Congrats to Matt for not only making it through two challenging years of business school at Duke, but for getting awesome grades along the way and a fabulous job in the end!! I’m so proud:)
Matt is officially finished with business school! Wooo hoo! He doesn’t graduate for two more weeks, but finishing eight terms at Fuqua is definitely something to celebrate!
The Dean hosted a reception at the Nasher Museum with all kinds of goodies:
Good thing some of these folks are heading to Dallas with us!!
Early to bed, early to bootcamp! Night.
Another weekend over:( I didn’t do a whole lot, but enjoyed it nonetheless.
On Friday, I headed to Duke to help out at the Stop Hunger Now campaign that was going on at Fuqua Friday. I enjoyed being on an assembly line and was in charge of the funnel station:)
After volunteering, Matt and I went in search of the Foothills Brewing Sexual Chocolate that we had last year around Valentine’s Day. We found it at the Federal, one of the local neighborhood bars – I love this little nook so much! And the beer is must-try.
On Saturday, I headed to Men’s Warehouse to see Matt try on a tux:) They had the slim-fit one that he wanted, so we just need to set everything up for the group, and we’ll have another thing off the list. The only bad news is that rentals have gotten soo expensive – I feel bad for the guys, but I guess it’s still cheaper than bridesmaids dresses.
Afterwards, I headed to the lovely Geer St. Garden for a dinner out with friends – this is becoming another favorite spot! I had essentially the same dinner I had the last time we visited, because it was that good…
The Pranqster Belgian golden,
the jalapeno cheddar hushpuppies,
Kath had never visited Fuqua, so we took her for our weekly social hour + buffet, known as Fuqua Friday. They had a great spread of bbq and other southern foods. My family got a kick out of the fact that there’s free dinner almost every Friday! We are so spoiled here and sad that there’s only 6 more months to go:(
I held baby Mazen, who decided to take a nap during dinner!
On Saturday, we headed home to Hillsborough for the annual Christmas parade. I was busy talking, and actually didn’t watch too much of the parade, but it brought back memories from when I was little. And the weather was awesome – I even got a tiny sunburn:(
