Thanksgiving Fun

Sunday, November 25, 2012

My Thanksgiving break was extremely relaxing, laid back, and most of all, really fun.  I got to sleep at home for a few nights, with my parents' house being about a 10 minute drive from my house on campus.  Break started a few days early with my birthday being the Thursday before break, and I had a great dinner at home with some of my extended family from Boulder and Denver, in addition to being with my roommates up on the Hill.  During break I was between both of my Boulder homes, sleeping with my parents all but two nights of break.

Thanksgiving Break

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Thanksgiving break is coming to a close, and as always, it flew by too fast! I was able to go to Winter Park to a friend's cabin for a night with a morning full of skiing. Even without the snow, WP has made fake snow and the mountain was actually pretty fun to ski! On the way home from Winter Park I always stop at a little treat shop called Lewis Sweet Shop in Empire, Colorado. They make the most amazing milkshakes! They have at least 20 flavors to choose from, and if you order yours thick it's like a blended soft served piled twice as high in the cup.

Home Again!

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Well, I'm back at home and it is awesome. I have to admit, it was a bit weird having the house to myself, since my brother didn't get home until Tuesday. But it was nice to just hang out with my parents and my puppy! We got to go to Newburyport, which is a town on the North Shore, and see some of the damage from Sandy. Because Newburyport is the place where the Merrimack river and the ocean meet, there are these stone jetties built to control the turbulance and the mixing of the ocean and river.

Not to worry, everybody...basketball season is underway, and the Buffs are off to a great start.  We are 3-0 and play Murray State, an Elite Eight team from last year, tomorrow night on ESPN in the championship of the Charleston Classic.

Quintessential

Thursday, November 15, 2012

 

It all started when *Ted moved out last summer. Ted was living with my guy friends, whose house we always, somehow, ended up hanging out at. When Ted initially moved in in May, he brought with him a nice microwave, a table, and a set of chairs. During the course of the year, those poor chairs and that pitiful table received all the abuses that accompany college living. Ted left after he graduated in May, assuring the guys that they could keep his table and chairs until he needed them again in October.

Piece, Love, and Chocolate

Thursday, November 15, 2012

On the Pearl Street Mall, there is a little store called Piece, Love, and Chocolate. This store sells all things chocolate, from chocolate truffles to chocolate pasta. For my birthday, my sister gave me a cooking class at this chocolate store because she knows how much I love chocolate. There were a few different classes to choose from but we decided to choose the molten chocolate lava cake and served with three different sauces. This class looked like so much fun from the website and I couldn't wait to go and learn how to make this amazing dessert.

Buffs Basketball

Buffs Basketball

Now I am a die hard Buff. Winning, losing, or otherwise I am at every game. However, it sure is nice when they are winning, and that is exactly what the men’s basketball team has been doing. Last year the won the Pac-12 tournament and reached the round of 32 in the NCAA tournament. The season tipped off last Friday, and the Buffs crushed Wofford.

The Final Countdown

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

I must admit that the end of the semester has completely snuck up on me. After break, we only have 3 WEEKS until final exams! Which is really, really scary. But, fortunately there are some awesome things coming up that make the gloominess that is finals week fun! Here's a quick list:

Safety First

Monday, November 12, 2012

 

So, you may have heard that Boulder is a sleepy little college town, when it comes to crime rates, and this is true. In fact, the biggest crime here is property theft. Can you guess what is stolen the most? Bikes. There are so many bikes in this city--- even more than cars…and I like to joke that some of these bikes cost even more than my car. So, Boulder is a quiet, safe college town.
