Hello friends! Goodness, time flies when you’re a busy college kid.
I don’t know about you, but I had a jam-packed and FUN weekend! I almost feel like I need a weekend from my weekend, but that’s beside the point. There is WAY too much to put into one blog post, though, so I’ll start with Friday night.
Every spring, here at Northwest, we have an event called “Evening”. Basically, think “prom-minus-the-dancing”. We all dress up, go out to dinner, then meet at a fancy venue where our student committee provides dessert and coffee etc, along with some entertainment. This year, we heard an improv group…they were alright. But the real fun of Evening is getting all fancied up and seeing your school friends outside of school. Are you ready for some pics? Aaaaaaaand go!
We often go in groups to Evening rather than with one “date”. My group consisted of (from L to R) Melissa, Marisa and Elizabeth, and….
…Ron, our fearless driver…and my date!
The weather could not have been more perfect!
Ivar’s on the Seattle waterfront was our dinner choice – and a tasty choice it turned out to be!
Oh, and by the way...ED wasn’t invited. No sir.
Here is my dinner: I started off with a sourdough roll – soft, warm, and basically dinner roll perfection. And they even gave us SOFT butter! Next, Ron and I split an appetizer of crab cakes. They were served with a tangy tomato relish (maybe with balsamic?) and a spicy aioli. For my entree, I had grilled lingcod with fresh asparagus and VERY garlicky yukon gold potatoes. My tummy was full, but it all tasted super good!
A sunset of dreams.
And lovely, squinty eyes. 🙂 We were probably laughing.
Evening took place at the Experience Music Project (EMP) at the Seattle Center. And I can’t go to the Seattle Center without snapping a shot of our dear Space Needle!
The EMP is an interactive museum, mostly of the history of Rock n’ Roll. This tower-like structure of guitars is one of the most popular highlights.
Here is the “interactive” part of the EMP at its finest! There are several rooms in which to “jam”…they have some combo of drums, guitar, bass and keyboard. We like to pretend we’re rock stars, obviously!
As this year’s Yearbook Editor, Marisa had to give a short speech – an introduction to the yearbook, basically. She rocked it!
Melissa threw caution to the wind and volunteered to be part of the improv show – she succeeded in entertaining us!
Here’s me with the date!
And just in case you ever wondered, me and Beyonce (also known as Michelle) frequently sit together in chapel and make music jokes. Uh-huh! And she’s pretty stinkin’ awesome!
All of the roomies – together in our finery! I simply adore each of these girls. They are all beautiful (beautiful) gifts from God, willing to help me as they can on my journey, because they love. Ohhhh I love these girls!
Stay tuned for the rest of my weekend! It was jam-packed, let me tell ya!
