04-24-2013: Gardenias our old landlord gave us are finally blooming! It’s been nearly a year. They haven’t died, but haven’t thrived either. Until now I guess. They’ll be coming with us when we move.
On that note, anyone know of any awesome affordable Uptown apartments that are coming available and will accept a dog?
04-21-2013: Patrick get’s a separate update. We celebrated his birthday yesterday (it is tomorrow).
That cake is called I-Used-to-Be-Thin-Mint by Debbie Does Doberge. It was baller.
I am so happy to marrying this guy in less than a year. I am so happy he is a year older. I am so happy that he is smart. I am so happy that he wants our kids to play soccer and to be their coach. I am so happy that he loves my food and will probably never leave me because of it. I am so happy he loves me.
But most importantly, and chief among the reasons I am happy with Patrick, I am so happy that he is so good looking and attractive.
When my out-of-town friends think I drink too much.
Being expected to go to work on Ash Wednesday.
11-10-2012: Lil bro Andrew is in town and I couldn’t be more excited. Making jambalaya in cold weather and enjoying having family here, or I should say, MORE family here. I appreciate all my friends who are family, but man is it nice to have some blood around.
209 is rolling deep in the 504 these days.
11-06-2012: Election Day. No one is surprised by who anyone voted for ever. One unexpected thing: no stickers.
Also, a very slim margian for keeping the tolls on the Crescent City Connection.
10-31-2012: This week from my perspective: meh. Been feeling very under the weather. I lack any energy and am highly irritable. With Sandy and the election, media has been over stimulating and far too expert for me. Everybody becomes an effin’ genius during these situations. I didn’t realize until this week that I don’t have too many Yankee friends. The ones that I do have listen closely, are aware of their surroundings, and do what they need to do. I am sure they are having a miserable time this week and there is nothing I can do about it. I am glad that they are safe.
This is a coworker and I dressed as The Rock, Paper, Scissors for Halloween (for us, this is work themed). I also went as fat, office, poor Audrey Hepburn. A lot of people got it. Boo :(
Looking forward to next week, I am expecting a guest from Stockton. My brother. For a few months. I couldn’t be more excited.
BTW: I will try to do better at updating this and taking more pictures of New Orleans. I keep forgetting to do that when I’m so caught up enjoying the only time I have out!
10/20/2012: Got a visit from Kati and Gabe today. They came to drop me off some awesome presents for checking in on their myriad of cats while in Disneyworld on family vacation. I received a Tiana ornament (pictures to follow, I’m sure) and a Princess and the Frog cookbook. I must say, if children in New Orleans are able to cook the stuff that’s in that book, I need to work on getting my kitchen game on track. They have babies workin’ with deep friers in that thing.
Gabe took to Lupe very quickly. Gabe will be 3 soon. I love the little family I’ve made in New Orleans and am excited about the little families that they’re making on their own. I do miss everyone though. I feel like my being in grad school while working and planning a wedding has distanced me from people as much as moving to the West Bank or Mandeville might have sometimes.
Ah, well. Only for a little while.
