Acceptance Celebration

Posted on: September 14, 2010

Well, after half applying to school, I rushed to get the other half in the mail. And though I haven’t received anything back yet. I sent some nosy emails to admissions and found out . . .

I’ve been accepted to Natural Gourmet Institute!

Of course, this is assuming that everything goes peachy with the student loan. The good thing is, not only did I get accepted, I was lucky enough to somehow slip into the Fall part time semester of this year!! I for sure thought I wouldn’t make it.

There are SO many things running through my head right now . . . More on that later in the week.

Chris and I decided to go to LongHorn Steakhouse for an impromptu celebration dinner.


They were having a special for $29.99 which gets you an entree, salad and either a dessert or appetizer to split. We went with the appetizer. They only had 3 choices so we decided on the Texas Tonion.


I had the AWESOME Sam Adams Octoberfest beer. I’m falling in love with Sam Adams . . . Chris said I’m lucky he’s dead šŸ˜‰


The entrees weren’t impressive. I ordered a filet crusted with fontina cheese. I will never order a steak crusted with cheese again. The fontina cheese was just so bitter and totally clashed with the steak. I scraped it right off!


I had a great time though. One of my favorite things to do is go out to eat with Chris. We always have a great conversation and were always giddy about the prospect of food.

By the time the entrees came, we were actually stuffed! We each took half our steak and potato home with the intention of making steak quesadillas tonight, but he went golfing so I made a salad instead.


I’d just like to mention that I took that picture BEFORE I put the rest of my chopped up baked potato in there. Laugh all you want. It had substance! šŸ™‚

Congratulations! That is very exciting!

Ok, I just had to Google Longhorn Steakhouse. Do the onions really look like “T”s?

Lol. I have no idea why they called them that. They weren’t T shaped at all!

Congrats! That is so exciting! How long will you be in school for it?

Thank you!

Ill be there about 10 or 11 months. After that I need to work a 100 hour internship and then see what happens. I have no specific thing I want to do. I’m just seeing where this takes me instead of trying to control the journey for once in my life. šŸ™‚

Congratulations, Val!

Congratulations!! I am so happy for you!

Congrats!! That is so exciting. šŸ™‚
