Spring Break

Hi, everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing, enjoyable spring break…and that it gave you the necessary breather to finish the rest of this semester strongly!  Let me know in the comments what you did — whether it was a laid-back week at home or exciting vacation to some far-off location!

For me, spring break started with coming home to find my mom sick with the flu, which was really unfortunate.  On the bright side, since I was on spring break, it meant she could rest (and she needed to!), and I could take care of the cooking/cleaning up for my dad and me.  I did enjoy making a few new recipes that he apparently really loved…like an avocado-tomato-goat cheese sandwich on cheddar-garlic bread from Great Harvest Bread Company, a healthier version of an Alfredo-turkey pizza, and cinnamon/oatmeal/whole wheat/flax seed bread.

I also did some horsesitting for one of my clients early on during break, which I always enjoy.  This client has a Miniature horse (and a Quarter horse), and he’s one of the most adorable little guys you’ll ever meet.  He has one blue eye and one brown eye, loads of fluffy hair that falls in his eyes, and gorgeous pinto coloring (light brown/tan and white).  I love everything about him…well, I pretty much love every horse I meet, but that particularly goes for Minis.  They’re just so lovable and cute!

Most of the rest of my break was spent on homework, as I wrote in my previous post.  On the bright side, I worked extremely hard to get myself caught up or even ahead in reading, projects, papers, and more, so I was quite productive.  I’m not necessarily saying it will lighten up my still-crazy schedule, but it will definitely help…especially in the last few weeks of the semester, when a ton of stuff is due!  I also got a chance to get some nice runs (on trails and roads) and mountain bike rides in, and the weather was gorgeous for it.

Finally, by this past weekend, I felt comfortable enough to sneak away with my mom to enjoy lunch at St. Louis Bread Company and see Beauty and the Beast.  I’ve seen the play twice before, at a local high school and the Fox Theater, and I’ve definitely fallen in love with the music.  My favorite songs are probably Beauty and the BeastBe Our Guest, and If I Can’t Love Her (which was the only thing I didn’t like about the movie…it didn’t have that song!).  I thought the film was excellently done on many accounts — acting, dancing, special effects, orchestrations and singing — and I’d highly recommend you go see it.  In fact, I liked it so much I went to see it a second time just two days later with my friend.  And just for kicks, I did read the children’s storybook to my mom after the film…proof that you never really get rid of your childhood. 🙂

Blessings,

~Anna

Hello everyone,

Let me tell you about all of the wonderful things I have done over my spring break.  I have had the chance to spend a lot of quality time with my parents and even some quality time with my boyfriend. Over the weekend I had the chance to practice golf with my dad at Sunset Country Club where my family is members and I even had a personal best score on Sunday.  It was great to be with my family at the course on Sunday and be able to prove to myself that I can play well in the cool weather.  Then, that evening my family went to the Des Peres movie theater to see the much anticipated Beauty and the Beast movie and it was such a breath taking movie.  My family had another movie night on Monday as we watched the other amazing Disney film that was recently in theaters which was Moana.  I just love that movie because it has so many life lessons about pursuing your dreams and doing everything possible to make them happen.

Then, on Tuesday I had the chance to go out to lunch with my parents and my grandma at Billy G’s in Kirkwood and I savored an amazing meal.  After that we walked next door to my favorite bakery, Great Harvest, in which I purchased two of my favorite treats there. Later on in the evening I went to mass at the Catholic Student Center on Washington Universities campus and following the mass I delighted in some soup for dinner in the church basement.  Then, I drove to my boyfriends house to bake some oatmeal bars and hangout with him.

A couple days later my boyfriend and I had tickets to the St. Louis Blues game down at Scottrade center.  But before the game started we enjoyed dinner together at Syberg’s downtown next to the Drury in Hotel and when we were finished we walked over to the arena. We arrived early enough to watch the Blues players warm up and it was very fun because I took many pictures and was able to see them all close up.  Once the game started there was a lot of excitement in the stadium as the fans cheered on the men in blue  each time they attempted a shot on goal.  It was definitely a thrilling game to watch once the Blues had their first goal on the scoreboard towards the end of the first period.  From there the Blues continued to dominate as they scored three more goals before the end of regulation that night.

The next day I woke up early and went to my practicum site early to work on one of my class projects and help the main cook prepare lunch.  That day we were preparing rigatoni pasta bake and manicotti along with some Caesar salad and cheese bread.  I followed the cook along all morning to see where I could help out and I ended up playing a big part in that days meal.  I assisted with making the pans of manicotti which had red sauce and some white Alfredo sauce inside of it.  Then I helped remake the rigatoni noodles into something even better than what it was before as we added some more pasta sauce to it, tomato juice, and some Parmesan cheese.  Another thing I worked on was adding cheese, butter, and parsley to the garlic bread and then baking it in the oven.  The lunch that day ended up being quite delicious and all of the sisters and guests seemed to really enjoy everything on the buffet line.

Later that same day, I took a drive to Moberly Missouri to visit a good friend of mine, Scott, who moved there in the fall because of a job.  It is about two and a half hours away from St. Louis and so it is not a very difficult drive depending on the weather.  I arrived in the late evening and shortly after, we drove to dinner, which was an authentic Mexican restaurant in the east side of town.  Then, the rest of the night we watched sports and when the sun rose again we watched more sports which included the World Golf Championships Dell Match Play and the St. Louis Cardinals spring training game.  Later in the morning on Saturday we went out to brunch at a local diner in the central part of town called the Brick and then Scott showed me around his workplace which was right next door.  The next thing we did was drive to the only park in town called Rothwell park in which there was a hiking trail for us to walk around.  Then, before you know it, it was time for me to take my journey back to St. Louis for the evening and the drive seemed longer than it should have been because of the pouring rain.

Thanks for reading about my great adventures on spring break 2017.  Remember, adventure is out there, so go experience the world.

Spring Break!!!

Spring Break

Hollywood has told way to many of us that spring break requires a beautiful beach, huge group of friends, and too many nights that end in: “what happened?”. The reality is that most spring breaks do not happen like that, and that is OKAY! My spring break consisted of me and my best friend traveling up to her lake house for three days, we sunbathed on the dock, we took the paddle boat out, we read and read some more, and we cooked some delicious meals. Let me tell you, this break was by far one of my favorites, it was beyond relaxing and really rejuvenated my spirits to come back to school. Instead of our nights ending with “what happened”, the conversation continued on with: “remember when?”. My heart was so full and I am horse from all the laughter. Do not play the comparison game when it comes to your spring break, but embrace where you are right now and love the people you are with! My spring break probably sounds super boring to some, but I do not care because I had such a wonderful time. Do not let others define what happiness should look like, enjoy your break the way you want to!

Finally! Spring Break! Is it just me or was Spring Break very much needed? It feels like Winter Break was forever ago, but that is not the point of this post. What am I going to be doing? Well, I will be decompressing for a day and then it’s time to get to work. I will be working on and improving my projects that I am currently working on. I have some new ideas currently cooking and I am in the process of drawing out blueprints, prototypes, etc. For what exactly? I am not going to disclose that information. Who knows, you may see & use it in the future! Time will tell. Until next time guys, stay classy!

Are you as excited as I am about spring break?  Honestly for me, this semester has been quite stressful and really busy.  I’ve not been able to spend time doing anything other than work, class, homework, or (a little bit) of sleep, and quite frankly, that’s not good for my physical, mental, emotional, or […]
