Spring in Boulder

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

The past few days have been crazy!! Today, Tuesday March 6, the temperature reached around 70 degrees. Having been in some very cold months recently, it may as well have been 90. Everyone was out on whatever field they could find, you would have been hard pressed to look at any patch of grass and not see a football or frisbee flying through the air or people laying in the sun studying or chatting. I was even wearing a tank top today and got a sun burn!

Weekend with the Best Friends

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

This past weekend, my friend T.J. came to visit my friend Jacquie and me. When your friends come to visit it is a little different than when your parents come to visit because you have to spend your own money. Luckily, showing off Boulder on a budget isn't very hard. We started out the weekend breakfast to show off our amazing dining hall, the C4C. This dining hall has amazing breakfast food including omlettes and breakfast burritos. Whenever a friend comes to visit, I like to show off our dining hall and make them jealous of the food that we get to eat everyday.

Oh, the Places You'll Go

Friday, March 2, 2012

Did your parents ever sit down with a Dr. Suess book with you before bed time, watching you stumble over the letters as you phonetically sounded out the words "lorax" and "bamboozle?" Perhaps you can fondly remember your favorite story, or your first grade teacher bringing in real  green eggs and ham. Dr. Suess touched millions of children's lives, and today, on his 108th birthday, I thought it only fitting to bring a little Suess to CU.

Manos Alegres!

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

This past Friday I was lucky enough to go to a concert for free, which, for a lover of music like I am, is always a treat. However, it was not your normal type of concert. My host mom, Rosa, has been studying Spanish Sign Language for the past two months, and this concert, Manos Alegres (Happy Hands) was kind of like their final exam. I know what you're thinking...a concert in sign language? At first I didn't get it either, but once it started, it was really cool!

My Snaps Make Even Ramen Look Good

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

I spend the majority of my little spare cash on my experiences. And that includes food. I attended a student leadership honor dinner, a conference in Oklahoma and had some time to make home cooking. So, my food potography album has new additions.

Here we go:

Breakfast(s): Home-made egg and butter sandwiches. With red and green grapes.

When Parents Come to Town

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Last week, my parents came to visit my sister and me here in Boulder. My parents are actually in Boulder a lot because this is where they met, so we have a few favorite places to eat and things to do for when they come to town. One of our favorite places to eat is a restaurant called Salt. This restaurant is located on the Pearl Street Mall and has amazing entrees. I always order some kind of fish because I don't eat that a whole lot in the dining halls, but everyone's favorite dish is the Tom's Tavern Burger. Another restaurant that we went to last week was called Oak.

Visit And Basketball

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

This past week was great because my dad came to visit!! My dad is one of my favorite people ever and it's always so much fun to have him here. We went out to a delicious dinner (at The Med on Pearl St.) and then I brought him to the CU-Boulder versus Stanford basketball game.

A Bum Knee

Friday, February 24, 2012

A few weekends ago, I went on a back country ski trip with my dad and my sister. On our hike out, my ski got trapped under a branch that had been hidden by fresh snow, causing me to awkwardly fall and sending my knee in, well, the wrong direction.

Time to get busy!

Studying in Alicante has been pretty interesting so far, but this week was by far the most challenging (school wise) yet!
