We had a great weekend here in Seattle! The best news was that my beloved school, the University of Washington Huskies beat USC in football, and they were ranked #3!! We had a horrible season last year, so this big win really has charged us up again and I can't wait for the rest of the season!
To celebrate the big win, that night Nick and I met up with a group of friends at Fremont's Oktoberfest. You buy tokens and then go from tent to tent tasting different types of beers. It was a total blast and had lots of good and unique beers (has anyone ever heard of watermelon beer before?! Think a watermelon jolly rancher with a beer aftertaste). So much fun!
And tonight, I met up with my cousin Lauren (she actually isn't my first cousin, but in a huge Italian family like mine, we don't distinguish first cousins from third cousins, it's all just in the "cousins" umbrella otherwise things get way too confusing), who was in Seattle on a stop-over from her many travels. We haven't seen each other in so long, but keep in touch via facebook and blogs, so it was great to see her in person and catch up.
