Life List

Inspired by blogger Erin from the olive notes I decided to write my own top 10 things I’d like to do and/or accomplish in my lifetime. I’m sure over time some will change but for now, here goes…

10. learn how to surf (obviously not as well as the guy in the pic)

9. travel to India

8. learn a new language well enough to converse with locals

7. become a mother

6. learn how to relax and not worry as much

5. soar high up in the sky via hot air balloon

4. sail the Greek Islands

3. compete in a triathlon

2. travel to South Africa

1. live in Italy (even if it’s only for a year, my heart aches to be back)

now it’s your turn :-)

Oh Vespa…Where Art Thou?

If only it were safe and practical to drive a vespa in Austin. I would totally rock the S*#& out of a tangerine (my new dream flavor) vespa! Attached to this post are pictures of my dream…for now I will settle for the ever-practical Honda Fit. Instead I’ll sport the shit out of the Electric Blue Pearl Sport version of the Fit.

Alec…..the front seat is still reserved por vu.

The Rain is Robbing MEEE!!!

For all of you that are having a deliciously, dry and sunny summer….well consider yourselves lucky! From the beginning of June until now we have had nothing but rain, overcast skies, and future rainy ten day forecasts. I can’t tell you how many events I’ve had to cancel because of this soppiness…….well 3 to be exact, but still.

This past weekend I had planned to rent a boat with 7 other people on Lake Travis, well the rain took care of that one and cancelled my dreams of sailing across the swelling lake with rain debris. Then yesterday the first 3/4 of the day was beautiful, which was great considering I had a swim lesson with a seven year old at 6:30…..sorry Eryn, do not pass GO, do not collect $200.

Needless to say…..the rainy weather is robbing me of money and fun times :-(

Looking to sign the wedding contract and put down the first deposit so we can get the ball rolling.

And Alec baby, I promise, I will make a more valient effort to post more often. Ya know how it is, when I first started writing this here blog I was in the “honeymoon” stage of things, I was all giddy and couldn’t stand to not post and add pictures from my somewhat interesting life. Now, we’ve gotten to known eachother’s flaws and we’re learning to live with one another, I’ll try harder to be more present in this marriage :-)

I know, I know. I’ve been slacking. I don’t know what it is with me lately. I read all 12 of my favorite blogs and by the time I’m done, I’m worn out. Most of the time too worn out to update my own. I know, it’s selfish of me.

Saci, is glaring at me right now as if to say, “why mama have you hidden my funny and naughty stories from the rest of the world?”

Ok so here goes. Not much is new. We’re at the point in the Firenze wedding plans where we need to sign our contract and send over a deposit. Ya know, the part that will make my parents really nervous and will thus cue even more questions. God send me strength.

Last night Alex and I went to my friend Elyse’s 23rd birthday celebration at Baby Acapulcos. It was fun, except that she dropped a bomb that she’ll be moving back to New Mexico to be with her boyfriend until he graduates in May. Arggg, there goes one of my very few friends I have left here in Austin. So that was molto sad. I guess I’ll survive with my online relationship with Miss Atown……aka future Best Woman.

Alec, maybe I’ll make you a a “BW” pin, kinda like they did in “You, Me, and Dupree” for Best Man. If you haven’t seen the flick the pin had a lightning bolt on it and of course said “BW.”

I’ll leave you guys with that. For now, it’s time to enjoy an overcast Fourth of July…woohoo Go America…….?
