Workout plan: elliptical and yoga
I am back in Chi-town again after a fun weekend in Nashville. The wedding was on Sunday night and was lots of fun. It was held outside, and aside from the inevitable Nashville humidity, the weather held up for it.
The only annoying thing was that during the actual wedding ceremony, my nose decided to start running, so for the whole ceremony I was sniffing and constantly holding a tissue up to my nose. I’m sure people were like Wow, that girl is an emotional wreck, crying before the bride has even made her entrance. The only other little mishap that was kinda funny was when the priest was having the bride and groom take their vows. He turned to Meredith and was like, “Repeat after me: I, take James….” That would have been fine… except his name is BRANDON. haha. Seriously, though, the wedding and reception were wonderful. Good food, cake, drinks, music, and great times.
I really, really liked the food. It wasn’t super gourmet, which I liked, but was really good. They had some Tennessee BBQ (pulled pork), and then steamed vegetables and salad amongst other options. I put a little pulled pork on my plate and then filled the rest of it up with steamed vegetables and salad sans dressing (I either eat my salads without dressing or with just a drop. Usually I just add a little salt and then squeeze some lemon on it or add a drop of fat free ranch mixed with hot sauce). I liked the food, because it was tasty, had a local touch to it, and was healthy.
Our flight didn’t leave until Monday night, so Dean and I walked around and explored the nearby Vanderbilt campus. What a beautiful campus! Very green….tons of trees and plants everywhere.
We walked around the area with many of the sorority and frat houses, and I got really excited when I came across the AOPi house!
Aopi was the sorority I was in in college at Miami University.
I was curious as to what AOPi’s reputation was like at Vandy, so I did some google research and came across this:
Alpha Omicron Pi: Like one of my friends said, “well, they always win greek week sorority football”. Big girls but nice.
Dean looked at me and was like “That doesn’t sound like a sorority you’d be in!” Haha. I explained that Aopi at Miami was clearly super cool because I was in it. Ha. Ok, maybe it wasn’t for that reason : )
