Good morning! In case you all (I’m hoping there are a lot of you) were wondering, I did not fall off the edge of the blogging world. I did, however, fall into the world of interviews and tours here at CC…July is one busy time in the admission office! I have met some pretty incredible kids from all over the country in the past few weeks, and whether it’s LA or DC, they are pretty impressive. I love the kids that CC attracts…and I’m sad that I won’t be on campus when these awesome students come to school! Okay, let’s be honest, I’m just sad that in a year I won’t be a CC student…
Because I have a grand total of three blogs in two months (wow, I better get my booty in gear) I am going to update you on my initial ‘Summer 2010’ list:
-Rachel and Jeramy’s wedding (June 14th) was a blast! Megan and I had a great time rocking our black dresses (yes, I wear BLACK to weddings…I wear black to everything) and heels, meeting up with old high school friends, drinking white wine, and dancing the night away to Michael Jackson. A favorite quote from the evening was “The Berry girls are really keeping this dance party going!” Mom and Dad Berry should be so proud.
–House sitting here, house sitting there (May, June and July) was great. I spent the first part of the summer staying at Kari Kwinn’s (CC Assistant Admission Director and awesome friend) house in THE MOST COMFORTABLE BED YOU COULD EVER DREAM OF. Seriously people, I have no clue where it came from or why I was blessed to sleep in this thing, but it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. Amen, random bed gods, amen.
I stayed at Horst (CC Men’s Soccer coach, and my honorary grandfather) and Helen (his amazing wife, and my honorary grandmother) Richardson’s house while they spend time in South Africa, going on safari and attending the World Cup (jealous!). It was great to have a house to myself, and to spend time with their sixteen-year-old cat Steiny. We became best friends. Ask Meg Seward…she’ll tell you.
A month later, I was lucky enough to be offered a room in one of my friend’s houses on Cache. Thanks to Kate, Hannah, Sophie and Geoff for opening up their house to me! I am lucky know such fantastic people.
And NOW I have finally moved into MY apartment! It’s awesome…and Kate compares my room to a Caribbean bungalow. It includes these wonderful treasures:
This amazing anthro hand-me-down:
And this green beauty.
Actual pictures are coming soon.
–Mom and Dad’s 26th wedding anniversary (June 9th) and Megan’s 24th birthday (July 19th) were fun! My mom spent some time here over the Fourth and both parents were here this past weekend…I am so proud of them. They have been together for 33 years, people! What an incredible testament to patience and work. I love them. Megan spent her birthday in Austin, TX, but last weekend finished her first half-marathon at the Broadmoor! So fun…and another testament to hard work! I am proud to have such a fun sis.
Everything else on the list is coming along nicely…and is including a trip to Aspen next weekend with Kate to see Michael Franti and Spearhead in concert! I am really looking forward to that…its going to be a sassfest.
Also, thanks to Sarah of the SHU box for your nice comment on a past blog! I was so thrilled to see that!
How are your summers coming along? We would love to see you on campus…Colorado summers are beautiful!
See ya on the flipside…
