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 –
