Hi all! I hope everyone had a merry X-mas (I did!), and I’m sure you can understand my blogging infrequency since leaving 105degrees. I’m here to give you the details on graduation day, then most likely take another few days off. I apologize too that I’ve been unable to comment on all your blogs…I’ve got a LOT of work to do here at home to get my life reorganized. I’ll be back in the New Year with a vengeance, though. Bring on 2011!
For breakfast on graduation morning, I had a mini strawberry cupcake for breakfast before going to the gym. Hey, it’s got apple, beet, strawberry, and coconut—sounds like a perfect pre-workout snack to me; am I right?
In the afternoon, I headed up to 105degrees early to work on polishing my cookbook proposal while sipping on a Blueberry Bee smoothie. With blueberries, honey, white chocolate, and bee pollen, it’s my favorite smoothie at 105.
I’d prepared a big batch of flax crackers to serve with my hummus buffet.
Here’s a peek at our class’s collection of final meals.
Cristina had donated some bread sticks to complete my hummus trays.
I presented my cookbook proposal to the class and all our guests…
…and then received my Level II diploma from Haylee.
Leaving 105degrees was bittersweet for me. Saying goodbye to Russell, Haylee, my classmates, the Academy, and all the friendships I made there was tough. I know I’ll be back to visit, though, and in the meantime, I know I have a lot of work to do to get my career underway. As much as I loved sharing my time at 105 with all of you, I think I’ll enjoy sharing the coming journey even more. So now, it’s ready…set…GO!
