From Kim DeGiulio:
Hope you all had a great weekend!
I certainly enjoyed the extra hour of sleep on Sunday. I needed it! However, this morning I looked at my kitchen oven clock, which I hadn't turned back yet, and I had a solid 5 second panic attack. I thought I had woken up too late and The Morning Show had already started. Does that ever happen to you? It's the scariest feeling! I get that feeling way too often. When I wake up on the weekends and I look at my clock, there's always that split second when I'm like OH NO! Then I remember it's the weekend and I'm allowed to sleep in. I'm a really heavy sleeper so I usually wake up completely out of it. Nothing that a cup of coffee can't fix though!
My husband and I spent the weekend in Washington, D.C. My sister-in-law just moved there, so we wanted to go see her new place. We have a lot of friends who live there too so we all went to the Michigan vs. Maryland game on Saturday. It was so much fun! We love going to at least one Michigan game on the road every year. It's a fun excuse to get away and it's always more fun when Michigan wins. The best part about winning before a Bye week is that you can celebrate that victory for two weeks straight! We'll be at the next game, which is the always highly anticipated Michigan vs. Michigan State. No matter what each schools record is, that's always an exciting game. It's such a fun rivalry. I'm looking forward to it!
