5 Good Years

Another British-inspired breakfast:

Egg in a Hole is so delicious! I use a bicycle water bottle to cut out a hole in the bread, put the slices on a greased griddle, and drop an egg in each hole.

The result is a slightly runny center surrounded by toast.  Those Brits are so smart.  πŸ™‚

 

And grapes:

To Do’s

 

I have some MAJORLY important things to get done today regarding the book and the upcoming Fat Talk Free Week.  Here’s to hoping its a productive day for me AND you, too!

 

Reminiscing

 

I couldn’t sleep last night and started to reminisce about my college days.  I went to the University of Pittsburgh.  Those 5 years (I graduated in 4 but stuck around for another year while the Husband finished school) were the best years of my life.

Freshman year, i lived in the β€œTowers” on the 16th floor.  I think my dorm assignment was fate because my two future best friends were in the rooms on either side of mine!

After a year, we all moved into a house, and I lived with my BFF and two other girls for three years.  That house was pretty crazy.  :)  Then, I moved into an an apartment with the Boyfriend – AKA Future Husband – AKA Husband.  This was out first bedroom.  A tapestry – how college of us.

College was crazy, but so full of experiences.  Friends made, friends lost (both literally and metaphorically), great classes, better parties…  And lots of sitting on porches.

DSCN5221

I got Maggie the August after I graduated.  She looks so young in this picture, but she was two years old.  We got James 6 months later.

College was great.  I wish I could go back and relive it, even the bad parts, all over again.

 

The last time I got to see my college girls was my wedding and Apple Blossom.  I’m thinking about going up north for a long road trip to visit everyone in January after the marathon.  I could just sleep on their couches and blog from their coffee tables for a week or so.  :)  Once the book is complete, I’ll have some time on  my hands if I don’t get a job right away… I should use that time wisely.

 

Did you/do you like college as much as I did?  What about high school?  Personally, I hated high school, with the exception of the fact that I met my friend Lisette there!

    i love college and high school.. more than uni at least.. cos in college and high school, classes were smaller, which made the whole class feel as a whole. and my bff was with me throughout high school.. and i miss her so much cos now she’s overseas..

    James is adorable btw!

  • megan October 15, 2009, 8:35 am

    I LOVED college as well! Until senior year when a guy broke my heart. That kind of ruined the experience for awhile. But i made a ton of great friends, and met my future husband so I have wonderful memories πŸ™‚ I went to Grove City College, which is about an hour north of Pittsburgh – I grew up in that area, so I know all the places you’re talking about and had a few friends that went to Pitt πŸ™‚

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is October 15, 2009, 8:35 am

    I love your pictures of Pittsburgh! That is so cool that you went to Pitt..I went to Duquesne so we weren’t very far away. Wonder if we bumped into each other!

  • maria October 15, 2009, 8:35 am

    I miss college so much some days. It was the best experience for me. It allowed me to truly realize who I was and to come into my own. I met the most amazing girls and grew even closer to my boyfriend (now husband). But most importantly it taught me how to be strong and stand on my own! πŸ™‚

  • Erica October 15, 2009, 8:36 am

    Cute post πŸ™‚ LOVED college. I went to Penn State. I worked in Pittsburgh for a while during one of my consulting giggs- seemed like a lot of fun. Love picture of baby Maggie.

  • Dori October 15, 2009, 8:45 am

    I didn’t love college. I didn’t find the right friends and it was a pretty lonely time. I chose to live in a jappy community my freshman year which was my first mistake, and it never really improved! I wish I could do it over again knowing what I know now and with more self awareness.

    I did LOVE high school though. I miss those years so much, I had so much fun there!

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat October 15, 2009, 8:48 am

    Ugh, I freakin’ hated high school too, don’t even want to think of it. College was great though. My only thing is I wish I’d gone away for college now. I stayed in my hometown because I was dating this guy (now my husband, ha ha)! But it was still a great experience and really taught me a lot about myself.

  • Christina October 15, 2009, 8:49 am

    I LOVED college SO much. I really miss those days.

    High school sucked.

  • Lara (Thinspired) October 15, 2009, 8:52 am

    I would definitely go back and re-live my college years, too. I would do it a little differently though and definitely have more FUN! I was so anxious to get out of there and now I have no idea why I was in such a hurry. I wish I could give my collegiate self some advice from my married, twenty-something self!
    Cute pics though—I like the tapestry! πŸ˜‰

  • Sara October 15, 2009, 8:52 am

    I LOVED LOVED LOVED college! I HATED high school thought! I would go back to college in a heart beat! You think you are ready to leave but when you finally leave and get out into the world you would give anything to get back there. Of course, it helped that I met my future husband there πŸ™‚

  • emily October 15, 2009, 8:54 am

    I loved high school and college. I was kind of wild in high school (where I’m from the drinking age is 18) so I got most of the “college experiences” out of my system and got to be fairly calm in college. Both experiences were fun. I only get to see my college friends once or twice a year because we live on opposite ends of the country. However, one of my best friends is meeting me in SF for the Foodbuzz Festival, I can’t wait!!

  • Bridget October 15, 2009, 8:56 am

    Floor 16!!!! Nostalgia….

    I miss Pitt a lot, too! It was definitely a great place to go to college! During winter break, I’ll be having a reunion with some of my best Pitt friends (one from 16) in NYC.

    High school was wretched, and I wouldn’t want to go back–ever.

  • Sara October 15, 2009, 8:57 am

    Looks like you had so much fun in college. I just got accepted into PITT yesterday actually!! I’m thinking about going either their, Temple U, or Boston U.

    Have a great day!

    • caitlin October 15, 2009, 9:05 am

      pitt is so much fun!!! go there!!!!!!!!!!

      • Sara October 15, 2009, 11:03 am

        haha, I’m thinking about it…alot of my friends went there…im just nervous about some of the huge class sizes haha

        • Ana October 15, 2009, 11:54 am

          i’m not sure how huge the classes are at pitt, but i did my undergrad at LSU and most of my classes were 300+ and really weren’t that bad! there is so much more to a good school then class size..don’t let that stop you!

  • Anne October 15, 2009, 9:05 am

    I hated HS as well… College was definitely the time of my life!!

  • Julie October 15, 2009, 9:06 am

    I liked both high school and college, in their own ways – college probably edging out high school a bit (no parents plus alcohol..hehe).

    also, I see that cathedral at least once a day as I drive through Oakland all the time – it never gets old πŸ™‚

  • Stacey October 15, 2009, 9:06 am

    πŸ™‚ I hated high school..but more importantly, I hate that I cared what everyone thought of me in high school! Today, I could give a rat’s patootie what those people think of me haha πŸ™‚ I like college more than high school, definitely! And I honestly think these years are the best yet, and I love the fact that my guy and I can go through college together…and live together too! Great post!! Hope your day is productive πŸ™‚

  • Kailey (SnackFace) October 15, 2009, 9:10 am

    Baby puppy pic!! So cute!

    I loved/love high school and college, but college more so.It’s my senior year now, and this happened in HS too, but I’m at that point where I’m really over studying and reading assignments. However, I know I’ll miss this night life and freedom after college! I’ll be living it up till June 2010!

  • Nicole October 15, 2009, 9:10 am

    Ahh, college…I have an interesting college story…let’s just say I went to four colleges before I graduated with my bachelor’s degree. (Can you say ADD?) However, I made great friends at each school that I still keep in touch with today. I played soccer and partied my face off. My most prominent memories though come from my 2 years at Marywood University in Scranton PA (2001-2003) I hated the school but the friends I made there…they can never be replaced. I ended up graduating from University of Massachusetts after leaving Marywood but I still love and miss my friends from there dearly.

    PS I’ve been meaning to ask you this for a while now–why cheer for Miami and not Pitt?? I know you grew up in Miami, but I was just wondering…lol

    • caitlin October 15, 2009, 9:11 am

      well, pitt’s football team kind of blows. πŸ™‚ lol but i do cheer for them for basketball.

  • Lee October 15, 2009, 9:14 am

    I had the tapestry thing going on for a while too! I liked college, but oddly enough, I loved high school. I don’t know why. I’ve kept in much better contact with my high school friends than with my college friends. That said, I miss college more, if that makes any sense.

  • brandi October 15, 2009, 9:24 am

    I do miss high school and college. Just the carefree feeling of those days, you know? You’re not a grown up yet, no real jobs or responsibilities. Just a lot of fun with your friends.

    Great breakfast! I was thinking of making that breakfast, but I went with an egg sandwich instead πŸ˜‰

  • Madeline @ GreensAndJeans October 15, 2009, 9:24 am

    I LOVED college! I miss New England falls, my friends, and even going to class… sometimes.

  • Susan October 15, 2009, 9:26 am

    Honestly, I didn’t care for either high school or university! I do miss my classes though…

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) October 15, 2009, 9:28 am

    I loved college (University in Canada) … but I never stayed on campus … I lived at home. That kinda of lessened the experience I think. And I never skipped class, or partied all night before class. I know, I know – lame!

  • Mellissa October 15, 2009, 9:29 am

    College was so much fun! I wish I could go back and not have to work during so I could have even more fun.

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) October 15, 2009, 9:41 am

    Meh, I didn’t mind high school- had a lot of fun and my best friend there during the last couple of years, but college definitely takes the cake. I absolutely adored undergrad for all that it taught me about myself, about relationships with others, and academically. I love the independence that it gave me, and I met a couple of my best friends there as well. Grad school is not bad, but a whole lot more focused haha.

  • Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance October 15, 2009, 9:46 am

    I went to Community College so I did not have the same sort of experiences as you, though I wish I had, but my parents had “3” kids to put through college so it is what it is. Highschool had its good and bad times of course, I made my best friend Amy there and we are still friends today, 15 years later, so that was a great benefit!

    Love the Egg In A Hole, I lived in England for several years in my pre-teen/teen years and never saw that, hmmm, but I can see how it is from there. I will make it soon.

    =) Laura @ Finding A Healthy Balance…..after a 100+ POUND weight loss!

  • Lisa October 15, 2009, 9:47 am

    That breakfast looks tasty and interesting! Ive never seen that. And about college–I miss it so much! I graduated from the University of Oklahoma and go back often for Football games and I wish I could transfer myself back to my college days. Great times!

  • Tay October 15, 2009, 9:47 am

    I’m still in college (last year – 5th year anyone? haha). And my roommate and I are trying to live up this last year!! As much as everyone wants to graduate, we know it won’t be this fun again (okay, that’s a lie). But it will be different. I didn’t mind high school, although it was different. More fun in different ways.

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) October 15, 2009, 9:48 am

    Sounds like you had a wonderful college experience! University of Pittsburgh seems amazing. What made you want to up and go to Pittsburgh for college?

    I went to Illinois State, and had a great time there:D

  • Evan Thomas October 15, 2009, 9:54 am

    Aww, hearing you reminisce gives me such hope for fun for the next 4 years

  • Emily (Emily Eats and Exercises) October 15, 2009, 9:57 am

    I have the best group of friends from high school. Even though I graduated 13 years ago (yikes) my friends and I gather over Thanksgiving and also for weddings. We all rent a house or two together and have the best weekends. It’s like mini spring breaks for adults!
    I liked college okay (I had to transfer half way through) but I LOVED grad school. That’s where I met my boyfriend!

  • Stephanie October 15, 2009, 9:57 am

    College years were amazing and I met by best girlfriends ever there!! My mom always told me (while I was in high school hating it and dating an older guy who had graduated haha) that the girls I meet in college will be my best friends for life… and she was on the spot with that (mom’s always know the answer, even if its in the future?!). Sighhhhh

  • Andrea October 15, 2009, 10:03 am

    I hated high school! College was by far one of the best experiences of my life. I met some great friends who I am still very close with today, I would love to relive college!

  • Maura October 15, 2009, 10:05 am

    I graduated college in May so I’m a tad nostalgic for that part of my life at the moment. Homecoming was last weekend so that didn’t help, haha. But I did love high school too. It was trying at times (you try going to an all-girls catholic high school, ahhh!) but I made some of my best girl friends there. Now if only I could wear a uniform to work, it would save soooo much time in the morning :P.

  • Anne October 15, 2009, 10:07 am

    I went to Pitt, as well! I lived on the 15th floor of Tower A and then in an apartment on Meyran later (but a bit before your time, I think). I had such a love/hate relationship with Oakland, but my memories are all fond in retrospect.

    I imagine you enjoy the Florida winters in comparison to some of Pittsburgh’s gloomy days!

  • Lindsay October 15, 2009, 10:08 am

    I hated high school. I had some good friends but other than that didn’t really enjoy that time. I LOVED college! I made so many really good friends, had a ton of fun and decided on a career!

  • Lu October 15, 2009, 10:11 am

    I would go back to college. High school was ok, but it wasn’t as much fun as college. I’d really like to hear more about Fat Talk Free Week. What is it all about? I got so mad when I saw that ad. How ridiculous does this body image thing have to get?

  • Felicia October 15, 2009, 10:13 am

    I graduated from college two years ago and miss it so much!! Luckily, my school is really crazy and we have reunions every year, which is amazing. They last for four days and it’s one giant party. LOVE it! πŸ™‚

    I also did enjoy high school but wouldn’t want to do it over again – there always seemed to be some drama within my group of girlfriends, usually involving some guy.

  • Caitlin@TheTwentyFifthYear October 15, 2009, 10:20 am

    I can honestly say I am pretty lucky to have made wonderful friends in high school and college, but I LOVED college! I went to Point Park University in Pittsburgh and spent MANY nights in Oakland! I moved to Philly after graduation and came back to Pittsburgh a year ago – I see the Cathedral of Learning every day. I know you have quite a following here so we’d all love a Pittsburgh meet up – just sayin’ πŸ™‚

  • Kelly October 15, 2009, 10:24 am

    First off — LOL at egg-in-a-hole. My hubby had never had it, and I made it one Saturday WEEKS ago. He’s in love. Every single weekend he asks for it now!
    Second, college — I definitely miss it! I’m from Butler (north of Pittsburgh) and I went to a PA state school in mid-state (Lock Haven) but moreso than the area, I miss the freedom. I’m definitely a “structured schedule” type person, but I prefer to be the one in control of the structure and schedule. I miss being able to complete all my required tasks for school and still have free time. I’ve been out of school for almost 5 years, and I still think it’s crap that jobs require you to be at your job for an HOURLY AMOUNT, rather than the amount of time it actually takes you to complete your tasks. *sigh* So much time wasted here at work!!

  • Abby (Abby's Vegan Eats) October 15, 2009, 10:25 am

    So i was totally shocked to see the TOWERS on your blog this morn.. I also went to PITT!! Ya Panthers.. I lived in tower A! When did you graduate?? I am a 2005 alum. How cool πŸ˜‰

    Have a super day!

  • Amber from GIrl with the Red Hair October 15, 2009, 10:25 am

    I’m in my last year of college right now and I’m SO SAD about it. I am NOT ready to grow up and enter the workforce next year, not at all!

  • Tina October 15, 2009, 10:27 am

    I used to make that kind of breakfast when I was younger! I kind of miss it.
    I love hearing about how much fun you had in college. I’m in my freshman year so it makes me sooo excited for everything that lies ahead in the next 4 years.

  • Michele October 15, 2009, 10:31 am

    I went to Pitt too!! But not for undergrad. I got my M.L.I.S. there and TOTALLY miss Frick Park. Best trails in western PA!

  • jen trinque October 15, 2009, 10:43 am

    College was only okay for me. I spent my first three semesters at a college about four hours from home and my high school boyfriend and I broke up during that time, which was really hard. I started dating another guy and we had a bad breakup during my college years as well. I transferred schools and was closer to home but lived in an apartment sitch I wasn’t crazy about with five other girls (sharing one bathroom!) then finally moved to my own place. I think I liked high school much better, actually! I graduated from college 8 and a half years ago, and I’m thrilled to be an adult πŸ™‚

  • Ellen October 15, 2009, 10:48 am

    I’m one of those losers that LOVED high school, and on occasion I still wish I could transport myself back to that time πŸ™‚ College was great too…I partied a lot, made great friends, had some not-so-great boyfriends, you know…normal stuff. But, I never felt like I totally fit in. I went to school in South Carolina, and even though I’m from Kentucky, I just couldn’t totally relate to the Southern belles that wore pearls around their necks and ribbons in their hair. They didn’t really mingle much outside of their cliques, but it didn’t bother me too much…I finally found my way.

  • Jessica October 15, 2009, 10:49 am

    Sounds like you had a great college experience. Mine was alright–I went to school in my hometown and stayed with my (now) ex-boyfriend for all four years of college. He went to school about a half hour away, so every weekend I was traveling to see him or he was traveling to see me. That situation really kept me from making friends. I kinda regret it, especially because the relationship was destined to fail from the beginning. That relationship ended my senior year, and unfortunately, I can’t say that I have any good friends from college. sigh.

    My five year college reunion is in June of 2010 and I’ve signed up to be on the host committee in hopes that I can reconnect with some acquaintances and meet “new” people.

  • Nicole October 15, 2009, 10:55 am

    I’m still in college but I like it so much more than highschool! I’ve had my share of living in party houses which was fun while it lasted. I’m moving to a new place soon and I can’t wait! I’m in my senior year, but it looks like I’m going to have to stretch it out a bit further πŸ˜‰

    I just went to Pittsburgh about a month ago and I was at Pitt for a while, however, it was such a crazy time that I went (during the G-20) so I don’t think Pittsburgh is normally like that.

    Pittsburgh didn’t leave a good impression on me! But that was probably due to the increased security and G-20, haha. I had to take the bus to get anywhere and I got so confused and lost!

  • Nicci@NiftyEats October 15, 2009, 11:02 am

    I do miss some of highschool but I really miss freshmen year of college. The best year of college before studies got intense. lol

  • Leah @ L4L October 15, 2009, 11:06 am

    High School was whatever. Senior year was a blast. College was fun the first year or two. Then not so much. Classes got harder. I didn’t party so much. I worked more. *sigh*

  • Reenie October 15, 2009, 11:19 am

    Oh, I love egg-in-the-hole. I also put syrup on mine ~ so it’s like french toast…..with eggs=)

    What do you do with the cut-out bread?

  • Kelly October 15, 2009, 11:38 am

    I loved college but I was ready to be done with the crazyness by the end. I’m so much healthier and less tired now because I actually get sleep every night!

  • angieinatlanta October 15, 2009, 11:48 am

    I actually loved high school. I had a great experience and I think that’s why I became a high school teacher!

    College was fun as well but I have to admit that I like my “adult” life more. I feel comfortable and content now in a way I never did before.

  • Abby October 15, 2009, 11:48 am

    I WENT TO PITT TOO! I had no idea! I LOVED IT! I graduated in 2007. I am hoping to go back for my master’s there too (I was just there on Friday taking my GRE)! I lived in Tower A, then Forbes, then I moved off campus onto Bates Street–right by the Mad Mex which was perfect for the nights that had 1/2 priced Margaritas! I love your blog! I’m so excited that we have the same Alma Mater! HAIL TO PITT!

    We must have been on the same wavelength this morning. I tried to make toad-in-a-hole too, except the egg leaked everywhere. Effectively, there was a toad in and outside of the hole. Oh well.

  • Kristina October 15, 2009, 12:20 pm

    I had a blast at college!! Graduated from Bowling Green State University in Ohio back in 2003. Just received my Masters from Pitt. I’m sure that you and the husband are familiar with Piper’s Pub, right?? Yummy, yummy food, and fantastic beer (and my favorite STRONGBOW!!) on tap. Love that place!

  • Laura W October 15, 2009, 12:23 pm

    I love your ode to PITT! I lived in Tower B- 3rd floor, then the Tri-Delt suite for 2 years, and finally, Bates Hill Apartments! I miss college so much (STILL) and am so excited go up next week… this time of year always makes me think of all things Pittsburgh and I really miss it!

  • Ali @ Food, Fitness, Fashion October 15, 2009, 1:01 pm

    I loved both!!! But college was better! I would go back in an instant! Even though I love my life right now!

  • Amanda (modernation) October 15, 2009, 1:10 pm

    I loved high school and college. In High School I was focused on sports and my core group of friends were teammates. In college I was focused on having fun and also lived in the dorms with the 3 girls who would become my best friends. I think college is where you make really solid life long friends – more than HS.

  • Jenna October 15, 2009, 1:17 pm

  • Nicole (dishin') October 15, 2009, 1:22 pm

    Yum. Egg in a hole!

    I liked both high school and college but they were totally different experiences. Freshman year of college wasn’t great for me but once I found my place I was happy! I also did the long distance relationship thing during college which, looking back, I wish I didn’t too. Oh well. Love and learn. I met my best friends at college so that’s what counts!

  • Amanda @ Cakes and Ale October 15, 2009, 1:53 pm

    I hated high school! I thought I liked it at the time, but looking back, I’m just kind of disgusted with myself and other people.

    On the other hand, I LOVED college. I met my husband there, and we both say all the time how we just want to go back to undergrad!

  • Tracy October 15, 2009, 2:11 pm

    I do not miss college or high school. I love life in my 30s πŸ™‚ I live in The ‘Burgh and work in Oakland, and I am a runner (though currently injured) – which is how I found your blog. You are an inspiration – keep up the great work!

  • Jenny Eastwood@ JennyLikesToRun, Healthy living blog :) October 15, 2009, 2:48 pm

    I cannot wait for university. Honestly, I’m so so excited about it!!! Unfortunately, after this year I’ll still have another two years πŸ™
    I HATE High School. It has been nothing but a torturous, lonely hell for me. I really really hate it and find it extremely difficult to continue going and make an effort. The only thing keeping me going, is the knowledge that if I don’t do well, I can’t go to Uni, and uni is my dream πŸ™‚ Sounds like you had a brilliant time at College πŸ™‚ That makes me even more excited to get my booty off to Massey! (The NZ University of my choice).

    God, and until then, I’ll be forced to tough it out at ratchet high school…. :'(

  • Rose October 15, 2009, 3:40 pm

    I feel like Pennsylvania and porch sitting are synonymous. My college experience was rad. I miss it every day. I’m happy to be a grown-up, have money, all that jazz. But I miss my friends a lot.

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) October 15, 2009, 6:52 pm

    I loved college. Had some of the best times and worst times of my life there. But I met my best friends and found my true calling to ministry. I wouldn’t trade it for the world πŸ™‚

  • Shannon October 15, 2009, 6:53 pm

    I love egg-in-a-hole! But I call it a bullseye πŸ™‚

    Is that second porch picture taken somewhere in Shadyside? Maybe off Ellsworth/Beeler? I heart Pittsburgh–we lived there for a year when my husband had a visiting post at CMU. I especially miss the little cafe in Schenley Park…

    I’m in college now, so I look back on high school the way you look back on college. Can’t wait until I’m the one looking back on these years…I’m sure I’ll appreciate them more once they’re behind me πŸ˜‰

    I Loved college, i played volleyball in North Carolina and i miss the girls and the games of it SO MUCH! I have a totally random comment about your egg in a hole breakfast… My whole life my mother called them “Donald Duck Eggs” it is what her father called them and i never knew they went by any other name until i moved out into the real world! The first time i called them that someone looked at me like i had nine heads!

    Yayyyyy Pitt!!! I lived in Towers too! And I would give just about anything for a good old porch party right now.

    Oooh you went to UPitt? I’m a student at a Pitt grad school, living in PA for the first time! Do you have favorite restaurants (ie. within a student’s budget) or places to go/see around here? I don’t have much time to go around and I don’t have a car, but if I do go out, I’d like to make the trip worth it! πŸ™‚

        Yeah, Spice Island Tea House is good! I went there once. Thanks, Caitlin, I’ll definitely have to go check out the Thai restaurant someday!

    I’m a senior at Pitt (although I’ve taken a semester off for ED recovery) and I love love love it there! I’m actually flying out this weekend. great local, ethnic restaurants and fun bars πŸ™‚

    I lived in tower A- room 1503, my freshman year! good–no, great times. πŸ™‚

    take care!

    I had no idea that you used to live in P-burgh! I lived there for the first 8 years of my life:)

    Loved reading this post! Isn’t the Burgh awesome? Wish you could run the marathon next year …
    i also went to Pitt (i’m a nurse now.) Glad you liked it so much up here (i suspect it was the great friends and NOT the weather. )

    That egg in a hole is delicious! Here’s a tip that sort of goes along with Operation Beautiful… try using a heart shaped cookie cutter! Make your breakfast full of love! (haha, cheesy.)
