Last minute rush to find food on-campus

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activities… Today has been no different.

I had planned on going out to lunch today, and while I did actually leave work, it was to run errands. Therefore I didn’t get a chance to grab a bite to eat.

I’m fortunate to work on a university campus that has various food options available… So I took a quick walking trip to the student union in search of a low-carb meal.

Originally, I was going to grab a lettuce-wrapped burger from one place, but really felt like a salad and remembered the new Greek themed spot. Here is my beef gyro Greek salad (I added my own avocado) and Diet Coke:    (I ate most of the beef gyro before taking the photo)

While it was one of the more expensive lunches that I’ve had recently, I feel like it not only is a healthier option, but fulfills my desire to stay on the low-carb track.

Cheers to all! *clinking salad filled forks*


Avocado Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps

Even though I actually made this a few days ago, I thought it was way too good not to share!

Ingredients: chopped up hard boiled eggs, avocado, celery, green bell pepper, and dill pickle. A spoonful of mayonnaise, a little mustard, and salt/pepper to taste. The wraps are romaine lettuce leafs, whole.

Just mix and plop onto the lettuce leafs… So yum! I think next time I would put less mayonnaise, and add some sort of cheese, like feta or blue cheese.

Bon appetite!


chopped ingredients all ready to go


finished product… makes my mouth water!


And I’m Officially Done With School (for now)

Last night was my final time turning in an assignment. It’s been a crazy long and curvy road, but I’ve FINALLY completed my bachelors of science degree!

The best part is that I will be graduating with high honors… Something that little, immature, and not ready to take on the world Beth never would have imagined, when she first stepped onto her college campus almost 16 years ago!

While I plan on getting into a masters program, it won’t be until fall 2017… I need to take a breather – I know what you’re thinking, “A breather? Didn’t it take you long enough to get this degree?” Well yes and no.

I made a conscious decision 4 years ago to go back to school, and started taking classes on my 30th birthday (literally). Once I finished all of my general education requirements, I was fortunate to get into a great accelerated online program at a private university. The past 18 months have been insane and grueling. So I feel like a little break.

I want to focus on things that makes me happy, like traveling, hanging out with friends, relaxing and watching tv without feeling guilty… You know just simply live my life.

I am excited to attend the graduation ceremony back East though! I’ll finally get the opportunity to meet my cohort classmates that have been through the same pain and joy, laughter and tears.

Plus, I’m excited to travel to a part of the country that I have yet to visit. One that is so rich in our country’s history and culture.

In the meantime, I must consider how I want to decorate my graduation cap. I’ve pinned a whole bunch of ideas to my Pinterest board… But I saw this quote last night, and thought it was too funny not to share!

It’s Wine O’Clock Somewhere…

…and that somewhere is right here!

Ahhhh! I just submitted my final paper for my career as a bachelor student. This little baby wine glass is just what the doctor ordered.

Just one more day of working on final exams, and I’m officially a graduate (with honors, I might add). It’s been an extremely long road, but I’m beyond excited to be through with the never-ending discussion boards, exams, and essays!

Anyway, here’s a photo of my teeny tiny glass of wine. Cheers!

It’s tiny but might!
