I LOVE MY COLLEGE!!!!!!!!!!!!! We went to a Davidson event tonight for alumni who have made contributions. I have to say, our contribution was S.M.A.L.L., but the event tonight definitely inspired me to donate more. I had the most wonderful college experience and would give anything to share the opportunity with others. The husband and I just celebrated the 7 year anniversary of our meeting at Freshman Orientation this past Saturday <3
Before the event, I had hot tea, Kashi H2H (dry), some kashis, and a spoonful of PB when I got home from classes.
The Davidson event was held at the Charlotte City Club, which is in the top of one of the city’s skyrises –
Panthers Stadium in the distance!
The husband got a fabulous beer and I had a few sips to start the night off –
But I decided on a glass of white wine. I know red makes me more hungover, and I thought I’d drink beer way too fast to enjoy it.
Plus two appetizers that came by. A fabulous tuna on a chip and something goat cheese –
I then had the honor of taking my photo with Davidson’s President Ross! A little blurry, but still a nice photo
Knowing I have an early morning, my goal was one drink for the evening. With a glass of wine plus probably 1/3 a beer, I was probably good to go by now. But being in the college mode, I had a second chardonnay!
Then we dug into the “heavy hors d’oeuvres.” My opinion: they could have been a lot heavier!
Veggies, which were good, hummus, pitas, a toast piece, olive tapenade –
Plate #2 (more of the same)
Plus more beer sips and a “taste” of the red wine –
And another taste!! BAD ME! (But cute wedding ring hub!)
Here he is with his frat brother Dave, who should be exploring the blog for the first time tonight
All the Davidson umbrellas. The lightrail right was bad. Very soggy and my feet were cold and wet.
The husband put dinner in perspective perfectly:
“I got enough calories but I am not satisfied AT. ALL. And I don’t even know what to eat to satisfy me. I almost want like an apple or somethin’ ”
I agree. I’m not hungry but my mouth wants to eat!!!
Before all the exciting wine, I was planning to workout first thing tomorrow. I have A TON to do for classes, including a huge exam that counts for 20% of my grade on Thursday on prerequisite courses. Plus lots to do for Micro lab tomorrow night. I think I’ll rearrange my schedule as follows –
