I apologize that it’s been a minute since my last post…between work and a dash of vacation, it’s been a little hectic around here. But today, I’m uber excited to share a few pictures from my recent outing to Sandestin. In addition to traveling for the Southern College Health Association Conference, my in-laws also included me and the hubs in their annual trip to the Sandestin Wine Festival.
During my time at the SCHA conference, I had the pleasure of presenting one of the breakout sessions about partnering with community entities to enhance student engagement in health and nutrition promotion. Other breakout sessions with our speakers included peer education, stress management for college students, medical management of eating disorder patients, and other topics pertinent to college health. After the conference ended on Saturday, I got to spend the rest of my time with the family at the wine festival.
One highlight of the festival was Paula Deen as one of the celebrity chef guests! And guess what? I even got to chitchat with her before they whisked her away on a golf cart for her lunch session. I mentioned to her that her banana pudding changed my life. She laughed and said “well, it ain’t yo mama’s banana pudding!” and I almost responded with “you’re right, my mom is filipino and doesn’t make banana pudding” 🙂 If I had to be honest though, I really wanted to ask her about her diabetes medication, but I did not want to have that kind of a conversation in such a public place 🙂
I apologize for the lack of commentary with today’s post; I mostly wanted to share some fun pictures with you guys. Soon I’ll be posting a review of the calamansi beverage that Nomsi in San Francisco has sent me— I can’t wait to share 🙂
