Sunday Funday

Sunday, October 14, 2012

 

Today was a day filled with Boulder and fall fun.

I started out the day by going to a pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect carving pumpkin. I found this great little patch no more than five miles from my apartment. There are so many little treasures like that in Boulder….and you don’t even have to travel very far.

This pumpkin patch had hay rides, a corn maze, kittens, goats, and a variety of pumpkins to choose from.

Ping Pong For Days

Sunday, October 14, 2012

I have always loved ping pong and have been a very competitive player for many years.  When I was a freshman in high school, my father and I rescued a beat-up table from a yard sale, stripped the warped wood off the frame, and built a new table from scratch.  That table saw hundreds of games and bore distinctive marks of character.

Midterm Season

Thursday, October 11, 2012

 

Ah yes, the part of the semester where everyone gets a good bit busier. Midterms. For some reason it seems that professors choose the same two weeks to for all of their exams and due dates. However, a lot more is made of midterms than there really is to complain about.

Philanthropy and Wedding Love!

Thursday, October 11, 2012

This past weekend was so much fun! Friday we had a night in and watched a ton of movies, including my all time favorite movie, The Town. Saturday was a study day, which was definitely needed, and then at night I ended up having to help my friend go grocery shopping. Definitely a few lessons learned there. For example, when a guy says that he only needs to buy gatorade and chicken, don't be surprised when they get distracted and end up coming out with $150 worth of groceries. I was surprised to say the least.

Race for the Cure

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

This past Sunday, I got the opportunity to attend the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. This race is a walk/run held in Denver to fundraise for breast cancer funds. There were thousands of people there and it was an awesome way to spend my Sunday. I attended Race for the Cure with my sorority. We met up in Denver bright and early and walked the 5K to support those who have survived and those who have passed from breast cancer. There were people everywhere and it was so great to see how many people support this cause.

Parent's Weekend

Friday, October 5, 2012

This past weekend was Parent's Weekend and I was lucky enough to have my parents fly out from California to visit me. There are many activities that CU Boulder puts on for parent's weekend that are a lot of fun. There are special tailgates and pre-football game fun to attend. My parents came in on Friday morning and I met them for dinner after my classes at Hapa sushi on the Pearl Street Mall. We then walked around Pearl Street Mall and looked into the shops. They just recently put in a new candy store on the Pearl Street Mall so we went in and looked for a good 30 minutes.
