It's hard to believe this past week marked my halfway point through my first fieldwork site. After the first couple of days I thought it might take forever. Now, I think it will be over before I know it. I am on the downhill! I have already learned so much. It seems like I learned nothing in school, comparatively.
We stayed in for Valentine's day and grilled steaks. We also finally saw The Internship. It was pretty funny. It was a nice evening of hanging out. I hope you all did something special! We decided to get in the spirit of the day so we wore our best red and pink to work. Sorry the picture is not the best, but I thought I better prove we were trying to celebrate!
The Husker Classic was in town. They played a few Western teams-Oregon State, Pacific and Gonzaga to be exact. They went 2-2. They had an Alumni tailgate so we went and checked that out.
The food was fantastic! This was their first year having this tournament and look how many people were at the tailgate...I think this will become an annual tournament.
Look at us showing off our Husker spirit!!!
We got new rally towels, which I think I will use for working out. And they even gave us peanuts and cracker jacks-how authentic!
Everyone at the tailgate put their name in for door prizes, and I won a baseball signed by Darin Erstad! His daughter won the other one so I think I was probably the most excited!
Here are a few action shots of the team in their new uniforms.
All in all, we had a great time! We both got a little sunburned...oops.
I have continued to craft. It's nice to have some more free time. I am working on another wreath. Here is my progress so far. I love burlap!
We hiked up Camelback. It was closed for about a year and just re-opened a few weeks ago. It was my first time back up since it has re-opened. I have to say, I love the new trail!! It was pretty cool. I feel much safer, and it seems easier. We didn't really take a break the whole way up so either I have gotten into much better shape or the trail is much easier. I'm going with the latter. The new trail gives much cooler views than I remember. It was so packed!! I have never seen so many people at the top.
Do you see all these other people?!?! So crazy!!!
At least we don't look out of place for taking pictures then because most everyone is a tourist!
Hope everyone has a great week!
