The excitement of the week was Wednesday, when Kellie Ann and Reza came over for dinner and then pumpkin carving. We had bought the pumpkins while up at Helen so we were finally getting around to carving them, just in time for Halloween! Dinner was homemade baked sweet and sour chicken with rice and Kellie Ann brought over Joe's favorite buffalo chicken dip that he had been craving all week! After dinner was done we grabbed some wine and headed to the rooftop to carve our pumpkins! Kellie Ann and Reza decided to do a ghost while Joe and I decided to do Buzz and a GT in honor of homecoming weekend! We figured that way we had an excuse to light it after Halloween had passed and we could show off our Tech spirit! We had such a good time carving pumpkins and roasting pumpkin seeds!

Before we knew it, it was the weekend again and the festivities began. This was homecoming weekend for Georgia Tech which always means that everyone comes back into town! On top of that, it was Alumni weekend for the swim team so I knew we had an exciting weekend in store. Friday, the house was all decorated for fall and ready for all of our visitors! Courtney was the first to arrive so it was great getting some time with her to catch up and take Rox on a walk since we wouldn't have too much time for her this weekend. After our walk we got dinner in the oven and cupcakes made so that we were ready for everyone else to arrive. Joe and I had dinner before getting ready for the evening full of fun. A couple swimmers were staying at our place for the weekend so we opened some bottles of wine and enjoyed the rooftop on a brisk evening. Some of Joe's friends came over as well, and Dillon, one of Joe's best friends was in town so he had a great time catching up with him. We then headed out to Ivy for a night of dancing and fun! We had a lovely NYU BFF reunion at Ivy and it was so good FINALLY getting to see Sarah Anderson even if it was only for a little bit!

Sunday morning we got up and said our goodbyes to everyone that had stayed at our place this weekend and after breakfast went back to bed. We must have been exhausted because we woke up and it was lunch time. After relaxing for a bit, Andy and Meredith stopped by so we caught up with them. We then planned meals for the week and headed to Kroger before eating dinner. After a long and exciting weekend, it was nice to have a low key Sunday so that we are ready for another week! It was so fun getting to see everyone in town this weekend and I was so sad to see everyone go. Why can't everyone just live in Atlanta? Now, an early bed time is much needed to get ready for another week of work!
