School Night Celebration

in All Posts

Last night, we headed out to celebrate the completion of the book.  I felt very light!  It’s amazing how a big work project can weigh on you. 


I was pumped to celebrate with Nicole and Megan. Nicole doesn’t normally go out on school nights, and Megan lives in Baltimore, so it was very special indeed.


First, we stopped at Pita Pit for dinner.  I’ve only eaten at Pita Pit once before but man – it’s so good!


I got the falafel pita. 


Megan has been staying at my house for a few nights now – it’s fun!  I wish she would move into my guest room permanently.  She would be a good roomie.


Fun fact: Megan and I met over two years ago when we both lived in Orlando.  We both had blogs and, after communicating online a few times, decided to meet up ‘IRL’ (Internet slang for ‘in real life’).  And a beautiful friendship was born! 


We stayed out way too late for a school night and I drank one too many ginger ales and Captains (meaning – two… My head hurts! Can’t hang like I used to).  But it was fun and special and exactly what I wanted to do to mark the end of book numero tres.




Keepin’ it simple because we’re – of course – late.


Have a fabulous day!

    Yeaaaah girl, CONGRATS on finally being *completely* done (well, for the time being). That’s gotta be one of the best feeling in the whole world! I hope you celebrate all week (month?) long.

  • allison @ thesundayflog September 7, 2011, 9:09 am

    it’s so depressing when i think about how hard i used to go in college, compared to now. i was going out like 6 nights a week, suffering through a hangover, and doing it all again. now i have a beer or two MAYBE once a week and i swear to myself im never drinking again every.single.time. growing up i suppose! CONGRATS on being done 🙂

    • Faith @ For the Health of It September 7, 2011, 9:26 am

      Haha same here! I don’t party all that often but when I do it almost always gets me – where did our tolerance go?

      • Caitlin September 7, 2011, 3:01 pm

        Side effect of getting old and healthy 🙂

  • Aine @ Something to Chew Over September 7, 2011, 9:16 am

      Same question about the jeans! They are amazing!

        They are the Stella style from Express. I love them so much that I bought two pairs!

  • Alex @ Raw Recovery September 7, 2011, 11:57 am

    Congrats on finishing the book! Wow, what an accomplishment. There’s a restaurant called Garbanzo that I’m guessing is similar to this pita place, I don’t know a vegetarian who doesn’t like it. You should see if they have one in Charlotte!

  • Sophie @ threetimesf September 7, 2011, 12:00 pm

    Yay, it must feel so good to have finished the draft! Well done, I can’t wait to see it on the shelves!

    That Pita Pit looks so good! We used to go there in college at like 3am after the bars closed. Haha! Congrats on finishing your book! Can’t wait to read it. 🙂

  • Julie (A Case of the Runs) September 7, 2011, 12:12 pm

    Mmm, pita! I try not to go out on school nights, either. I have no idea how people used to party on Thursday nights when most had class on Friday.

  • Angela @ MyPinkyToes September 7, 2011, 12:20 pm

    Oh my goodness, congratulations for being done! I can’t wait for it to come out!

  • Shaya (Eye Girl Eats) September 7, 2011, 12:32 pm

    Woo!! so excited for you, can’t wait to see book #3 on the shelves!!

    Cute tie-dye top!

  • Amber K September 7, 2011, 12:58 pm

    Yay for being done! I definitely can’t “hang” like I used to. Getting much too old 😉

  • Katy September 7, 2011, 1:01 pm

  • Rosa - Fitness, Food, Fulfilled September 7, 2011, 2:08 pm

    Congratulations on finishing the book. Woohoo!

    Captain M and Diet Coke is my alltime favorite adult drink. Doesn’t getting older bite? I totally can’t party like I once did. Call me granny.

  • sarah@spinach and spice September 7, 2011, 2:10 pm

    Congrats! I’ve never been to the Pita Pit before, but I’m leaving for college in a week and there’s one right next to my dorm on campus! Hooray for good “fast food” 😀

  • Jolene ( September 7, 2011, 2:20 pm

    Congrats Caitlin!

    I LOVE that shirt you are wearing! Where did you get it?

    • Caitlin September 7, 2011, 3:03 pm

      Thanks! It’s from this small boutique in asheville!

    Congratulations, Caitlin, that’s absolutely amazing! 😀 You must be so thrilled and delighted, and what a wonderful way to celebrate with the girls!<3 Have a lovely day! Your breakfast looks delicious, as always…I love how you just dump the banana half on top of the toast, it must be so fun to eat! xyx

  • Mel September 7, 2011, 4:54 pm

    Congrats!!! And Pita Pit is like an institution at my college campus. There was one conveniently located near all the bars and house parties, and it closed at 3 a.m. Hence, drunken stops to Pita. I always felt like the people who worked there must have the most interesting stories!

  • Lesley September 7, 2011, 5:23 pm

    I really love your outfit again. Where did you get those earrings? Or are they another pair on loan? 🙂

    You must be so excited to be done! Congrats!

    • Caitlin September 7, 2011, 9:01 pm

      Hahah ACTUALLY I stole them from my mom. What can I say… I’m an earring stealer. 🙂

  • Shari September 7, 2011, 6:03 pm

    Don’t you love when you meet someone online and it turns into a lifelong friendship? There’s something so special about it, especially when you get to spend time together in person 🙂

    Congrats again on the book!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin September 7, 2011, 6:54 pm

    Sounds like such a fun night! And a well-deserved one too. 😀 It always feels so good to go out and celebrate after working so hard on a project.

  • Beth September 8, 2011, 1:25 pm

    Good choice, the falafel pita is my go-to meal from Pita Pit. LOVE IT! For a while I would eat it once a week for lunch 🙂
