My last DTRC meeting- Mary Katherine, Rachel, and Me
Rachel will be the new Diet Tech at Baylor Specialty, I know she will do great!
On my last day, my mentor, Judy Suneson, LD, RD, CNSD took Rachel and myself out to lunch. I will miss her!! She has been my personal text book on Clinical Nutrition. Rachel is one lucky girl!
After lunch, Rachel and I went back to meet the other girls for goodbye cake. Here is when the tears began!!
Since Judy decided to steal me away on my last day, My Baylor Specialty crew requested that I come back for 'goodbye lunch' with them on Monday..How could I refuse! We had BBQ Baked Potatoes and Dr. Lalani brought in the famous Baylor Cake and Ashley made Root Beer Floats! YUM!
Me cutting my Baylor Cake-YES, I ate the cake and my root beer float.
Some of the Therapy Team (LtoR): Dr. Lalani, Rachel, Me, Terry, Ashley, and Mary Ellen
Missing: TOO TOO many to count. :(
I had to take a picture of my personal space! I loved my office, as small as it was..it was mine!! Complete with my Diet Coke in reach ;)
So, the end of a spectacular experience and the beginning to new excitement. I have grown and developed more this year alone, and I feel I am so ready for this next step in my, OUR, future!
Here inspired the new look to my blog. Something different to open the next chapter..
Here we go!
This is such a viral video- I even saw it on the news this morning! It is CLASSIC, though, and had to share! Jordan and I were watching it and really made us wish we had thought of something like this!
Anyway, both Daphnee and Brittany are bird dogs, and so far, Brittany has done well enough to get the job done during trips in season. This weekend Jordan decided to turn out some pheasant wings to start training Daphnee so he could take her this year. Well, this girl, although never have seen a bird, began pointing as soon as he brought it out! So, I was excited, camera in hand, when he brought the wings out when I got home on Monday night to show me. What a pretty girl she is!!!
My very scruffy husband..he has been off for over a week, and decided not to shave!!
My friend Pepa and I decided to take a short 55 minute flight to visit. I had never really been to Lubbock before, so I was satisfied with being a 'tourist' in this flat land. Both Diane and Joe completed their undergrad at Tech, so it wasn't like she was completely out of her element, but, she was still so happy to have us visit.
Our first night: Triple J's..kind of like a Texas Roadhouse. Eat the Nachos! Delish!
Rachel (Di's old college friend/co-worker at the hospital), Diane, Pepa, and me!
After dinner, with FULL bellies!!Buddy Holly was born and raised in Lubbock..we stopped by for a photo-op outside the museum dedicated to her. (It was dark, and my camera was having troubles, sorry for the quality!)
Saturday was decided to devote our time to the SUN! The Tech campus opened an enormous rec center, complete with lazy river, water slide/diving area, lap pool, sports pool (v-ball/b-ball), and lounging 3in deep area. It was GREAT! It also helped that the weather was amazing, a cool change from the 108 degree heat. The 90s were pleasant.
Diane in I floating by in the Lazy River. Very Cool, literally!
We ate at another local eatery called Gardski's Loft- YUMMY! I had Chipotle Chicken and Di had Parmesan and Artichoke Chicken- both were delicious! After dinner we treated ourselves to Wine and Dessert at a place called Manna. They had Wine Flights and the very best Lemon-Coconut Cake I have ever eaten. True Heaven in your mouth, for sure!Sunday Di took me around the Tech campus, which was really beautiful. We saw all the 'main' points including the Stadium, and The Masked Rider.One of the highlights of the trip: The Flagship store for United Market Street. The original! So neat! I think we went there 4 or 5 times over the course of 3 days!
Although there is really nothing to this city, I still was really able to enjoy myself!
Some pros of Lubbock:
- Absolutely no wait times at any restaurant!
- REALLY good food at all the local places
- Everyone is delightfully helpful and sweet
- Texas Tech is a beautiful campus
- You can see the sky for miles! Watching a thunderstorm roll in while sitting on the patio of Gardski's was one sweet light show! The storm was miles away, but we didn't miss a second!
- And, of course, Diane lives there ;)
