Last weekend was my sorority, Alpha Chi Omega’s, national convention in St. Louis, Missouri. It was a busy yet incredibly fun weekend!
I’ve only been to St. Louis once to visit a college, and I never got a chance to go to the arch on that trip. Our (the chapter president’s and my) hotel room had a great view of the arch.
One of many things I was EXTREMELY excited about was meeting Melissa D’Arabian. THE NEXT FOOD NETWORK STAR. As a Food Network junkie, she’s a celebrity to me. Like actually, one of the reasons I applied to go to the convention was so that I could meet her. She is an amazing speaker, and she was just as sweet and friendly in person as she is on TV! And funny. I kind of wanted to be her best friend.
All the lunches and dinners were served to us. This was my favorite dinner – chicken breast stuffed with pesto (or spinach? I couldn’t tell) and served with cheesy risotto. Yum!
There were lots of desserts at the convention. Not that I’m complaining.
The fact that people actually bought these made me laugh. Not that I didn’t kind of want one myself.
It was a wonderfully fun weekend, but now I’m back at work getting back into my routine. Which is tough!
