I had big plans to tell you all about my weekend last night when I got home from Pittsburgh, but I didn't roll into town until after 1am and decided that I was just too tired.  So I went to bed instead.  But now, I'm ready to tell you allllll about my weekend of fun.

Friday I interviewed.  I'm making a habit of not talking much about them because I plan on figuring out what I think about them all in one weekend hidden away in a cabin in the mountains with a hot tub and a glass of wine.

After the interview, I went back to Amy's apartment, and then we headed out to dinner in heaven, I mean, Chocolatea.  They have, dare I say, the most delicious hot chocolate in the entire world.  Seriously.  It tastes like melted chocolate in a cup with various added flavors.  After dinner, we went back to her apartment and her fiance came over.  We half watched a movie, half fell asleep on the couch (hey, it happens when you only get 2 hours of sleep the night before).  On Saturday (you will note the theme of food during this weekend...), we walked about a mile to Miss Shirley's for brunch.  They have one of the most excellent brunch menu's I have ever seen.  I got eggs Benedict with crab and corn.  It was soooo delicious.  I'd like to learn to poach an egg.  There's were so pretty...
I think mine would not be so pretty.

On our way home, we got suckered into buying girl scout cookies (okay, maybe not suckered).  I really should learn not to buy things like that when I have to pack them in a small suitcase...

We spent a little time sitting on the couch doing nothing before heading down to Inner Harbor.  They have this nifty shuttle that's FREE and uses hybrid buses, so we publicly transported ourselves everywhere we needed without spending a penny.  Excellence.  Anyway, we wandered around inner harbor for a bit, went into the giant Barnes and Noble (I love that place), and then wandered towards little Italy for some lunch.  And what else would a person have for lunch in little Italy, but VACCARO'S!!!!
I contemplated getting something new on this trip, but 1) I'm pretty sure I've had at least a taste of everything on the menu, and 2)  I really love the Santa Maria (waffle, baci gelato, hot fudge, wet nuts, whipped cream, and a cherry).  Ohhh delicious.  Can you believe that this is a quarter waffle, and it's possible to order something 4 times as big!?  It's true.  I think Amy's brownie sundae may have actually been close to 4 times this big.  Sorry I didn't take a picture, I was too busy eating.

After Vaccaro's and lots of time sitting and catching up, we headed back to her apartment, sat on the couch some more, and then made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner.  Then I packed up, and we hit the sack.  I originally was going to have to get up at like 4AM to catch my flight, but it was cancelled and pushed back to 11, so I didn't have to leave until 8.  That was splendid!

After sadly leaving Baltimore, I headed up to Pittsburgh for another interview.  I got into the hotel just in time for dinner, then came home and crashed pretty fast (thus no blogging). 

Yesterday, I interviewed again, and then jumped on a flight to Charlotte.  We were delayed a bit, so I ended up not getting to the airport until about 11:30, which made for a long drive home.  Good thing I had girl scout cookies to eat for dinner!

Now I need to pack again (well, unpack first I suppose) to head home in the morning for Thanksgiving!!!  I hope there's not too much traffic!

Peace out.

I think you still owe me a Vaccaro's visit from about my 19th birthday... just sayin...
