My family was able to come up today for a visit! I haven't seen them since a quick two-day visit over Christmas break, so it was good to catch up with them. They only stayed a few hours, thanks to the crappy weather, but we had fun anyways.
First, we headed to Mellow Mushroom to feast on gluten-free pizzas! They were delicious, as always (and I stole all the leftovers).

After stuffing our faces, we walked around and shopped for a while. My mom is really good at running off, so we spent about half the time shopping, and half the time trying to figure out where she had gone. There is a really neat place here that is a giant store with different vendor booths inside. We spent a long time just looking at everything. I should have taken pictures, because they had some really cool stuff!
We had to stop for coffee to refuel, obviously. I got a raspberry white chocolate latte with skim milk. SO delicious! (Dare I say it rivaled Starbucks?)
We also stopped at the Mast General Store so that my mom could restock on delicious home made pumpkin and apple butter. I couldn't decide between the pumpkin butter, the pecan syrup, or the giant barrels of candy.
Candy won. This bag should last me at least a few days. Now, having a sweet tooth runs in our family, but my sister is like the definition of the term. She got over 2lbs of candy and had to carry it out in a shopping bag. I am surprised she still has teeth.
Later, we said goodbye to my family (I am bummed out already) and they headed back home. Zach and I had to go out, so we stopped at a new frozen yogurt place that I had a coupon for. It's called Frogurt, and holy cow they have so many toppings. I don't think I have ever seen so many. I got a little bit of everything.
Tomorrow, we are going over to a friend's house to watch the Super Bowl. I'll be honest, I don't actually even know who is playing in it. I just go for the food and commercials. But I am making some killer spinach dip (I hope), so I'll make sure to post the recipe if it is any good!
This weekend has been a lot of fun already, and I don't want it to end. But I have been working on a Molecular Biology lab report for the past few hours, so I guess I should get back to that. I wish my lab instructor would accept blog entries about all the food I eat instead.
