Let's hear it for the high-fiber diet team!!

Well, we did it! We took first place in the Nursing 110 Nutrition activity!

The other vases are filled with berries and nuts (left) and beans, peas, and lentils (middle)

I am so proud of how well this group of 9 people worked together to pull off a gorgeous table display!

What hospital patient wouldn't want a breakfast tray as beautiful as this??

We were awarded Starbucks gift cards, a pair of flip-flops with the hospital logo on it, and a first place ribbon for each. I would have preferred extra points or (my real wish) not to have to take the final, but I just glad that we won. The moral of the story, children, is play with your food!

In a related story, another team was all wearing the same custom t-shirt. On the front was a logo and on the back was the saying, "Riding the ship all the way to the bottom." I didn't understand so I asked my seat-mate who was wearing one.

Cindy explained that their clinical group started with the usual 10 or 11 people, but one by one, people dropped out of the program and now they were down to 5 remaining members. One girl had complained that she thought she was going to fail the program and another girl told her not to quit, but to make them throw her out if they wanted to. She said to "ride the ship all the way to bottom, just like Titanic." And that became their team motto.

I thought it was perfect!

Off to study for my last 3 tests, all happening in the next week!
