Well what better way to welcome myself back to this blog than to give you guys an update on my 101 things in 1001 days. I am excited to report I have marked few more off my list and look forward to marking some more off over the next few months.
Since moving to Mobile, New Orleans has been on the top of my list and for my birthday this year, I decided it was the perfect destination. I was lucky enough to spend my 27th year in the beautiful city of New Orleans and cross off an item on my 101 list. While in New Orleans we ate delicious food, of course we visited Cafe Beignet, and the highlight of my weekend was meeting Manny Montana live and in person. If you don’t watch Graceland on USA then you need to.
After my trip to New Orleans I had two days before I hopped on a plane to San Diego, insert crossing off item number 58, Packing in under 45 minutes. Between work and laundry I didn’t have time before Tuesday to pack so about 45 minutes before I had to be at the airport I packed up my suitcase. It was a super proud moment.
While visiting Christine in Missouri we decided to cross another item off my list and make macarons. It was a great weekend with an amazing friend. I will give you one piece of advice for Macarons…don’t convert to US measurements. 🙂
I have started on list of reading new books. So far I have two down, In Defense of Food and The Fault in Our Stars.
I am 1/3 of the way to owning a nice set of luggage. I have been traveling a lot for both work and pleasure and so I decided it was time to invest in a good medium sized suitcase. My roommate was thankful too, since I had been using hers. I decided on a Samsonite, this one, in blue. I plan to purchase the carry-on next and then contemplating between the largest suitcase or the garment bag.
Final list item checked off is due to my lovely friend Dusti, she sent me a beautiful gold address book that I just adore. I have already filled it with as many addresses as I could. It is such a thoughtful surprise.
