I’m not gonna lie, 2010 was a great year for me, one that had a lot of personal firsts. Instead of featuring a bunch of outfits y’all have already seen I decided to share some of the good things that happened this past year.
|Mardi Gras 2010, back at the new old place|
-Bought a house. Not just any house but the house we lived in before Katrina. Bonus points that the outside cats that we had spayed and neutered are still here, 10 years after being born on the front porch. Good story right? I’m still waiting for HGTV to contact me offering a full interior decorating makeover. Oh yea and maybe if they could convert one of the attics into a master suite that would be great too.
|Nadia, my fifth cat|
-Got a dog, a greyhound at that. I’ve been pining for one for something like 12 years.She’s wonderful, and basically just lays around the house like a cat. Of course when she wants to run she wants to RUN. An added bonus is how many of my neighbor’s I’ve met walking her.
|Hubby now calls me flower feet. Ricky is my dad’s name, rest in peace.|
-New tattoos. I haven’t gotten fresh ink since 2004. Magnolias on my feet and a shrimp on my back were this year’s additions. Rattlesnakes, the Louisiana state flower, and seafood- what can I say, I’m always representing what I love.
– Went to San Francisco for the first time. I loved the feeling that place has and I certainly want to go back. I loved how many interesting neighborhoods there are and in many ways that city shares some similarities to New Orleans. Now if we could just get good, cheap Thai food here….
-I’ve been with the same company for 5 1/2 years and I was employee of the year this go ’round. I’ve got the plaque on the mantle to prove it. It was an honor for sure, I love the place I work for. They’ve been good to me so I’m always happy to return the favor.
What’s in store for 2011? I’ve definitely got a few tricks up my sleeve. Thanks for humoring my antics, and have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve.
