This past weekend was pretty exciting to say the least. On Friday my sister and her husband had their first child! Sophia Kumiko was born at 441 PM, and she is the most precious girl I have ever seen. Everyone in our family is so excited, and now I can say that I have 2 nieces and 2 nephews!
My niece, Sophia!
After seeing Sophia at the hospital on Friday night I rushed to campus to see my sorority sisters! It was one of our sisters 22nd birthday. We had a ton of fun and even sang to Living on a Prayer, so I guess it doesn’t get much better than that. I also learned that iPhone’s can last in the snow for over 4 hours… no worries everyone it wasn’t my phone just my best friend’s phone On top of all that I FINALLY GOT TO SEE MY BIG SIS. She was gone in Spain last semester so seeing her was awesome.
I was pretty much excited for everyday of this weekend, but all for different reasons. Saturday I was excited because it was the first basketball game I have been to in a very long time! With winter break and recruitment I missed a good 2-3 games, which is a lot for me. We really needed a win in the Big East on Saturday, and we got it in overtime. On top of that I gave Trip, our mascot, his bone at the beginning of the game. I’m so proud that he doesn’t drop his bone anymore!
Butler vs Marquette; win in overtime!
All in all it was a pretty good weekend. I miss not living on campus anymore, but being able to go back on the weekends isn’t too shabby. Expect a post about me complaining about this. Until then have a great Monday!
If you didn’t know we have a new bulldog on campus! Blue 2 is still around, but he now has Blue 3 aka Trip to teach and learn the ways of being a Butler bulldog.
Blue 3 aka Trip!
Butler wasted no time in getting Trip his own Twitter, Facebook, and website started. There are many rumors going around about Trip, and whether Blue 2 is healthy or not. According to reliable sources from Butler, Blue 2 is still healthy and well, so Trip will most likely not be stepping up anytime soon.
Trip is all the rage around campus right now. People are trying to find any chance to be able to see Trip. Today there was a meet and greet with him at Starbucks. He seems really sleepy most of the time, but I would be too with the amounts of events he is doing! His announcement was a huge deal, and many news channels were here on his introduction day at Hinkle. The day Trip was announced at Hinkle there was an audience of over 10000 people awaiting his arrival. He has also been on many news stations around the area. Check out this video for the day when Blue 3 was announced from Blue 2′s point of view!
If you want to get to know more about Trip I suggest you check out his twitter, facebook, or website! He is possibly the cutest puppy I have ever seen! Many tweets from Butler students said something like, “The only school I know where students will flock to Starbucks to see a dog #butlerstudentproblems” I will have to agree, I am pretty sure we are the only school to see this happen, and also see grown college men gushing over a dog.
