Back to School Time

Utah State University Logo 2012So yesterday was the first day of school for me. For those of you who don't know I am going back to school to finish my degree in Landscape Architecture at USU.

Random Highlights:
They gave out famous Aggie Ice Cream on the student center patio. I had Aggie Blue Mint - it was awesome! Did I take a picture? oops...I was too distracted by all the deliciousness  - I know bad, bad blogger. So here is one courtesy of the internet:

Aggie Blue Mint
Yes it really is blue...and delicious! Here is the offical description:
Mint flavored ice cream lightly tinted blue with cookie pieces and white chocolate chunks.

Speaking of food I have found my go-to salad place. Luke's Cafe has an amazing Southwestern Chicken Salad:
Southwest seasoned chicken breast, black beans, white corn, charred pablano and red bell peppers set on a bed of baby greens and tri-colored tortilla strips and served with avocado ranch dressing.

Are you drooling yet? The avocado ranch is to die for! Okay moving on...

I got a job and start training today, but believe it or not I had to sign a non-blogging agreement so you will not be hearing about that. Needless to say it is not working at the campus library!

Tonight they are showing the Avengers out on Old Main Hill - I haven't seen it yet so I am excited. Everyone I've talked to loves it! Opinion to follow.

So one of my new textbooks weighs the same as a toddler....okay so Amazon says it is only 7.4 pounds but I don't believe it for second - it's as thick as a Harry Potter and a full 8.5 x 11"

I am working on getting settled in to my new place...Makeover pics to come.

All my professors so far have mentioned that they have a pretty heavy course load, so I am going to have to whip out my time management superpowers. With blogging, etsy, working, school & maybe trying to have a social life I am pretty sure I have at least 3 nervous breakdown lined up for this semester. Nevermind that, I am still loving life!

Anyway that's a pretty decent snapshot...I've been trying to catch up on all of my blog reading, but I am still way behind! What have you all been up to while I've been moving cross-country & settling in?


  1. The Avengers is awesome, I hope you like it as much as I did! And I'm technically an Aggie too, but from UC Davis. I love the idea of Aggie ice cream, we don't do anything like that and our color is navy blue too!


  2. Yeah....GOOOOO Aggies! We'll even include A&M!


A Comment!!! For me!?! Aww how sweet!
