I've been extremely busy lately as the semester is ending.
Heres my update:
THANKSGIVINGS: I had few thanksgivings to attend.
The first one was a raw vegan thanksgiving in Chattanooga. It was hosted by my friend Jessica, and she prepared lots of crazy, yummy, gourmet raw food dishes. Normally I do not eat gourmet raw, but I definitely had to try this out: when is there ever a raw thanksgiving in Chattanooga!!?!!
this is me and Gretta, the 80/10/10ers, nibblin!
the gourmet raw food: marinated portabella steaks with gravy, "mashed potatoes" with gravy, and a delicious refreshing mango soup
this is the apple pie i made: dates&pecans for the crust, apples for the filling, with a orange-date syrup. Sprinkled with cinnamon and raisins
Next, I went to my family thanksgiving in Nashville, which is always outrageously fun. For this thanksgiving, I ate strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and bananas mixed with the jelly of 2 persimmons. It was delicious.
Finally, I ate with my boyfriend's family on real thanksgiving. I made an apple pie and cranberry sauce... it was enjoyed well. =)
Tim and I driving and dancing on our way back to Chattanooga:
and on another food note, ive been eating a TON of apples & dates. Specifically, ive been blending the dates with a tad bit of water to create a "caramel sauce" while dipping the apples in. ITS HEAVENLY.
SCHOOOOOL: so the semester is almost ended. I only have one more exam!!!! The stress if finally being lifted off and I am onto bigger and better things.... like ART! Oh, two big decisions to share:
1. I am going to study abroad in Thailand (hopefully next fall) !!!! I already started filling out the paperwork, and I have an appointment set up to meet with the international office at UTC.
2. As of yesterday, I changed my major to art. =)
Speaking of art, here is my most recent piece:
Triple Crown is coming up again... this weekend, actually! (The first triple crown comp of the series is where I shattered my heel... there are 3 comps in the series) Marcus has been coming down to train for it and he is getting STRONG!!!! (I'm rootin for ya man!) We had a slumber party in the dorm. =)
HEALING PROCESS: I get my cast off TOMORROW. I am BEYOND EXCITED..... You have no idea!
