The weekend right after my internship ended my family along with Chris and his family headed up to Harrison Hot Springs for some soaking in the hot springs, to show my parents the resort, and to do some wedding stuff.
The weekend was a success. Chris and I figured out our menu and it was a great way to relieve my stress from the past 12 weeks of pretending to be a physical therapist. Plus the sun came out and the weather was absolutely beautiful.

The following week was spent exercising, organizing, relaxing, seeing friends, and sleeping. The weekend was fun, but nothing too notable. Over the weekend I went to a friend's birthday party and my mom and I took a 10 mile run from Enatai Beach into Medina.
The following weekend was a little bit more exciting. I woke up early on Friday morning (and by early I mean 8:30 or 9am) and took a short run. I was all packed up and ready to head out to Eastern WA, Lake Chelan to be exact for my bachelorette party! I had never been to Chelan and I thought this would be a perfect place to celebrate my last few (months) moments for singledom. I didn't want anything crazy, just wine tasting and to hang out with my girlfriends; Chelan was the perfect pairing. I wish all of my girlfriends could have made it, but it was the perfect time.

The following week, Rebecca was available during the day, so we decided to take the Theo's Chocolate tour. This tour entails learning about how chocolate is harvested and created into the delicious chocolate bar that you can buy and enjoy in the store. The best part of the tour is they give you a lot of chocolate to sample. I think I had at least an entire candy bar throughout the entire tour (I'm not complaining),

I am currently back in Orange, CA and back in school. The first week is over of my second to last semester in the actual classroom! It was really good to see everyone, I just wish it wasn't in this situation. To celebrate completing the first week back, a couple of us girls went out for some beers! It was a nice way to end a long week.
