Welcome to Eat Drink and Be Sperry!
I decided to start this blog which yes is lucky number 4 because I LOVE food blogs, especially ones that discuss more than food, and the impact these blogs have had on my life made me want to share that with others!
I am a 23 year old SECOND (!!!) year grad student at the University of Denver! I am studying Sports Psychology and hope to be a consultant for elite level as well as master level athletes. I love sports and have been an athlete in some form or another my entire life! I will often talk about sports here, both from what I am learning, and what I am watching! Unfortunately I went to an undergrad that while renowned academically is not exactly a top sports school (sorry all NYU athletes), so my top College team is KU! Why you ask? Because it was my ideal school pre-NYU! and they have a bomb basketball team! When I finish my masters degree I am planning to pursue a PhD in counseling Psychology!
I was a swimmer my whole life and still love the water! In high school I began to run, and lately running has become my number one hobby, along with Yoga Sculpt. I finished my first half marathon in May, and am now training for the Rock N Roll Half here in Denver on October 9th! I also am an avid spinner and became a certified instructor in 2010! Someday I hope to break into triathalons!
In addition to sports, I am an avid traveler. I moved to London when I was 15 years old, and my parents still live over there! It was a wonderful experience and allowed me to travel to many amazing places! I spent my first year at NYU studying at their campus in Florence, Italy which was one the best years of my life! Italy remains one of my favorite countries, the history, architecture, and of course FOOD.

Pyramids, Egypt.. yea not my best picture Greece!

On that note, my number one talent and passion is Food! In college I found my inner Top Chef and began living and breathing cooking and baking! I pour over cookbooks (Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From My Home to Yours is my favorite) and live on food blogs! I love trying new recipes and thankfully my wonderful classmates and in college my lovely sorority sisters ate anything I made/make up! They are my best critics!

Basically Eat, Drink, and be Sperry is a place where I talk about food, fitness and life as I encounter it, adventure by adventure in a ridiculous way! I have a large personality and a (usually) optimistic view on life and the future and hope that will shine through! In addition to all of the above, I am an avid reader and occasional couch potato, whose love of the outdoor battles the love of TV! I hope you enjoy reading about my journey and the silly pictures and hopefully successful and delicious recipes that go with it!
I hope you enjoy my blog, thank you for stopping in!
Peace, Love, and Be Sperry
