Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! Homecoming is on saturday so this week was spirit week! We started the week off with pajama day (my favorite) followed by tie dye day, Hawaiian day, and finally school spirit day to get ready for the pep rally! My friends and I have gotten really into the themes and have dressed up every day- it's the little things like this that make senior year so fun. Tomorrow I will be at school all day working at tables for various clubs, cheering on our teams, and finally going to my last homecoming dance. Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? 

One: Cape Cod
Last weekend my family and I went to the cape for part of the long weekend. I had not been back since school started and it was so nice to go for beach walks, pop into the candy store, and just relax in my favorite place. 

Two: Foliage
On Monday my friends and I made the three hour journey up to Franconia Notch State Park in New Hampshire. I have been dying to go on a scenic dive throughout New England during this time of year and oh my gosh did it not disappoint. The foliage is absolutely breathtaking everywhere you look. This year I really want to go on more day trips with friends and take advantage of all the awesome places just a few hours from home. 

Three: Hiking
Once we got to Franconia Notch, we set out on a 4 mile hike. I have not been on a real hike in two or three years and now I can't wait to go on more. If you are familiar with the area, we did the Lonesome Lake trail which is the perfect half day hike. The trail is pretty steep, however the views of the lake at the top are so pretty and worth the trek. There is an AMC hut at the top of the trail that we stopped at for homemade cookies and hot apple cider, which was just what we needed as the temperature started to drop quickly. After last weekend's fun adventure, we definitely want to try an overnight hike next time!
