INSPIRATION, GRATITUDE & SURPRISES

This weekend should be a fun one! Today I am off to meet New York Ali for a hike. When she’s in town we usually make hiking together a top priority…that, and a frozen yogurt…usually in that order. Tonight I am making a southern dish for dinner. I’ve decided it would be fun to cook dishes inspired by my destinations on the road trip and I’m watching movies that highlight the different cities as well! Doesn’t that sound kind of silly and fun? Tonight we start with shrimp jambalaya and either watch Fried Green Tomatoes or Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil…maybe both! We’re pretty crazy on a Friday night so you never know. Saturday we’re meeting Brian’s family at the Natural History Museum for a tour. I honestly can’t remember the last time I was there…maybe never? It should be interesting and I always love spending time with his family- I am not just saying that for brownie points either. Saturday night we’re having dinner with friends at a new restaurant and I always love trying new restaurants. Sunday, Brian is taking me on a date to see The African Queen at the Arclight- the theatre is showing romantic old movies in celebration of Valentines Day. What a sweet idea huh? I know nothing about the movie other than Katherine Hepburn is in it and I like her so I’m in. I was pretty pleased with him for finding something off the beaten path to do. Nice one, Bri guy. Oh and guess what I am doing Monday morning???? I am taking a trapeze class! Rather ridiculous but sounds pretty fun right? I haven’t been this excited in a long time.

-What inspired me this week?-

Reading your comments on the happy post.

Brainstorming Brian’s 30th bday. Somebody’s going to be 30 real soon!!

It really may be possible to spend a week in Paris before my 30th bday. If nobody can come with me then I will go by myself!

Ordering Rosetta Stone tapes. I’m back French!

Signing up for Tango lessons starting Monday night. They run 6 weeks. I’m back Tango!

-What am I grateful for this week?-

I have been in a delightful mood for no reason at all. It’s so nice when that happens.

-What surprised me this week?-

How good dinner at AXE was! I had to laugh though because my meal was filled with parsnips- I can’t escape those little guys!
