Woooooaah, sorry  about the 2-week hiatus! Time has totally slipped away from me!

These past few weeks have been so crazy, hectic, and a little sad. A mix of  tests, projects, work, and family concerns have me slowly spinning in circles. But, I am slowly figuring it all out without getting too dizzy!

In my Foodology class, what my sister calls my homemaker class and to which I refer to it as my “Homemaker Wednesdays” , I’ve made asian stir-fry using Ramen noodles. To make it healthier, my partner and I added broccoli, carrots, baby corn, celery, and red and green bell pepper. Then, we added a whole bunch of Indian spices like cayan pepper. It had a nice yellow color and tasted very good, if I do say so myself!

This week, our professor made us two separate meat dishes, Chicken and Beef, in a slow-cooker! Since it required 10 hours+ of cook time our professor made it the night before for us to enjoy in class. Both meats had a maximum of two ingredients added to them. I’ve always been aware of how easy a slow-cooker meal was, but my mom has never made these dishes in a slow cooker before. I was impressed with how easy it was and how good it turned out!

Last week, I finished and turned in my Hoodie I made in my sewing class!! SOOO PROUD!! I added a half-zip, and a massive hood! It’s navy, with a silver zipper, and striped fabric on the wrists! Now, I have two blue sweatshirts, did not think the color through, obviously! (Through out its creation, I would sew a new piece then have a photoshoot, naturally! Well, each time I got a little more excited because it was almost done!! When I finally added the hood I couldn’t stop laughing because the hood covers half my face when on!! So my entire face was hidden and I erupted into uncontrollable fits of laughter!!) Two weekends ago, my family (all of whom are in the U.S. at the present time) came into town. It was nice to see them but a very sad occasion. And I’m still kind of recovering and wrapping my head around certain events, but I feel it will take some time to be able to understand. It was also a nice weekend, very sunny and breezy. I also needed a break from school, so it was nice to be around my family and constantly laughing and joking around to lighten the mood.

That should catch you up on what I’ve been doing recently! AND Griffin Girls has started, that means that Basketball season is soon to be upon us!! EEEEEPPS!! So many exciting things happening! We are currently working on the dance for Late Night which is November 2, 2012!!! All ya’ll should come out and see us perform– because we are all pretty awesome!!

Have a good  weekend!

This past week it was announced that the men’s basketball coach, Lee McKinney, is stepping down from his position. McKinney, who has become a fixture in the athletic program here at Fontbonne, has coached for the Griffins since 1988. The annual “Late Night with Lee McKinney” has been a great kickoff to the basketball season in my past three years here at Fontbonne. The court at Mabee Gymnasium is named for him as well.

McKinney has received a number of awards, wins, and honors since he’s been here as well. Unfortunately, he is battling cancer for the third time, but as the Fontbonne community knows, McKinney is a fighter. Best of luck to Coach McKinney in his retirement. He will forever be a part of our campus community.

This past week has been a whirlwind. Last Saturday was Dance Marathon! We raised $166,807.65 for the Children’s Miracle Network! It was an awesome experience and totally worth the weak knees after 12 hours of dancing. It was an extra treat for Fontbonne because we won the most spirited award for the whole event! I definitely had a good time and made a few friends in the process!

The week following had a lot of things going on too. The Pointersaurus contest (which is a giant pizza-eating contest for those of you who are unfamiliar with it) proved to be very interesting. Two members of the cross country team were in the lead for most of the contest, but I heard later that one of them almost vomited on the other! Yikes! The FAB board also gave away attendance prizes and every person at my table won something. One of my friends won a set of coasters, another won a Fall Dance ticket, and I won a cooler cup. My other won friend tickets to a Blues game!

Friday night was the kickoff of the basketball season here at Fontbonne with the annual Late Night with Lee McKinney Alumni vs. Student basketball game. It wasn’t only the kickoff of the of the men’s and women’s basketball seasons, but it was also the much anticipated debut of the Griffin Girls. Even though I wanted to go, I had something else going on. I can’t wait until the first basketball game of the season when I get to see the teams play and the dance team and cheerleading teams perform! There is so much to look forward to as the semester winds down!
