I’m a little slow moving this morning. But, I can assure you I had a great night.
Last night was the GSA (Graduate Student’s Association) Winter Wonderland Holiday party. It’s held at the main campus in Waterloo, but they extended their invitation to us.
I really, really wish I had snapped a picture, but they sent a LIMO to pick us up! One of those cool SUV limos. It’s about a 45-60 minute ride, so we definitely did made the trip in style. I brought a bottle of champagne on board, which made for a fun drive!
I headed over to Nicole’s house (my friend from the Chicago trip) to get ready with her and her friend Kaylee. Fun story: I got to Nicole’s with about 25 minutes to get ready and realized that I didn’t bring the right bra with me. So I turned around, ran home, grabbed it and ran back – it’s was probably about .75 miles each way? If you ever question why people stay in shape, here’s your answer: so you can run when the situation calls for it. Now, let’s just hope I was running hast enough that the people I ran past couldn’t tell I had a bra in my hand.
Upon arriving in Waterloo, I was hungry so I grabbed one of the little appetizers they were passing around. This one was some sort of sundried tomato filling with a little bit of chipotle mayo on top. It was good!
A whole grain bun with a schmear of butter (I don’t why I’m saying schmear, I would never use that term in real life), caesar salad, veggies, baked chicken, and mashed potatoes. While I wouldn’t say the food blew me out of the water, it was good enough!
Blurry chocolate mousse cake for dessert:
I though about going back for seconds….but seconds of dessert is a lot more my style.
Cheesecake with chocolate chips and caramel. Now, the sweet tooth was satisfied.
This is Derek. He makes the same facial expression in every picture.
The whole group!
And yes, I absolutely wore the exact same outfit I wore to this party. Why mess with a good thing?
The rest of the night involved a lot of shoe-less dancing before making our way back in the limo. It was a lovely party, thanks GSA!
I went back to Nicole’s, ate some ketchup chips (I forgot how amazing that flavour is), then went home and crawled into bed. A great night!
Jenny’s Christmas Challenge!
Christmas décor – I still need to get some more for outside, but I’m happy with what I got for inside the apartment now.
I’ve already posted this picture, but it’s my favourite so I’ll post it again:
Combining Christmas and cupcakes: two of my favourite things.
Have a great weekend!
<— When was the last time you were in a limo?
<— Do you re-wear party outfits? I’m cool with buying one outfit per season.
