You Know You’ve Had a Good Weekend When…

…it began with some roasted chestnuts eaten in front of one of the oldest churches in Italy (strange dog barking at you not included).

…and a homemade single-serving gingerbread scone (gotta start celebrating festive fridays!).

…you managed to find a cornetto that had layers and cappuccino that tasted like coffee and not milk.

…said breakfast was enjoyed sitting down in a cozy cafe in a window seat.

…you got more squash than you knew what to do with (and didn’t impale yourself while cutting it open).

…you took numerous long walks through a rainy town and didn’t mind getting wet.

…you watched Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving on youtube, even though you don’t like Charlie Brown and have never seen the Thanksgiving episode before.

…you made a vegan stuffing and now have your meals for the rest of the week.

…Saturday night involved a strangely large cocktail that tasted like Strawberry Lemonade, a German guy ordering piña coladas and a French girl ordering Texas Iced Tea.

…you created a holiday-tastic list of 40 things to do before you go home with your mom.

…and sent her skype messages with a disturbing amount of emoticons.

…Sunday morning started with pumpkin pie pancakes.

…a homemade gingerbread latte the size of your head happened shortly thereafter.

…you even got a little bit of work done (take that year abroad essay number one!).

…you saw gorgeous foliage, trees without leaves and hints of real autumn everywhere you went.

…you took time out to work on NaNoWriMo.

…and read a good book.

…you cleaned out your google reader, and read some amazing things while doing so.

…you got to facebook chat for a bit with a friend you haven’t seen for a while and make tentative plans to see each other when you get home (IT WILL BE DONE!).

…you didn’t feel rushed, but managed to get quite a bit done.

…you realized you’re actually kind of excited for Monday morning.

What did you do this weekend?
