Finished

Durham Life

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: The bbq salmon was so awesome!! And how cute are these little pimento cheese biscuits? I’m going to miss Durham’s pimento cheese obsession. More than the pimento cheese, I’m going to miss the people. Good thing some of these…

This & That Weekend

Cooking Durham Restaurants

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…

Parade, Party, Prom

Uncategorized

I had a fun-filled and exhausting weekend, starting with a surprise visit from my sister (well I knew she was coming, but my mom didn’t..). 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…

Pre-Party

Cooking

I spent my evening cleaning! I mentioned on Tuesday that I’m hosting a pre-prom party, and since I didn’t want to put the hard part off until Saturday, I went ahead and took care of all the chores I hate – toilets, shower, cleaning that little space between the wall and the kitchen sink, and clearing off my desk, which tends to get piled up with junk. I feel especially good about these tasks because I’m usually not very productive…

Dessert Bar

Uncategorized

You guys, I just went to a Fuqua Partners (that means significant others of business school students) cook-out and the desserts there were fabulous!  I obv. brought cupcakes. It’s just so much more fun bringing sweets to a potluck and pictures of hamburgers are boring, so here’s what I had tastes of: I think the pumpkin cheesecake bar and the peanut butter rice crispy treat were my favorites. I may have visions of sugarplums in my dreams tonight!…

Dinner in the Garden

Durham Restaurants

Dinner with friends – such a simple way to spice up a week night! Matt and I met another couple at Geer St. Garden. I’d been here once before with my sister and parents in the winter, but today we got to sit in the beer garden! I had one last summer beer before I start thinking about the Octoberfests, brown ales, and pumpkin beers. I’d heard wonderful things about the Geer St. burger because they grind the meat in…

Friday on Wednesday

Uncategorized

Matt is officially finished with his first year of business school! So, the last Fuqua Friday of the year was held this evening. The food was decent – black bean burgers, spicy sausage, corn on the cob, salad, roasted potatoes, and fruit. I went back for some vanilla ice cream that was fabulous. I must buy the lowfat/froyo versions too often, because this ice cream tasted like pure cream. It was heavenly. Not many people were there tonight, but all…

The Recap

Durham Weekend Recap

Spring weekends in Durham have been splendid. There’s just so much to do! Friday, we enjoyed a Mexican fiesta at Fuqua Friday, and then watched many talented Fuquans perform on Fuqua Idol. I went to the event expecting to hear some decent singers/musicians and left absolutely blown away! My favorite performer (and the overall winner) sang a fantastic acoustic version of Gaga’s Poker Face. Her voice was beyond amazing. And the Fuqua musical was hilarious. On Saturday, I joined my…
