How has your weekend been?
And who’s excited that it is finally spring time?! I know this girl is. Spring has been celebrated in my life with pastel blue and yellow toe nails and Reese’s eggs. I swear candy tastes better when it’s in a Spring themed wrapper. And Spring Oreos? Oh baby. They are clearly the best.
How good would a Spring Oreo Milkshake be?
Good gracious I’m getting off track. Let’s start with Saturday morning.
It didn’t look very springy when I woke up. Nope.
I was supposed to run 5 miles to finish off the Ironman triathlon challenge, but the weather made me want to stay inside with my hot tea and eat a package of Spring Oreos. So I decided to leave it up to the weather to decide if I went on my run or not later. I ate a little oatmeal and worked on homework until it was time for a lunch date with my “little” Annie.
Sorority Lingo 101: Little (Annie): Noun; member of a fraternity or sorority who has a “Big” (me!) that looks after, mentors and shares chocolate with the little.
One of the best parts about having a little? They are freshmen. And freshmen sometimes swipe you into the Food Zoo. Oh, how I love the college cafeteria 🙂 My favorite meal is a veggie sandwich with humus, sunflower seeds, cucumbers, spinach and beets. YUM!
After lunch and a few more hours of homework, the sun was shining bright and the snow had melted! This is spring in MT y’all. I had a very happy 5 mile run and finished the Ironman a day early.
Maybe next time I’ll do it in one day!
Hahahahaha oh that is a grand joke.
After catching up with my mom and a warm shower, I made myself dinner; a Greek quesadilla with greens and Tzatziki sauce.
My quesadilla had humus, feta, mozzarella, tomatoes, red pepper and olives in it. Isn’t that a nice change from the usual Mexican quesadilla?! The Tzatziki was super easy; just chopped cucumber, lemon juice, garlic, plain Greek yogurt and hot sauce 🙂
I watched The Office while I ate and couldn’t help but giggle a little…

Oh Michael 🙂 Next on my agenda was Forrester’s Ball 2013.
Forrester’s Ball is a 96 year old tradition at my college where there is free chilli, a live band, lot’s of wood chips and swing dancing!
Basically here’s what went down:
~a red plaid shirt and borrowed red cowboy boots
~bonding with my little, my big, and other good friends before the ball
~getting married at the Saint Grizzly Chapel and stretching out the cheap, tin ring to fit my 24 hour husbands finger
~sliding down a HUGE, greased slide at tops speeds and running into a pile of wood chips
~swing dancing until my feet were sore 🙂
~coming home and chatting with my girlfriends in the kitchen
~laughing soo hard after watching Shelbi drop her bowl of shepherds pie and spill it all over the chair like a champ 😉
~sleeping like a rock and NOT setting an alarm!
~waking up for warm green tea and Ashtanga yoga by a sunny window to start the day
I had so much fun at this lumber jack bash! While college in general and Forrester’s Ball is well known for being a huge drinking event, I have had a blast for the past two years 100% sober 😀 You don’t have to schwasted to have a swingin’ good time in my opinion!
Hope everyone has an awesome Sunday!
