After the tour, we went to the scoop shop and got a few more samples. I tried one of the new Saturday Night Live flavors called Gilly's Catastrophic Crunch. It was absolutely delicious! Once we finished our ice cream, we had some fun exploring, including playing on the playground and walking through the Flavor Graveyard.

The next morning, we went to Sneakers for breakfast in the Winooski circle - just down the street from Saint Mike's. I had heard of it before but never gone. Some of my friends from my Practicum class strongly encouraged me to check it out. Unfortunately we had to wait a while before we were seated, but the food was totally worth the wait!
Once we were full of delicious breakfast, I took the girls back to Saint Mike's to show them my townhouse and some of my favorite parts of campus. It was really cool to be able to show them what I've been talking to them about for four years now. We spent a lot of time hanging out in the word garden - I think that might have been the girls' favorite part of campus!

this weekend as well as in general - SMC is a very huggy place!
Though I know I could've gotten more homework done this weekend, I'm really happy that I gave myself a break (I had to hand in a partial draft of my senior thesis last week!) to have fun AND check off a few things on my Saint Mike's Bucket List. To be honest, finding a balance between work and relaxation is always a challenge, but hopefully it'll all be worth it in the end!
Thanks for taking the time to read my post! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me or contact me via Twitter. Have a great week everyone!
