Once upon a time, I lived in a freshman dorm at UGA. Called Boggs.
And it was one of the best experiences of my life. I mean, I’d never live there again (the shower heads came up to my shoulder and I don’t really like sliding off a bed every morning), but I made some AMAZING friends that year. Thank goodness for the Olympics, though, or I probably never would have met many of them. And Facebook. Facebook worked wonders that summer before Boggs.
Anyways, I was friendly with most everyone in the dorm, but I had a group of solid friends that I ate dinner with most nights of the week. Although I still get to dine with Shelley and Kayla every night, I (actually all three of us) missed our group dinners…so we decided to have a dinner party!
It was a blast! And everyone made delicious food! I made kale, except I made it WAY too early, so it turned pretty ugly by the time Chelsea, Kerry and Emma arrived. I was embarrassed. I suffer from cooking anxiety sometimes.
Kayla made some great turkey burgers based off of an Emeril recipe. Kayla is awesome at just whipping delicious dinners off the top of her head…I’m kind of jealous.
Kerry made SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE! My heart sang as I ate it’s caramelized brown sugar topping goodness.
And while I’m on the topic of nostalgia, have any of you seen the new Winnie the Pooh trailer? I was a fan when I was a kid, but I HATED the sequels they made when I was in middle school and high school. They seemed so uninspired.
But this new Pooh movie looks so good. Seriously, my eyes started watering while watching the trailer – the combo of nostalgia and Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know” made me emotional.
This new Pooh movie seems full of heart, which I attribute to John Lasseter’s involvement. That man is a GENIUS!
And one final note for today.
Harry Potter. Three days. OMG! I am going to cry. It’s the beginning of the end of a huge chapter of my life. That sounds melodramatic, but I’m being serious.
