I promise that blogging really is one of my favorite things. I have had a bit of a harder time adjusting to being home than I thought I would. Our housing situation has been a complete roller coaster ride, and I felt like blogging about it would bring you all down as my spirits have been pretty low. But, I think we may have turned a corner in that department, and I'm hoping to share some exciting news with you very soon.
I hope you forgive my lack of posts and that you stick with me for a week or two until we settle in a little more.
A few weeks back, the lovely Sarah from Living Well tagged me in a fun question and answer game about some of my favorite things.
1. What is your dream job?
I would absolutely L-O-V-E to own a little French bakery with my sister. We'd call it Soeurs Patisserie for Sisters Bakery. Our shop would be sweet and charming and have a lovely navy blue awning and flower boxes in the windows! And we'd know all of our customers by name!
2. Favorite Halloween costume idea?
Seeing as I have decided that rather than turning thirty right after Halloween, I will instead be celebrating the 30th anniversary of 1980, I will vote for an all out perfect 80s costume similar to the ones my favorite NYC ladies once wore!
3. Favorite dish to bring to a party or potluck?
My friend Anna's uncle is a caterer, and he makes the most delicious baked brie I've ever tasted. He scores a wheel of brie and wraps it in Pillsbury crescent rolls and bakes the cheese until the crust is golden. Then he mixes a box of brown sugar, a stick of butter, 2 tsp of vanilla, a cup of chopped pecans, and a few dashes of bourbon and heats the mixture in the microwave until melted and blended. The praline mixture is poured over the brie and served with sliced apples and buttery crackers. DEEEELISH!
4. Favorite magazine?
5. Best restaurant you've ever been to?
Without a doubt it would be Hidden Kitchen, a private supper club, in Paris. You can read all about our unique experience at this amazing spot HERE...
6. Favorite thing about fall?
I would typically say football, but seeing as how poorly this season has started, I think I'll go with a different favorite thing about Fall... pumpkins!!! Every year on the first weekend of October, my parents would take my sister and me to the French Market to pick out a pumpkin. It was something I always looked forward to, and it always signified that Fall had arrived!
7. Most romantic love song in your opinion?
My roommate from college sang our first dance song at our wedding reception. We chose Etta James' At Last, and each and every time I hear it, it makes me so very happy. I will never forget that feeling of exhilaration as we danced for the first time as husband and wife!
