vacation

I feel like I started my summer vacay early. (Well, not really, since I do still have to take finals this week). But, I just got back from a trip to Seattle, and it was amazing! Words cannot describe how much I needed this getaway. My fiancé, Johnny, and I went up there and stayed with my cousin and his wife. They live right in the heart of the city, so it was a great location for tourists like us. We were there for an entire week, so we were able to get a lot accomplished! I made a list of things to do, and crossed almost everything off. The things I crossed off were: Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Museum of Pop Culture, the gum wall (it’s literally an entire alley covered in gum), The Weeknd concert, Sounders soccer game, and visit the grave sights of Jimi Hendrix and Bruce Lee. On top of our list, we went to other museums, several new restaurants, and shopping destinations. My favorite evening was the one spent on the beach along the water of the Puget Sound. It was overlooking Mount Rainier during sunset, and was absolutely breathtaking. We built a bonfire and had campfire treats. Nothing beats it! We also managed to watch three Blues games at a local hockey bar. When you’re a St. Louis fan, the world stops when playoff hockey is on. Although it was wet, a bit chilly, and busy week, I had an amazing trip. Seattle is a beautiful city. My cousin that lives there wants to make this trip an annual tradition. So hopefully next year I’ll be describing another Seattle vacation. ‘Til next time!

Hey everyone!!

Welcome to the end of the year! Finals are less than a week away, and I can’t wait to not be a constant ball of stress that always has some form of homework due every single day. I won’t be finished with finals until next Thursday, so I’ve got a long week ahead of me 😅

But let’s fast forward real quick and talk about summer!!! I’m not sure if it will be a super exciting summer, but I am excited to go back home to be with my family and to also work at Baskin Robbins! I feel like that may be all that I talk about when I go home, but at least it will be the summer season and I hope to work more…

I’m also excited to go to the beach in July for my family vacation. We are going to DESTIN, FL!!! 🏖️ I get to meet up with part of my family that lives in Alabama, and I only get to see them twice a year and I can’t wait to see them because I feel like I never get to see them (hence the twice a year part)…

But that’s about all I know about my summer so far, but I’ll inform you all we get back to school in August!!

peace out and see you all soon,

Morgan

Wow! Time flies when you’re having fun. Quite a bit has happened since last semester. I traveled to California during the winter break to visit family and did a lot of site seeing and had a great time bonding with my sister, nieces, nephew and great nieces and nephews. I’ve made some new connections, joined a new group called Fontbonne Community Connections (FCC), an all women philanthropist group that assists students and staff at Fontbonne by donating money to selected projects that not only benefit Fontbonne, but the community at large. I’ve also planned a couple of trips out of the country this year where I will be doing mission work, and I’m elated about these opportunities as well.

There’s a lot in store this year & I’m super excited about all the things are to come.

I hope all of you thoroughly enjoyed your winter break and that this year has been a great so far!

Hello, Griffins, and welcome back!  My second semester at Fontbonne is now nearly one-fourth completed, which is pretty hard to believe that much time has flown by already.  Homework, tests, deadlines, and learning new things is in full swing. I’m taking 18 hours this semester, so my time is much more limited.  It’s amazing how last semester has been put into perspective, and what I thought was busy three months ago pales in comparison to busy now…hello, 1:30 a.m. bedtimes! Overall, though, I have settled in and am pretty happy with my classes.  It’s nice to be in some that directly pertain to my major (dietetics), too.

Here’s a quick recap of what I did in the past month: We celebrated Christmas, my favorite holiday, and immediately afterwards headed to Colorado for a family ski trip.  I’ve been a snow-lover and ski fanatic since the itty-bitty age of two, so you could say it’s inherent to my nature.  This time, we tried out a new place for the first two days, Telluride.  We also skied a day each at Snowmass and Sunlight Mountain.  Amazingly, we were blessed with glorious sunshine and comfortable temperatures for all four days!  That’s a record for us.  It’s always amazing to be in God’s beautiful creation with my loved ones, and I’m so grateful we were able to find the time to get away for a bit before the craziness started.

After we got back, I did some unpacking and catching up on various tasks, and it wasn’t long before the spring 2017 semester began!  That brings us to the present, as I’m juggling work (I operate a house/petsitting business), class, and homework…annndddd not much else right now.  I still have my two horses, Blondie and Pearl, although I haven’t gotten a chance to do anything with them (other than feed them twice a day) for awhile.  Somehow, though, at the end of the day, it all works out.  Assignments get completed on time, critters get fed and cleaned up after, and the next day is a new day…a fresh start, a new chance to learn, grow, and be more.  (that just came to me…thank you, Fontbonne motto!)

In the future…

I’m not sure it will happen this year, but I would like to go to Europe sometime. I have never been out of the country, the last time I was on an airplane was when I was 3. I would love to go to Italy, particularly Venice. It has water around the entire city and […]

Holiday World

Last week I went to Holiday world in Santa Clause, Indiana. It is a theme park that incorporates Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and July 4th. It also has a huge water park; I went there first. Unfortunately it rained and we had to eat standing under an eating area. After it cleared, we went on the […]

4th of July

by Patricia July 15, 2016

This 4th of July was lots of fun! On Friday we visited our cousin in Wisconsin. We went to her house and had a BBQ. She has a 2-year-old son that was very outgoing. The hotel was nice too. It had a big pool and French toast and cinnamon rolls for breakfast. The next day […]

Summer Get-A-Ways

by DeMarcus July 5, 2016

While we haven’t quite reached the summer solstice just yet, some friends from Room 316 and I have started to plan for next summer. We were watching “Gossip Girl” season 2 when Blair was returning back home to the Hamptons with her new boyfriend, while Chuck Bass was waiting for her with a bouquet of […]

Florida (continued)

by Patricia June 22, 2016

Besides rescuing my dog, Champ, I did plenty of other things in Florida. I bought a blow up whale, named Malibu. I rode it on the waves on the beach. It was fun because there had recently been a storm and the waves were intense! I felt like someone was knocking me into the sand and […]

Florida

by Patricia June 14, 2016

This week, my family went to Florida in St. George Island! This year, we brought my dog, Champ. A few days ago, he jumped off the dock and into the ocean! He usually hates water, but he thought that a log was prey and couldn’t resist! Once he jumped off, he swam toward the log […]
