Happy Holidays! now show me The Interview
It has been a crazy couple of weeks and the next few look to be a little nuts as well.
I just got back from my first trip to New Orleans for my darling friend’s wedding. Spent about 48 hours there and packed everything in I could. Ate bugs at the Audubon center, played with butterflies, went on a steamboat cruise (and munched on delicious fried chicken in formal attire), walked Bourbon street, Canal street, Frenchman’s quarter and went to the aquarium. And devoured beignets at Cafe Du Monde (ok – and had a powdered sugar fight). OH – and had more fabulous bread pudding than I could have hoped for.
But most importantly I was there for the wedding of an amazingly sweet, kind and beautiful person.
And I saw a goat. And a wookie wearing platforms. And purchased a “Huge Ass Beer” (hard cider but i digress). Carrying the ridiculously over sized bottle around made me feel like part of a special club – people would cross streets and go out of their way to let me know they had one too. Some even asked for pictures with me and my “huge ass beer”.
I looked even cooler after I had poured out the cider and had it filled with iced tea. Everyone thought I was way more boss than I actually was – drinking a “Huge Ass” long island iced tea or something. I did not disabuse them of that notion.
My sister-in-law and I even joined in the street parade celebrations of a couple of weddings.
My plans for a double feature of Into The Woods and The interview are thwarted – I really hate it when ridiculous communist dictators thwart my Holiday plans – so it will just be Into The Woods with Amber, our moms and my niece.
This weekend I head to Fort Worth to pick up my new car! And probably eat at In-N-Out Burger, because I love my husband.
January 5th brings my first surgery – I’m kinda curious what this whole going under anesthesia thing is like.
Starting to think I may regret having told my husband he can youtube my reaction… but I’m sure I’ll be witty and eloquent… right?
Here’s to an exciting end to one year and the beginning of another.
