Posting Up With Jenna - Summer Fun
June 25, 2009
All-American center Jenna Smith is once again keeping Illini fans up-to-date on Illinois basketball during the off-season. In this year's fourth installment of "Posting Up," Smith talks about the tanning contest, getting to know the freshmen and summer workouts.
So about my cooking, hmm, I haven't really gotten to cook very much because of camps and stuff, but we've and getting FREE dorm food - which we all love - with the campers, so I haven't had to cook. I am taking a trip to the grocery store with a few teammates after camp stops so I can get back to my plan of cooking more later in the week. I enjoy cooking when I have the patience, but other than that I leave it to my roommate Charlotte Cooke (former soccer player here) to cook for me! Thanks Char!
So yesterday Karisma, Amber and I went to Chipotle. I know, probably not the best idea for my diet plan, but it sounded soooo good! I have gone there so much over my three years here that they know my order by heart and always tell me `Hi' when I go in there! I don't think that's good when they know me by face, name and order every time I go in there! Maybe I've gone there a little too much! When we were there yesterday Amber had trouble finishing a whole burrito. Karisma had a burrito bowl, which she finished, and I had a burrito, which I finished, but Amber almost couldn't finish hers! Who doesn't know how to finish a burrito?!?! Luckily, Karisma and I were counting down her bites with the assistance of Whitney Toone, who was also there, so that she finished the whole thing. We loved it! You can't waste food!
A few nights ago Karisma, Adrienne, Brianna, Amber, Lydia, Whit and myself were all at my place hanging out and enjoying the water and hot tub (which was semi-cold for some reason! Who would think that a hot tub would be cold?). We were all joking around, just laughing and getting to know one another! It was a lot of fun...the freshman are crazy!!!
Well, I'm off to workout and then hanging with the kids at camp! If you're tanning, please think of me while I can't! ☹ Have a great weekend and please enjoy this beautiful weather!
