Four Things

1. On Friday I have 90 minutes to cook and plate a perfectly executed meal. 1 protein, 1 starch , 1 veg, and a sauce. Two master chefs will be digging into said dish. And I'm not talking about the TV show here, these people are the real deal. I'm petrified.
2. I have been spending a fair amount of time on google street view. Familiarizing myself with the city I'll be in next month. (!!!) Also talk to me about how tough the french language is to learn. All I have down is hello, thank you, and where's the bathroom.
3. Mustard jeans. Why has it taken me this long to realize that mustard colored jeans are in fact a necessity? Especially when they're on sale at urban for $19.99!? Win.
(Sorry that this photo looks like the top half of me is drowning in floral print peplum...)
4. We are moving into a house with a PEACH TREE in the back yard THIS WEEKEND. I'm excited. Hello blossoms. Also I hate moving. I hate it so much right now.

  1. Yay all of these things as well! French is better learned phonetically than spelling. So just listen to people speaking French and you'll pick it up better.

    Asking "How's it going?" is my favorite, it can be said either as:
    ca va? (said: saahw-vaahw?
    comment allez-vous? (cohmohntalley voo)

    Wooop woop!
