came home with boyfriends soo… good luck, Becca. Better luck next time.

Around 1:30am we decided to head home. Well, Taco Bell and then home. Becca found a bachelor party walking down the street and they were carrying a pizza, she LITERALLY convinced these boys to give her some pizza. I was driving and I couldn’t stop laughing on the way back to the hotel.

The next morning we all woke up and decided we needed food STAT. We went to this place and there was over wait .. we then stumbled upon the Cateye Cafe and I was over the moon (for obvious reasons). The entire restaurant was decorated in cats. I couldn’t think of a better way to decorate, honestly.

THEY CALLED THE BATHROOM THE LITTER BOX FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. They had little cat books and games lining the windows so you would be entertained the entire time you were there.

After breakfast we walked downtown Bozeman to do some ‘light’ shopping (more or less, I’m the only one that bought anything and it was totally a romper).

On the way back we allowed Britt to pick the music. Therefore we listened to Eminem the entire time. I didn’t realize that his music was as deep as it was but I got an entire life lesson of Marshall Mathers. SO, if any of you want to challenge Britt to a Eminem rap battle, I would totally be down to watch.

Right now, I am wrapping up my Sunday snuggled up on my couch with my roommates watching Halloweentown. Most people know that I ‘like’ Halloween and Fall but I do tend to take it to the next level sometimes. We are already trying to decide what to be for Halloween because my friend Jayde and I are throwing a small Halloween party bash!

Anyways! Need to get off the computer to finish watching the movie with my friends. Stay tuned for Wednesday’s post!

Tata, friends!
