One of the things I love most about Elon is the “Elon Bubble”. This is the most common nickname for the school; everyone on campus believes we are in our own little “bubble” because we are located in an area where there isn’t much going on around the town. But I love the bubble. I love that the Elon community is so close; it really makes it seem like a home away from home. Because Elon is a relatively small school, it’s easy to spot familiar faces every time I’m walking to class. It’s one of the little things I really enjoy about this place.
One of my favorite events at Elon is College Coffee. Every Tuesday, coffee and treats are set up around the Honors Pavilion (one of the most beautiful spots on campus) for faculty and students. It’s amazing how many students (and professors) show up! I love this little tradition because it reminds me of how close everyone is in this “Elon Bubble”. Not to mention the coffee is incredible (Starbucks, of course).
Just wanted to share with you my Tuesday morning…I’m always in such a good mood when I come back for College Coffee. There’s something about free coffee and seeing friends that makes me a happy girl!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your Turkey Day yesterday. I had such a wonderful time with my family and Andy yesterday; I couldn’t have asked for a better holiday!
On Wednesday I finally saw my wonderful boyfriend Andy after about a month and a half (much too long!). He saw the new house and greatly approved! I am so happy/thankful that I was able to spend this holiday with him. His family was kind enough to let us steal him for Thanksgiving while they celebrated in New Jersey.
So what is this Lentil Loaf that I speak of? Never thought of an alternative to turkey for Thanksgiving, have you? Well this is a vegetarian Ryncarz classic for the holiday – it’s somewhat like a stuffing but with lentil beans and vegetables. Delicious!! But don’t worry; we didn’t deprive Andy and our cousin Rachel of their healthy serving of meat. My dad picked up a turkey breast from Boston Market so the meat-eaters were satisfied! The meal was very yummy!
And the food coma that ensued was just as wonderful.
My family learned that for Thanksgiving every year in Kansas City there is the “Kansas City Power and Lighting Plaza Lights”. It’s where just about EVERY resident of Kansas City gathers in The Plaza to watch the christmas lights turn on all at once. My family, KC amateurs, celebrated the Lighting for the first time and it was great!
Plus, the best part of it was that Eric Stonestreet was there (Cam from MODERN FAMILY!!!). Best. Night. Ever.
Oh how I’ve been waiting for this moment! I am currently sitting in the airport anxiously waiting to board my plane to Atlanta, Georgia! Then I will have a one-hour layover (where I will sip Starbucks tea and people-watch) then get on my second flight that will take me HOME!!!
After a less than pleasant taxi ride to the airport, I can’t wait for this traveling to be over with! My taxi smelled like rotten eggs (ew) and my driver was 20 minutes late. The only good parts about it were a few interesting conversations about fast food, the Bronx, and Thanksgiving dinners.
I could not be more excited to be seeing my family so soon. I am counting down the minutes!!
P.S. I was just flipping through People: Style Watch and saw a similar look as above on Nicole Richie. I love the combination of tough and girlie!

Yes, it is that time of the week again. Time for one of my FAVORITE shows in the world … Modern Family!! My suitemates and I look forward to this show every week…we will plan our entire night around watching it. My favorite character is Gloria…her accent is probably the funniest thing I have ever heard. And I crack up every time she yells “Jayyy!”
This will be the perfect ending to a cold and rainy day. I plan on making a delicious cup of hot chocolate to drink during the show (with mini marshmallows of course).
Speaking of family, in t-minus 2 days I will be leaving Elon to see my wonderful and amazing family in Kansas City! I could not be more excited to see them for the holidays.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
(BTW, I want you to know that right as we began taking these pictures, it began pouring. So much for straightening my hair...)
