Winter Highlights

My blogging has taken a hit in frequency this winter…it’s hard to keep up when completing grad school applications, applying for scholarships, and trying to pass a language placement exam. But, I miss it and want to try to keep it up! Plus, I don’t want to lose the habit for once I have more time and can post more regularly again!

Since there’s too much of a backlog to go over everything in detail, here are a few of my winter highlights…

Impromptu trip to New Orleans
Work reasons brought me to New Orleans on short notice, so we made a mini-vacation out of it and had a great time exploring the city, trying delicious food, and listening to jazz music. Highlights were the d.b.a. jazz club and beignets at Cafe du Monde:

After New Orleans… family time in Wyoming/Colorado.
Highlights were going to two Denver Nuggets games and meeting the beautiful new baby of one of my best friends!

The trip also included lots of great food at my favorite Denver restaurants. I love the vegetarian restaurant Watercourse…in particular because of their delicious vegan milkshakes!

The other noteworthy Denver restaurant is breakfast joint Snooze, featuring creative pancakes:

After food and fun in Denver, there was some great skiing in Breckenridge and Frisco:

And, finally, last but not least, prince charming took me to a ball this weekend. 🙂

More soon, but now I’m off to study Hebrew adjectives!
