26 in 26

Today, I turn 26 years old.

It also happens that my sister is getting married to her boyfriend of 10 years.

That means today is going to be one helluva celebration in the family. Not only will we be welcoming a brother to the crazy, chaotic mix, but the original Everythingtarian (ahem, moi) is one year older, which not to be confused with one year more mature.

A lot has happened in the past year. There’s been tons of ups and downs, some of which have been recorded on the blog and some that have not. Here’s 26 of my favorite things that happened in the past 365 days, along with some things I am hoping for during the next 365…

  • In January, I saw Anthony Bourdain live and fell even more in love with this bad a$$ cook. That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be willing to steal his TV show if the Travel Channel offered.
  • visited Charlotte, NC to see one of my best friends in February and along the way, got to meet up with the wonderful Whit. Good times were had.

That’s 15 things.

I owe you 11 more.

How about some things for the coming year?

For year 26, I hope…

  • …to drink more Spotted Cow Beer. I have a feeling that won’t be a problem.
  • …to travel to either Argentina, England or some other exotic country (Morocco? Egypt? Greece?).
  • …to pay off my credit cards. Debt-free is the way to be.
  • …to continue the process of self-acceptance.
  • …to learn more about photography. It may or may not be a 2011 goal.
  • …to turn outward. It also may or may not be a 2011 goal.
  • …to never ever turn down dessert. Ever.
  • …to laugh. A lot. A lot. A lot.
  • …to continue to learn, progress and work hard at my job + career. Mama doesn’t need no man to make those dolla dolla bills for her, right?
  • …to spend as much time as I can with family, friends and loved ones.
  • …to enjoy each and everyday I am blessed with.

And for your foodie pleasure, a preview of my birthday breakfast…

Caramel Apple Crisp Waffle.

Nuff’ said.

I hope 26 is ze best!
