Niagara Weekend

This weekend my housemates and I are traveling to Niagara Falls (where on of them, my bff DW, lives) to show our German and Polish friends one of Canada's greatest treasures.

Today we saw the Falls, and they are GORGEOUS, especially at night, when they are lit from behind in a whole slue of different colors. After losing a game of rock, paper, scissors, Nora forced me to go up the Niagara Sky Wheel (much scarier than a ferris wheel) at night. Once our little pod started shaking, I completely lost my nerves. So scary!  However, we were lucky enough to go on at the right time, because halfway through our ride we saw some beautiful fireworks over the Falls. So I suppose the amazing visual end to our day was worth my momentary freakout.

Tomorrow we head over to the American side to do a little shopping. I'm so excited to visit the J Crew and Kate Spade outlets.  We have our Commerce semiformal coming up next weekend, so I'm hoping to find a new dress.

Then it's off at 6am Monday morning for the 5 hour drive back to school.  I'm definitely going to have to stop by Starbucks to get some sustenance.

Happy Weekend (and Go Gators)!
