About Me:

My name is Steph, and I am a senior Marketing major with a Communication Studies minor. Since this is my last year at Butler, my main goal is to enjoy every moment that I have left, while doing as much as humanly possible. I am a marketing analyst at the Butler Business Accelerator, a Speakers Lab tutor, and a Butler blogger (obviously). I also am an Alpha Phi, the President of the Butler University Student Foundation, a member of Alpha Kappa Psi (a professional business fraternity), and a member of the Butler American Marketing Association. In the small amount of free time that I do have, I love crafting, watching large amounts of television, and enjoying my favorite comfort foods, like sweet tea.

A Photo Summary of my Thanksgiving Vacation

I’ve been in Albuquerque with my sister, Natalie, and brother-in-law, John, for about 6 days now, so I figured that the best way to share all of the cool things that I have done here would be in pictures….so here we go:

Sunday: Natalie and John are big time football fans, so every Sunday, John moves the TV from their bedroom into the living room…and the day is devoted to football and only football.

Their Sunday afternoon routine....

Monday: My sister and I shopped…shopped…and shopped some more.  She taught me how to coupon at grocery stores and even at Target (a college kid’s dream), and then we visited their outdoor mall and had the chance to grab some more bargains.

Tuesday: We started the day by picking up John’s brother, Paul, at the airport, then we did some sightseeing around town.  We ended up at Old Town, an area of shops, restaurants, and some historical sights in Albuquerque.

A 300-year-old church in Old Town...

Later that night, we took a tram up to the top of the Sandia Mountains to see the sunset.  They are called the Sandia Mountains because they turn to a watermelon-ish color at sunset, which was beautiful…but I didn’t get any photos of that.  These will have to suffice.

It was gorgeous to say the least….

The sunset over Albuquerque...

Wednesday: We hiked all the way to the top of the mountain (it was 6 hours of hiking, in case you were wondering), and then took the tram back down.  It was pretty cool to see everything again, but in full daylight this time around.

One of the towers that held the tram together...

The view from the tram...

We were really impressed with ourselves for hiking all the way up…so now we obviously feel like the mountain is ours, like we own it.

Our mountain....

Thursday: Thanksgiving Day….which I will blog about…later!
