I'm back from northern Michigan and FINALLY have wireless set up at home so I'm blogging from the living room.  It's great not to be cooped up in my room.  I had a blast up north snowboarding with my brother, Kurt and a couple of his friends.  It was 55 degrees and sunny.

(Wayyyy too many layers....I had to take them off later in the day.)

I've still been horrible at taking pics but it's more difficult at home because I eat with people and forget haha.  (Also, I eat worse at home so that's nothing I want to share. ha)  

Before I came home last Friday we hosted the diversity conference for Chicago area dietetic interns.  For lunch we had different themed stations.  All the food was really great.  All the food isn't out yet in the pics obviously...

Our food lab at school...

Mmmm hummus...

Did I mention that we got to wear awesome oufits?

I got to bring home some of the leftovers too!  I went back to EL for the night to stay with Keefer and we decided to get up early and go out to breakfast, YUMM!
One state to go...

Yess....The Mitten!

For some reason I snapped breakfast pics only...

anddddd...this pic of my cat trying to eat my squash!

I promise I will get back in the swing of things when I get back...if I'm lucky and remember I'll get some pics this weekend.

It has either been in the fifties and sunny or raining since I've been home.  Spring is coming...which means SUMMER is coming.  My FAVVVVV season!

Off to bed, nighty night!
