I tried to change the name to "See a Broadway musical" because Matt and I saw both Wicked and the Lion King when they were on tour here, but the system won't let me change the name.

Note added to goal Run a 5K race
2014-7-26 Matt and I ran the Blacklight run. He ran the whole thing, and I ran about 2 miles and walked the rest.
Brett gave me a guitar and I've been going through the book I got when I started trying to learn Mom's guitar. I think I'm going to have to clip my fingernails on my left hand in order to play the chords. Boo. Guess I'll have to quit playing for a few weeks before the wedding.

2014-7-27 I'm halfway through Mel Bay's Grade 1 book and I just put Grade 2 on my wishlist. I can play several major chords (A, B, C, D, E, F,G, Am, Bb, Cmaj7, Dm, D7, Em, G7) and a few others when I have the chord diagram in front of me. My best songs are ones that have the chords close, so I don't have to move that far too fast. Little Big Town "Boondocks", George Gershwin "Summertime", and Norah Jones "Come Away with Me" are ones I can do pretty well right now.

Student worker schedules are like schedule tetris. =)
12/8/13 Made a delicious pot of chicken and andouille gumbo using homemade chicken stock. Mom helped with the recipe. =)
4/5/13- Cafe East near Vets and Clearview- Not bad, but not great. Fun party atmosphere in upstairs room- Maggie and Travis' birthday party
4/7/13- Cafe Degas on Esplanade- OMG so good, such a cute place. The front room was picture perfect and the side patio where we had our wine was adorable and relaxing. In love!- My 30th birthday with Matt, Mom, and Dad
4/11/13- Little Tokyo on N. Carrollton- NEVER going there again. Couldn't split checks for two couples even though we were at a table of 8, charged an entree splitting fee without clearly advertising it in the menu, service was not good, and entrees came with noodles instead of rice- Ryan and Adriana's going away
5/25/13- La Boulangerie on Magazine- tasty sandwich, but the wheat bread was TOUGH- Shopping with Michelle and Angela
6/1/2013- Superior Seafood on St. Charles- yummy but STRONG frozen pomegranate mojitos- Michelle's birthday
6/22/13- Rolls N Bowls on Metairie Rd- laundromat break with Matt after flea fogging- good, but a little expensive and no low carb options. Bubble tea was very tasty.
8/7/13- The Lakehouse in Mandeville- with Mom- not bad for lunch and quaint.
11/2/13- Jaeger's in Harahan- Matt took me out for chargrilled oysters to celebrate me passing comps. Sooo delicious! Saturday special $11.95 a dozen!!
11/9/13- Dakota in Covington- Matt and I went to check it out for a rehearsal dinner location. Food was expensive, but really good, especially the gumbo and house made irish cream, but the sweet potato nachos had bleu cheese crumbles that were overpowering. Manager was very nice.
11/23/13- Drago's and Crazy Johnnie's in Fat City with Matt. This wasn't the first time we'd gone to each of these, but the first time was since this list was started and I forgot to add them on here. Drago's makes delicious, but expensive charbroiled oysters. Crazy Johnnie's makes good, but not great steaks at a reasonable price, but they are closing (our theory is the bad service is to blame. We waited over an hour for our steaks).
10/12/13- NAMI Walks- Raised $85 for the cause.
2013-9-21 "I Will Always Love You" at Dr. Herlihy's house for the CSI/COGS Back to School Bash
